Michael Jackson's upcoming tribute concert will be the first live pay-per-view show on Facebook.com.

Millions of fans in over 100 countries are expected to tune in to see the likes of the Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Smokey Robinson perform at the Michael Forever Tribute Concert in Wales on October 8th thanks to a deal between Facebook, Milyoni, multi-platform distribution company Ridgeline Entertainment and fanetwork, a global social broadcaster.

"The ability to broadcast concerts into every corner of the globe and connect directly with fans through Facebook is the most significant opportunity that can happen within the entertainment industry today," said Ridgeline's executive producer, Charlie Stuart Gay. "We are fortunate that technology can complement the producers and artists to pay tribute in a manner that is as utterly unique as the legend that will forever remain 'The King of Pop.'"

Using Milyoni's Social Live technology and powered by fanetwork, the show will be available to all fans for less than five dollars.
