Q-Tip Plans Michael Jackson Birthday Celebration

  /  07.28.2009


The King of Pop may have passed on, but that doesn’t mean his fans, celebrities included, aren’t celebrating his legacy.

Rapper-turned-DJ Q-Tip will throw a soiree to honor what would have been Michael Jackson’s 51st birthday. The hip-hop icon chose New York City’s NOKIA Theater to house the evening’s festivities, which will be held on August 29, the day Jackson was born. Producer-DJ Mark Ronson and DJ Spinna will join Q-Tip in playing never-before-heard remixes of Michael Jackson’s hits. Rare video footage of the late legend from the Motown and Sony vaults will also be shown.

“Michael Jackson was a huge influence on my music and was an inspiration to me and so many others,” Q-Tip reveals. “I want to bring people together to celebrate the man, his music, and his legacy that will undoubtedly live on forever!”

Tickets for “Q-Tip Presents: Long Live the King! A Birthday Celebration for Michael Jackson” are available for purchase beginning Friday, July 31, at Ticketmaster.com.
