L-R: Jackie, Marlon and Tito Jackson

*Sorry Louisville and Cincinnati.

The Jacksons say they don’t want to put the cart before the horse, so they’ve has cancelled their first two concerts because they’ve been busy recording their new album.

Shows in Louisville and Cincinnati are being skipped and chalked up to “scheduling conflicts.”

But a source close to the Jacksons tells TMZ the brothers (Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito) want to finish their studio album before they hit the road so they can perform the new tracks on tour.

It’s all good as the Jacksons plan to make up the missed dates, but nothing is planned so far.

As of now the Unity tour is scheduled to  kick off  June 20 in Rama, Ontario, Canada.
