Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil

 

cirque5

The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil announced today that Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, one of the top 10 grossing music tours of all time, will perform in Greensboro on April 11-12, 2014 at the Greensboro Coliseum. Since its world premiere in Montreal in October 2011, this electrifying production has thrilled audiences across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

Created by Cirque du Soleil and directed by Jamie King, THE IMMORTAL World Tour is a departure from the company’s previous touring shows. Featuring 49 international dancers, musicians, and acrobats, it is presented in a rock concert format that combines the excitement and innovation of Michael Jackson’s music and choreography with Cirque du Soleil’s unparalleled creativity.

The underpinnings of THE IMMORTAL World Tour are Michael Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics—the driving force behind the show—brought to life with extraordinary power and breathless intensity. Through unforgettable performances, the show underscores Michael’s global messages of love, peace and unity, and the band includes some of the same artists who previously worked side by side with Michael.  Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Michael’s creative genius for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — People all over the country are moving their feet to celebrate National Dance Day, and the Boys and Girls Club didn’t want to miss out on the fun.

Carolyn Woodruff is a volunteer and has spent hours helping the participants perfect their routine.

They headed to the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Greensboro to create a dance video on Saturday.

The group hopes they’ll have a chance at being featured on the FOX show “So You Think You Can Dance.”

The children wore masks of Nigel Lythgoe – a judge on the show.
