`Cirque Du Solieil` show in honour of MJ

London: More than a year after pop icon Michael Jackson`s tragic death, the legendary star will be getting his own `Cirque Du Solieil` show - a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment.

Taking cue from The Beatles, whose "Cirque Show Love" has been an enormous success in Las Vegas, Jackson`s "The Immortal World Tour" will open in Canada next October.

The show, which is a tribute to the king of pop, will feature songs and choreography by Michael Jackson, who died June 25 last year.

It will combine Jackson`s music and choreography with the signature acrobatics of the popular circus troupe.

Touring 27 American and Canadian cities, the production will be directed by Jamie King a choreographer and stage director, who was also a backing dancer for Jackson`s "Dangerous" tour.

"Everything Michael. Michael`s love of fairy tale, his love of magic and theatricality, his love of music, his love of animals, his love of showmanship," a website quoted King as saying about the show.
