Joe JacksonJoe Jackson will not be attending Michael Jackson's fan tribute on Saturday because he has prior commitments in Ohio. Jackson tells PopEater he will be in the Buckeye State for the next few days doing TV and news interviews as well as visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He says he will be "celebrating Michael."

"I miss him," Joe says. He won't be attending the gravesite memorial either, but is having a friend bring up something special that he made for Michael.

Katherine Jackson and La Toya Jackson will be attending the tribute at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday.

Jackson's children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, will be in Hawaii, away from all of it. The family wants to provide the kids with a peaceful, quiet time away from the press on the anniversary of their father's passing, family friends reveal.
