Jacksons Cancel Dates

*Update* The Jackson brothers won’t be reuniting for their Unity Tour as early as they once planned because the first two scheduled dates of the summer excursion have been canceled, along with a handful of other shows.

“The Jacksons: Unity Tour 2012” was set to begin June 18 in Louisville, Ky., at The Louisville Palace Theatre. The listing on Ticketmaster’s website says the show has been canceled.

Additional gigs that are also listed as canceled are: June 19 at Cincinnati’s PNC Pavilion At Riverben; June 26 at Cleveland’s Jacobs Pavilion At Nautica; July 6 in Raleigh, N.C., at Raleigh Amphitheatre; and July 10 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

Internet and phone orders will be automatically refunded. If you bought your tickets in person, refunds are available at point of purchase.

A PR representative for The Jacksons told Pollstar the tour will now kick off June 20 in Rama, Ontario, at Casino Rama. Dates are booked through July 29 in Snoqualmie, Wash., at the Snoqualmie Casino.

The Jacksons’ management is expected to issue a statement about the canceled dates, which are still listed on the act’s website.

The Unity Tour marks the first time Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito have toured together since 1984’s Victory Tour.
