THE ESTATE OF MICHAEL JACKSON
AND CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO DEVELOP
MICHAEL JACKSON SHOWS

First arena touring show slated for late 2011
Las Vegas permanent show to open in 2012

Los Angeles (April 20, 2010) – Two great forces in entertainment have combined with the announcement of an unprecedented arrangement between The Estate of Michael Jackson, represented by Executors John Branca and John McLain, and Cirque du Soleil for the creation, development, production and promotion of Michael Jackson projects, featuring touring and permanent shows, based on the music and songs of Michael Jackson.  Special lifestyle projects, including a nightclub to open with the Las Vegas production, will also be developed.

The first of these projects will be an arena-touring show in which fans will experience the excitement of a Michael Jackson concert, expected to debut in late Fall 2011. That arena show is anticipated to enjoy an extended run in Las Vegas in conjunction with longtime Cirque du Soleil partner MGM MIRAGE. The Las Vegas permanent show, also in partnership with MGM MIRAGE, is expected to open in late 2012. MGM MIRAGE will announce the location and plans for the permanent theatrical venue at a later date.

John Branca, Co-Executor for The Estate of Michael Jackson, commented, “This will not just be a tribute to Michael’s musical genius, but a live entertainment experience that uses the most advanced technology to push every creative boundary as Michael always did. Having attended Cirque du Soleil performances with Michael, I know he was a huge fan. We are excited to be partners with Cirque du Soleil to give Michael’s fans a truly unique way to hear, see and feel Michael’s music.”

Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil, commented, “Michael Jackson is the King of Pop and an all-time phenomenal artist, both timeless and contemporary. As a creative challenge, this project is the ultimate. Through the use of cutting edge technology, we will produce a Cirque du Soleil experience not only worthy of Michael but unlike any other we have created before. We are also so pleased that our longtime partner MGM MIRAGE has once again joined us in presenting another unique creative experience in Las Vegas. ”

John McClain, Co-Executor for The Estate of Michael Jackson, commented, “There will never be a multi-faceted entrepreneur, humanitarian and innovator like Michael and it is only befitting that this partnership be with Cirque du Soleil. No artist electrified the stage more than Michael did. We expect that his fans will come away from these Cirque du Soleil performances feeling the exhilaration of a Michael Jackson experience and with an even greater appreciation of his legacy.”

Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil added “We are honored and thrilled to be in partnership with the ultimate and most important record selling artist of all time. This association between two international entertainment brands promises to deliver to fans of both Michael and Cirque du Soleil unique artistic experiences”

Bill Hornbuckle, Chief Marketing Officer of MGM MIRAGE said “Las Vegas is known worldwide for its unparalleled entertainment offerings, many of which have been developed by the creative geniuses at Cirque du Soleil. We have been honored to call Cirque our partner for many years and are humbled now by the opportunity to work with them to create a show that will commemorate one of the most legendary forces in entertainment in our lifetime.”

Katherine Jackson, mother of Michael Jackson commented. “Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.”

The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil will each own 50 percent of each Michael Jackson project, sharing equally in the cost of creating, developing, building and producing the projects and in the profits from each project.  The Estate of Michael Jackson will also receive royalty payments on various aspects of its intellectual property used in the Michael Jackson projects.

Do you know if the arena tour will come to the UK?
Mixed feelings about this, as amazing as cirque productions are, i think this will evoke so many painful emotions. Dont know if i can ever really celebrate Michael and his music again, i know thats an awful thing to say, i stil listen to his music all the time, and watch the dvds, but i no longer feel the joy i once did, just unrelentling grief, pain and regret!!

Stage sketches...


You know what, it breaks my heart. Yes, it will surely be amazing. But basically, they'll do TII, only without Michael. That... I cant bear.

yeah dito. i really dont know how to feel its just the most weird feeling. just saw a clip about this on the news. love the idea of the giving tree. but this is so dam hard. hurts so much. dont know how to feel and when i saw the clip on the news it put a knot in my stomach. one part of me wants to see it as it does look amazing but the other half doesnt cause as a hardcore fan all that mattered was mj being there. be it an mj day event or travelling to see him at a award show. you wouldnt go unless mj was there as there was no point. but now u are in the situation where this is all u have. so do u go see it and try to enjoy it or do u think to yourself whats the point theres no mj and its just gonna be upseting seeing this when u should have seen the this is it show 20 times instead.i guess the only good thing is its gonna be such a long time till it gets to europe and theres the permenant show in vegas that u have time to work out your feelings on this

and imangine where its gonna play in London (possibly the only place in the uk). yeah we all know where. the thought of that is vomit inducing no way i could go there.
