André Rieu performed during the Michael Jackson & Friends concert in Munich, Germany on June 27, 1999.
On July 12, Jermaine takes the stage during André Rieu & Friends concert in Maastricht that is jam packed with about 10,000 people on the square who enjoy the performances by several guests artists including Dutch comic André van Duin and Trini Lopez. Jermaine performs “Smile” and receives standing ovations from the audience after he finishes the song.
During the show’s finale, Jermaine returns to the stage to sing along to “Para Siempre” with all the other performers. The show doesn’t end after this finale because André and the orchestra continue to play for the audience. Jermaine gets back on stage and performs “When The Rain Begins To Fall”.
During the real finale of the show, all the performers return to the stage once more to sing “Ave” together. During this part, Jermaine has a lot of fun and laughs continuously having comic André van Duin standing next to him while all the performers wave to the audience for minutes.
A Dutch TV network airs the Rieu & Friends concert in Maastricht during Christmas 2013. The broadcast receives the highest rating during the holidays with 1.740.000 viewers.

After 6 weeks of rehearsals with his band in early 1986, Jermaine started his first solo tour called the Precious Moments Tour. From the month of March until 14 September, 1986.

In 2013, Jermaine launched the You Are Not Alone The Musical in France. In the show Jermaine tells the story of his family based on his memoirs with pictures and music, including performing “When The Rain Begins to Fall”, “Do What You Do”, the beautiful tribute song “Oh Mother” and the unreleased ballad “The First Time You Love”. At the end of the musical show, Jermaine performs another 25-minute medley of Jackson classics, which gets the audience in the theaters on their feet singing and dancing along. Unfortunately, producer of the show David Serero mistreated Jermaine during the tour and failed to meet the production standards as requested by Jermaine for the musical show. The musical show concept is being developed and planned to return to stages the way Jermaine intended and envisions it with high quality productions including a full orchestra.

"There's been so much written about my family over the years, and a lot of that has been written has not been accurate.
So I decided to write a book called 'You Are Not Alone, Through A Brother's Eyes'. This is the true story, because I lived it."
- Jermaine Jackson, 2013
