‘I miss him every moment of the day’
It’s more than five years since Michael Jackson died, but the music he and his brothers made lives on in the form of a stage show spectacular.
The late, great king of pop gave his tick of approval for the celebration to be created – and now after a six year stellar run in London’s West End it’s happening here in Australia.
Entertainment editor Richard Wilkins spoke to original member of the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons, Tito Jackson, about Thriller LIVE and his brother’s legacy.
“I love my brother, I miss him every moment of the day, if there was anything I could do to have him back I would but life is life if I could bring him back I would, but life is life.
“He had so much more to give the world, I just wish he was here to give it,” he said.
On the musical, Tito said he is proud to have created music with “longevity that lives on into people’s lives, [enjoying us] doing what we love, and that’s entertaining.”
“This is as close as you’re going to get to see what the original Jackson 5 were like with Michael Jackson,” he said.
