This show is a riveting fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that immerses audiences in Michael’s creative world and literally turns his signature moves upside down… Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Michael’s creative genius for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop.
Eleven months after announcing the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, writer/director Jamie King and his collaborators at Cirque du Soleil just launched the show in early october in Montreal. And the Jackson estate — which authorized and partnered in the project — is making more plans for the late star for 2012.
This show has incorporated 10 choreographers and a live band led by longtime Jackson keyboardist Gregg Phillinganes that will perform more than 60 songs from Jackson’s catalog — backing the late singer’s recorded vocals.
The Immortal World Tour will visit 60 North American cities before wrapping up in early July in Chicago. The production will then take up residency at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
A soundtrack album from The Immortal World Tour is tentatively stated to be released by year’s end.
