Jackson 5 on the road 

MICHAEL JACKSON is to take part in a Jackson 5 reunion tour.

His brother Jermaine told the Australian Associated Press it would be “a family affair”, with sister Janet the opening act. He added: “And of course the original Jackson 5. Michael, Randy and the whole family. We’re in the studio; we’re planning on being out there next year.”

A Jackson 5 get-together would be a major money-spinner for the brothers who last performed at a concert in 2001 to commemorate Michael Jackson’s 30 years in music.

The Jacksons, featuring Tito, Marlon, Jackie, Jermaine, Michael and Randy, came to fame in the 1970s with hits such as I Want You Back, ABC and Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground).
