The Jackson 5, the return

23 years have passed since the last time when The Jackson 5 performed together. Since then, many things have happened: Michael Jackson has became Caucasian. Michael Jackson rocketed his career as a solo performer. Michael Jackson was accused of pedophilia. Michael Jackson underwent thousands of aesthetic (?) surgeries. Michael Jackson got married and divorced. Michael Jackson almost threw his son down from the balcony of a hotel in Germany. Michael Jackson became a Muslim. Michael Jackson was caught dressing like a woman in Bahrein... phew, did I mention anything about Michael Jackson's adventures?
Although the rest of the members didn't reach the fame and fortune that Michael did after leaving the Jackson 5, they all (Jackie, Tito, Marlon, and Jermaine) pursued solo musical careers. And maybe the nostalgia of old times (and the need of new business opportunities) has driven them to think of reuniting.
The plans could be even more ambitious than just releasing an album with their greatest hits. A series of 250 concerts in Las Vegas and some alternate projects could also be on the scope of these guys. Most surprising of all: Michael Jackson could reappear with his older brothers.
If you're really wishing to see this band reunite, I'm afraid to tell that you'll have to wait at least a year. It looks like, if Michael and his brothers get an agreement on this project, the final result would only be seen untile 2008. Meanwhile, you can start buying all kind of Jackson 5's memorabilia and reserving tickets to Las Vegas for the next year. It looks that it's really happening.

Im looking over the fact that your incorrect about the surgeries and the throwing of the window as he had held him tight .etc

Basically what i want to say is the jacksons performed live in 2001 on september the 12th the day after the bombings, and they performed with michael and sung many classics for 30th anniversary so your dum..

Thanks for your comment Devok, and thanks for stopping by this humble site!

Just to follow up your note, I want to remind you that Michael Jackson has gone through several surgeries in the last decade at least, which is not a secret by any means... and most (if not all) of them took place after the Jackson 5 disbanded officially. Secondly, I am not mentioning that Michael Jackson threw his son from a balcony, but I clearly state that he ALMOST did. But thanks for pointing that out as well.

I didn't know about the Jackson 5's performance after the 9/11, thanks for sharing that info with us! I guess some of us never heard of it because the media was reporting about the bombings 24/7 at the time, so probably the news about the Jackson 5 didn't draw too much attention.
