MICHAEL JACKSON’S GONE, BUT FANS STILL CAN’T GET ENOUGH
“Music has been my outlet, my gift to all the lovers in this world. Through it, my music, I know I will live forever.” – Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson HIStory II, a musical biography of Michael Jackson and the anticipated follow-up to last year’s sold-out live concert tour HIStory, will be staged in theatres across Australia in August/September 2012 with an exclusive Sydney season on FRIDAY 24 AND SATURDAY 25 AUGUST at the State Theatre.
2011 saw the staging of the live production HIStory and triggered a phenomenon rarely witnessed in Australian theatres. Critics praised the production as a thrilling example of live entertainment, however it was the public’s reaction to the production that will go down in history. Online public response erupted with praise for the show and social media buzzed with fascination over the show’s star, Kenny Wizz.
Today, Wizz is known to be the best Michael Jackson Impersonator in the world.
Due to this demand, fans across the country have called for the show’s return, however they can think again, according to producers, if they are expecting the same show!
Like MJ, the show has reinvented itself. HIStory II brings to the stage a level of production that will exceed all expectations. The show will also feature the addition of new songs, dances and ground-breaking moments.
The tour is an opportunity for Jackson fans to witness a concert they may never have experienced in their lifetime, or to relive memories they were lucky enough to make.
Repeatedly described as a musical juggernaut, Jackson’s influence on popular culture and music is virtually unparalleled. Beside his inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jackson held thirteen Grammy awards and twenty-six American Music Awards including ‘Artist of the Century’.
Three years after the King of Pop’s death his popularity has reached epic proportions. This musical biography will take fans right back to the Jackson 5 era before continuing on a thrilling journey to the current decade with over twenty songs performed live by Kenny Wizz.
Wizz was just twenty when MJ’s career exploded with the release of the pivotal album ‘Thriller’. During that time, Wizz’s strong resemblance to Jackson heralded the start of a long career as a conduit for Jackson music. His regular performances in Atlantic City gratified audiences and allowed him to perfect his act. After tours in Europe and Asia, Wizz settled in Las Vegas where his show was signed for eleven years at the Riviera Hotel and Casino.
Together with a live band of talented musicians, fully choreographed dancers, authentic costumes and the kind of high production values that can only be done justice in a theatre, HIStory II is the recreation of what fans want but can never again see – Michael Jackson LIVE in concert.
