Michael Jackson's passing last week has created many tribute plans around the country, both immediate and in the upcoming weeks and months. The Only Colors Blog last week recalled one of the best Spartan Marching Band moments in recent memory, their performance of Michael Jackson's Thriller. This led to the question, "Will the Spartan Marching Band be doing a tribute, perhaps even performing Thriller again?"
Well, from Director John Madden, the answer is no. Sort of. The Spartan Marching Band has no plans to add Thriller to any of this season's shows, but they are planning a "Motown at 50" show, and that will feature the Jackson 5. So the music of Michael Jackson will sound in Spartan Stadium this season!
