The Jacksons' Unity Tour coming to Australia in 2013

One of the world's most famous music families - known as The Jacksons rather than The Jackson 5 since the 1980s - are getting back on stage and in the tour bus. 

The Jacksons, now down a member with their infamous brother Michael sadly going to an early grave, will be in Australia next March for a five-stop tour, hitting up PerthMelbourneWollongongSydney and Brisbane.

The remaining brothers of The Jackson 5 include Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon (Randy Jackson is not included in any tour reports), with Jackie Jackson saying "This is a dream coming true...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." Aww, guys. 

On top of The Jackson 5 hits all y'all love like 'ABC', 'I Want You Back' and 'I'll Be There', the brothers are reportedly going to play some of Michael's songs like 'Rock With You', 'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough', 'Wanna Be Startin' Something' and 'Gone Too Soon', letting the brothers and fans mourn the loss and love the legacy of their most famous sibling, The King of Pop. 

As Marlon says, "of course we are going to pay homage to our can feel his presence on that stage and I find myself remembering how we used to dance together back when we were kids." 

I'm tearing up.

Get your tickets from Monday 17 December.
