The Jacksons will take fans back to the days when they sang and danced to favorites such as ABC, I’ll Be There, Can You Feel It, and Blame It On the Boogie to give the audience an evening to remember.
The Jacksons, who were originally known as the Jackson 5, recently celebrated 50 years as one of the most successful groups in music history. The group found international success at Motown in 1969 where their first single “I Want You Back” reached No. #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Jackson 5 made music history when 4 debut singles all reached No.#1 and sold in excess of 200 million records.
In 1976, the group left Motown for Epic Records and changed their name to The Jacksons. When the Jackson brothers reunited for The Victory Tour in 1984, it became the highest grossing concert series on stage in the United States. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1977 and in 1980 the group was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Royal Family of Music – the Jacksons – are featured prominently throughout the property beginning with an impressive 37-foot-tall guitar marquee that’s modeled after Joseph Jackson’s famous guitar that changed the world and was the start of the Jackson 5. Fans can view over 30 pieces of Jackson memorabilia include Joe Jackson’s famous guitar that changed the world and started the Jackson 5; outfits worn on stage by the Jacksons; Michael’s famous sparkly glove; and THE red leather jacket from the Beat It video.
