Melbourne (ANI): American singer Jermaine Jackson has confirmed rumours that The Jackson 5 are reuniting, and that they will be touring from next year. Jackson also revealed, while attending a pay TV launch in Sydney on October 29, that their brother Michael Jackson will join them to resurrect the 70s hit band.
"This has been a long time coming for the Jackson family to get back together," News.com.au quoted Jackson as saying. "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," he added.
