Jermaine Jackson: Jackson 5 Reuniting in 2009

    In an interview with the Australian Associated Press, Jermaine Jackson has announced that the Jackson 5 will be reuniting for a world tour in 2009.

     

    “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."

     

    It remains to be seen if the group is going to actually reunite—there’s been rumblings about them going on tour together since their last reunion in the late ‘80s. Convincing Michael to get back on the road might be a battle (for reasons you all know) but now that I know that Randy is on board, I’m eagerly awaiting this. [Billboard]
