Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito returned to the Apollo—where they first performed in the late '60s for the venue’s legendary Amateur Night series—as part of their Unity tour, three years after their brother Michael's death. The Jacksons opened with an exuberant "Can You Feel It," and the hits rolled on out, from "Blame It on the Boogie" to "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)" and a medley including "ABC" and "I Want You Back." The crew celebrated their brother, performing such early classics as "Rock With You" and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" to the joy of the crowd, at what felt like a homecoming show of sorts.
