Attention MJ Fans! There will be a permanent Michael Jackson production at Mandalay Bay beginning in 2013. In addition, the Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour will stop at the Mandalay Bay for an extended run beginning December 3 and will include the first ever Estate-authorized Michael Jackson Fan Fest!
THE MICHAEL JACKSON FAN FEST
To kick-off the tour stop in Las Vegas, fans will have the chance to experience the legacy of Michael Jackson in a whole new way during the first Michael Jackson Fan Fest taking place for a limited time only at Mandalay Bay beginning December 3, 2011. This experience is expected to include a wide variety of elements such as an up-close look at Michael Jackson memorabilia, items from Neverland Ranch, photo opportunities in recreated sets from historic Michael Jackson videos, a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour, a main stage featuring contests, Q&A sessions with members of the creative team from Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour as well as other associates of Michael Jackson, giveaways and more. In addition, the Fan Fest will give attendees the chance to compete against one another in contests centered around the recently released UBISOFT video game “Michael Jackson The Experience.”
An interactive, engaging, and immersive design will create a larger-than-life environment for all Fan Fest goers and promises to be a unique event. The Fan Fest will be open for 4 hours before Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour shows on December 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, and 14 in Mandalay Bay’s Bayside Exhibit Halls. In the case of two-show nights, the Fan Fest will have two sessions open to the public at separate starting times. Ticket and session information will be announced in the coming weeks and www.MichaelJacksonFanFest.com will offer up-to-the-minute updates on the Fan Fest.
MICHAEL JACKSON ALL ACCESS
Mandalay Bay also will be the permanent home of a creative collaboration from The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil aimed at giving fans a unique encounter with Michael’s artistic genius, sense of wonder and humanitarian spirit. Just as Michael Jackson The IMMORTAL World Tour and the newly announced permanent show at Mandalay Bay will open the eyes and ears of the world to experiencing Michael’s music in a whole new way, this permanent exhibit will take fans, new and old, on a journey to the next level by giving them the opportunity to access Michael Jackson – the consummate performer, the philanthropist and the person – in entirely new ways, in part using the most state-of-the-art interactive technology. This experience is expected to spark memories, inspire hope and help us discover new things about Michael and ourselves, engaging minds and inspiring hearts.
MICHAEL JACKSON LOUNGE
The Michael Jackson Estate and Cirque du Soleil will also create the Michael Jackson Lounge – a space that will bring to life Michael’s music in an atmosphere celebrating his career and legacy.
