    The music of Michael Jackson is being developed into a Cirque du Soleil show that will premiere in 2011 in Las Vegas.

    According to Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, Jackson was a fan of Cirque and they began talks back in 2004 about the possibility of incorporating MJ's music into an arena show.

    "We are honored and thrilled to be in partnership with the ultimate and most important record selling artist of all time. This association between two international entertainment brands promises to deliver to fans of both Michael and Cirque du Soleil unique artistic experiences," Lamarre says.

    Lamarre also tells ET that the Jackson family will be involved in the creation of the Michael Jackson projects, which will include an arena-touring show in which fans will experience the excitement of a Michael Jackson concert, which will debut in Fall 2011 in conjunction with the MGM Mirage. There will also be a Las Vegas permanent show, also in partnership with the MGM Mirage, that will open in late 2012.

    "Our family is thrilled that Cirque du Soleil will pay tribute to my son in such an important way," Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, commented.

    The estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil will each own 50 percent of each Michael Jackson project.
