Jermaine’s Vegas Gig

Jermaine Jackson says the set list for his upcoming Las Vegas concert includes Jackson 5 hits as well as a tribute to departed sibling Michael.

Jackson performs Oct. 2 at Planet Hollywood’s Theatre of Performing Arts. Although his name is at the top of the bill, he’ll have plenty of support in the form of six dancers, three backing vocalists and an 11-piece band. Plus, he won’t be the only Jackson in the house, but will be joined by three of his children – Jeremy on guitar and Autumn and Jermaine Jr. on vocals.

Organizers of the event are trumpeting the night’s set list, saying Jackson will be dipping into his brother’s legacy as well as the Jackson 5 songbook with numbers such as “”Beat It,” “A-B-C,” “Man In The Mirror” and “I’ll Be There.” Conducted by musical director Rex Salas, the band “will be wrapped in a multimedia presentation to include cherished Jackson family photos and videos.”

In other words, there will be plenty of show biz sizzle Oct. 2. For more information, click here for Jermaine Jackson’s website.
