'Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour' Song List Update
September 20, 2011Thanks 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...

From The Estate of Michael Jackson Regarding Recent Tabloid Stories
We know many fans have been upset by recent tabloid stories in the UK about Michael. In his song, "Tabloid Junkie" Michael Jackson sings: Just because you read it in a magazine or see it on a TV screen doesn't make it factual.  Sadly, we were recently reminded of just how prophetic Michael's lyrics were when these disgraceful, stale and discredited stories more than two decades old were published making unfounded allegations about Michael and so called FBI "files." It should be no surprise that one of the authors of this rehash has a long history of writing tabloid articles about Michael. It also should be noted that he formerly was a top editor at a scandal-ridden British tabloid that folded following revelations that the phones of celebrities, public figures and even a child murder victim were illegally hacked. Even more unseemingly was one press account in which the tabloid's source was identified as a former investigator whose license was revoked and who also...
