The concert will be called "Michael Forever--The Tribute Concert." It is a one time only event that will be shown around the world in 2D and 3D. Cardiff's Millennium Theatre was chosen as the venue and can house 75,000 people. 

"We wanted to do something  decent and worthy of Michael's  musical genius yet something  fun and authentic that you  would envision Michael attending with excitement and joy  surrounded by talent that he  respected and loved," stated Chris Hunt, president of Global Live Events who is organizing the concert event.  The concert celebration would take place on Oct. 8, but the line up has yet to be announced. "When I was told some of  the names of the artists performing I knew it would be fit  for a king. If my son was here  today he would feel the same  way," Michael's mother, Katherine, stated at a Los Angeles press conference. Tito Jackson added: "I  know my brother would be very  proud to see all the artists that  he admired and respected so  much come together for this  special event."

Most of the Jackson family is really excited for the concert that is scheduled to be no less than 4 hours long. They look forward to this special night that would celebrate Michael's work in light of the 40th anniversary of his solo career. "I will be there along with as  many members of my family  that can make it. It is intended to  be the biggest and best concert  in the world for many years to  come," Katherine said.  "This is an exciting moment for  Michael Jackson fans from  around the world," Hunt said. However, brothers Jermaine and Randy do not seem as enthusiastic about the concert. "While we  wholeheartedly support the  spirit of a tribute that honours  our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due  to take place during the criminal  trial surrounding Michael's  death...As everyone knows, Those proceedings commence September 20."

Despite the time of the concert, the show will on. "This extra special concert, paying tribute to one of the world's greatest pop icons of all time, is fantastic news for music fans all over the world and it is a huge boost for Wales to host this spectacular one-off show. It's going to be unique and truly extraordinary," Hunt said. Wales will be booming around the time of the concert as fans will be swarming to the venue from every corner of the world. Hotels and restaurants will be packed and all of this business will help Wale's economy. "I'm proud that once again the  eyes of the world will be on  Wales."

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to three charities Michael Jackson supported: The Prince's Trust, a cancer charity, and Project Los Angeles.

The line up for the concert will be revealed on Aug. 3 and tickets go on sale Aug. 4. "This tribute will be  something spectacular and I  know that he would approve," said Lo Toya Jackson.
