NEW BRUNSWICK—State Theatre will present The Jacksons Unity Tour 2013 on Thursday, July 25 at 8 p.m. The Jacksons—Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon— will perform a mix of Jackson 5 hits as well as Michael Jackson hits. Tickets range from $35-95.
When siblings Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, and Tito Jackson rose to fame with their late brother Michael in the 1970s, they instantly became an unstoppable global sensation. The Jacksons’ unique brand of soulful pop-funk, their lengthy catalogue of hits, and their impeccable live performances have made them one of the most beloved musical acts of all time.
Classic #1 hits such as “ABC,” “I Found That Girl,” “I Want You Back,” and “I’ll Be There,” catapulted the group to superstardom. With nine #1 hits and 14 Top 10 hits, the group has certainly left its mark on the charts. The Jackson 5 become the first group ever to have their first four singles hit #1 on the Billboard Charts, plus “I’ll Be There” remains the best-selling single in Motown history.
The Jacksons were formally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and were the youngest group ever to receive that honor. The Jacksons last toured together, in support of their album Victory, in 1984. The Jacksons’ Victory tour was the first of its kind and drew over 2.5 million people to stadiums across America to see their performances. Now, for the first time in nearly three decades, the surviving members of the group are back on stage together.
