LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson's family has announced a tribute concert for the late singer later this year in Wales, but details on performers remain under wraps.

The pop singer's mother, Katherine and siblings La Toya, Marlon, Jackie and Tito said Monday the show is scheduled for Oct. 8 at Millennium Stadium.

Tickets for "Michael Forever — The Tribute Concert" will go on sale in early August. The show is being coordinated by Global Event Live, which plans to stream the concert online.

Katherine Jackson says she plans to attend to the concert and expects it to be a fitting tribute for her son, who died unexpectedly on June 25, 2009, at age 50.

Jermaine Jackson had planned a tribute concert in Europe after his brother's death, but the show was not held.
