Legendary Motown supergroup The Jacksons, who are celebrating their milestone 50th anniversary with a world tour in 2017, and US R&B giant Alexander O’Neal are announced today as the next two headliners lined-up to perform at this year’s Greenwich Music Time. They join Little Mix, Cliff Richard and Michael Ball & Alfie Boe on the line-up for the week-long concert series, which takes place at the World Heritage-listed, 5000-capacity Old Royal Naval College from June 30th – July 7th.
Featuring brothers Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon, The Jacksons will bring their spectacular live show, which will include renditions of all the group’s hits as well as their trademark dance moves and outfits, to London on Thursday July 6th. Alexander O’Neal, who came to prominence in the late ‘80s thanks to a string of chart-topping singles including Criticize, If You Were Here Tonight and Never Knew Love Like This, performs on Tuesday July 4th.
“I am very pleased and extremely excited to be headlining the fantastic Greenwich Music Time on July 4th. American Independence Day! I have heard some really great things about The Old Royal Naval College and of course know the importance of this historical London landmark and can’t wait to play there. We are going to have the biggest party Greenwich has ever seen man, so bring your dancing feet, let yourself go and we will turn back the clock and make it kinda right!”
Greenwich Music Time’s Peter Taylor:
“Alexander O’Neal and The Jacksons are two acts we’ve wanted to book for Greenwich Music Time since its inception. We are delighted to be bringing them to London and we’ve no doubt that this year’s series will be one of the highlights of the summer’s live music calendar.”
