Since their brother Michael passed away in June 2009, there has been persistent talk of a full-scale Jacksons tour, with the surviving Jackson brothers on board performing their collective hits and the hits of brother Jermaine.

Today the iconic sibling group -- Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson -- announced a full-scale national tour, with a Houston date July 14 at Bayou Music Center, formerly Verizon Wireless Theater.

Armed with their bedrock Jackson 5 hits, Jacksons work, and Jermaine Jackson's hit solo cuts, the group's "Unity Tour" marks their first tour in nearly three decades. That last tour in support of 1984's Victory album was a highly successful outing, with the group playing in front of more than 2.5 million screaming fans.

The Victory tour and the Jacksons stopped at the Astrodome for two days on November 9 and 10, 1984. The group's entire Dallas set from that tour is here on YouTube.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 6, at the usual outlets: livenation.com, "most" Houston-area Randall's stores, 1-866-4HOUTIX (446-8849) and the Bayou Music Center Box Office.

Queen tours without Freddie Mercury and many other groups perform without their original lead singers.It's OK for Cirque de soleil and Thriller Live to make money off MJ's music ,but it's wrong for the group that he started with to tour and sing MJ/J5 songs? Huh? Preposterous!They've sold over 150 million records! They were a supergroup before Thriller! Can't wait to see the show!

There's no reunion without Michael. Period!

And they should stop using Michael's kids for making money!

Well, they are going to do it sooner or later.  They are talented and we all screamed for them when they were kids, but Michael's talent was so enormous, it made you forget the rest of them. Michael was the ONLY reason to see the Victory Tour in 84.

But Randy definitely should be included-to make it right-he's definitely their brother and is an official part of that group! They should ALL be together.

Oh yeah since the first moment Michael Jackson (the only who counts) is not here they are thinking to return on stage. Of course they will want to involve Michael's children to make more money....there is NO limit to their lack of SHAME

ABSOLUTELY! That family has not only confirmed everything Michael said about them, but why he stayed away from them. His Will spoke volumes! Sadly his mother whom he trusted has been in the fray and betrayed his trust as well! The Jacksons may be the most famous entertainment family, but they are also the lowest, greediest, and most disgusting! Fact is they would have NEVER gotten out of Gary, IN without Michael and their shamelessly using his death and his kids to make money just prove they know it! Hope this damn tour fails miserably as every other scheme they've tried to make money with since Michael's death!

Disgusting exploitation of Michael's name; the Estate needs to step in to make sure they don't use Michael's songs.  I've heard Jermaine squawk to "Heal the World".  He should be ashamed of himself.   Gonna bring MJ's kids on tour with you?  How else do you hope to sell tickets.  I just saw Immortal for big bucks but I wouldn't pay one thin dime to support this "tour".

The brothers were after Michael for many years to "reunite" for another tour; Michael always turned them down; so why didn't they tour without him THEN?    Because without Michael's talent, drive and otherwordly talent, there is no act, as they will soon find out.

This is a joke right? "Hell yea im on board thats for sure". Your not actually supporting those pathetic greedy people seeking to profit off the death of a family member?

The Jacksons are DESPICABLE once again using their brother's death to make a profit. They didn't have enough talent back then to make it on their own..what makes them think they do now! They are the lowest of the low!! If they had been included in Michael's Will I bet none of these scams to make money off his death would be happening! Hope this travesty of a concert is a HUGE FLOP!! I'm sure it will be unless they once again use Michael's kids appearing to sell tickets!!

i dont get it, what makes you think they are taking advantage of Michael? Each member of the Jacksons worked hard to achieve their status that they have today. C'mon stop judging people without even knowing them lol
