Cirque du Soleil has a history of creating shows around specific themes, including musical artists like The Beatles. In that vein, they've designed a brand-new spectacle to honor Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, in Michael Jackson The Immortal. Buzz has been building for over a year, but the tour's finally about to launch! See below for a full list of current scheduled dates, and check out the Michael Jackson The Immortal tickets page for future updates.
