Janet’s brother, Jermaine Jackson, has said in an interview with Australian Associated Press that the entire Jackson 5 will reunite next year for a new album and a tour. He has further stated that Janet will be the opening act – something that Janet has spoken about in previous interviews.
“It is just the timing, so what we’ve been doing is working on the music and all the logistics. 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. … We’re in the studio, we’re planning on being out there next year,” Jermaine said.
It is not yet known whether the show will actually go ahead as it has been spoken about for several months or what impact it will have on Janet’s possible plans to take her Rock Witchu Tour across the globe.
