Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary concert
The King of Pop is celebrating his 30th anniversary as a solo artist with a regal concert.

According the Associated Press, Michael's publicist announced Monday that the superstar will be feted at an all-star concert at Madison Square Garden in New York on Sept. 7. Among the celebrities slated to appear are Jill Scott, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, 'N Sync, Marc Anthony and Shaggy.

The concert will also mark a reunion between Jackson and his brothers, the first time all of them have performed together since the 1980s.

''I am very excited to celebrate my 30th anniversary as a solo artist with such a distinguished array of talent, friends and fans," said Michael in a prepared statement. "I look forward to performing live and reuniting with my brothers on this special night.''

As many of US fans know, Michael hasn't performed at a concert in the United States since his ''Bad'' concert tour in the late 1980s.

Michael is expected to sing songs from the new album, now scheduled for a fall release. The show is also being taped for broadcast on television.
