    Default HIStory Statue removed from Las Vegas

    You all know that the original HIStory Statue used in the Teaser of the album has been on display at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, the same hotel holding Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE.

    The statue has been removed from the lobby. When asked, the hotel stated that the statue has been removed for the summer only.

    We are awaiting for more information from the Mandalay Bay and Estate to comment.

    Alicia responded :
    "The statue was not a permanent installations (nor was it ever intended as such.) The hotel (and many others) switch out their lobby displays from time to time and have elected to install a summer-themed display for the time being. It never hurts though to let the staffers you’re speaking with know that you (and their other customers) would like it back!"

    Just phoned Mandalay to inquire on the situation; Was told the statue will be removed from display 'until further notice' and that it was a 'corporate decision' that couldn't be discussed in any further depth. Also, no plans for it to be replaced for the birthday celebration.
    I think it's time for MJ ONE to do a world tour......

    I'm not so into those musical shows, but I think this show need to go outside the US to see how much love the people still have for MJ.
    For example, the same HIStory statue that has been removed from Las Vegas, has been unveiled in Milan (Italy) a couple of days before the 10th anniversary of MJ's death.
    His own country betrayed him so many times that it doesn't deserve his legacy.

    Hopefully it's just for the summer. if we don't see it back after the summer or MJ birthday then we need to be concern.

    I'll be there in November, so I'll at least be able to return and report then.

    Hello again! Sorry to take forever to post about this; I just got back really late last night. Unfortunately, the statue is not back, and right now there isn't anything in its place. I asked an employee at the MJ One Boutique to see if she knew anything about it, but she just said she didn't know when or if it would be back. I will say, though, that there were a ton of people seeing the show (and I was at the early show; at a lot of Vegas shows, the later one tends to have a bigger audience) and buying stuff from the shop.

    I took some videos inside the shop that I plan to post later to show you all the current stuff that's available. Since I remember people talking about the figurines (they had plenty of the shoes and jacket, plus some of the Smooth Criminal lean) and snow globes, I made sure to include those in the video to show that they still have plenty available. It was an awesome time!!

    I'm looking forward to those videos too, and I hope that statue is back in its place very soon! If the show is still running then the statute won't be gone forever.
