The Jacksons Set To Perform For the First Time in South Africa at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit
“October 9th 2016 will be historic: in our 50th anniversary year, it is the first time The Jacksons will unite to perform in South Africa. We couldn’t be more excited to close out the amazing DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival at the world famous Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. South Africans are a great musical people and we can’t wait to see Johannesburg come out and rock with us!” said Jackie Jackson
Calling all #DelishFestFaithfuls for the biggest, best ever and most fabulous DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival, presented by Nedbank. It’s back for the fourth year over two days 8-9 October, with the main headline act for Sunday, 9 October being none other than The Jacksons.
Following a short reunion of the band in 2010 for the Unity Tour the group played its last show together on December 9, 2010 in Osaka, Japan. The previous reunion of the band, nearly 17 years after the group originally disbanded, was in September 2001 - at which time all six Jackson brothers reunited for two performances at Madison Square Garden for a 30th anniversary special commemorating their late-brother Michael’s solo career.
The “King of Pop”, last played in South Africa during the HIStory Tour at King’s Park Stadium, Durban, nineteen years ago, on October 15, 1997, but this will mark the first ever performance of the original Jackson brothers as a group in South Africa.
Joining The Jacksons on the bill for their first show in South Africa will be Arrested Development, De La Soul, Roy Ayers, Lira, Louie Vega's Elements of Life and many more.
