The remaining members of the Jackson 5—Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon Jackson—are making a stop in Queens on their 50th-anniversary tour. The concert will take place Aug. 30, one day after what would have been Michael Jackson’s 57th birthday.
The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College will host the concert in the Colden Auditorium on Reeves Avenue in Flushing. Tickets ranging from $35 to $79 are on sale now for the 7 p.m. concert and tribute video that chronicles the evolution of the Motown quintet and the 21 albums they released between 1969 and 1984.
The 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Famers plan to perform many of the hits they and their brother Michael Jackson made famous, such as “ABC,” “I Want You Back,” “I’ll Be There” and “Rockin’ Robin.”
The Jacksons’ concert will be the Kupferberg Center’s first of the 2015-2016 season. In partnership with the New York Community Bank, the season includes other cultural events, pop concerts and family programs on and off the Queens College campus.
