My best friend Jon over at The Stuff I'm Into invited me to the Cirque du Soleil: Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour last night. His boyfriend couldn't make it because of a business trip, so I had the pleasure of being his date for the night along with a couple of his friends.
This was my first Cirque du Soleil I've ever been too. I always wanted to go to one, but never did. And now... I want to learn gymnastics, take muscle relaxers to improve my flexibility, wear shiny outfits, and then run off to the circus. I was expecting more Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon type of acrobatics though, but it made sense that there was more dancing being a Michael Jackson tribute and all. You can't have a tribute to the King of Pop without dancing, rigghhhtt?
So Jon mentioned that he bought the tickets in 2010, shortly after MJ passed away in 2009. 2 years later, and he finally got to see the show. Oh damn. I don't remember the wait list for a Hermès Birkin bag even being that long. But you can totally see the 2 years worth of production in the show. Costumes, lighting, stunts and all.
My favorite was the Scream bit with Janet Jackson. Actually, the entire show was to awesome to have just one favorite part. Now excuse me as I waste an entire day off laying in bed YouTubing Michael Jackson's entire catalog. Who's bad?
