Cirque du Soleil announce Michael Jackson show
22 Apr 2010
The show will go on tour in late 2011, with a permanent Las Vegas production scheduled for 2012.
"Fans will experience the excitement of a Michael Jackson concert," said the Montreal-based circus company. The production - to be co-funded by Cirque du Soleil and the Jackson estate - follows earlier shows featuring the music of Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
Jackson was known to be a fan of the Cirque and had considered working with them prior to his death last June.
Katherine Jackson, mother of Michael Jackson commented. “Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.”
