Thanks so much for all of your continued support of Michael, the Estate, and all of us on this end!
Clearly, there’s been lots of talk on the Internet about songs that are, and are not, in the upcoming Cirque show, and we wanted to update you on what is actually happening:
As fans in Montreal were told, several songs they [heard] in Montreal will not end up in the show, and several that they did not see will be in the show [when the show opens] October 2. As the Estate and Cirque stressed to everyone during their visit, this is very much a work-in-progress and there continue to be changes made to all aspects of the show, not only the music.
There are various reasons for these changes – some creative, some because of clearance issues and other reasons. For example, as a result of the rehearsals that have taken place since the fans’ visit, "Cry," "Breaking News," "Monster" (though a portion of 50 Cent’s rap may be used), and "Off The Wall" are now no longer in the show. "Man In The Mirror" has moved, and "Threatened" has been added, as has an additional use of "Bad." Some of the routines seen in Montreal have also been changed, including, for example, "Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’." And more changes are expected.
We wanted you to have this inside info right from the source!
