Michael Jackson's Cirque Du Soleil Show Debuts 2011!
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”).
