Report: Jackson brothers may perform at O2

Four of Michael Jackson's brothers are in talks with AEG Live to perform together at London's O2 arena, sources told The Los Angeles Times.

The O2 is the venue where Michael's comeback concerts were to have taken place, starting last week. The iconic pop star had been rehearsing for a planned 50-date solo residency there when he died June 25. The cause of his death is under investigation.

Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Jackie Jackson, the surviving members of Michael's early group, the Jackson 5, are said to be in negotiations with AEG Live to take over some of the dates their late brother was scheduled to perform.

The Times quoted a spokesman for AEG as saying a deal with the Jacksons had not been signed and a spokesman for the Jackson family didn't immediately respond to the newspaper's request for a comment on its story.
