It has NOT been smooth sailing for the folks putting together the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert.
Last month, there was controversy in the Jackson family, because some of MJ's fam felt it was disrespectful to have the concert take place while Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial is still going on.
Then last week, Janet Jackson announced she wouldn't be attending the concert due to the trial.
Now, we're hearing that Beyonce will NOT be performing a live satellite performance at the event, even though concert promoter Global Live Events stated that she would.
Here's what a source had to say about it:
"Beyonce won't be performing a song live via satellite for the tribute concert now."
And if that weren't enough of a bummer, fans who paid full price for tickets will NOT be able to qualify for the new 2-for-1 ticket deals that are now going on sale.
We're sure there will still be some great performances at this event, but we've gotta say it REALLY seems like it wasn't put together very well.
Ah well, what's done is done we suppose…
Will U be attending the MJ Tribute Concert? Are U pissed to hear that Beyonce won't be performing via satellite???
