The Jackson Brothers will return to their home state of Indiana for a concert this summer.

Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson will perform at the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville, Ind. on June 22.  The concert will be a part of a 27-city tour in honor of their late brother Michael, who died in 2009. 

The brothers, originally from Gary, will begin their tour on June 18 in Louisville, Ky. 

The plaza’s president, Charlie Blum, told The Times of Munster that the Jackson Brothers will perform songs from the time they were known as the Jackson 5.

"This is a dream coming true," Jackie Jackson said in a statement. "I can't believe this is finally happening. There's nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world -- and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us."

Tickets for the concert go on sale on April 14.  Prices range from $55 to $80.  Tickets can be purchased by calling (219) 769-6311 or by going to StarPlazaTheatre.com
