It was a riveting fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that brought Michael Jackson’s powerful music and lyrics to life at the Amway Center.  Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour celebrated the King of Pop’s artistry and signature moves, commemorating his inspirational music for generations to come.

Michael Jackson has once again been immortalized as part of Amway Center history by setting a new record as highest-grossing event, $2,217,575, previously held by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®.  Over the two-day run, February 28 & 29, 2012, the Amway Center hosted 20,449 guests and was transformed into a visual spectacle like no other.

Cirque du Soleil is world renowned for their superior, artistic entertainment.  They never cease to amaze audiences; constantly pushing the limits of the imagination and creativity,” said Allen Johnson, executive director of Orlando Venues.  “This show is yet another example of the premium entertainment the Amway Center brings to Central Florida.”
