Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Kayne West and a host of other huge stars have been approached to join the 'Michael Forever' tribute concert to take place in Wales in October

Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Kayne West have been approached to join the 'Michael Forever' tribute concert.

The show marking the life of Michael Jackson - who passed away from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, as he was preparing to make a comeback - will take place on October 8 at the Stadium of Light in Cardiff, Wales, and his mother, Katherine, has asked some of the biggest stars in music to perform.

The elaborate invitations state: "My son was a fan of your work and it would be our pleasure to have you be a part of this historic event. The music will be provided by seasoned musicians including members of Michael's band.

"We would like you to select one of two of your favourite Michael Jackson songs to perform that day in honour of my son."

Of those invited, Kanye West is said to be on board for the event, as is British soul singer Craig David and Cee Lo Green, while Christina Aguilera is also said to be trying to make it.

Other stars, including Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars have reportedly had to respectfully decline their invitations, due to scheduling conflicts.

More acts for the line up are expected to be confirmed in coming days. It is also expected that many of Michael's family will take to the stage at the event.

This Tribute concert started off on the wrong foot and it's getting stupider by the minute. How can we trust the Jackson Family at this point? Their main objective is to milk the late Michael for all he is worth without shame. I'd like to remind everybody that Joe Jackson has teamed up with a professional French crook Julian Rouas to launch a cheesy line of perfumes while illegally using the image of Michael.
