Tito Jackson, founder member of the Jackson 5, will pay tribute to his late brother Michael when he embarks on his debut solo U.K. tour, beginning Oct. 6 in Manchester, England.

Calling at seven U.K. cities supporting former Motown labelmate Gladys Knight, Tito and his 14-piece band will perform a string of songs by his brother and The Jackson 5. According to a spokesman, additional members of the Jackson family will be joining Tito on the tour, although it is not yet confirmed which family members would be attending.

Tito Jackson said in a statement: "The U.K. was a very special place to my brother Michael and I'm so excited to be able to pay my respect to his fans there. To be able to do this whilst supporting our dear friend Gladys is a complete blessing."

Marking the final U.K. live outings for Gladys Knight, the 'Midnight Train To Love -- Farewell Tour' kicks off in Manchester on Oct. 6 and includes two shows at London Wembley Arena (Oct. 8-9) before wrapping at Oct. 20 at Aberdeen's AECC arena.
