THE EVERLASTING DREAM TEAM - THE JACKSONS
In August 1963 The Jacksons started off as a small group of young teens from Gary, Indiana. They went on to become the most recognisable family in music history! In 1979, they began their first world tour entitled, “The Destiny World Tour”. Now, the Jacksons are coming to Puente Romano Club de Tennis, Marbella, on Thursday 8th August 2019.
As they celebrate the life of Michael Jackson, 10 years after his passing and the 50th anniversary of The Jackson 5, original members Jermaine Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jackie Jackson and Marlon Jackson will be performing live in concert.
The Jacksons are guaranteed to put on an amazing show including all their mega-hits made famous with their brother Michael.
The Jacksons celebrate 5 No.1 albums and 18 No.1 hits, including "ABC"; “I want you back”, “Got to be there”, “Rock with you”, “Beat it”, “Thriller”, "Rockin Robin" and many more.
This month we bring you an exclusive interview with Janet Jackson, touching on her views of how the band has developed since they started in the 60s; their favourite, as well as the darker moments of their careers, their new biography “Legacy,” and of course, the interview wouldn’t be complete without discussing their brother, the legend that is, Michael Jackson.
You are celebrating your 50th anniversary at the Puente Romano! Tell us more about your favorite moments within those 5 decades!
There are so many great memories, but when I was able to join my brothers on the all stadium Victory Tour again - that was really special.
What has been the hardest milestone to overcome during the years?
Losing both my brother Michael and my father has been very hard.
Jackie, tell us the story of how you formed the band in the very beginning!
We were performing in local talent shows, just Tito, Jermaine and I, and a guy named Raynard Jones. From there, after winning so many shows, the band started to form.
Over the years many bands have split and gone their separate ways. Besides being a family, what kept you all together?
Our upbringing. My mother and father taught us to love one another, and that family comes first.
In June 2019, it will be 10 years since your brother Michael Jackson passed away. How are you all dealing with this now, a decade later?
It's still very hard. It only softens when I'm on stage singing the songs we recorded together.
In 1979 you went on your first big world tour! Right after a performance you did back then you told the media how excited you were. Are you still as excited about touring today? What are the biggest differences between touring in the 70s and now?
The only difference is that we're older now - but we still love seeing our fans, and they still show up to see us perform. Thank you.
In October 2017 you released your official behind-the-scenes biography "The Jacksons: Legacy" with a massive amount of interview material, as well as your entire story accompanied by intimate never-seen-before imagery. Which are your favourite parts of the book and why?
The whole process was such a trip. Going to storage and looking through boxes and boxes of stuff we had all saved over the years and then seeing it all compiled into a book was a very satisfying project.
After a remarkable time in showbiz, winning endless awards and with many famous fans (including the Queen of England), what do you have planned next?
Apart from touring and recording a new album with my brothers, I signed an EDM/hiphop group called Gold Lemonade to my label Critically Amused. We have big things lined up for them. They are stars in the making - check them out.
