The Jacksons are preparing for a stint on the Las Vegas strip this February.
Britney Spears isn’t the only musical act in town vying for your money these days. The Jacksons were recently tapped by Planet Hollywood to head up the so-called “RockTellz and CockTails” concert series at the PH Showroom. According to reports, the group will kick things off at the hotel and casino on February 20.
However, the Jacksons — namely Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon — will reportedly share the Las Vegas venue with Meat Loaf. The singer previously played a handful of shows last fall, though he’s expected to return next month. The “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” singer will rotate back and forth with the siblings.
The Los Angeles Times describes to “RockTellz and CockTails” as “high-energy, one-of-a-kind live show” that mixes in personal stories and anecdotes from the acts. Although the Jacksons probably have more than a few stories to tell, chances are they’ll omit the controversy for the concert series.
The group will perform a total of 40 shows between February and April. Tickets range from $54 to $129, though serious fans can splurge on a special meet and greet package. Expect to part with an additional $400 if you want to spend some quality time with the Jacksons.
“We’re honored to welcome The Jacksons, American music royalty and one of the most trendsetting and captivating artists of all time, to the ‘Rocktellz & Cocktails’ stage,” SPI Entertainment CEO Adam Steck said in a recent statement.
He added, “Audiences are going to love hearing their unbelievable stories and, of course, the songs that have helped them become so treasured and adored worldwide.”
Las Vegas resident and band member Jackie Jackson put together his own statement to celebrate the upcoming residency. He explained:
“We are thrilled to be a part of ‘Rocktellz and Cocktails’ at Planet Hollywood. As a Las Vegas resident, I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this amazing series at one of the most iconic entertainment destinations in the world. My brothers and I can’t wait to take the stage and bring our hits — and the stories behind them — to life for the fans.”
The Jacksons aren’t the only acts headed to the “RockTellz and CockTails” stage in Las Vegas later this year. Steck said he is currently talking to REO Speedwagon, Roger Daltrey, and Pat Benatar for possible stints at the PH Showroom.
