「マイケル・ジャクソン・イモータル・ワールドツアー」を12月25日、ベガスのマンダレイベイ・ホテルで観ました。27日までラスベガスで開催。その後フェニックス、アイダホ、サクラメント、サンホゼ、サンディエゴ、アナハイム、ロスアンゼルス、その他数十都市で8月まで全米ツアーされる予定。 "Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour" was held in Las vegas as a Cirque du Soleil show until Dec. 27, 2011. I watched it on Dec.25, 2011. Then, It will tour Phoenix AZ, Boise, ID, Sacramento, San Jose, San Diego, Anaheim, Los Angeles, and several other cities in USA until August, 2012.
A riveting fusion of visuals with strobe lights, dance, music and fantasy that immerses audiences in Michael’s creative world and literally turns his signature moves upside down, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour unfolds Michael Jackson’s artistry before the eyes of the audience. Aimed at lifelong fans as well as those experiencing Michael’s creative genius for the first time, the show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the King of Pop, celebrating a legacy that continues to transcend generations.
The high, golden gate of Neverland leads us through a fantasy world where an animatronic baby Michael floats through the arena on a hot air balloon, while acrobats dressed in black float through the sky, their bodies illuminated to turn them into constellations. A live band plays with power and guts while the digitized voice of Michael sings along, joined by live backup singers.
Michael Jackson's voice echos, "World's problems today are results of the facts that children have had childhood stolen from them. The magic, wonder, mysteries, and innocence of child's hearts are the seeds of creativity that will heal the world. I really believe that."
終わりの方で、世界の国旗を組み合わせたフラッグを10旗ほど翻す”フラッグセレモニー”が5分ほどあり、最後に、マイケルの歌『Man In The Mirror』が流れショーが終了した。
Towards the end, they did a flag ceremony for about 5 minutes by waving about 10 flags combination designs of flags from the world. Then, Michael's song, "Man In The Mirror" was played, and the show ended.
I was moved by Michael's messages wishing peace on Earth and Human beings. The show was around 1 hour 50 minutes long. Most audience stood up for the standing ovation after the show.
Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil
http://youtu.be/R7lkdFr9-6g cirquedusoleil--Nov 1, 2010 http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/MJImmortal A riveting fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that literally turns Michael Jackson's signature moves upside down, Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour is a pop rock concert that unfolds inside the creative mind of Michael Jackson. The show captures the essence, soul and inspiration of the man, and celebrates the immortality of the King of Pop.
I found a photo of Taku Hirano, percussionist in the program. As I searched Internet, he was born in Osaka, Japan. His father transferred him and his family to Fresno, California, where he grew up. It seems he studied Classic music until he was 17 or 18 years old.
「マイケル・ジャクソン・ワールドツアー」がサークル・ド・ソレイユのショーとしてラスベガスで開催中。10月2日、モントリオールを皮切りに、カナダ数都市で開催されたあと、12月3日から12月27日までラスベガス。その後フェニックス、アイダホ、サクラメント、サンホゼ、サンディエゴ、アナハイム、ロスアンゼルス、その他の都市で8月まで全米ツアーされる予定。 "Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour" is being held in Las vegas as a Cirque du Soleil show now. Its world premiere started in Montreal, Canada, on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2011. It toured several cities in Canada, and it's being shown at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Casino from Dec. 3 to 27, 2011. It will tour Phoenix AZ, Boise, ID, Sacramento, San Jose, San Diego, Anaheim, Los Angeles, and several other cities in USA until August, 2012.
I'm traveling to Las Vegas from Dec.23 to 26. I just bought tickets for Dec.25 7PM show this morning. Daily the shows are from 7 PM and 10PM in Las Vegas. The shows on Dec.24 and Dec.25 10 PM are either sold out or dark.
In Los Angeles, It's performed at Staples Center on Jan.27 (Fri.) through 29 (Sun) from 8 PM.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie with four elder kids were at the Las Vegas show on Saturday, Dec.17, 2011. The youngest twin kids were staying in a hotel room with their nanny.
