「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.

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.
