On Saturday, August 11, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will welcome The Jacksons: Unity Tour 2012 to the Seaside Summer Concert Series at Coney Island.
Saturday's concert is the first time that the legendary musical family has played in Brooklyn and the first-ever Saturday night show in the 34-year history of the Seaside Concerts.
“The Seaside Summer Concert Series is thrilled to bring the Jacksons to Coney Island for their inaugural performance in Brooklyn at a very special Saturday night show—the first in the long history of the concerts,” said BP Markowitz.
“The Jacksons’ music spans multiple generations and is known to even the most casual music fan, and we couldn’t be more excited than to have them perform for free at what will surely be one of the biggest nights ever on Coney Island.”
For more than three decades, the Seaside Summer Concert Series has attracted top name classic rock, pop, oldies, contemporary and Latin performers to Coney Island. This summer, shows are again being held at West 21st Street and Surf Avenue, next to the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones.
A limited number of $5 rental chairs in a specially designated area are available on a first come, first served basis. All shows begin at 7:30pm.
