LV Jackson Tribute


For one performance only, Las Vegas’ top entertainers will come together for a special performance Las Vegas Celebrates the Music of Michael Jackson on Saturday, August 29, 2009, at 3 p.m.

“Las Vegas Celebrates Michael Jackson” takes place at the Pearl at the Palms the day of what would have been Jackson’s 51st birthday.

Tickets for the show, which range from $39-$129, go on sale Saturday, July 25 at noon.

A VIP package, which includes VIP seating, access to the afterparty with the cast, a gift bag and limited-edition autographed poster, is available for $504.

“I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to the person who inspired me and a whole generation of performers,” said Erich Bergen, star of the Palazzo’s Jersey Boys and co-producer of the show. “This event helps keep the music of Michael Jackson alive, while raising money to make sure music education stays alive in the schools of our community.”

Jackson had been a longtime supporter of music education in schools. 100 percent of the proceeds from the tribute goes to music education programs in Clark County schools.

The King of Pop’s songbook will be performed by cast members of the Las Vegas productions of Jersey Boys, The Lion King, Peepshow and Phantom—The Las Vegas Spectacular. In addition, the show will contain video montages from those who knew Jackson or were inspired by his work.  The acts will be backed by a 10-piece orchestra under the direction of Vegas’ own Joey Melotti.

Look for additional performers and details to be announced in the coming weeks.

“Las Vegas Celebrates Michael Jackson,” August 29 at 3 p.m., $29-$504 (VIP). (702) 942-6888.
