Michael Jackson Concert

After seeing the Beatles in concert last spring, it was only a matter of time before I got around to seeing Michael Jackson too. Impressive, right? Okay, so they've all been impersonators, but that's not to say that they haven't been incredibly entertaining shows. This one by Vegas performer, Kenny Wizz, was no exception. His Michael Jackson was spot on all around. From the singing to the dancing, it really was a convincing act and we had an absolute blast pretending it was the real deal.

With the unexpected fun my sister and I had at the Beatles show in June, we thought it would be fun to do something like that again. At Christmas I saw an ad and decided to get tickets for the April 5 show at the Esplanade as a present for her. We're both big MJ fans and have a lot of memories listening to his music growing up, so there was no shortage of enthusiasm when it came time for the concert. 

I joked last year about the crazy lady we sat next to, but this year I actually went to the show with her. I'm still not sure if my sister realized it wasn't actually Michael Jackson. She screamed and danced, and we both sang along to every song. You were also allowed to snap pictures, so I got some awesome shots of the concert. No question, we made the most of the show and quoted South Park's Mr. Jefferson more times than I can remember. It was a brilliant way to catch up, and clearly, a great time!
