Cirque Du Soleil announces new `Michael Jackson themed show` Los Angeles: The long-rumoured Cirque Du Soleil show based on the music of late King of Pop Michael Jackson has been formally announced.

The show- Michael Jackson ONE, which will premiere on June 29 at Las Vegas`s Mandalay Bay, will be of 90 minutes duration and will feature more than 60 dancers and aerialists performing to Jackson`s best known music, reported People magazine.

According to the executives, the show will be different from the current Cirque Du Soleil show Immortal, which features the `Dangerous` singer`s music.
