The air inside the Millennium Center in Cardiff is buzzing with excitement. Sound checks for tomorrow’s tribute to Michael Jackson have been going on all day.

[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alien Ant Farm[/lastfm], who just signed with Dallas-based Executive Music Group, will not only will perform their 2001 hit cover of “Smooth Criminal,” but they will also put their spin on “PYT.” While they never met Jackson, they wanted to honor the King of Pop’s rock side when they chose to cover “Smooth Criminal.” The video for their #1 hit single is a mix of easily recognizable references to favorite Michael Jackson videos.

Lead singer, Dryden Mitchell, has been a Michael Jackson fan from a young age. His first concert at the age of 10 was to see Jackson perform at Dodger Stadium. He begged his mom to take him to impress a young lady.

The Michael Forever Tribute will be the first ever, live, global, pay-per-view event in entertainment history, and you can get that stream through Facebook.  Find out more information on the event by visiting www.michaelforevertribute.com or the Facebook page.
