Trouble for Michael Jackson Tribute Show

With less than 24 hours before the Michael Jackson tribute concert is set to begin in Cardiff, Wales, the event is experiencing some last minute set-backs. First, top star draws The Black Eyed Peas had to pull out for "unavoidable circumstances".

On top of that, another scheduled headlining performer, Chris Brown, has also had to cancel his appearance. It seems he is having trouble gaining entry into the UK following his arrest and conviction resulting from his assault on superstar ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

There was more bad news when Facebook decided it would cancel plans to stream the concert tribute online due to international rights issues. The "Michael Forever" concert was scheduled for 10AM PST and viewers would have to pay $4-5 to watch the entire concert online.

Despite all the bad news, there are plenty of remaining exciting acts still on the roster, including Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson, Christina Aguilera and Leona Lewis.
