The Jacksons reunite for Unity Tour

This summer, The JacksonsJermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Tito — will honor their late brother Michael Jackson by reuniting for a once-in-a-lifetime tour.

The brothers have announced dates for their upcoming Unity Tour, their first such trip in almost 30 years.

The North American tour will mark the first time the brothers have performed together since their 1984 Victory tour, and comes three years after Michael’s death in 2009.

"This is a dream coming true," said Jackie Jackson. "I can't believe this is finally happening. There's nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world-- and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us."

Honoring Michael's memory and bringing the fans all the timeless hits they know and love is also paramount for Jermaine Jackson. "I am so happy and excited to perform again onstage with my brothers," he said. "I can't wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family's legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity, and most of all, integrity."

The 27-city tour kicks off June 18 in Louisville, KY, and wraps July 29 in Snoqualmie, WA.

Tickets go on sale in select cities on Friday, April 6. For more details, visit the band’s website here.
