The Jacksons 50th Anniversary concert plus special guests Kool & The Gang announced for Nocturne 2017.
In celebration of their milestone 50th anniversary, legendary Motown supergroup The Jacksons will make their way to Blenheim Palace’s spectacular Great Court on Sunday June 18th as part of this year’s Nocturne concert series.
Armed with an arsenal of classic hits including I Want You Back, ABC and Blame It On The Boogie to name just a few, and a stage-show honed to near-perfection, The Jacksons are only performing a handful of UK festival dates as part of their world tour in 2017. Their performance at Nocturne will be the only opportunity for fans to catch a headline concert from one of the most enduring pop bands of all time.
Special guests will be R&B kings Kool & The Gang. Having toured with The Jackson 5 in the ’70s, the band’s funk-drenched pop hits, including Get Down On It, Celebration, Ladies Night and Jungle Boogie, helped them define the sound of the era. This rare UK date will feature original members Robert "Kool" Bell, Ronald Bell, George Brown and Dennis Thomas.
