Chris Brown is set to make his musical comeback by headlining the upcoming tribute concert to Michael Jackson in Vienna, Austria on September 26th. Chris has not performed in public since the Chrihannagate incident.

The news was revealed by the King of Pop’s brother Jermaine at a press conference in Vienna today. Jermaine told reporters, “Michael was his idol and he (Brown) dedicated his first number one hit in the U.S. to Michael. Chris is a very, very talented artist.”

Other artists on the bill include Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole and Sister Sledge, as well as American boyband US5. The rest of the line up will be unveiled in a series of press conferences

to be held over the course of this week with scheduled stops in both London and Berlin, Germany. Jermaine revealed the tribute concert, which will take place in front of 65,000 fans at Vienna’s former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace, will feature a multi-cultural line up – because his brother’s music touched people all over the globe.

He adds, “We have many, many surprises. This is growing more and more, and we have more names to announce. We want this to be a dignified performance for Michael – he attracted people from around the globe so we need to have a diverse mix of talent.”
