Fans Call For Boycott Of Tribute Concert for Michael Jackson by Global Live Events

It has been announced by a spokesman for Global Live Events, that the rock-group, KISS, including Gene Simmons, will be performing at the Tribute concert. The concert is being organized by some of the Jackson family. Simmons has made extremely negative statements about Michael in the past, and the fans of Michael Jackson are APPALLED, DISGUSTED, and OUTRAGED. Not only is KISS scheduled to perform, but it’s likely that Michael’s children will be “required” to attend this concert. This lack of respect toward Michael simply cannot be tolerated. Incredibly, Katherine Jackson said on CNN, on August 15, 2011, “I know (Michael) would be very excited about KISS.” There seems to be a major disconnect going on here, about Simmons’ previous disrespect of Michael Jackson!

Simmons has said, on his FaceBook page, on June 27, 2009, “When there are children involved…when there are allegations (many) of child molestation…when there are admissions of inviting countless young boys to spend weekends and sometimes Michael’s bed with them (Michael’s quote), clothed or unclothed…makes no difference…when there are payoffs to the children making the accusations in the $20,000,000 range ($20 Million Dollars!!! — as reported by Media) ….There’s more than doubt in my mind.

This doesn’t take into consideration Michael’s children…none of whom are biologically his. All three of whom have had a “strange” upbringing. But then, we don’t know much, except a “Father” who thought nothing of dangling his young child over the balcony (head covered in a towel), so his fans could get a thrill.”

These statements, made only two days after Michael’s death, are the ultimate in disrespect.

The concert is scheduled for October 8th, 2011. Two of the Jackson siblings — Randy, and Jermaine — have declined to participate, stating that the concert would be held during the trial of Conrad Murray, the physician who is accused of causing Michael Jackson’s death. The timing of this concert is deplorable, as is the appearance of KISS, performing Michael Jackson’s music.

Already there has been controversy over this concert regarding ticket sales. The tickets are being apportioned according to the amount of money donated to charities, and unfortunately, that will exclude many fans from being able to attend.

We are appealing to Michael Jackson’s REAL fans: DO NOT ATTEND THIS CONCERT. Do not waste your money or support on this so-called tribute. If you wish to honor Michael Jackson’s memory and legacy, please donate funds to SOMALI RELIEF, as over 29,000 Somali children have died in less than 90 days due to drought and famine. Do what Michael would do and support those that are in need. If you feel uncomfortable about this tribute concert, then DO NOT GO.

  1. Thanks for this statement. It just makes sense to make a charitable donation in Michael’s name. What a beautiful way to remember him.

  2. I almost guarantee that this concert will NOT proceed!!!

    Thats all Im going to say other than HOAX WITHIN A HOAX

    • I hope you are right! This is so awful! The fans, I know, just want to participate however they can. Are you on Facebook? What can I do now? Julie Noel

  3. we’re all appalled at the latest insult.. I’d rather give my money to charity than fill the Jacksons’ greedy wallets. Good idea for fans! I’m pretty sure many with catch this invite for charity. Michael would be pleased and thankful. Moreover, it’s a nice way to stay focused on what’s worth,real and make us proud,dignified fans,MJ’s real “family”. Well done article.
    Ps: i won’t spend any word more in favor of the Jacksons, until a good deed by them proove me wrong.

  4. I am ABSOLUTELY in agreement with this statement! It’s disgraceful that the concert was organised when Michael’s killer is still on trial… and that they’re involving Michael’s children…and now, to add insult to injury, they through Gene Simmons into it? Unbelieveable!!

  5. How are they going to include Gene Simmons in a tribute to Michael when he made those disparaging commments publicly about Michael Jackson? I don’t understand this. Are they crazy or what? Come on family, know your HiStory! Know who you are bringing to the fans because we certainly do and Gene Simmons just can’t hang with us nor we with him! This is a slap to michael’s face.

  6. I am totally supporting this statement.
    Every time I can’t imagine it can be worse – it IS.
    I am absolutely disgusted at this “tribute” and the way Michael’s name and Michel’s children are exploited.
    This is beyond anything.

  7. I think MJ’s mom has gone start raving mad. This concert is in very poor taste to start with and then you put Gene Simmons in it. First off Michael was the best of the best no one can or will ever top him and we fans who truly love him have never forgotten nor will we ever forget Michael. I just lost all respect for Michael s mother. What a shame that she can’t see through all the BS.

  8. I am absolutely in agreement with this statement it is disgusting the way Gene Simmons has been added to the performance list. He has said some terrible things about Michael. Fans need to skip this tribute and put their money towards charity, This whole tribute has been a scam from the beginning,,and now to add this disgusting performer to the list is like stepping on Michael’s grave. And that cannot be allowed. Lets all say NO to this tribute and support Michael..just like we always did.

  9. Kiss my butt! This Tribute concert started off on the wrong foot with a very convoluted ticket pricing… and it’s getting weirder by the minute. This is another Tribute that’s taking a shot at capitalizing on Michael Jackson’ s death without any shame. The trial is still going on, and as a diehard fan I’d say Justice before profits. What’s the matter with the Jackson Family? They have become a runaway train, how can we trust them at this point? Even a tick stop feeding off you when you’re dead! Joe Jackson has recently teamed up with a professional crook Julian Rouas to exploit Michael’ s image with a new line of cheesy perfumes. Please Read:

  11. Another ploy by those on top do not support this concert! They cant even let the man rest in peace! It shows you how powerful Michael was/is and how you can take the body but you will NEVER have HIS SOUL or HIS SPIRIT.

  12. Latoya Jackson inserted her boss from Ja-Tail into the “tribute”; Paul Ring from Ja-Tail is the man who appeared next to Katherine Jackson on CNN yesterday, you know the guy whose name she didn’t even know?? Latoya had no respect for her brother all those years back when she openly stated he was guilty of molestation and has no respect for his memory now. She’s a hypocrite, hanging around his children like she really cares about them when all she wants is the money. Thank you Michael Jackson Estate for taking this on. Where are Katherine’s sons to protect her from this chicanery?
