Michael Jackson tribute?

After it was finally announced the tribute would go ahead, MJ's brothers have questioned the timing.

Katerine Jackson recently announced that The Michael Forever show is set to take place on October 8th at the Millennium Stadium, broadcasting to over 30 countries worldwide.

She also revealed that as many Jackson family members as possible would be taking part along with "The world's greatest performing artists."

However, siblings Jermaine and Randy recently said it would be "inappropriate" to play the gig as planned as it falls two weeks into the criminal trial of the doctor at the centre of Michael Jackson's death.

Conrad Murray is the man charged with manslaughter for allegedly giving the 'King of Pop' an overdose of a powerful sedative.

The two brothers told Sky News that they: "Wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honours their brother. [however] We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death."

It's unclear whether the show will go ahead as planned, without the two brothers, or if it is to be rescheduled.

There's another press conference on August 3rd so watch this space...
