Monster will roll out the red carpet for the Jackson family for its annual concert and awards program at CES 2016 in January.
“Heal the World, A Tribute to Michael Jackson” will be held at Planet Hollywood in the Axis Theater Powered by Monster on Thursday, Jan. 7, at 7:30 p.m. The concert will feature “some of the biggest talents in music today, including several of the Jacksons themselves,” said Monster in a statement.
Specific names will be released Jan. 1. Performers will be backed by a 30-piece orchestra arranged and conducted by Vassal Benford.
Those interested in attending should email [email protected] by Dec. 31.
Said Monster founder Noel Lee: “Our CES concert series has always been about sharing Monster’s heart and soul, our love for great music and for an authentic live music experience. Over the years, it’s been our great honor and privilege to present so many iconic artists to CES attendees. This year’s tribute to Michael Jackson is truly fitting. His song ‘Heal the World’ truly speaks to the needs of today’s times and Monster feels that it’s part of our obligation as corporate citizens to bring social consciousness to CES to help fight terror, violence, and to clean up the environment for future generations.”
