    Jackson Family And Crew Talk About New Cirque Du Soleil Show, 'Michael Jackson Immortal'

    "Michael Jackson Immortal," the latest Cirque du Soleil collaboration, had its US premiere Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Arena in Las Vegas. On hand to celebrate were a host of major celebs as well as Katherine, Tito and Jackie Jackson and Michael's kids, who got a full backstage tour prior to the performance. Katherine and the kids entered the arena to a standing ovation from the crowd. "Michael would definitely be proud," Jackie Jackson mentioned backstage following the performance. "He always loved Cirque performances, this show made the most sense for his fans," added Tito Jackson.

    In questioning how much of the "This Is It" concert segments were included in "Immortal," Travis Payne, Michael's long time choreographer, added, "All of the iconic 'chunks' as we know them including 'Thriller,' 'Smooth Criminal' and some things from Dangerous were not changed and we took those moments and brought them to this show and surrounded them with new ideas." A few of the original "This Is It" videos and dance segments were included, helping make this arena-based show feel more like an actual MJ concert.

    Unlike most highly innovative and creative Cirque shows, "Immortal" relies heavily on dancing and music elements in addition to the jaw-dropping aerial, trampoline and acrobatic acts we expect. Everything was set to an absolutely amazing MJ mash-up soundtrack mastered by musical designer Kevin Antunes, who felt like a kid in a candy shop when producing the score (album now available). "I was given full access to the MJ library with no restrictions," he told MTV News. Working with family members, the estate and Sony archivists, Antunes was able to include legendary songs such as "Thriller" and "Billie Jean" as well as rarely (if ever) heard tracks from ABC and a Spanish-sung version of "I Just Can’t Stop Loving You." All of Michael’s leads are from recordings while the back-up and instrumentals are performed live.

    Brilliant stage direction by Jamie King, also a long time MJ collaborator and VMA nominee, who helps bring both emotion and energy to each act.

    The North American tour of "Michael Jackson Immortal" continues through summer 2012 in major US cities with a version of the show expected to eventually land in its own permanent theater at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas by 2013.

    Мисля, че поне нещата с цирка могат да ти се уредят. Доколкото разбрах се очаква съвсем скоро да насрочат датите за турнетата в Европа и Азия. Мисля, че ще можем да си го позволим, където и да отидат в Европа. Нужно е само желание.

    Why Michael Jackson Is The Top Touring Act In America, Again

    Sammy Davis, Jr. once said that “everything Michael Jackson does on stage is exactly right.” The King of Pop indeed left some big leather loafers to fill, but judging by the crowd’s reaction at MGM’s Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour is doing an admirable job.

    Among those in attendance for Saturday night’s performance: Cee Lo Green, as well as Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles. Seated within view of the reporters assembled to chronicle the show, the couple laughed and smiled as acrobats and dancers swirled across the stage–zombies popping out of coffins, contortionists emerging from giant books, even a performer dressed as a giant white glove–all while a live band blasted out the soundtrack beneath Jackson’s soaring vocals.

    “We have all done our best to make this a celebration of his essence in his absence,” musical director Greg Phillinganes told me shortly after the show’s debut. “His passion for humanity … his commitment to excellence, his flair for the big show, we’ve tried to incorporate all those factors.”

    Immortal is the highest-grossing live show in the country for the second week in a row, bringing in just shy of $2 million per night in Vegas. That’s over half a million dollars more than the next-highest earner, Taylor Swift, according to concert data provider Pollstar.

    It’s all the more impressive given that the Jackson show has been parked at the 8,500-seat Mandalay Bay Theatre for much of December; Swift has been playing arenas more than twice that size, as Immortal will soon be doing when resumes its trek across the North America. An international leg is set to follow in late 2012.

    A joint venture between the Michael Jackson estate and Cirque du Soleil, Immortal opened in October and is already approaching $100 million in ticket sales. That should come as no surprise, given the extraordinary spectacle that audiences witness with each performance.

    The show begins with a spotlight illuminating a mime clad in all white; his shell-toed sneakers and backwards hat make him look more b-boy than sad clown. As he cozies up to an image of Michael Jackson that fills a giant video screen at the back of the stage, the pictures melts away to reveal the band, and a troupe of dancers streams onto the stage.

    The mime serves as a guide throughout the performance, starting with Jackson’s early years and the song “Have You Seen My Childhood.” There’s a miniature hot air balloon and a Jackson Five montage complete with dancers dressed as Marlon, Tito, Jermaine, Jackie and Michael–oversized afros included. As the show continues, a replica of the Neverland gates rolls out, followed by performers dressed as Bubbles the Chimp and some of the other animals that once resided in Jackson’s private zoo.