According to a witness, "They enjoyed the performance and stayed until the very end rather than sneaking out at the curtain close. They joined the crowd during the final standing ovation. It didn’t look as if the cast knew the Hollywood couple was there until they heard the buzz in the audience.
トーレンス市南西コール・メーヤーとアンザ通り近くの今年のイルミネーションです。12月16日写真と動画撮影しました。LAX国際空港から車で南に30分です。 Christmas Lighting@Mayor Drive: I went to a beautifully decorated house near Anza Ave. and Calle Mayor in South West Torrance, CA, about 30 minutes south from Los Angeles airport, on Dec. 16, 2011 and took photos and video clips.
こちらがそこで撮影し編集した動画です。 Here is an edited video clip from there.
There was a "DUI(Driving Under the Influence) Check Point" along Torrance Blvd. that night, little east of Prospect, by closing one lane and making it to 1 lane street. There are many DUI check points during this time of the year, so please be careful.
感謝祭の週末11月26日、セドナ再訪。11月23日から28日までフェニックスで女性ばかりの乗馬・ヨガ合宿中、フェニックスからの日帰り旅行で、片道車で1時間35分ぐらいでした。セドナはアメリカで有数のパワースポット。街全体のエネルギーが違います。「ホーリークロス・チャペル」で撮影した写真を掲載します。 Chapel of The Holy Cross, Sedona: I visited Sedona, AZ on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2011 during Thanksgiving Weekend. It was a 1 day trip, 1 hour 35 minute drive from Phoenix, AZ, where I was staying for a horseback riding and Yoga retreat from Nov. 23 to 28, 2011. Sedona is a well known power spot. The town itself has different energy. I will post photos taken at "Chapel of The Holy Cross".
地球のエネルギーが沸きあがる場所、ボルテックスの岩山に建てたれたチャペルです。 It's a chapel built on a vortex, where energy from the earth flows out.
History--The first conception came to Marguerite Bruswig Staude in 1932 in New York City while observing the newly constructed Empire State Building. When viewed from a certain angle a cross seemed to impose itself through the very core of the structure.
Built on a twin pinnacled spur about 250 feet high, jutting out of a thousand foot red rock wall, "solid as the Rock of Peter" the building of the Chapel was completed in April 1956. Just the physical construction was a physical miracle, overcoming difficult conditions to construct this chapel.

Someone once told the vortex at the chapel was supposed to invoke feelings of gratitude. I found that to be true. I was filled with gratitude and lit a candle for a prayer. There is a donation box to light candles.
チャペルの入り口前から観た景色。大自然は壮大です。 A view from the chapel entrance. The mother nature is splendid.
チャペル前の駐車場からの景色。サボテンの花とセドナの赤岩山を撮影。 A view from the chapel parking lot. Captured blooming Cactus flower and Sedona's Red Rock.
今年の紅葉写真を掲載します。ロス郊外トーレンス市街路樹の紅葉。12月6日と13日に写真と動画を撮影してきました。 "Fall Leaves" are changing colors in Torrance, a suburb of Los Angeles here and there on the tree lined streets. I went to take photos and some video clips on Dec. 6 and 13, 2011.
I thought they were Maple for years, but they were not Maple. They seem to be "Red Gum" trees. I realized it two years ago when pointed out by my readers.
Challenger Street 沿い Prairie Ave.西側で撮影しました。(12-6-2011) I took photos along Challenger Street and west of Prairie Ave.
てんつくマンがLAに来た。12月7日（水）午後7時から10時までトーレンスの都ハイブリッドホテルにてトークライブが開催された。てんつくマンさんのワークショップは、12月15日（木）オレンジ郡で午後1時から9時まで開催予定です。 Tentsukuman came to LA: His talk show was held in Torrance on Dec.7, 2011 from 7 pm to 10 pm.
His workshop will be held in Lake Forest, Orange county, on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2011 from 1 pm to 9 pm.
