Michael Jackson's family are reportedly planning a tribute concert in his memory.

Michael Jackson's family are reportedly planning a tribute concert in his memory.

The late 'Thriller' hitmaker - who died of acute Propofol intoxication at his home in Los Angeles on June 25 in 2009 - will be remembered with a huge event in Los Angeles featuring a number of world famous artists and all proceeds are set to go to charity according to In Touch Weekly.

Michael's family members, sister La Toya, brothers Marlon, Jackie and Tito and mother Katherine are set to announce the details in a global press conference at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Monday.

It is unclear is any of Michael's siblings will perform at the event although it is a possibility after his sister Janet showcased a virtual duet with her deceased brother in London last month.

Janet revealed singing their 1995 duet 'Scream' with Michael makes her feel closer to him, explaining "It's therapeutic, you know and it makes me smile inside. I mean the energy of the song is fierce but makes it makes me smile inside when I hear him, when I hear his voice."
