Some stars leave behind a legacy that speaks only through their classic songs, others leave behind a mansion that is then converted into a museum for fans to enjoy. Michael Jackson however, was never an ordinary star. He was a superstar. Such an idol requires a multi-million dollar internationally touring circus stage show! Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque du Soleil starts in Montreal on October 2, 2011…
This stage show extravaganza directed by the incomparable Jamie King is not just a tribute to the late King of Pop. No, that would be too easy. Instead, this show literally immerses the spectators into the creative mind, the passion and world of Michael Jackson. Using state of the art visuals, dance, music, and choreography, the spirit of the worlds greatest entertainer comes alive.
Using Michael’s Giving Tree, Cirque de Soleil tells the story of his global message of peace, love, a unity. Through a series of breathtaking performances, audiences members will be transported into a realm of creative expression, fairytale, magic, beauty and fragility. Jamie King, the show’s writer and director, has been responsible for some of the most impressive and successful touring shows in recent years. From Madonna’s Confessions tour to Britney’s Circus, Jamie King is a visionary of the modern spectacle.
This is why people have put so much faith in King to bring Michael Jackson‘s mind and energy to the stage. Jamie King brings together ten innovative choreographers, some of which have even worked with the King of Pop himself. They will all deliver and portray their unique take on Michael Jackson’s creative dancing. I think it’s safe to say we’ll see more than a few tributes to his famous moon walk.
Cirque du Soleil’s The Immortal World Tour is a stadium touring show, which means it’s not done under the traditional Grand Chapiteau but in an arena. As usual this Montreal show is the world premier, before it embarks on an international circuit. Tickets to the show are sold-out and now only available at a premium in the secondary re-sale market. These tickets are hot commodities, so if you are a massive Michael Jackson fan, this is one show that can’t be missed. See your idol not only come to life, but live on!