    Review: Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour

    Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour comes to Oakland’s Oracle Arena this Tuesday and Wednesday, January 17 and 18.

    For diehard Michael Jackson fans and dedicated Cirque-goers, IMMORTAL might prove polarizing. One would hope that the marriage of two of the most revered entertainers, Michael Jackson and the organization that forever changed the meaning of the word “circus,” would be one for the books. But it didn’t quite achieve the heights promised by Jackson’s doomed THIS IS IT comeback tour, which he was finalizing before his untimely death in 2009.

    Love it or hate it, there is no question about how much time, planning, effort, and collaboration with Michael Jackson’s estate went into the making of this incredibly complex production. In typical Cirque fashion, the costumes, set designs, cutting-edge projection technology, fireworks and light show surpassed expectations. And to see Jackson’s signature moves performed by a legion of dancers while Jackson oversees from footage projected above, is delightful, if not a bit morbid.

    The acrobatic duo’s aerial ballet to “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” was one highlight. Which goes to show that when Cirque just did what they do best, using Jackson’s songs as a soundtrack to show off talent plucked from all over the planet, it was perfection. It was when they attempted literal interpretations of Jackson’s lyrics that things went south.

    Feeling more red light district than circus, the adult moments, like the scantily clad pole dancer who performed to “Dangerous,” garnered the biggest cheers. But, like the gigantic baby MJ puppet and the dancer flopping around in a sparkly glove outfit, the childhood-chasing kid-friendly moments proved most disappointing. An irony that would have been lost on the religious fanatics protesting outside the HP Pavilion.

    The most powerful moment came in the form of “They Don’t Really Care About Us,” a number that was designed for the THIS IS IT concert tour. Artists dressed like robot soldiers marched in unison beneath disturbing footage of international strife and human suffering. Key quotes about love and hope, delivered by Jackson’s disembodied voice, narrated some of several goosebumps-eliciting moments.

    Classic footage of Jackson as a child will bring tears to anyone who understands the rarity of a voice like that or isn’t dead inside. But if the show’s aim is to make audiences feel the immortal presence of a beloved performer, it may have missed the mark. With allusions to his mortality undeniably present throughout, there is something bittersweet and heartbreaking about the show’s approach to Jackson’s legacy. If you are the type who enjoyed watching Michael Jackson tributes and specials after his death, this is about a thousand times better than that.

    But if you’re expecting Cirque’s ubiquitous French clowns, highbrow allusions to Greek mythology, and superhuman feats of strength and flexibility, this isn’t the ideal choice. In that it was over-the-top, visually riveting, aurally overwhelming, superficially entertaining, somewhat disjointed and a bit longer than you’d like, this feels more like a rock-concert-meets-blockbuster-3D-film than a typical Cirque du Soleil show.

    In the end, one cannot help but wonder what MJ himself would have thought. Would this show have met his high standards of performing excellence or would the King of Pop have deemed it the King of Flop? Though the eponymous documentary afforded us a brief glimpse, unfortunately we will never see the THIS IS IT tour live. For now Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour is your best, and only, alternative.

    Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson show: 'Immortal' but not immune
    The tribute to the late pop icon, which is coming to Staples Center, is not without controversy.



    The inspiration for Cirque du Soleil's new show, "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour," began in the late 1980s when Michael Jackson hopped into a van (sans security) with his longtime attorney John Branca to see the French Canadian performance troupe for the first time in Santa Monica. FOR THE RECORD:
    The headline on an earlier online version of this article referred to the Michael Jackson-inspired " 'Immoral" show; this version corrects the reference to read "Immortal."
    The mega-pop star was fascinated by the avant-garde circus and asked to meet the cast backstage, said Branca, who was named co-executor of Jackson's estate along with music executive John McClain in accordance with Jackson's 2002 will. Over the years, Jackson took his three children to Cirque shows and toured Cirque's home base in Montreal.

    Branca said the estate — which is divided among Jackson's mother, Katherine, his children and charities — wished to pay homage to the performer after his death on June 25, 2009. Though the estate released the film of Jackson's concert rehearsals for a would-be comeback series, "This Is It," shortly after he died, Branca said they wanted to present Jackson's songs and dance legacy in a live setting. Given the performer's appreciation for Cirque, the idea for "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour" was born several months after his death.

    "We wanted to have a live show, because, as [Motown Records founder] Berry Gordy said, 'Michael was the greatest entertainer that ever lived,'" Branca said recently over breakfast in Los Angeles. "We couldn't ever imagine having an impersonator, or a tribute show, because no one's Michael. That would just be unthinkable."

