The Jacksons Take Vegas

Michael Jackson is expected to make his comeback with a string of gigs across America estimated to earn him $500 million. Aides of the troubled singer are in the final stages of negotiating a deal which will see him joined on stage by all the other members of the Jackson Five.

The group - which last regularly performed together 23 years ago - is lined up to play 250 concerts in Las Vegas over the three years from next year, when Jackson will be 50. Further concerts around the U.S. and the world are planned.

There are also wide-ranging plans to build a Michael Jackson theme park, casino, hotel and stadium in the Nevada city. The deal, which is also expected to earn millions in merchandising and product endorsements, will immediately clear debts - estimated at $350 million the singer is reported to have accrued.
