Jermaine Jackson of the legendary Jackson 5 revealed plans Monday to build an entertainment complex in Armenia and said he hoped that his brother Michael Jackson would join in a reunion concert marking its opening.
Jackson, a singer and bass guitar player who has pursued a solo career, is on a 12-day visit to this impoverished landlocked Caucasus Mountain nation. He said the complex could include a hotel, a restaurant as well as a television company.
Pop sensation The Jackson 5 - brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael – was formed by their father Joe in the 1960s in Gary, Indiana. Michael Jackson, the youngest in the band, helped propel the group to its peak of popularity in 1972 during a tour in Britain. The Jacksons' last album was released in 1989.
