Michael Jackson's Life A Circus

Michael Jackson's songs will be used for a new Cirque de Soleil show.

The legacy of the late pop singer - who passed away from a massive overdose of anaesthetic Propofol in June last year - will be set to an acrobatic live show by the Canadian dramatic circus troupe, whom Michael was a keen admirer of.

The show will become a permanent production to be staged in Las Vegas, US, from 2012, after a deal brokered by the 'Thriller' singer's estate.

John Branca, co-executor of the estate said: "Having attended Cirque du Soleil performances with Michael, I know he was a huge fan.

"We are excited to be partners with Cirque du Soleil to give Michael's fans a truly unique way to hear, see and feel Michael's music."

The deal between Michael's estate and the troupe will see each own 50 per cent of the profits from the production - which is expected to feature a number of modern circus acts, such as trapeze and fire breathing, interpreted to the backdrop of the 'King Of Pop's' music. It is also expected the performers will be dressed in tribute to the star.

Michael's mother, Katherine, said: "Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way."

Other productions in tribute to musicians developed by Cirque De Soleil include shows in tribute to Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

Thank you so much Lisbeth for posting this petition here. I was hoping that someone who had all of the accurate information would write one up. I'm so glad that someone finally did. I think that it might also be necesary to write one up about the whole conspiracy theory involving Frank Dileo, Randy Phillips etc... I hope that once the petition is submitted to the Atorney General, he can launch an investigation immediatlely. I think this information should also be given to people like Geraldo Rivera & various news stations to make the public aware. There's a video on you tube that I think all MJ fans should watch. I typed the information below. Try to put it together so you can watch it. It's too bad that we can put live links on here. It's really sad that Michael knew that they were trying to kill him & he tried to reach out to people, but noone did anything to help him. youtube.com/watch?v=keefdqnhzoe. you tube dot com forward slash watch question mark the letter v equal sign KEEFdQNHZOE
