Michael Jackson’s Brothers At The Apollo Theater, 2012

The Jacksons Unity Tour Summer 2012 – United States & Canada – Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Jermaine Jackson & Marlon Jackson.:

First let me start off by apologizing for the poor quality of the photos below. The Apollo theater has a strict policy on “no photography” meaning no whipping out of large professional SLR cameras like my Canon. So I had to settle for the poor resolution of my camera phone. Nevertheless, it got some job done. Camera or not, I wouldn’t miss this for the world. I would rather be no place else!

So let’s talk about these dynamite brothers, The Jacksons 5 which since the demise of the great iconic Michael, their brother, now call themselves “The Jacksons.” They brought the sold out house down! This would mark their first tour together in years, returning to their birthplace on stage, The Apollo Theater, since their brother’s passing.

The dance moves of Marlon (and all the others for that matter) brought to mind a lot of Michael’s iconic moves. He even went on to tease the crowd to sing back a couple of Michael’s iconic melodies in honor of his late brother. After a couple of hot dance moves and bringing the crowd to their feet to jam to some old classics, they brought tears to a lot of people’s eyes, including myself, when they sang tribute songs to Michael culminating with “when we see you again” while playing in the background a video montage of home pictures of the entire family ending it on Michael. Then once again it was on to the dance numbers. With the way there were moving, it was hard to believe they are all well over mid 50s! So, all you poptarts out there, the originals are back. Move over!

I couldn't resist touching the iconic "good luck" wood at the Apollo!



Just outside the theater, couldn't resist the Marquee either. It was a FANTASTIC show!
