For the first item of Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour, I was prepared to be disappointed. It appears to be going to be a fairly conventional concert, albeit a good one - with good quality dancing and aerials.
Do not go home. While it doesn't quite start with a whimper, this show grows exponentially with each number, so that it becomes overwhelmingly stunning.
The choreography is outstanding - tightly executed, it is inspired by the original Michael Jackson numbers. This show has huge appeal for dance fans.
