Jackson's concert director hatches plan for tribute

Posted on

Kenny Ortega, the concert director behind Jackson’s comeback tour, hopes to launch a tribute to the late pop star in place of the shows Jackson was supposed to headline this summer in London, according to the L.A. Times. Ortega told reporters that he was envisioning a show that would make use of the costumes and choreography intended for Jackson’s “This Is It” tour. Though there are no official plans at this point, Ortega is apparently also considering a collaboration in the style of Jackson’s 1985 “We Are the World” charity tune. “Maybe part of what we were planning to do in London and beyond — maybewe can share some of these ideas in a different capacity,” Ortega told the Times.
