Nadirah’s Perspective:

Last month, my husband and I were fortunate to go and check out Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour presented by Cirque du Soleil at the United Center.  I must say that it was the experience of a lifetime.  Please keep in mind that I was blessed to attend the BAD Tour and nothing will ever top that on my bucket list; however, I will say that this show was definitely number 2. Although the “immortal” King of Pop is not physically with us, Michael Jackson’s spirit lives on and it is brilliantly showcased on stage throughout various performances.  Remembered for his personal influences within the music industry, gifts of songs, messages of love and awareness, and plethora of dance movements, the premise of this concert provides an ingenious platform to artistically give a storyline of Michael’s contributions to the world through visual art, movement, and music.  This is displayed throughout this spectacular show with the use of animated characters, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, singers, and musicians.   The event opener introduced five talented dancers and by way of infusing the use of a projector, a humongous projection screen, and high wired safety harnesses, they managed to outrun speeding El trains and scaled tall buildings to the song,  Working Day and Night.  Other highlights of the show included a curvaceous woman dressed in a nude skintight catsuit who took aerial pole dancing to another level while performing to the song, “Dangerous” (Lol, I do believe that was the favor among the men), an outrageously gifted one-legged dancer/gymnast, a music montage performed by 10 dancers covered in multi-colored light suits, and separately well-choreographed dance routines with silver-metallic robots and 1930-40’s pin-striped suited gangsters.   SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t give the whole truth by omitting the fact that there was one part of the show that I didn’t like... a dance routine to the song, “Scream.” I felt that this particular part of the show needed to be revised; but overall, everything else about the show was spectacular.  

If given the chance, please take the opportunity to check out Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour before it travels internationally and embrace an entertaining evening filled with great music and performances.  An enormous perk is a night of hearing timeless songs: Thriller, Will You Be There, Billie Jean, They Don’t Really Care about Us, Smooth Criminal, Earth Song and the list goes on and on. My husband can attest that I left the stadium and parking lot singing and playing Michael Jackson songs all night long. WE MISS YOU MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Troy’s Perspective:

The Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil was breathtaking. This two-hour long spectacle was one for all ages to enjoy and take part in the incomparable music of Michael Jackson. The art and beauty of the performers to the music was phenomenal. My wife was on her feet, clapping, singing and dancing the night away with others while being regaled by the performers as they judiciously clamber in/out of various positions. This production was vehemently enjoyed by all who watched as we admired and listened to the musical largesse that Michael Jackson’s legacy left for the world to remember. Magic on the wire and control of fire, this was truly an explosion of sight, sound and rhythm that has no bounds. For a fun time that you will truly cherish, see Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour for pure enjoyment and entertainment. 

It's A Must See!
