ok, so have the organisers lost sight of the meaning of "world tour"? cos, contrary to ppl there beliefs, America is not the whole world!!
When (if at all) are they announcing UK dates? I'm assuming it will be visiting the o2, as all Michael releated things seem to head there now, even though he only visited the place like, once.

it tours north america for two years first before going to the rest of the world. n.american tickets went on sale about a year b4 the first dates.so it will prob be a while b4 any go on sale

unfortunatly it will no doubt end up at the 02 which will be vomit inducing. no way id set foot anywhere near that venue. even more so to see this. talk about a kick in the stomach

^^What wrong with the o2?? I mean, it annoys me how much Michael stuff they seem to be involved in now, as if they played a huge part in his career or something, but its a sick venue!! That said though, i didn't really like the fan day there, it was badly organised and lacked decent performers and video footage=(
I'd much prefer they do it at Wembley Arena, but the o2 has much more up-to-date technology.

Welcome to the feeling of people in the USA during the Dangerous and HIStory world tours.

So I need some help...I'm trying to buy a ticket for the April 3rd 2012 show in NY at Madison Square Garden, however, the only available tickets are ones that start in row 100 and go up. Should I get a ticket now or wait till it gets closer to the date and hope they add another NY show?

Cirque expands Michael Jackson tour dates — more Las Vegas shows?

Cirque du Soleil and Michael Jackson's Immortal.
Photo: Cirque du Soleil

Rehearsals are underway for the Oct. 2 world premiere in Montreal of the Michael Jackson show Immortal from Cirque du Soleil. The first U.S. performance is in Detroit on Oct. 15. The theatrical company has now hit the 30-city mark for the tour, with dates extended to July 6, 2012, and more cities and venues being added -- and to the worldwide tour that will follow.
Interestingly, the Las Vegas dates -- Dec. 3-11 at Mandalay Bay Events Center twice nightly -- also are likely to be extended, I have learned. Cirque has kept dates open until a Dec. 30 series in Phoenix so that the moment tickets are sold out here, the additional Las Vegas dates can be added. Currently, the U.S. tour ends in Atlanta on June 29, 2012, before returning to Montreal on July 6 in advance of the overseas trips.

Award-winning director and choreographer Jamie King is now in Montreal full time overseeing the rehearsals with Creation Director Chantal Tremblay, who worked on the original Cirque Las Vegas show Mystere at Treasure Island and then in 2006 as the creation director for The Beatles Love at The Mirage.
Jamie was Madonna’s creative director for 12 years and directed her Confessions (2006) and Sticky & Sweet (2008) world tours. Most recently, he directed Caesars Palace headliner Celine Dion’s Taking Chances World Tour and Rihanna’s Last Girl on Earth world tour.
I am reliably told that everything in this current preliminary timeline is on schedule and running smoothly without delays or production difficulties. Ticket sales have exceeded all projections at this early date, and everybody connected with the production plans is “very happy with its development and progress.”
Robin Leach has been a journalist for more than 50 years and has spent the past decade giving readers the inside scoop on Las Vegas, the world’s premier platinum playground.

What wrong with the o2??
nothing wrong with it per say but if you dont get the issue some have with going there to see this show when they should have been going there to actually see mj in the flesh then.... its pretty obvious. unfortunatly the 02 is the only decent modern arena in london so no doubt it will end up there ontop of the xtra promo it will get from the irony of the situation. if i do go see the show ill go to dublin/europe or somewhere nearer if its shown outside of london.i for one dont want to step foot in the 02 when the only other times i went there was for the press conference in march and what should have been opening night for the vigil.

Cirque du Soleil doesn't normally perform at arenas or stadiums. They always put up their own tents. I mean the touring shows of course, not the ones with Las Vegas residency.

That is VERY TRUE Jmie.

But in this case, I think they might bypass tents because the tour begin in October, when the cold weather starts.

They brought their show "Corteo" to Moscow in November/December and it was still in tents despite the cold weather. They have heating equipment, so cold weather is not a problem.

I think they will bypass tents during the US leg of the tour since there'll be only a couple of shows per city. But when they bring it to Europe, if they spend a month or two in each city, they'll probably put up tents.

Are there any shows in NYC in August? I can't find. Does anyone know? (or is it too early?)
