Cirque Du Soleil’s Michael Jackson Tribute Show To Come To Rupp

The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil announced Monday that "Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour" will perform in Lexington in May.

The tour, which is one of the top ten grossing music tours of all time, will come to Rupp Arena Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Saturday, February 22 at 10 am.

Created by Cirque du Soleil and directed by Jamie King, The Immortal World Tour is a departure from the company’s previous touring shows, according to tour officials.

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 creativity.

A news release from the touring company says the underpinnings of The Immortal World Tour are Michael Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics—the driving force behind the show—brought to life with extraordinary power and breathless intensity.

Through unforgettable performances, the show underscores Michael’s global messages of love, peace and unity, and the band includes some of the same artists who previously worked side by side with Michael.
