With the controversy surrounding abuse allegations against Michael Jackson at its highest for several years now, Quincy Jones has announced a concert at London’s O2 Arena exploring his work with the late king of pop.

Jones will host a night on 23 Jun, two days before the tenth anniversary of Jackson’s death, where three of the albums he produced with the star – ‘Off The Wall’, ‘Thriller’ and ‘Bad’ – will be performed by an orchestra.

In between the performance of each album, previously unseen footage of the recording of each LP will be screened for the audience. The night will also begin with an introduction from Jones, who will also conduct the orchestra, along with Jules Buckley. Various unnamed special guests are also promised to appear on stage.

The event follows last year’s ‘Quincy Jones – A Life In Song’ show. Tickets for this latest event exploring Jones’s back catalogue are set to go on sale this Friday.
