As andPOP reported yesterday, Cirque du Soleil, the popular circus troupe that does shows in practically every hotel in Vegas, announced that it is creating a show around Michael Jackson’s music.
However not everybody is supporting this idea. Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson’s father, is less than thrilled about the new show. “That’s something else, isn’t it?” Joe Jackson told PopEater when asked how he felt about his son inspiring a real-life circus. He added, “I won’t see it.”
On the other hand, Jackson’s mother Katherine supports the initiative. “Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way.”
The Jackson estate will own half of the project, with the Montreal-based performance company as their partner.
