Quincy Jones to Celebrate Three Classic Michael Jackson Albums at O2 Arena
Jones will perform "Off The Wall," "Thriller" and "Bad" with a live symphony orchestra on June 23.
Quincy Jones will celebrate his work on three of Michael Jackson's most iconic albums with a blow-out symphonic concert at London's O2 Arena on June 23. The one-off show will find Jones conducting the orchestra in performances of 1979's Off the Wall, 1982's Thriller and 1987's Bad back-to-back, with a number of special guests slated to join him, according to a statement from the venue.
Jones is slated to host and introduce the evening, which will also feature never-before-seen video of the making of each album in between the live performances of the records that have sold more than 150 million copies around the world. General admission tickets for the show go on sale on Feb. 15 at 9 a.m. The gig will take place just two days before the 10th anniversary of Jackson's 2009 death, at the venue where the King of Pop was slated to perform his 50-date comeback residency.
