Cirque Du Soleil -- Michael Jackson Immortalized

Cirque Du Soleil -- Michael Jackson Immortalized
9 minutes ago by TMZ Staff  

Cirque Du Soleil is unveiling the images that will drive what could be the biggest show under the big top ever -- driven by Michael Jackson's music ... and TMZ got hold of the image that will drive the production.



The world tour is a partnership between the MJ Estate and Cirque -- each sharing 50% of the profits.  It will kick off in the Fall of next year in Canada, and work its way south to the US of A.

The show will end up with a permanent home at an MGM Mirage hotel in Las Vegas -- probably in late 2012.

This project -- unlike some others -- got the thumbs up from Katherine Jackson.

Funny though that I checked the Cirque Du Soleil website right after posting the TMZ article here, and there was nothing there yet about the MJ Immortal tour.  Just now I checked again and voila...there it was...finally...

hmm... the picture of MJ on the poster looks like the one from Super Bowl performance, it is not most classic pose of MJ :?
and the stadium behind... looks like "here i am, follow me and let's go" :? ... or not.... :?

That's a strange picture of Michael's face. I know the pose fits Michael but the face is slightly different.

Also - the word "IMMoRTAL" - eternal, "undying", everlasting, never-ending, endless.

It seems to me that they'd choose a word associated with Michael. Like Elvis - his is Viva Elvis which makes sense. Immortal conjurs in my mind the image of magic.

I just went to the Cirque De Soleil website. The picture on the front page is interesting - not sure how long it's been there but it reminds me of blue eyed Michael.

Well yes, that's pretty obvious...

Quote
Topping off a fabulous month, Michael performed at the 1993 Superbowl Halftime show on the 31st of January. The show included “Jam”, “Billie Jean”, “Black or White” and “Heal the World”, which included a 98,000 audience card stunt, and a 750 member choir. Approximately 120 million people tuned into the event; one of the largest viewing audiences in TV history.

How you're gonna top that Mike?  ;) Never mind, I already know the answer!  :lol:

This poster is perfect - and makes total sense considering that by then Michael will have already BAM'd *fingers crossed*!



"BACK" IN ACTION , that sounds about right!  ;)

The first thing that triggered the Elvis connection in my mind was the intro text: "Two great forces in entertainment have combined... And in 2011, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour kicks off in Montreal."

I'm not so sure they refer to Jamie and Chantal...  ;)

What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare. It isn’t. It’s the beginning.

Also - the word "IMMoRTAL" - eternal, "undying", everlasting, never-ending, endless.

The design is interesting as well. Why is "the" put on the "O" and not on "R" for example, or on the "-OR-" to be exactly in the middle of the word? Could it bear any message?

The first could be THEO, a given name deriving from the Greek word Theos which means GOD.
"THE O", where O could be the initial of Origin, Oxygen, O2 etc, or even zero - as in Year Zero (ARG)...

Anyway, "immortal" and "the legend lives on" are no coincidences whatsoever.


LOVE,
Andy

Something is weird with that poster. The body seems his, the head looks different. I would love to see a HR image of this.

Well Cirque just absolutely confirmed my belief all along that This Is It was the rehearsal for this IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR.  During the outtakes, as mentioned here on the forum earlier, it was said "it might as well have been Cirque du Soleil there" and of course a couple of aerialists from Cirque were in the outtakes and some of the props were shown during the instrumental of Who Is It in This Is It with the fire scenes.  We all tried to figure out what the heck was going on during Earth Song's ending footage in the movie with the 3D audience and fake tractor image and cardboard Michael, etc.   :lol:  :lol:   I'm fully convinced now that what we were looking at was a "sketch" from the Cirque Show because that scene in the movie looks just like this one!....complete with MJ's Army, his soldiers of love....

Every time I play a video on TMZ, such as the 'Back in Action' Cirque video, the ad right before the video starts is a Sony ad. Anybody else get that? Just curious, since apparently there are no coincidences, what that might mean.

It does seem strange, indeed. Moreover, the text design has a peculiar trait. If you can notice, the "I" in MICHAEL and the "N" in JACKSON are different than the other letters. Moreover, they are the only letters that are glued, merged with a neighboring letter. If we put the glued letters together we get ICON... :?:


LOVE,
Andy
