"Behind Closed Doors" singer Peter Andre has been in "regular contact" with Michael Jackson's sister La Toya and is hoping to meet her next week to "finalize" their plans for a show.

The 36-year-old star revealed in New! magazine:
Over the last few weeks I have been in regular contact with La Toya Jackson about some kind of tribute for her brother, Michael.

Everyone who knows me knows how much I idolized Michael and how much his music influenced me, so I feel really honored to be part of this. There isn’t anything quite set in stone yet but we have four or five ideas, including a tribute concert or a TV special.

La Toya is flying to the UK next week, so we are going to meet up and hopefully put our ideas into action. La Toya is one of the few Jacksons I haven’t met yet, so I am really looking forward to spending some time with her.
A tribute show for Michael has been announced to take place in Vienna, Austria, in September. It is being organized by World Awards Media GmbH and Michael’s brother Jermaine and will take place at the Schoenbrunn Palace.

Unconfirmed reports suggest U2, Madonna, Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston could all be performing.

Michael -- who died in June -- was due to stage a 50-night residency in London starting from July, and many had presumed a concert in honor of him would take place in the UK capital.
