The Jacksons Launching Unity Tour
The Jacksons are on the road. Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson are launching their Unity Tour in Canada, with a show at the Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario Wednesday night.
Marlon says concertgoers can expect an energetic performance packed with hits.
While it’s been nearly 30 years since he and his brothers have gone on tour, Marlon tells Canada’s QMI Agency they can still break out the dance moves.
He explains that they’ve needed to “fine tune some things” in rehearsals, but they’ll “never forget” how to put on a show.
However, the singer admits age was a motivating factor in organizing the tour. Marlon says they thought the time was right for them to hit the road because they aren’t “getting any younger.”
The Unity Tour is The Jacksons’ first trek since they toured behind their “Victory” album in 1984 with their brother Michael.
Marlon admits they’re still going through the healing process over Michael’s death, and the loss adds an emotional component to their performances.
But he says Michael was always supportive of his brothers. He also believes Michael would have approved of the tour — and possibly joined them if he were still alive today.
The third anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death is coming up on Monday.