He talked about why he joined Yoshimoto Kogyo and became a comedian, why he made a movie, "107 + 1 ~Make the Heaven", how he reconsidered about his life after a fatal traffic accident while he was collecting funds to make the movie, how he completed a full marathon every day for 30 days to gain confidence, how he became a street poet who writes messages for other people, and how to change your life for the better while you enjoy it fully. He kept talking 3 hours straight without any intermission.
『すべてはやるか やらないか。 あきらめるか あきらめないか。』
"Everything comes to 'you do it or you don't do it'. Either you give up or you don't give up."
Tentsukuman came to Los Angeles to take Anthony Robbins' 6 day workshop in Palm Dessert being held from Dec. 9th to 14, 2011.
Anthony Robbins was born poor and could not go to college and became a janitor. He thought his favorite occupation is not a janitor. He decided to invest in himself, reducing spending on foods and clothing and took self advancement seminars.
As a result, he became a very successful coach and adviser, his annual bill is over 1 million dollars per a corporation.
He is also famous as a coach of President Bill Clinton when he turned the national budget from loss to surplus in USA.
His talks show ended little after 10 pm. Then, the first 30 people who signed up on that day got "message" on paper. He looks at that person in eyes one by one and gives the message he or she needs the most. My message reservation number was 15.
トークショー後にてんつくマンの書籍やグッズも販売されました。 Tentsukuman's books and goods were sold after the talk show as well.
Those of you who missed Tentsukuman's talk show on December 7, 2011, there is "1 Day Workshop with Tentsukuman" on Thursday, December 15, 2011 from 1 pm to 9 pm in Lake Forest, Orange County. The fee is $100 per person. It will be even powerful, because it's right after Tentsukuman took Anthony Robbin's 6 day workshop.
てんつくマン（軌保博光）の １日ワークショップ in OC Tentsukuman's 1 Day Workshop in OC
「笑い楽しみながら、未来を開くワークショップ」 "Workshop to Create Your Future While Laughing and Enjoying."
Time (日程）: 2011-12-15 (Thu) 1 PM to 9 PM
Place (会場)：Chandra Yoga 9 Orchard Rd., Ste 111, Lake Forest, CA 92830
私へのメッセージ： 「花の美しさを知る人よ。人に届けて、一つ一つの花が今 あなたの力になりたいと 咲いていることを。」 My message: "You know the beauty of flower. Deliver it to other people. Each flower is blooming and trying to help you." てんつくマンさんは、12月7日昼、バシャールさんのチャネリングセッションを受けたそう。
Tentsukuman took Bashar's channeling session on Dec. 7, 2011 as well.
He asked, "What should people in Fukushima do (after having the nuclear power plant accidents) ?"
Bashar answered, "The children between 3 and 5 years old in Fukushima are re-incarnated souls of those who died with atomic bomb attacks ( in Hiroshima and Nagasaki). So, you can ask those children what we should do."
To people in Fukushima, "Please ask your children what we should do. And please let me know what the children said."
The message is similar to what I heard on 11-11-11 during Bashar's channeling session.
"Many people that experienced nuclear radiation damage are the people who died with bombs in the World War II in Japan in past lives. They chose to show 'is this what we prefer? There are natural ways of energy.' "
(My intuition told me there are many souls who died in Hiroshima or Nagasaki atomic bomb attacks in their past lives and chose to reincarnate and die with Nuclear power radiation in the present lives.)
Later on, five of us decided to have a late dinner at "Shisen Ramen" near by. 4 minutes later Tentsukuman and his stuff came to join us. There were 16 of us. Luckily, "Shisen Ramen" had just 16 more seats available for seating.
It was fun having Ramen noodle and Gyoza Dumblings with Tentsukuman and his stuff.
His movie, "107 + 1 ~Make the Heaven, Part I" was completed and screened from 2003. I saw the movie in December 2003 in Los Angeles, when his friend, Hiroshi, came to screen the movies in Los Angeles. But it was my first time meeting Tentsukuman.
