New Jackson tribute show launched

New Jackson tribute show launched

Cirque du Soleil has launched a second tribute show to the late pop star Michael Jackson.

Cirque president Daniel Lamarre said the company had planned two shows "from the first day we got the rights from the (Jackson) estate," with the first production, Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour, delivering a stadium-sized concert-type presentation and Michael Jackson One being a more intimate affair.

The world premiere at the weekend attracted celebrities including musician Justin Bieber, as well as actors Neil Patrick Harris and Allison Janney.

Also in attendance were Michael Jackson's brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie, the latter noting during arrivals that most of the Jackson family would be inside the theatre for the premiere except for Michael's daughter, Paris. The teen was taken by ambulance from her family's home June 5 and hospitalised.

"She's going to be okay," Jackie said. "She's getting better."

The brothers said even less when asked about the progress of the lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live. The family claims the company hired Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the King of Pop's 2009 death.

"We can't elaborate on that, because it's still ongoing," replied Marlon Jackson.

Following a dramatic week of courtroom testimony surrounding the star's final days, the brothers seemed relieved to be revisiting Michael's life and work.

"One is all about the music" said Marlon. "This is part of giving back and sharing his legacy."
