Cirque du Soleil's newest show in Las Vegas, Michael Jackson ONE, is part tribute, part acrobatic performance, part dance show and all around outstanding. The show features a number of Michael Jackson's best known songs, and together they tell the story of his legacy while also doing justice to the Cirque du Soleil component.
Highlights of the show include a hologram of the King of Pop sharing the stage with other dancers, a slack line routine and several performers dancing on the walls in lit-up outfits. Though people who are not fans of Michael Jackson have been hesitant to see the show, fans and non-fans alike seem to be impressed with it.

Best Shows in Las Vegas: Michael Jackson ONE
For Michael Jackson fans this is the ONE musical you have to see in Las Vegas (like what I did there?!). Michael Jackson ONE revives the spirt of the King of Pop through his music and Cirque du Soleil’s amazing cast of performers and dancers who come together in a show that has heart and may even leave you in tears.
Based around four misfits finding their way into Jackson’s music world through some of his most iconic costume pieces – the shoes, the glasses, the hat and of course the glove – the show takes your through some of his biggest hits and even a few surprises along the way in only a way that Cirque could do.
The show is suitable for all ages and I recommend that you come early for the pre-show performance as characters roam the theatre. Be sure to stay for the finale, there’s a surprise that I’m sure all M.J. fans will LOVE!
