“Huge stars such as Leona, Usher and Justin have expressed enthusiasm about the project," the Sun quoted a source as saying. However, the details of the one-off show promoted by AEG Live has not been finalised yet. The officials are allegedly working around the clock to put in place a fitting tribute to the legend.
The insider said: “There has been frantic activity both in AEG"s London and Los Angeles offices. Executives want to stage a touching tribute to Michael and think the O2 would be a fitting location." The concert will reportedly feature maximum possible video clips of Jackson rehearsing for 'This Is It" concert in LA.
The source added: “It will be a celebration of Jacko"s life through his music. “The producers want to avoid a sombre memorial tone and intend the evening to be a joyful event focusing on Jacko"s extraordinary legacy."
A date is yet to be settled, but promoters hope to stage it this summer. The late King of Pop was supposed to perform a record-breaking stint of 50 shows at the O2 arena.
