Next month’s Michael Jackson tribute on the grounds of a 17th century palace in Vienna will feature a three-hour, star-studded show that will be televised live to a global audience of approximately one-billion people.   The Associated Press reports that negotiations are ongoing with networks over the rights to broadcast what’s being billed as Jackson’s main global tribute, and the pop legend’s brother Jermaine is assembling the lineup of what he calls “ten of the biggest artists of our time.”   Austrian media reports that Madonna, U2, Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston might be among the artists performing Jackson hits on a crown-shaped outdoor stage in front of Schoenbrunn Palace.   However, no artists have been officially announced.   Tickets go on sale in nine days.
