Speaking from L.A. he said: “This show is going to be an incredibly personal and moving evening for me.

“Remember that Michael’s music, his great, great songs, have been an inspiration to my whole life and certainly formed the soundtrack to my childhood. When I was a little kid of six or seven growing up in Los Angeles, there was Michael recording Thriller, and all his early hits, just a few miles away across town - obviously I didn’t know him at that time, but I loved him as a fan.

“Then one day about four years ago, with The Black Eyed Peas well established, I got a call from him I will never forget. I then had the great privilege of working with him and getting to know him and his beautiful family.”

“That’s why The Black Eyed Peas wouldn’t miss being at the Millennium Stadium for this gig on October 8th: we all owe Michael such a lot.”

Appearing on the night will be members of the Jackson family, including, from the original Jackson Five, Michael’s brother Marlon, who said: "We‘re all really delighted and touched that the Black Eyed Peas are able to come and take part “ he commented.

“My brother rated and the original things he does in music very highly. I guess you could say it was a case of mutual respect.”
