The article is here: http://www.spin.com/#articles/cirque-du-soleil-michael-jackson-one-las-vegas

Main points I think are strange, it starts to preview May 23rd and it premiers June 29th. Four days after 4 years....  :confused:

This is from the Forbes site posted today about the CDS shows.

Michael Jackson's New Vegas Show 'One' Will Double The Fun

 
Michael Jackson One: Who says you can't be in two places at the same time?

Michael Jackson pulled in an estimated $145 million last year from beyond the grave–tens of millions more than any living musician. A big part of that: his Immortal World Tour, a joint venture between the Michael Jackson Estate and Cirque du Soleil. It grossed $160 million in its first leg, tops among North American tours in 2012.

On the heels of that success, Jackson’s estate and Cirque du Soliel have announced another endeavor: Michael Jackson One, a brand-new show set to run indefinitely at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, set to debut in preview form on May 23rd, 2013. The official premiere will follow on June 29th, 2013.

“Michael Jackson is an all-time phenomenal artist, both timeless and contemporary,” said Cirque chief Daniel Lamarre in a statement. “As a creative challenge, this project is the ultimate. Through the use of cutting edge technology, we will produce a new Cirque du Soleil theatrical experience not only respectful of Michael’s legacy but also very distinctive from Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour.”

The new show means that Michael Jackson will soon be able to do something that no artist has ever done before: play two arena shows at the same time. Even as fans gather for the first performance of One in Vegas on May 23rd, the same thing will be happening on the other side of the world as the Immortal World Tour rolls into Nagoya, Japan. Just hours after the official Vegas premier the following month, Immortal will take the stage in Taipei, Taiwan.


Directed by Jamie King, the plot of Michael Jackson One will follow four misfits as they embark upon a musical, visual, theatrical adventure. The title of the show reflects its inspiration and recurring theme–unity and peace–the sort of themes Jackson explored in songs like “Man In The Mirror” and “Heal The World.”

Said estate co-executors John Branca and John McClain in a statement:

We are guided by Michael’s own philosophy in all that we do. In preparing for this production, Michael’s message to the cast and crew for his This Is It concerts was foremost in our minds. He counseled them on what the audience experience should be: ‘They want wonderful experiences. We want to take them places that they’ve never been before. We want to show them talent like they’ve never seen before. We’re putting love back into the world to remind the world that love is important. WE’RE ALL ONE. That is the message.’ We feel the same, and that is what we are delivering both to lifelong fans and those just discovering his artistic genius with Michael Jackson One.”

In addition to being a brilliant entertainer–taking millions places they hadn’t been through music and videos alike–Jackson was also quite a savvy businessman in his day (a theme I’m exploring in my upcoming book, Michael Jackson, Inc., due out next year for Simon & Schuster).

He outmaneuvered billionaires and music executives to acquire ATV, the company that owned the Beatles’ publishing catalog, for $47.5 million in 1985. That investment is now worth somewhere around $1 billion.

It seems Jackson the musician would have enjoyed the notion of his songs reaching potentially twice as many people through two Cirque du Soleil shows–and it’s likely that Jackson the businessman would have been quite pleased by the financial implications as well.

Apparently this writer Zac OMalley is about to release his next book titled Michael Jackson Inc.  Prolly about the business and profits made after 'death'.

Reminds me of the Threatened spoken lyrics part: "Be in two places at the same time".

Andrea, that sentence stood out for me too.  Also, Michael has always, and still "is" doing things no artist has ever done before.  He always said in his interviews that he wanted to pioneer an innovate whatever art form he was talking about at the time.

In the first article,
Quote
Guided and inspired by his music, four misfits set out on a transformative adventure. By journey's end, they will personify Michael's agility, courage, playfulness and love.

This sounds like The Wizard of Oz, or The Whizz.  The Scarecrow needed a brain, the lion needed bravery, the tinman needed a heart, and Dorothy wanted to go home.

Lots of MJ projection out there around the world, which I love!

i definitely want some more answers on this, i feel as if this might be the planning of Michael himself. Like the other tours were for the executives to profit off of his name and music, and maybe this is were the BAM will take place... Four years later, Michael is always in the news but the week of preimer he will be more than ever because that will be the week he died.. I dont know its just strange for me.. Another thing is they mention "two places at once" not just once.... but TWICE! Hmmmm....... :computer-losy-smiley: BUT!! Maybe two places at once.. "dead" and alive?????? We shall see!!

Quote from "This Is It" ... "we've got 4 years to get it right" ... making the coming events take on greatest significance due to the timing.  And the Cirque de Soleil connection reminds me of that original hoax of P.T. Barnum, the greatest circus master in history and someone Michael greatly admired.  Bring it on Michael  :th_bravo:

two places at once like he had to be to be with sharpton and also sign that will  :penguin:
"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves."  




Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

Interesting but maybe it is should be seen around the world. 

And it is not a Tour if it is only permanent in vegas, but if Michael bams, would he perform there or would he only take the opening for him as platform??? and how  could the rest of the world witnessed it, because only on media news-tv THE MEDIA WE AND HE KNOWS..... but why not i thought the same day he left the same day or few days later.

But see you in july still possible or even connected with it.
KEEP THE FAITH IT IS ALL WITH L.O.V.E. HEAL THE WORLD MJ ALIVE AND WELL IN OUR HEARTS SOULS MINDS AND PHYSICALLY WE WILL SEE BELIEVE HOPE DIES AT LAST LOVE AND HOPE ARE VERY STRONG FORCES PEACE LOVE TO ALL
