Cirque du Soleil taged successful shows featuring The Beatles’ music and the legacy of Elvis Presley. Now the entertaining troupe will present the pop music giant Michael Jackson in a traveling show.
The Montreal, Quebec-based entertainers have created “Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour,” set to debut October 2011 with ticket sales beginning November 6.
The writer and director of the show will be Jamie King, it was announced yesterday. King has been Madonna’s creative director for the last dozen years, including her 2008 Sticky and Sweet world tour, and has also worked with Rihanna, Celine Dion, Asian superstar Rain, Pink, and Christina Aguilera.
The concept of the presentation centers on “Michael’s inspirational Giving Tree – the wellspring of creativity where his love of music and dance, fairy tale and magic, and the fragile beauty of nature are unlocked,” according to the release.
Cirque Du Soleil’s fusion of visuals, dance, music, and acrobatic production will celebrate Jackson’s legacy, featuring 60 international performers who showcase the King of Pop’s choreography, literally turning “his signature moves upside down.” The show has been approved by Jackson’s estate.
Opening on October 2, 2011 at the Bell Centre in Cirque’s home of Montreal, the 30-city tour will cross Canada before debuting in the US in Seattle on November 9, 2011.
