Michael Jackson tribute concert acts announced

The acts lined up to perform at Michael Jackson’s tribute concert have been announced by his brother Jermaine, with soul and R&B stars lining up to show their stuff.

Titans of soul Mary J Blige, Sister Sledge and Natalie Cole are the biggest names confirmed for the gig, which takes place at the Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna on 26 September.

Meanwhile slightly less worthy artists like Akon, Chris Brown, Angela Bassett and German boyband US5 have been confirmed, and all will be covering the King of Pop’s hits. More acts for the concert, which will be played out in front of 65,000 fans and broadcast live across the world, will be announced at a press conference later on this week.
