Michael Jackson's Cirque Du Soleil Show Debuts 2011!

Michael Jackson will be getting the Cirque Du Soleil treatment!

The French-Canadian acrobatic troupe will be putting together an arena-touring show for fall 2011. A permanent Las Vegas show will arrive in 2012.

“Having attended Cirque du Soleil performances with Michael, I know he was a huge fan,” John Branca, the co-executor of Michael‘s estate, said in a statement. “We are excited to be partners with Cirque du Soleil to give Michael‘s fans a truly unique way to hear, see and feel Michael‘s music.”

The King of Pop‘s mother, Katherine, added in a statement, “Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.”

Cirque Du Soleil recently built successful shows around music from the Beatles (“The Beatles LOVE”) and Elvis Presley (“Viva Elvis”).

    After the King of Rock got his own show in Vegas, it was clear that it would be the King of Pop’s turn next. This will be a phenomenal show, just like VIVA ELVIS is. The trailer and more: http://bit.ly/9GWGmj

    I would not go and see anything to do with Michael Jackson. I never liked his style of singing or dancing. Too immature.

    Eric Says:

    Thats a real circus… the one that can make you have fun with its clowns, mimes and acrobats without torturing poor animals.

    ALL GET OFF SO GO AHEAD Says:

    I said it before and I will say it again… THE MAN IS WORTH MORE
    DEAD THAN ALIVE..!!! Wow permanent .. eh.. Like Celine Dion
    Get the show on the road and have the Jackson Estate pay for it..!!

    Yeah in honor of all the drug addicted deaths in the U. S … Go ahead.
    He died in his own bedroom in his own bed and had the drug delivered to his house.. and put into his own arm.. so you tell me how
    great it is that a drug addict right up until he died in his own home.
    Gets his own show…
