......anddd i was just thinking, if the memorial and the tribute in vienna are broadcasted, why not this?? all of his fans should have a right to be a part of things like this. Correct me if I'm wrong but i haven't heard anything about this being on tv. Or at least being taped for future purchase. I really don't want to just see highlights on the news

i would go if i lived near there. but i live in england:(

if i could go i would pay the 500 for the VIP!

LAS VEGAS – July 23, 2009 – For one performance only, Las Vegas’ top entertainers will come together for a special performance Las Vegas Celebrates the Music of Michael Jackson on Saturday, August 29, 2009, at 3 p.m.

In this multi-artist production celebrating the many hits of The King of Pop, entertainers including cast members of Jersey Boys, Lion King, Peepshow and Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular will perform the hits of the Jackson songbook, all in celebration of what would have been the A’s 51st birthday. This unique show will also include video montages throughout from those who knew Michael or were inspired by his work. The multi-faceted acts will be backed by a 10-piece band comprised of musicians led by Las Vegas’ own Joey Melotti. Additional performers, including many Vegas headliners, and event details will be announced in coming weeks.

This special event will commemorate and celebrate Jackson’s life while raising funds to help kids across the U.S. and right here in Nevada keep music alive in the schools. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales of this event will benefit Music Education programming in Clark County Public Schools.

“I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the person who inspired me and a whole generation of performers. This event helps keep the music of Michael Jackson alive, while raising money to make sure music education stays alive in schools in our community,” said Host and Co-producer Erich Bergen.*
