Michael Jackson London, May 31 (IANS) American R&B star Akon says that pop legend Michael Jackson won’t be singing live during his comeback concerts. The news has disappointed his fans who splurged on tickets to attend his shows.
Akon, who had earlier collaborated with Jackson, says he won’t be showing off his vocals during his “This Is It” revival tour and will instead rely on a pre-recorded track, reports contactmusic.com.

“Michael singing I’m not so sure about. He will perform but not sing,” he said.

Akon, however, maintained audiences at the British capital’s O2 Arena will still be thrilled by a spectacular show Jackson is planning.

“It’s going to be amazing, I can definitely tell you that. I’m going to have front row tickets. I will have the best tickets in the house and will be so close to the stage you will think that I am on it,” he said.

Jackson is scheduled to kick off the tour in July.
