The widely acclaimed Michael Jackson HIStory ll Show, a musical biography of Michael Jackson’s life, is a brand new production that has recently taken New Zealand by storm. The show, starring Kenny Wizz, will be staged at the Artscape Opera House in Cape Town from 10 to 28 October 2012.
Together with a live band of talented musicians, fully choreographed dancers, authentic costumes and high production values, HIStory II brings fans what they want but can never again see – a Michael Jackson concert.The production takes fans right back to the Jackson 5 era and through a thrilling journey to the current decade. Hit after hit tells the story of one of the greatest pop icons the world has ever known and features over twenty songs performed live by Kenny Wizz, the celebrated Las Vegas performer. The concert’s success is the product of Wizz’s dedication to championing the genius of Michael Jackson, and HIStory is the result of more than two decades perfecting the art of sharing MJ.Influence on music is unparalled
Michael Jackson, repeatedly described as a musical juggernaut, had an influence on popular culture and music that remains virtually unparalleled. Beside his inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jackson held 13 Grammy awards and 26 American Music Awards including Artist of the Century.
His roll of accolades, however, is almost too massive to mention, and for most the focus weighs more heavily on the music Jackson has shared since the 1960s. Songs such as ABC, Ben, Smooth Criminal, Beat It and many more will be performed on the upcoming HIStory tour, providing a flawless live experience that might otherwise be unattainable.
