The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil have announced Michael Jackson ONE, a production that will run this summer exclusively at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The show is written and directed by Jaime King, who was a dancer on Jackson's Dangerous World Tour in 1992, and produced Madonna's MDNA Tour last year.
Michael Jackson ONE marks the second creative collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson, who last worked together on the top-grossing, acrobatic Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, which is currently touring worldwide.
The new show, says Cirque du Soleil, is aimed at "creating a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius." Given the iconic performances the late-superstar is known for, Michael Jackson ONE should prove to be quite a spectacle.
The presale window for Cirque Club Members, MichaelJackson.com subscribers and members of MGM Resorts’ M life Program begins February 22, while the general sale begins March 7. Tickets start at $69 and are sure to go fast.
