Michael Jackson, THE IMMORTAL world tour is a partnership between the MJ Estate and Cirque — each sharing 50% of the profits. It will kick off in October, 2011 in Canada, and work its way to Seattle for two nights, November 9 and 10, 2011 at Key Arena. Portland, Oregon, which was scheduled for only one night of the tour – November 18, has now added November 19 and 20 to its schedule.
The show will end up with a permanent home at the MGM Mirage hotel in Las Vegas — probably in late 2012. There will be over 60 international performers, bringing together the best of Michael Jackson’s music and dance moves with the creativity and artistry of Cirque du Soleil. The 57-million dollar production has Jackson impersonators, fire twirlers, high-flying acts and special effects inspired by the King of Pop.
