Jackson 5 will reunite, says Jermaine

The hit 1970s pop band The Jackson 5 will reunite and tour next year, with famous siblings Michael and Janet on board, their brother Jermaine Jackson says.

Jackson said they had already begun working on the music and logistics for the tour.

“This has been a long time coming for the Jackson family to get back together,” said Jackson, speaking in Sydney at the launch of a new Australian music channel.

“It is going to be more like a family affair. Janet’s going to open and, of course, the original Jackson 5 ... Michael, Randy and the whole family ... we’re in the studio, we’re planning on being out there next year.”

The Jackson 5, popular in the 1970s with hits such as 'I Want You Back' and 'I’ll Be There', launched the career of pop idol Michael Jackson.

Jermaine also had a successful solo career, with numerous R&B hits in the 1970s and 80s and a Grammy nomination.
