Cirque Announces a Michael Jackson themed show…

The much rumored Cirque Du Soleil show featuring Michael Jackson's music and inspiration will be coming to U.S. arenas in 2011 and permanently to Las Vegas in 2012. It's been said that Michael and Cirque were already in talks about doing a collaboration before his untimely death on June 25, 2009.


The magic of Cirque du Soleil and the genius of the King of Pop will be combined in the creation, development, and production of Michael Jackson projects based on the music and songs of Michael Jackson. An arena-touring show is expected to debut in late Fall 2011 and a Las Vegas permanent show is expected to open in late 2012. Special lifestyle projects, including a nightclub to open with the Las Vegas show, will also be developed

Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil said: “Michael Jackson is the King of Pop and an all-time phenomenal artist, both timeless and contemporary. As a creative challenge, this project is the ultimate. Through the use of cutting edge technology, we will produce a Cirque du Soleil experience not only worthy of Michael but unlike any other we have created before. We are also so pleased that our longtime partner MGM MIRAGE has once again joined us in presenting another unique creative experience in Las Vegas”

This is sure to be great news to the millions of Michael Jackson & Cirque Du Soleil fans worldwide and will help keep the legend growing strong for many years to come! You can read more about these two new shows and read the official press release here.
