EUR Exclusive: The Jacksons Vegas Show Cancelled\Шоу Джексонов в Вегасе отменено

Phoenix is a former public relations and spokesperson for the Jackson family. He also managed Tito Jackson’s blues career.


* EURweb has just learned that The Jacksons‘ 40-date show at the Planet Hollywood’s PH showroom under the ‘Rocktellz & Cocktails’ format in Las Vegas, NV has been cancelled. The group’s final show was on Sunday, April 6, according to the official publicist.

This, eight days short of the originally planned end date.

A former Jacksons PR rep, spokesperson and former friend by the name of Phoenix is the bearer of this news. You may remember Phoenix: he authored the book, “Touched by the Jacksons” and later, the press release that told us the brothers’ Unity Tour would never come to pass.

Not ringing a bell yet?

Well how’s this? He’s the guy the Jackson brothers threatened for writing that press release.

Yes, him.

Well he’s back with an inside scoop on what he tells EURweb head honcho, Lee Bailey, is the real deal on why The Jacksons Las Vegas show was cancelled, and, well lets just say this, its a different story than the “Official Statement” the show creator sent us.

“I just got a call from one of my sources in Las Vegas, directly from the Planet Hollywood Casino,” Phoenix tells Bailey. “…and I was informed that the Jackson brothers show – series of shows that they had booked there was cancelled…due to poor ticket sales and the actual production of the show was not up to par,” he continues.

“The actual brothers themselves, Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Jermaine could not deliver what they used to deliver back in the 70s and 80s when they were in their prime.”

In all fairness, few performers pushing 60 and up, can.

When Lee asks Phoenix if this is his opinion or if it is coming from Planet Hollywood he pretty much said it was “coming from things that I feel, but I heard throughout the conversation when I was speaking with my sources regarding that the Jacksons could not deliver…and the general public just wasn’t buying it.”

Phoenix says that during some of the nights of performance the house was either half or sometimes one-quarter full.

“The buyers knew they were losing money so they could no longer extend that contract on the original agreement that was given to The Jacksons.”

Phoenix claims he predicted this would happen and that the brothers were backed up against the wall to do these shows “because they were no longer riding the gravy train that Michael [Jackson] was providing for them when they were not working as a group or out there in the public.”

Referencing Michael as “the only talented Jackson,” Phoenix is questioned on his thoughts about Janet Jackson‘s abilities.

“As for Janet’s career, she’s what you call a ‘Flip side’ of Michael. Which is a copycat of Michael…But Janet has her own talent, I won’t say she’s not talented, but she will never be what Michael was. Not by a long shot.”

Phoenix goes on to tell Bailey that the Jackson brothers were “whipped into what they did” and equates their upbringing in the music business to a form of “slavery.”

“I don’t mean to speak very vulgar and sound negative, its just that they were slaves when Joe Jackson had them when they were growing up. And they were forced and whipped into that when they did not truly have that in their blood,” Phoenix continues emphatically.

Meanwhile, when we contacted the PR people for the show and asked if it was true that The Jacksons show had been cancelled due to poor ticket sales, they said it is true that the show was cancelled but that it was a “mutual decision” between The Jacksons and the show creators based on the fact that The Jacksons were sharing room space with the Meatloaf show. When Meatloaf left, another group was supposed to take his place. That group did not come on board leaving The Jacksons with little alternative but to cancel the remaining shows.

The Jacksons alternated times with Meat Loaf, who performed at 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Feb. 13 to April 8. The Jacksons performances were set for 9:30 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays through April 27; with single performance days on Tuesdays for Meat Loaf and Sundays for The Jacksons.

An official statement from Adam Steck, the creator and producer of RockTellz & CockTails reads,

“The Jacksons will be ending their run in RockTellz and CockTails at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino a bit earlier than expected,” said Steck, who is also CEO of SPI Entertainment. “The act they thought would share the room with them post-Meat Loaf unfortunately couldn’t make the dates work.”

So yes, on the one hand, some of what Phoenix says is true. Obviously, The Jackson’s could not fill the PH showroom at Planet Hollywood. But then again, looking at the official statement,

They never expected to.

Lake County Deals Properties Near Jackson Gary Home


In Photo: Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson gives the keys to the city to Jackson brothers, from left, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon as the famous brothers visited their boyhood home in 2012. Lake County commissioners on Wednesday voted to give nine abandoned properties near the Jackson home to the city for renovation and eventual sale.

CROWN POINT | Lake County officials are taking the first step in what could be a chance for a new homeowner to live near where The Jackson 5 grew up.

The Lake County Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday to give the city of Gary nine abandoned properties on the city’s Jackson Street.

Lake County Attorney John Dull said the properties are close to The Jackson 5 boyhood home near 23rd Avenue and Jackson Street.

Gary has made several attempts to capitalize on the life and legacy of Michael Jackson and his family, who grew up there before moving on to fame and fortune in California.

