Cirque Du Soleil’s ‘Michael Jackson ONE’ Show To Hit Vegas This Summer
Fans who never got to see Michael Jackson perform live will get another chance to at least experience hearing his music amongst a sell-out crowd at a big venue, thanks again to Cirque du Soleil. Canada’s high-brow circus company has teamed up with the Jackson estate once again, this time for Michael Jackson ONE, a show at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Strip in Las Vegas. The production will celebrate the King of Pop’s “multifaceted persona and changing musical styles.” Previews start May 23 and the show officially premieres June 29.
The last time these two forces teamed up, it was for Michael Jackson: IMMORTAL World Tour, which was a $60 million traveling spectacle that finished No. 4 on the list of top-grossing tours of 2012, pulling in $147 million. So yeah, this Vegas show has a big glove to fill.
