There's been a lot of excitement over Jermaine Jackson's suggestion to 6Music that there might be a new Jacksons tour. DigitalSpy went with this headline:
Really? What did he say?
"It will probably start [in America] first, but it will be sometime in 2008. That’s our plan.”
So, that would be more "Jermaine suggests possible Jacksons reunion, maybe", surely?
It's not clear who the tour will actually be touching: those who bought the records are now grown up and have children of their own, so they'll be reluctant to turn up for Michael; there would certainly be that hardcore of Jackson fans in attendance - at last, a way of Michael to shake 'em down for some cash after constantly having to turn up for PAs outside courtrooms for free. But do the rest of the boys really want to turn up to effectively stand in the shadows of the "I believe you didn't do it" Jacko show? Is the money they'd want going to be covered by the hardcore audience?
We wouldn't want to invest on that hunch.
