It seems eerie yet fitting that the Los Angeles stop of Cirque du Soleil's MICHAEL JACKSON: THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR took place over the weekend at none other than the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It is, after all, the very same venue where Jackson held rehearsals for his planned 2009 World Tour 'This Is It' before passing away rather suddenly in June of that year. Days later, the venue then also served as host to the pop star's public memorial service watched by millions around the world on live television. So to see this extravagant, dance-heavy, visually-arresting tribute to the King of Pop here makes absolute perfect sense.
