The self-proclaimed King of Pop plans to unite with today’s biggest names in music to perform his hit songs at his 30th anniversary gala, scheduled for Sept. 7 and 10 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Latin singer Ricky Martin will shake his bon bon onstage when he dances to “Don’t Stop ‘Till You Get Enough.” Marc Anthony will croon “She’s Out of My Life.” Anthony, who is scheduled to perform both nights, also may sing his upcoming Rob Thomas-penned single, “Tragedy.”
Rap artists Lil’ Kim, Mya, Deborah Cox and Tamia will contribute to “Heal the World.” Missy Elliot and newcomer Nelly Furtado are expected to perform Elliot’s “Get Ur Freak On.”
Shaggy, Jill Scott, Monica, and Luther Vandross have still not decided what they will perform.
Diana Ross, however, will no longer participate.
Jackson and his brothers began rehearsing for the show in Los Angeles on Friday.
A combined total of 40,000 tickets for the concerts–priced $45 to $2,500 per ticket–sold out just five hours after going on sale on July 31, Launch.com reported.
