Created by Cirque du Soleil and directed by Jamie King, “The Immortal World Tour” is a departure from the company’s previous touring shows. Featuring 49 international dancers, musicians, and acrobats, it is presented in a rock concert format that combines the excitement and innovation of Michael Jackson’s music and choreography with Cirque du Soleil’s unparalleled creativity.
The underpinnings of “The Immortal World Tour” are Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics—the driving force behind the show, according to a news release. The show underscores Jackson’s global messages of love, peace and unity, and the band includes some of the same artists who previously worked side by side with Jackson. Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Jackson’s creative genius for the first time, the show aims to capture the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.
