Jermaine Confirms That Jackson 5 Will Reunite In 2009

Oct 29th, 2008 // 5 Comments

Jermaine Jackson told reporters in Sydney that the Jackson 5 will be reuniting next year. “It is going to be more like a family affair, Janet’s going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5 … Michael, Randy and the whole family.” Given recent tales of the siblings’ travails, from working odd jobs to troubled world tours, this might be a good thing for all concerned, including Michael, about whom no mere link can suffice to explain. Frankly, we’d like this to include every member of the family, not least because we want to hear the song embedded above, as well as this one, which isn’t embeddable. Not to mention that Epic/Legacy’s new reissues of the Jacksons’ Destiny (1978) and Triumph (1980) remind us yet again that Michael’s brothers helped him make some of his finest music.

  1. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    Isn’t Jermaine saying stuff like this at least once a year? Not that I wouldn’t be first in line to buy tickets.

    Oh and by every family member, I assume that you also mean to include 3T, Tito’s kids?

    Every member of the immediate family, obv. And I should have thrown in my skepticism that this will even occur, frankly.

  3. How do I say this ... THROWDINI!

    @Michaelangelo Matos: Damn, I was really hoping to attend my first 3T concert.

    @Lucas Jensen: I bet La Toya’s available if anyone calls.

    @Michaelangelo Matos: Well, and what I don’t understand is that Randy was not an original Jackson 5, so really we’re getting the Jackson 5 + Randy or the Jacksons + Jermaine. It’s all so confusing. Is Rebe gonna be there? So many questions…
