On Monday, Cirque du Soleil created ‘Michael Jackson – The Immortal World Tour’ in Ottawa before parting to 60 other North American cities. Their world premiere was at the Bell Centre, Sunday night. The show sold $40 million worth of tickets in a day. The show was incredibly remarkable and very different from what Cirque has been doing before.
Michael Jackson – The Immortal World Tour includes circus acts yet does not fall in the category of a circus. It is not even a rock concert or dance show. This is a stunning, fast-paced show for the audience with short attention spans, fluttering from one song to the next, hardly ever settling down with one for a complete number.
Apparently, there are no intentions of depicting Jackson’s biography, but it all starts with a five-clown band, stirring up the Jackson Five. It’s big to hear the J5 songs and see Michael on the screen as a child. The show offers a quite wide-ranging variety of Jackson’s famous songs.
Michael Jackson – The Immortal World Tour will return to the Bell Centre March 20, 21 and 22 and July 6-7, 2012. The prices of tickets vary from $50 to $250.
