Michael Jackson might also be getting the Cirque du Soleil treatment.


Though he is gone, the King of Pop lives on in his music and the Canadian-based performance group is “heavily courting” the late singer’s estate with an “astronomical” amount of money in hopes of creating a Las Vegas-style show based on Jackson’s timeless classics.

According to a scoop from Showbiz411, Cirque producers are confident that a Jackson-inspired production would have the same success as “Love,” the Beatles-themed show, which is currently heating up the Vegas strip at the Mirage Hotel & Casino.

Cirque du Soleil is currently hard at work on a show inspired by the King of Rock n’ Roll; “Viva Elvis” is scheduled to open at the ARIA Hotel in Las Vegas next month.
