    Issue #128: SEP 2014 – Released!

    Since we last spoke Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour held its final curtain call (on August 31st in Guadalajara, Mexico), to much fanfare. Although not a favorite of mine, the show proved highly successful for Cirque du Soleil: more than 3 million fans across 27 countries on 4 continents experienced the show, and it frequently found itself among the top earning tours in the world. Not bad, not bad! Other than the closing of IMMORTAL and the pending final shows of Dralion later in the year (or more technically mid January next year), it's been another quiet month, news wise. There have been some rumblings heard that when the Cirque Online Boutique reappears - which it should do some time in the fall - that not only will there be a KURIOS CD for purchase, but also a DVD of the show to get our hands on! The show is now in Toronto so we could see a filming there soon enough, but considering how long it takes Cirque to release a DVD these days (Amaluna took a year from filming to release), I won't hold my breath. Still, if they can make it happen I'll be one of the first to order it! (Better still, put it out on their Video on Demand system... we could use a few more new titles there!)

    Issue #127: AUG 2014 – Released!

    Despite a few bits here and there, it's been a quiet month on the Cirque news front. Perhaps the biggest headline, but not necessarily the least expected news, was confirmation from Cirque du Soleil that the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour would actually be ending its world-wide journey at the end of August, as previously rumored. The "official" statement, which was posted on Dralion's Facebook page, simply reads: "More than 3 million fans across 27 countries on fourcontinents have experienced MJ IMMORTAL. As we enter the final month of the tour and near our last performance in Guadalajara on August 31, don't miss your chance to experience this iconic show that has rightfully secured its place as one of the highest grossing music tours ever!" So, in just a few short weeks we'll be saying goodbye to another Cirque du Soleil show. But that is just the beginning... We'll also be waving goodbye to Dralion on January 18, 2015, after playing its final show in the (normally) frosty state of Alaska (from where, I've heard said, you can see Russia... if you're visiting the right house.) Of course in the mix is the debut of JOYÀ, Cirque's dinner show concept at the Riviera Maya resort area in Mexico.

    Issue #123: APR 2014 – Released!

    This is it! Later this month Cirque du Soleil will debut its latest touring show - KURIOS: CABINET OF CURIOSITIES - a spectacle that dares to ask: what if we could alter reality at will? Yours truly will be there to see it take its first few steps, to delve into this world of curiosities, becoming immersed in a mysterious and fascinating realm that disorients my senses and challenges all my perceptions... will I ask if what I'm seeing is real or just a figment of my imagination? Time will tell. I won't be alone, though. A number of fans (and readers of Fascination!) will also be in attendance - the Cirquesters! Together we're going to step into this steam-punky curio cabinet of an ambitious inventor who defies the laws of time, space and dimension to have our world literally turned upside down! We have nothing fancy planned for our gathering other than to enjoy each other's company, and, of course, enjoy Cirque du Soleil. I can't wait to be back in Montreal too; seeing a new Cirque show debut is always a good excuse to make the trip up.
