    With the "Michael Forever" tribute show in the rear view, since it took place in Cardiff, Wales on Oct. 8, the late Michael Jackson's family is planning two more tribute shows for the late King of Pop. The shows will help raise funds for the survivors of Japan's earthquake and tsunami disasters. So MJ will be celebrated while local Japanese people are helped with these two Tokyo-based shows!

    Jackson's mother Katherine said, "If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes."

    Several members of the late star's family will perform at The Michael Jackson Tribute Live concerts in Tokyo to raise funds for Japan's ASHINAGA charity, which helps child survivors of the tragedy.

    Michael's little sister Janet Jackson said, "This concert can help children. I'm glad I can put smile on their faces again," while her brother Marlon explained, "Music can bring us together. Children can't live without guidance. We want to point our kids to right direction. I'm pleased music can help other people."

    The shows will take place on Dec. 13 and 14, with tickets going on sale today.

    Are you pro or anti these Michael Jackson tribute shows?
