Jamie Foxx to Host Michael Jackson Tribute
Rolling Stone reports that comedian, actor and singer Jamie Foxx will be the host of the controversial Michael Jackson Forever tribute concert, which is scheduled for Oct. 8 in Cardiff, Wales. The show was organized by Global Live Events.
The tribute will feature performances from Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson and Christina Aguilera. The show has had more than its share of trouble, with Jackson family members vowing to not attend the event, stating that it will run during Michael Jackson’s doctor’s manslaughter trial.
Tickets have also been discounted because of the show’s low demand, which frustrated plenty of fans that had previously purchased tickets. Fans were also upset to learn that Beyonce, who was recently added to the lineup, would only be participating in the event via satellite.
