My CBSLA.com coverage of MJ as the spectacle OC and heads to the Staples Center. … If you’re Cirque du Soleil and going to pay tribute to Michael Jackson, you’re going to do it in a big, Bad way. The show visits Los Angeles this weekend.
Blame it on the boogie, chalk it up to Jackson dying too soon, or Cirque du Soleil’s wild interpretation of all things — whatever the case, THE IMMORTAL World Tour all came together Tuesday night at the Honda Center as the entertainment spectacle hit Orange County.
The almost sold-out show got a standing ovation from the 9,000 people in attendance. One look around and you could almost see fans’ mental flashbacks of their Michael memories: roller skating to “Billie Jean” with the disco ball spinning, dancing at a concert, practicing the moonwalk and so on. That nostalgia and missing of MJ made the show what it was: almost therapeutic perhaps, as showgoers celebrated the only way they knew how.
