Jackson’s concert is the culmination of a national campaign. Fans across the country had two months last fall to vote, with the winning city receiving a concert from Jackson. The little town of Mineral collected over 31,000 votes and won the opportunity to host the concert. Mineral continues to repair and rebuild after they were the epicenter of a rare East Coast earthquake that hit on August, 23 2011.
