“But, Peter, how do we get to Never Land?”

…with Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour by Cirque du Soleil, of course!

In 2009, the music world lost an icon like no other.  Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, died of cardiac arrest at the young age of 50.  It happened during the production of his comeback/farewell tour, This Is It.  Aside from the footage filmed during rehearsals, the world lost its final chance to see the icon in action.  Cirque du Soleil has given us the chance to experience the presence of greatness once again.

Coming to the Tampa Bay Times Forum, May 20 & 21, 2014, for two shows, Michael will come back to life through a magical spectacle that only Cirque can recreate.  Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour has become one of the top 10 grossing music tours of all time.  Since its world premiere in Montreal in October 2011, this electrifying production has thrilled audiences across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
