Cirque du Soleil -- Michael Jackson Immortalized

11/3/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cirque du Soleil is unveiling the images that will drive what could be the biggest show under the big top ever -- driven by Michael Jackson's music ... and TMZ got hold of the image that will drive the production.

The world tour is a partnership between the MJ Estate and Cirque -- each sharing 50% of the profits.  It will kick off in the Fall of next year in Canada, and work its way south to the US of A.

The show will end up with a permanent home at the MGM Mirage hotel in Las Vegas -- probably in late 2012. Cirque has already released sketches of what the show will look like.

Cirque is like Starbuck's, there is one on every corner. It used to be special and now there are so many shows it looks like Cirque is the country's answer to the unemployment mess, they will need to hire all the unemployed to staff all their shows.

Looking at the thousands of comments since his death, it appears that when you are a minority, you are guilty by court of public opinion. I know, I know. Michael Jackson, Tiger Woods are going to hell. But Bret Favre, Sean Michaels, John Daly, Colin Montgomerie, Charlie Sheen, Richie Sambora, Jeffrey Jones dont see nearly as many hateful comments. Spare me.

Anything that pisses the haters off is fine by me. They can't stand it when others don't think like them, and they especially don't like it when someone appreciates Michael's talent.

Good for Cirque. Good for Michael!

TMZ Really it bust your bubble when micheal died you watched him on his every minute. yes of course you reported he passed and in some way your are responsible and play a role just like mr. conrad murray, and micheal record company, oprah, dr klien and all the doctors, and some of his so called body guards who allow him to sit there and medicate so that they could all have a check aig or aeg who they are responsible to greed for their pockets to be filled without gettin him help and rehab then letting him get back on the road for a big major tour. Yes micheal dad wasnt always right but who parents is we all make mistake and micheal forgave his dad i believe that the made sure that will was old and micheal stayed medicated so that they could get there hands on his what he had his music and beatles music GREED ALL OF YOU HAVE BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS
DONT BLAME HIS FAMILY REMEMBER NOW THEY WAS KEPT AWAY. YOU GUYS WANT US TO THINK THEY WANTED HIS MONEY AND HIS BROTHER WERE PART OF MAKING MICHEAL TOO IT NOT ALL ABOUT MICHEAL HIS MOTHER MADE HIS CLOTHES HIS DAD GAVE UP THINGS ALSO LEAVE MICHEAL ALONE AND GET A LIFE TMZ AND LEAVE HIS MOTHER AND DAD AND KIDS AND FAMILY ALONE.
