    In what many might say is just downright bad luck, the 2010 tribute concert for the late King of Pop has been canceled after the event’s organizer, World Awards Media GmbH, closed up shop last month. Led by Michael’s brother Jermaine Jackson, the show has had its share of problems…

    Originally, the tribute was to take place last September in Vienna, but organizers had trouble getting artists to wedge a trip to Austria on such short notice. To make matters worse, sales for the show stalled when high-profile acts, including Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, and Natalie Cole, started to back out from the event, which would have occurred in a 17th-century castle. However, the event was still in the cards, only postponed to the summer, and in London no less.

    There was still hope. Upon its closing, World Awards Media GmbH turned all queries to the company’s liquidator, Martin Schneider. However, Schneider shot down the plans, as he recently told Reuters, “The company cannot sign any new contracts and will certainly not plan any new events.”
