Jackie Jackson, Tito Jackson, Berry Gordy Jr. and Marlon Jackson arrive at the red carpet for Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson One” at Mandalay Bay on Saturday, June 29, 2013.

The late Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and two of his children, Michael Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael Jackson, aka Blanket, are set to attend the two preview performances starting tonight of The Jacksons in “Rocktellz & Cocktails” at PH Showroom in Planet Hollywood.

The mini-residency of 40 shows celebrates with its star-studded gala red carpet premiere Saturday night. Brothers Jackie, who lives in Las Vegas, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon will present a full-on concert with hit songs and personal stories.

The music icons are one of the bestselling groups of all time, and their show is an interactive and unforgettable journey through their historic lives and influential music career with nine No. 1 hits and 14 Top 10 winners.

Producer Adam Steck told me: “The stories are really personal, some quite unbelievable. Audiences will treasure and adore their songs. They are American music royalty.”

I talked with Jackie Jackson about the show: “The show will start with our early lives back in Gary, Ind., with the music of “I Want You Back” and “ABC.” A lot of memories came flooding back as we re-created our extraordinary journey, ” he told me.
