A tribute being held for Michael Jackson next month at Vienna’s 17th-century Schoenbrunn Palace will be broadcast worldwide, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The event’s promoter, Georg Kindel of World Awards Media GmbH, stated that “Negotiations are ongoing with networks over rights to broadcast what’s being billed as Jackson’s main global tribute, and the pop legend’s brother Jermaine is assembling the lineup of about 10 ‘of the biggest artists of our time’.” U2, Madonna, and Whitney Houston are among the acts rumored to perform at the event. Tickets for the service are set to go on sale Aug. 20.
