The summer of Michael Jackson continues, as a Web site Thursday selling tickets to a Jackson tribute show in Vienna, Austria was temporarily crashed by more than one million fans attempting to log in to buy tickets to the September 26 show.

Interestingly enough, not one performer for the highly-anticipated concert has been announced -- except for the show's promoter, Jackson's older brother Jermaine.

"The concept of The Tribute is that some of the world's leading artists will perform Michael Jackson's greatest hits live onstage in an imperial setting, befitting the King of Pop," according to a statement on the concert website. The statement also says, "there is no right or legal claim whatsoever that certain artists will perform at The Tribute. All ticket sales are final. Any refund or discount due to the performance or non-performance of a specific artist is hereby explicitly excluded."

Breaking News

Though names ranging from Madonna to Whitney Houston have been dropped as potential headliners, the Web site said the rest of the performers would be announced at the end of August.

Jackson died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest June 25 in Los Angeles; results of an autopsy conducted on the pop icon are being withheld by the Los Angeles Coroner's Office until the police investigation has been completed.