    The glitzy spectacle pairs Jackson's tunes with Cirque's signature acrobatics, the singer's iconic dance moves and Jackson's voice and video imagery. The show will hit the Staples Center — the same venue that hosted Jackson's public memorial service — on Friday. Due to strong demand, two new dates for August 14 and 15 were recently added. The tour is directed by longtime Jackson collaborator Jamie King, with costumes by "This Is It" designer Zaldy Goco, dance numbers by 10 choreographers including Travis Payne, and musical design courtesy of Kevin Antunes.

    Despite the talent and effort behind the show, not everyone is bedazzled with the production, or how Jackson's legacy is being handled.

    "The show lacks focus, and only occasionally touches the larger-than-life stage presence that Michael Jackson projected in his concerts," wrote the Oregonian's Grant Butler last November, adding that the tour was "a carnival that's as much of a head-scratching paradox as the scandal-plagued last decade of Jackson's life."

    And Jackson's siblings Randy and Jermaine had criticized family and the estate for supporting tributes to their brother such as the lavish "Michael Forever" concert last October in Wales, claiming it was ill-timed during the manslaughter trial of Jackson's physician Conrad Murray.

    Katherine Jackson, however, ended up walking the red carpet the day "Immortal" opened in Montreal last October.

    "There was a special artistic relationship between Michael and Cirque du Soleil," said Cirque President Daniel Lamarre, who hosted Michael Jackson in Montreal in 2002. "When John Branca came to Michael's mother, Katherine, to talk about the show, because there were so many companies interested, she said it was a no-brainer, that Michael wanted to work with Cirque du Soleil all his life."

    Planning the production began in earnest in the fall of '09, when Branca got a call from Celine Dion's rep, saying Dion's husband, René Angélil, wanted to introduce the Jackson estate to Cirque co-founder and Chief Executive Guy Laliberte. Laliberte was in orbit, literally, as part of a space tourist program.

    After Laliberte returned from space, Branca told him a permanent show in Las Vegas would be ideal, in the tradition of Cirque's Beatles "Love" show, but Laliberte persuaded Branca and McClain to expand beyond that, to a touring show at rock arenas. A permanent, more intimate, tech-heavy show in Las Vegas will open at Mandalay Bay in early 2013, as the tour winds down its global leg.

    Still, the estate wanted to make sure the production was "a Michael show," said Branca, instead of, well, a circus.

    "We said to Kevin, 'Listen, we don't want to hear any accordions in 'Beat It.' … It's gotta be Michael Jackson,'" Branca said. "We said to Jamie [King], 'We don't want any — and I don't want to insult anybody — French clowns dancing at a Michael Jackson show.'"

    King's name topped the pack as director because he danced with Jackson on his '92 "Dangerous" world tour and had a background in pop and hip-hop. He wanted to include multiple forms of movement, including mime, which Jackson studied with Marcel Marceau.

    Antunes hunkered down for a year listening to Jackson's master recordings before launching into rearranging the tunes. He decided to start "Thriller" with finger snaps and only Jackson's voice to show the layers of the song before exploding it into the traditional "Thriller" dance. He added a choir for extra oomph to Jackson's '96 "They Don't Care About Us," featuring oversized soldiers decorated with neon peace signs designed by Goco.

    "That's the awesome moment of the show and it's truly epic. It's the Michael with a message and a meaning. It makes everyone get the chills," Antunes said. "For his family, his friends, his fans, there is a responsibility left up to me. This has been on the music side that we don't drop the ball."

    Rehearsals started last summer in Montreal, and Jackson's brother Jackie visited them and "loved it," Branca said. In late summer, about 15 designated "super fans" were flown in to give feedback, and their input resulted in changing some of the music, Branca said.

    "I wanted to create a show that Michael would have loved to create if he had created for Cirque," King said. "'Will You Be There' is one of my favorites in the show.... There are giant hearts that illuminate and light up. His essence appears. It's almost like he comes back to say, 'I love you, I'll always be here.'"

    At the show's Las Vegas opening in December, Jackson's daughter Paris broke down and sobbed during the number, Branca said.

    A representation of Jackson's spirit also moves through the show in the form of a hip-hop dancer named Salah Benlemqawanssa. He's dressed all in white, and moves fluidly in and out of numbers.

    "When Michael passed, I went into a bit of autopilot, personally. I was on my way to his home when I found out," said Payne, who'd worked on the "This Is It" choreography. "The first thing out of my mouth was, 'This is not done, this is not finished.'"
