Cirque du Soleil, the Canadian entertainment company part owned by the Dubai government, will stage a new show in the emirate based on the life and music of deceased American pop icon Michael Jackson.
Held in the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena, the tour is scheduled to coincide with the Dubai shopping festival with 21 shows starting on December 30 at 8pm and running through the January 1-14.
Omar Saab, commercial director of event organisers Duvent Events Management, said: “Cirque du Soleil is a global phenomenon with a multitude of fans in this region. The company has chosen to return to Dubai in particular, because of the wide potential the city offers as a hotspot for tourists who wish to getaway to the Middle East. This time around, their performance is positively bigger and better, and promises to be unlike anything they have brought to the audiences here.”
The firm has also managed music concerts including the closing concert ceremony at the Dubai World Cup 2013, featuring the live appearance and performance by British Grammy award-winning soul and R&B singer-songwriter, Seal.
Written and directed by Jamie King, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL Dubai tickets are now available online at ticketmaster and start at $80.
