When one thinks of the term “Superstar” a few names come to mind; it’s is more than some A-list celebrity, it’s more than an artist with number one hits, it’s a person who has done things that no other person has been able to do before, and quite possibility created a path that no one will be able to follow after. One such person is Michael Jackson.
MJ Live! at the Rio in Las Vegas captures the spirit of the famed superstar. It’s a high energy performance that is non-stop for 56 minutes, and has you dancing in your seat to many of Michael’s hits and a few of his deep cuts too. I had the privilege of sitting in Golden Circle Seating, aka front row center for this adrenalin rushing performance; there were costume changes, background dancers, screen shows, and guitar solos. “Michael” did all of his mind-blowing moves, including the “moon walk”, the “lean”, high leaps over railings and so much more. One of the highlights was when the dancers came into the audience and danced with a super cute kid, who, might I add, had some moves of his own! I don’t want to say too much more, as in I don’t want to give anything away, but there is a reason that MJ Live! is the number one Michael Jackson tribute show in the world.
I got a chance to chat with some of the cast afterwards, and I was amazed by how grateful and humble they were. An inspiring team if I’ve ever met one: truly wonderful people putting on a truly wonderful show. If you are in Las Vegas and you are looking to be entertained I highly suggest making your way to the Rio and see the show!
