Michael Jackson's tribute concert in Wales

Michael Jackson's mum and four of his siblings announced plans on Monday for a tribute concert later this year in Wales, but two of the late singer's brothers say they oppose the timing of the show.

The pop singer's mother, Katherine Jackson, and siblings La Toya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Jackie Jackson and Tito Jackson said the show is scheduled for October 8 at Millennium Stadium but did not reveal any performers.

Within hours of their announcement of Michael Forever — The Tribute Concert, brothers Jermaine Jackson and Randy Jackson released a statement that said they opposed the show because it will be held during the trial of a doctor charged in their brother's death.

"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," the brothers wrote in a statement posted on each of their Twitter accounts.
