Michael [Jackson] Forever Tribute Concert to be Streamed Live on Facebook

Michael Forever

As the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of pop superstar Michael Jackson continues to transfix people, there's something coming on the calendar that will draw their interest as well: the Michael Forever Tribute concert scheduled for Oct. 8, 6 p.m. in Cardiff, Wales.

It's certainly cheaper than making the trek to Cardiff. Tickets there can run as high as $196. Instead, fans who wish to view it live on Facebook can pay 40 Facebook Credits, or $3.99, prior to October 8, or 50 Facebook Credits, or $4.99, on the day of the event. PayPal is also being accepted. Just remember that 6 p.m. in Cardiff works out to 1 p.m. EDT, if you're in the U.S. (and you can work out other time zones, we're sure).
The Michael Forever Tribute is set to feature performances by Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Leona Lewis, Ne-Yo, Craig David, Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke, Alien Ant Farm and Motown legend Smokey Robinson. Beyonce will also appear, but not live. Instead, she will appear in a pre-recorded video set, dubbed a "special contribution on video."
While Facebook is being used to foster the concert, it turns out there is also a Facebook group against the Michael Forever Tribute. That group is the Fans against Michael Forever Tribute group. They say their mission is :
This page is for Michael Jackson fans who disagree with the Michael Forever Tribute. The admin on the tribute page are rude and unprofessional, In our Opinion they have no interest in Michael's legacy and only want to work with certain family members to cash in.
Meanwhile, the Michael Forever Tribute page says:
Katherine Jackson is delighted to announce Michael Forever, the ultimate tribute concert to the King of Pop
A spectacular tribute concert on Saturday 8th October 2011 to be held at Millennium Stadium, Cardiff

Either way, Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx ("Ray," Best Actor, 2004) will host the event. It is true that there has been some rumbling from the Jackson clan, reportedly including Janet, Jermaine and Randy, as well as some fans about the timing of the show, which is taking place, as we mentioned, right in the middle of the manslaughter trial of Jackson's physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.
