Michael Jackson’s music and dance could soon be coming to a big tent near you!
Cirque du Soleil and Jackson’s estate have struck a deal to bring the late pop star’s music to the big tent in an all new Cirque du Soleil show coming next year. Cirque du Soleil president and CEO Daniel Lamarre first talked to Jackson six years ago about working together. He knew Jackson was a huge fan of the show!
The show will be based on Jackson’s music and take influences from his dance to create their amazing acrobatic stunts.
“Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way,” said Katherine Jackson, the singer’s mother.
The show will debut late 2011 with a tour and a Las Vegas show in 2012.
