You know them, you love them, their hits have saturated radio airwaves for decades, and now, you’ll get a chance to see The Jacksons live in Morganton on September 5.
One of the most recognizable families in the music industry will put on a show to remember, playing classics such as “ABC,” “I Want You Back,” “I’ll Be There,” “Rockin’ Robin” and so many more.
Consisting of original Jackson 5 members Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon Jackson, The Jacksons put on an amazing show that includes all of their mega-hits made famous with their brother, Michael Jackson.
The Jacksons’ energetic show consists of all the famous dance moves and costumes you’ve witnessed throughout the decades as the family has taken stage after stage, entertaining audiences with their hits. Seeing The Jacksons is an opportunity to witness live the re-formation of one of the greatest pop and Motown super groups in the history of music. The Jacksons are inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, have five #1 albums, 18 #1 hits, 17 top 10 albums, and 17 top 40 singles to their name.
“We are so excited to bring The Jacksons to Morganton,” said Assistant City Manager Sonja Marston. “The Jacksons are part of American music history, and we can’t wait for their performance here in September. This is a once in a lifetime chance to see one of the greatest musical performances to ever hit stages across the nation.”
The Jackson 5 became a worldwide sensation in 1969 with the release of their first Motown album, “Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5.” Singles “I Want You Back” and “Who’s Loving You” went on to sell 2 million copies in 6 weeks. The Jackson family made history when the hit single “I Want You Back” rose to #1 on the pop charts, and the Jackson 5 franchise was born.
The Jackson family went on to achieve meteoric success in the music industry, performing as The Jackson 5 from 1969 to 1975. They released numerous albums, made countless television appearances and played concerts to sold-out stadiums everywhere. After 1975, the family continued to perform as The Jacksons when they switched from Motown to Epic Records. Michael Jackson began performing as a solo act, charting numerous hits and garnering fans across the world, and The Jacksons recorded their last album together in 1989.
The Jacksons' live performance in 2019 brings to life decades of musical success that shaped the sound of America for generations. When they bring their show to Morganton, it is a chance to hear living music history as they sing and dance through hits that defined decades.
