Jacksons continue storied career
The Jacksons recently celebrated 50 years as one of the most successful groups in music history.
Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, five brothers from Gary, Indiana, known originally as The Jackson 5 and later The Jacksons, rose to fame for their combination of musical talent and choreography. They earned the status of pop royalty in the music world, providing the launching pad for what would become Michael Jackson’s legendary solo career.
The group found international success at Motown in 1969, and their Motown recordings alone have sold in excess of 200 million. In 1976, the group left Motown for Epic Records, and changed their name to The Jacksons. They released many hit albums in the ensuing years. When the brothers united for The Victory Tour in 1984, it became the highest-grossing concert series ever staged in the United States.
The Jacksons have become the inspiration for several generations of boy bands, and were honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1980. They were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. In 2016, “ABC” joined “I Want You Back” to be inducted into the Recording Academy’s Grammy Hall of Fame.
Hard Rock Live Northern Indiana is located at 5400 West 29th Avenue in Gary, Indiana.
