Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009)
Referred to as the King of Pop, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contribution to music, dance, and fashion, along with a much-publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.
Several members of Michael Jackson's family unveiled plans for a tribute concert to the late King of Pop. The tribute show, supported by Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson, will be held on October 8 in Cardiff, Wales at the Millennium Stadium, which holds about 75,000 people.
