Jackson tribute gig 'inappropriate', say brothers

Michael Jackson's brothers have slammed a concert set to take place in Britain honouring their dead sibling as 'ill-timed' and inappropriate.

Jermaine and Randy Jackson have criticised the gig, due to take place on 8 October at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, as it clashes with the Conrad Murray, Jackson's former doctor who has been implicated in the singer's death two years ago.

'While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honours our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death,' they said. 'As everyone knows, those proceedings commence September 20th, and this Michael Forever concert takes place in Cardiff, Wales, on 8 October.

'In light of this, we feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event and its promoter, Global Live.'
