London tribute 2010 for Jackson cancelled

Quote
Vienna
- The Michael Jackson tribute concert in London that was scheduled for next June has been cancelled, as the show's Austrian organizer announced Friday that is being liquidated.

Promoter Georg Kindel and his now-defunct company World Awards Media and Jackson's brother Jermaine had already disappointed European fans in summer by first announcing a Vienna tribute concert for September and then cancelling it because of a lack of stars and funds.

World Awards Media's majority owner, Vienna-based consumer fund Superfund, issued a press release on behalf of Kindel's company, saying that it would be dissolved.

After the failed Vienna show, Jermaine Jackson said London would be the ideal concert location because that was where Michael Jackson had planned to stage his comeback concerts.

Jackson died from medication overdose in June, shortly before the scheduled London performances.

Interesting how the article states Michael died from a "medication overdose." That's a polite way to put it and nice to see.

Quote from: "MJJ1982"
I can't find the article on that website.
Here's the working link:
London tribute for Jackson cancelled, Austrian organizers say

The article's source is Deutsche Presse-Agentur, so it looks legit and reliable. The website Monsters and Critics is legit and reliable also, despite the odd name.

I'm not so happy, because I cancelled my trip to the exhibition, just to go to the tribute...
My suspicion grew in the last few weeks, so I should have known better.

I am also a bit disappointed. I wanted to go there. I thought Michael would come back there...  I thought people would lose hope if London tribute were over or something.
I just hope nobody will lose faith!!

Why do you think he'll come back on Christmas? :?  Just because the London tribute was cancelled doesn't mean he's coming back Christmas day! :?  I wouldn't get your hopes up. If nothing happens, you don't be disappointed... :|

Something tells me that it is not going to be Christmas Day...but that's just my intuition.
Of course, I would be more than happy about it.
But I think it's better for us to just let it surprise us someday.

Here is the link to the story posted by the OP:

And another story about this:

JERMAINE JACKSON'S TRIBUTE SHOW FOR MICHAEL IN JEOPARDY
18 December 2009 16:21
A global tribute to MICHAEL JACKSON planned by older brother JERMAINE has been thrown into jeopardy following the liquidation of the Austrian company organising the event.
Jermaine teamed up with promoters at World Awards Media to schedule a star-studded show in Vienna, Austria on 26 September (09) in honour of the late King of Pop, but the event was scrapped amid planning problems and shifted to London for June 2010.
But now the rescheduled show looks to be in trouble - an executive decision to dissolve World Awards Media was made at the end of November (09). A company statement did not provide further details.
Former World Awards Media chief promoter Georg Kindel told the Austria Press Agency he did not know if Jermaine would still be going ahead with the event.
The Thriller hit maker died on 25 June (09), aged 50.

Sorry guys but I have to say-I told you so! On the thread asking who will be going most of you were showing great interest and some were even going from other countries and I said I will not go, not plan to go etc as look what happened to the last one in Vienna. This does not surprise me in the least. If after all these aborted half hearted attempts if he does eventually manage to pull one off there will be no ticket sales and no audience as no-one will have any faith in him. So much for all you who thought it would be Michaels big comeback.
     If Michaels "death hoax" was left to the sole responsibility of Jermaine to organise then Michael would now be doing the gruelling 02 concerts and would be in the "land of the living" as Jermaine could not organise a drunken *iss up in a brewery!!
 :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I'm sorry for you, guys, who planned to go there. Although i'd unlikely have the opportunity, it is still very disappointing. Hoax or not, MJ deserves a great tribute and the impotence of people involved in organizing it is just frustrating....

I'd have to laugh though if now AEG will step in... that would be some deja-vu!
