The show, called “Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour,” delivered its first performance Sunday night in Montreal, and captured the essence and spirit of the departed King of Pop so much so that the Jackson family has become very emotional.
“They’re totally happy with it. Michael’s mother and his kids were in the audience, and his brother came backstage. They were all so happy and so touched,” the shows creative director, Chantal Tremblay, told The Huffington Post.
Jackson’s mother, Katherine, praised the crew after the show.
“I really enjoyed it. It’s fantastic,” Jackson said. “I had heard about it from my oldest son Jackie. He came to see it and he told me how amazing it was. I was looking for something amazing, but I found something far better. And I really enjoyed it, and it captured Michael very well. It was kind of emotional for me but … it was very, very good. Done very, very well.” Read More
