David Gest—a concert promoter and longtime Jackson family friend perhaps best known as the short-term spouse of Liza Minnelli—is spearheading a tribute to the late King of Pop entitled “A Jackson Named Michael: Remembering a Legend.”

Reuters reports that Gest has recruited Michael’s brother Tito and sister Rebbie, singer Deneice Williams, and others to sing songs and tell stories from the late icon’s life, and participate in a question-and-answer session with audience members at a series of dates throughout Europe and the U.K.

“The majority of the show will be reminiscences and stories about Michael that the public has never heard,” he said in a statement.

The tour is scheduled to kick off in the U.K. in March of 2012; a controversial one-night tribute to Michael is still scheduled for this Oct. 8 in Cardiff, Wales.
