Jermaine Jackson announced the world tour this morning in Australia while helping launch a new “greatest hits” TV channel for paynet Foxtel according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“This has been a long time coming for the Jackson family to get back together,” he told the Australian Associated Press.
"It is just the timing, so what we've been doing is working on the music and all the logistics. It is going to be more like a family affair, Janet's going to open 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."
While the news of a Jackson 5 tour appears to supersede rumors of a solo concert series, Jackson has not officially confirmed or denied the possibility.
