I really wanted to like this show and we were really looking forward to it. We are both huge Michael Jackson fans and work in the entertainment industry. The show was very monotonous, no props, alternate staging or real costume changes (beside a...continued

The entertainment was ok. I was suprised that it was only 1 hr. The dancers were top notch. To bad there was a bunch of things on the stage that made it hard to see what was going on. We also got up from our tables and stood in the back of the...continued

The show was not in 3d. The seating was awful. The performer was talented but the show overall was lame and in need of more costumes and dancers and was just a bore. I expected so much more from the previews on line, the MJ performer didnt even...continued

Description

The LaserSpectacular _The Spirit of Michael _is an amazing multimedia experience that pays tribute to the King of Pop. Spanning his forty-year career, the show takes the audience on a visual journey beginning with Michael’s most recent achievements, and then travels backwards to his early years as a child prodigy.

The show features:

A Live performance – An M.J. ‘tribute artist’ is a part of this production. This performer will be featured in a ghost-like atmosphere through the use of theatrical scrims and shadow screens. On several songs, the show and the performance are staged just as though it were a live Michael Jackson concert setting. The tribute artists who travel with this show have all been acknowledged as the best-of-the-best top performers by Michael Jackson himself. One in particular was named by Michael to be his ‘official understudy’ after he personally viewed 116 performers.

Lasers & special effect lighting – Many of Michael Jackson’s hits lend themselves to an artistic laser and light performance, much in the style of the Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular. Through the use of animated laser graphics, laser beams and aerials, the lights and lasers re-create images of Michael with 3-D holographic effects. The lighting show is a concert-style configuration. Along with the laser beams and graphics, it’s certain to wow the audience with the same power and excitement of a live concert.

Multimedia – Michael Jackson was the undisputed King of Pop. As applied in numerous works in video, film, and live appearances, his unique and varied creations did much to expand the boundaries of the visual arts, thereby making Michael not only the King of Pop, but the King of Multimedia as well. His best works include some of the most memorable video moments in entertainment, including his 1995 MTV Music Awards performance. In the course of the show, these special moments are coupled with some of his famous short films such as “Thriller” and “Black or White”, and other big hit memories from MTV. Special interview segments feature people from all walks of life remembering Michael, and so honoring him as one of the most outstanding performers of our time.

Concert Sound – 50,000 watts of pure rockin’ concert sound is sure to put the audience ‘inside’ the music… the show offers an opportunity to hear Michael Jackson’s hits like they’ve never been heard before!
