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 the creativity of Cirque du Soleil.
The underpinnings of The Immortal World Tour are Michael Jackson's music and lyrics. The show underscores Jackson's global messages of love, peace and unity, and the band includes some of the same artists who previously worked with him.
Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Jackson's creativity for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.