Dull said the abandoned homes and lots were acquired by the county over the years, after the original owners failed to pay their property taxes.

He said the city will have an outside group rehabilitate the houses for eventual resale to new owners.

Gary officials would not comment specifically about the property transfer, but they plan to make an announcement in May about a project.

“I can say that this is a good thing,” Gary Communications Director Chelsea Whittington said.

Dull said as part of the transfer, the properties will pass through a nonprofit organization called the Lake Redevelopment Corp. Tramel Raggs is president of the corporation. Raggs is the commissioners’ special assistant and son of Gary City Clerk Suzette Raggs.

Commissioner Mike Repay, D-Hammond, the corporation’s vice president, said he helped form it in 2010 as a necessary instrument under state law to move tax delinquent properties from government to private ownership.

Repay said the corporation became involved in the Jackson Street properties to speed their transfer to Gary before a deadline to apply for a federal house rehabilitation grant.

Marlon, Tito, Jackie, Jermaine and Michael Jackson, who became known to the world as The Jackson 5, were playing together as early as 1965 at high school talent shows in Gary, as were many young bands influenced by Detroit’s Motown hits.

The Jacksons’ performances eventually got the attention of record labels and Detroit itself. Michael Jackson went on to win 13 Grammy awards and was credited with 750 million record sales worldwide before his death in 2009.

There was a proposal in 2010 to create a $300 million museum and arts center complex in Gary around the King of Pop’s legacy.

The Jacksons bring classic hits to Hong Kong / Джексоны привозят незабвенные хиты в Гонг Конг

by Robin Lynam

The Jacksons, I’m told before speaking over the phone to the eldest brother, Jackie, from his home in Los Angeles, don’t talk about “family matters” in interviews.

Considering that they have made themselves the subject of a self-produced TV reality show, this reticence seems perverse. But now that they are back on the road as a touring band, and have a new album in the works, a desire to refocus public attention on their music is understandable.

The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty aired after Michael Jackson’s death. It was filmed without the participation of the youngest brother, Randy Jackson, who also chose not to take part in the Unity Tour which Jackie, Marlon, Tito and Jermaine undertook in 2012.

Rifts and reconciliations between the members of the Jackson family – which includes sisters Rebbie, La Toya and Janet – have provided gossip column fodder on and off since 1975, when all the brothers bar Jermaine left Motown, the label which released their hits as the Jackson 5, for a better-paying contract with Epic.

The real tragedy of Michael’s death in 2009 aside, the history of black America’s best-known showbusiness family is something of a soap opera – but one with an intermittently great soundtrack.

The four brothers now touring as The Jacksons will perform many of the highlights from a repertoire that is less dependent on the group’s most famous member than many might imagine – on November 1 at the annual Foreign Correspondents Club Charity Ball at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Although the Unity Tour officially finished in 2013, according to Jackie Jackson the brothers are undertaking occasional additional dates. “It’s pretty much an extension of the tour,” he says. “We hadn’t toured in quite a while and we’re looking forward to coming.”

The original Unity Tour included shows in Japan, Malaysia and Singapore, but not Hong Kong. This performance will come after a show in Jakarta on October 26.

The set list will be similar – a nostalgic canter through a long list of hits dating back to the days when Jackie, Michael, Marlon, Tito and Jermaine collectively became the first recording artists to reach No 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 with four consecutive singles.

The brothers began performing together in 1964 with five-year-old Michael playing percussion. Within a couple of years, he had become the group’s principal lead vocalist, but all the brothers sang, and their harmonies were the foundation for the group’s distinctive sound.

After the early run of Motown pop hits ran out, The Jacksons, as they became known after leaving the label, reinvented themselves as a funk outfit, and scored notable hits for the Epic label with Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground), co-written by Michael and Randy who had temporarily replaced Jermaine in the group, and Can You Feel It?, co-written by Michael and Jackie.

After the huge success of Michael’s 1982 album, Thriller, however, his solo career eclipsed the group. Their 1984 album, Victory, for which Jermaine rejoined and which accordingly featured all six brothers, was another hit, but after the supporting tour Michael and Marlon both left the family firm, and the glory days were over.

The brothers reunited in 2001 for two Madison Square Garden shows, but Michael’s death in 2009 put to rest any hopes of another full reunion. However, four of the surviving brothers still had something to prove, and reviews for their recent concerts suggest that even without the physical presence of their far more famous brother, The Jacksons remain a potent live act – and after 50 years in the business, certainly a well-rehearsed one.

“It comes quite easy because we’ve been doing it for so long,” says Jackie. “The hardest part is choosing the songs. Getting all of them into a two-hour show is really quite difficult, so we try to pick the songs we think people would really want to hear, but we change it up here and there. Jermaine might sing some of his solo hits and we’ll do some Michael songs as well. It’s such a workout on stage. It’s like going to the gym.”
