Immortal Michael Jackson In Tasteful Legacy Shocker!
WHILE Michael Jackson’s manslaughter trial descends further into farce with Lou Ferrigno throwing his flabby biceps around and Dr Conrad Murray’s many mistresses being paraded before the jury like cows at a farmer’s market, something most peculiar is happening around the corpse of the King Of Pop.
Someone is actually doing something with his legacy that not only looks like a whole heap of fun, but also, something he’d invariably approve of.
Instead of the usual grotesque circus of bottom feeders and snarks, this time, we’ve got an actual circus.
Forget the nonsense going down in Wales this weekend, which will see luminaries like Alien Ant Farm, 3T and Craig David taking to the stage of the worst timed tribute show in history. This is all about Cirque du Soleil who will be giving everyone The Immortal World Tour.
The company stated that it’s “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”.
Bloody hell. Don’t hype it up too much. There’s also a record coming out of the music which will be released on November 21st, featuring ‘re-imagined’ tracks by musical designer Kevin Antunes. Tracks include rehashed versions of Ben, Smooth Criminal and a J5 medley.
If it’s anything like The Beatles: Love project, this will be great.
Sorry, what? You wanted some sneering? Okay. We can only hope that the clowns recreate Murray’s Propfol injections and a skeletal figure moonwalks into view, ready to frighten some minors.
