Jackson tribute concert postponed to 2010

The tribute concert for Michael Jackson which was set to take place in Vienna this month has been rescheduled for London's Wembley Arena in June 2010.

The 'Thriller' hitmaker's brother Jermaine Jackson who was organising the concert said that the event had to be postponed as the desired line-up of performers could not be assembled at such short notice.

The concert will now take place to mark the anniversary of the King of Pop's death, reported BBC online.

"Numerous stars were just not able to change their schedules to make a live appearance at the Vienna event possible," said Jackson about the event which was due to take place on 26 September at the Schoenbrunn castle in Vienna.

Earlier, representatives for Mary J Blige, Chris Brown and Natalie Cole said none of the three would be at the concert, as previously announced.

"However, due to the short time frame it was not possible for many of them to change their schedule so that they could be on stage in Vienna on 26 September, therefore we decided, after careful consideration, to change the date of the tribute concert to June 2010," Jermaine Jackson said in a letter.

"Now we have eight months to put this monumental show together and not just eight weeks," added Jermaine.
