Finally happy to announce I can cross of no. 88 on my 101 in 1001 list. Over 1.5 years ago, when Cirque du Soleil announced they would have a Michael Jackson Immortal tour, I simply jumped to the occasion to purchase tickets. They weren’t cheap, but then again when would I have the chance to see an MJ/Cirque show.
Well on tuesday… the day finally came. Apart from having a sinus infection I was beyond excited. I knew reviews were mixed. Some liked the show, others didn’t… but figured I would make my own decision. I agree with the critics. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t as great as it could of been. I wasn’t wowed by the Cirque performers and what we saw has been done. I really thought that having MJ themed something would of been spectacular just like he was… but alas, that wasn’t the case.
Was I happy I went, sure! but having seen many Cirque shows (seeing they were started here in MTL in 1984) it wasn’t their best but on the upside I was able to take a snap shot of Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque while I was there.
Did you see the show? Were you disappointed too?
