Disclosure: I was provided with complimentary tickets to see this performance.
Spending a night listening to the incredible music of Michael Jackson is the true definition of a blissful evening. When you couple that with a amazing performance by Cirque Du Soleil, you give birth to a masterpiece unlike any other: Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour.
Cirque Du Soleil once again proved to be the cream of the crop when it comes to putting on a show of extreme talent and breath taking feats. Breathing new life into Michael Jackson and his music, this one of a kind show pays respectful tribute to a true legend and his legacy.
From Thriller to Beat It, the show really captured the passion and meaning behind each song. The choreography of each set was magical. I have a very strong feeling that Michael would be proud.
The anticipation and excitement grew bigger and louder with each musical number performed. Costume designs matched that of Michael’s one of a kind artistic imagination. In addition to the outstanding performances there were plenty of interactive moments when the artists came out to the audience to chat it up.
They Don’t Care About Us really captivated the audience with a powerfully choreographed number resembling that of Michael’s own styling during his This Is It Tour. Recall and picture soldiers wearing robot suits while marching. I am sure this seems very familiar and hits close to home when thinking of this song.
Closing out the show with Man In The Mirror was in true MJ fashion. A song he chose repeatedly for the finale of his concerts. The show ended with a standing ovation from the crowd for all of the dancers, artists, singers, acrobats, and musicians.
Bring the whole family along for a memorable night with Michael. It’s a show for all ages, brought along our 7 month old and 2 year old. I am grateful for the chance to introduce my daughter to the unforgettable stylings of the music I grew up listening to.
