The name of Music legend Michael Jackson, has been taken out of Quincy Jones‘ London show.
The music producer’s concert was first announced as a night in June celebrating three of Michael Jackson’s most iconic albums.
The flyer said “Off the Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” were going to be performed with a live symphony orchestra.
That’s now changed to Quincy Jones: Presents Soundtrack of the 80s. Defining Albums and Iconic Songs.
Songs by Michael Jackson will still be performed on the night.
The show has been described as a world exclusive.
Music fans were told there would be back-to-back performances of three of Michael Jackson’s albums.
Quincy Jones produced Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad and the show in London was supposed to be a celebration of his work.
The original flyer said there would also be a feature film of the producer talking about the making of the records.
The iconic @QuincyDJones is back with a brand new show. See @michaeljackson's Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad performed by a symphony orchestra. Joining Quincy will be conductor @julesbuckley & some very special guests. Tickets on sale Friday at 9am— The O2 (@TheO2) February 11, 2019

The new flyer now appears to focus on iconic songs and defining albums from the 80s.
The names of Michael Jackson’s albums have been removed and there are no references to the singer in the descriptions.
Songs by Michael Jackson listed include Thriller, Man in the Mirror and Off the Wall.
Tickets went on sale for it in February.
In March, two men claimed Michael Jackson had abused them in a Channel 4 documentary called Leaving Neverland.
In the programme, James Safechuck and Wade Robson claim they were abused by the singer when they were children.
Michael Jackson’s family deny the allegations against the singer, who died in 2009.
But the claims have cast a huge cloud over his name and his legacy has been called into question.
Some fans are asking for a refund accusing the organisers of false advertising.
@seetickets Hello. Due to false advertising, I want a refund to tickets for the Quincy Jones concert June 23 @ O2 Arena. Bought in Feb. Ticketmaster are already refunding. I understand you don't have an email for this. Is the best way to do this over the phone? Please DM. Thanks. pic.twitter.com/9QZux2lER5— Dan Villalobos (@villalobosdan) May 6, 2019
Other fans say the new concert is not what they paid and they wanted to see performances of Michael Jackson’s albums not 80’s hits.
