Description

The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil announced the official international launch of _Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour™ _written and directed by Jamie King, the leading concert director in pop music today.

This once-in-a-lifetime electrifying production will combine Michael Jackson music and choreography with Cirque du Soleil creativity to give fans worldwide a unique view into the spirit, passion and heart of the artistic genius who forever transformed global pop culture.

A riveting fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that immerses audiences in Michael’s creative world and literally turns his signature moves upside down, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour unfolds Michael Jackson’s artistry before the eyes of the audience. Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Michael’s creative genius for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.

THE IMMORTAL World Tour takes place in a fantastical realm where we discover Michael’s inspirational Giving Tree—the wellspring of his creativity. The secrets of Michael’s inner world are unlocked—his love of music and dance, fairy tale and magic, and the fragile beauty of nature.

The underpinnings of THE IMMORTAL World Tour are Michael Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics—the driving force behind the show—brought to life with extraordinary power and breathless intensity. Through unforgettable performances _Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour _underscores Michael’s global messages of love, peace and unity.

In selecting Jamie King as Writer and Director for THE IMMORTAL World Tour, which will feature 60 international performers, The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil chose a director Variety called one of the most influential “movers and shakers” in the music industry, and the “Jerry Bruckheimer of tent-pole concert tours". A multiple Emmy Award® and MTV Video Music Award® nominee, and greatly influenced by his early years working for both Prince and Michael Jackson, he has choreographed some of the most popular music videos and directed some of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time. For the past 12 years, he has served as Madonna’s creative director, having most recently directed her 2008 Sticky & Sweet world tour, as well as her 2006 record-breaking Confessions world tour and hit music video, “Sorry." He most recently directed Rihanna’s Last Girl On Earth world tour, Celine Dion’s Taking Chances world tour, The Return of the Spice Girls reunion tour, Britney Spears’ Circus tour and Avril Lavigne’s Best Damn tour. He previously directed and choreographed world tours for Madonna (Re-Invention and Drowned World); Asian superstar Rain (Rain’s Coming); Ricky Martin (Black & White and La Vida Loca); Pink (Try This); Christina Aguilera (Back to Basics and Stripped); and his first collaboration with Britney Spears (Oops I Did It Again). He has worked with an array of superstars including Mariah Carey, Shakira, George Michael, Elton John, Diana Ross, Jennifer Lopez and even Ellen DeGeneres. This is Jamie’s first show with Cirque du Soleil.

_Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour _will call on the diverse talents of the following creative minds: Guy Laliberté, Creative Guide; Jamie King, Writer and Director; Chantal Tremblay, Director of Creation; Mark Fisher, Set Designer; Zaldy Goco, Costume Designer; Kevin Antunes, Musical Designer; Martin Labrecque, Lighting Designer; Olivier Goulet, Projection Designer; François Desjardins, Sound Designer; Scott Osgood, Rigging and Acrobatic Equipment Designer; Germain Guillemot, Acrobatic Performance Designer; Michael Curry, Props Designer.
