Janet Jackson won't attend tribute concert

August 29, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Janet Jackson says she will not attend a tribute concert this fall in honor of her late brother Michael.

That's because the Oct. 8 show in Wales coincides with the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. Opening statements are to begin on Sept. 27.

In July, several Jackson family members joined promoters to announce the concert.

Soon after, Jackson's brothers Jermaine and Randy announced they will not attend because of the trial.
