Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour

Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour 

When: Sat., March 10 2012
Price: $50-$175

As their high-flying appearance at this year's Oscars showed us, the limber, exotic men and women of Cirque du Soleil will always be in demand to do their extravagant, acrobatic thing. And they know this, which explains why the Canadian circus-arts behemoth always has shows touring all over the place. Just last summer, the company brought to these parts a restaged arena version of Alegria, their longtime big-top tent show. Now, they're coming back to jump, dance, fly—all that stuff—but this time to the music of Michael Jackson. Just as they memorably staged a show around the music of the Beatles with their only-in-Las Vegas production Love, the Cirque is now giving all worldwide fans of the dearly departed pop icon one last concert experience with Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.

To make sure this is a respectful extravaganza, Cirque hooked up with a few folks who worked with MJ, including director/ concert tour mastermind-to-the-stars Jamie King (who was a dancer during Jackson's Dangerous world tour) and musical director/ veteran session musician Greg Phillinganes (who was also Jackson's tour musical director). Saturday's performance begins at 8 p.m.; there's also a Sunday show at 4 p.m. —Craig D. Lindsey
