Music News: The Jacksons Announce 50th Anniversary Concert At Blenheim Palace

In celebration of their milestone 50th anniversary, legendary Motown supergroup The Jacksons will embark on a world tour in 2017 that will make its way to Blenheim Palace on Sunday June 18th for a show as part of this year’s Nocturne concert series. Featuring brothers Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon, the spectacular live show will include renditions of all the group’s hits as well as their trademark dance moves and outfits. With other UK shows this summer including only a handful of festival dates, this will be the only opportunity to catch a headline concert from one of the most enduring pop bands of all time.

The Jacksons – Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)

Special guests will be R&B kings Kool & The Gang. Having toured with The Jackson 5 in the ‘70s, the band’s funk-drenched pop hits, including ‘Get Down On It’, ‘Celebration’, ‘Ladies Night’ and ‘Jungle Boogie’, helped them define the sound of the era and they went on to become the most sampled band in history.

Kool & The Gang – Get Down On It

The Nocturne concert series, which last year featured performances from Elton John, Jack Savoretti and The Corrs, runs from June 15th to 18th and The Jacksons and Kool & The Gang join award-winning composer Max Richter on this year’s bill, with more names to be announced in due course.

Tickets start at £45 and are on sale now.
