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.

It's a blessing, a sign if you will? It's good to see that Michael has not forgotten or abandon his loyal, trusted fans. I believe he is speaking to us from the great beyond and giving us all the shows he has promised us before his untimely death. Sending us all his love through his music again and again... it's wonderful, it’s magical. How else could one explain this phenomenal experiences? How Michael is rocking us even after death? It's never been done before... I love you so much Michael Jackson, you have always rocked my world since the day I first heard his beautiful voice and saw your magnificent dancing. God Bless Michael Joseph Jackson 4ever!

And why are we celebrating a child molester? I think it's disgusting that this person, not even a man, can diddle little boys and everyone looked the other way because he was musically talented. Any other male who did this would be in jail and locked up for 30 years.

It's time we stop celebrating child molesters and forget about this freak who wanted to be white and have little boys sleep in his bed.

@38 - really, it is very sad, what do you base your opinion on? gossip or do you site tabloid articles? Or do you just like anonymous internet bullying? If you bothered with any of the actual facts, you would realize that Michael was the victim of extortion. Read the trial transcripts, they are online. The Arvisos are convicted felons. Ask JC Penny, they have been a victim of their false allegations too. The Chandler boy sued his father for early emancipation; same said father attacked his son and hit him with a blunt object. Chandler was asked by the prosecution to testify at the 2005 trial and had the opportunity to put Michael away but instead, Chandler flatly refused to testify against Michael. The insurance company paid the 93 settlement against Michael's wishes. Settling was cheaper than paying out all those venues for canceling his world tour to if he wanted to fight and go to court. No smoke, no fire, just a business decision by an insurance company.

Get some facts and drop the attempts at wit, that goes for all you little internet bullies. You only make yourself look both ignorant and foolish.
