After an awesome dinner at the Wazee Supper Club (great pizza), Erin and her family, who were also in the know about the surprise, walked over to the Pepsi Center (where the Nuggets play). After walking in, I see no signs, no programs — no clue whatsoever to what we were seeing. Once we found our seats, Erin broke the news to me: Cirque du Soleil: Michael Jackson the Immortal World Tour!
I was ECSTATIC! What an awesome surprise. I love Michael Jackson's music and of course his dancing. The show goes through the music career of MJ, starting with the Jackson 5, and then all of his big hits. There were also some deep tracks included. My favorite performance was a tossup between Human Nature and Billy Jean. In both performances, the dancers (acrobats?) wore outfits that had mini LED lights outlined around their entire body. Once all of the lights went out, all you saw were these outlines of people in multicolor LED light. For Billy Jean, you could clearly see MJ's original choreography. For Human Nature, the lights weren't outlines of the body, but more scattered around the entire body and very artistic. I can't describe how awesome it was, so when the tour comes to your hometown, go see it!
