THOUSANDS of people from Hartlepool and across the region rocked with some of the biggest superstars in the world at an open air music gig.
American stars The Jacksons headlined Hardwick Live, at Hardwick Hall, in Sedgefield, along with a string of other acts including Adam Ant, Dodgy, Simple Minds, and Scouting for Girls.
Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, and Marlon Jackson put on an incredible show at the annual garden party – the foursome’s only UK date.
They had the crowd boogying on down to a medley of Jackson 5 songs.
And in tribute to Michael, who died in 2009, they covered some of his songs including Blame It On The Boogie and Rock With You.
The icons made performing look as easy as ABC. They opened explosively with Can You Feel It and closed the show with even bigger bangs from a showering display of fireworks.
