AceShowbiz - The bosses of the Michael Jackson estate have teamed up with Sony Music executives to stage a Las Vegas festival to honour the King of Pop's 60th birthday.
The Michael Jackson Diamond Birthday Celebration will feature a performance of Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil and appearances from the late pop icon's kids Paris and Prince and his brothers Jackie, Marlon and Tito.
The event, hosted by TV and radio personality Sway Calloway, will be held at the Daylight Beach Club at the end of this month.
