Michael Jackson The Mirror'Michael Jackson The Mirror'. 05-03-'18

The Adelaide Fringe is the world’s second-largest annual arts festival and the largest in the Southern Hemisphere, held in the South Australian capital of Adelaide. For 31 days and nights during February and March, it features more than 5,000 artists from around Australia and the world, featuring world premieres, hit shows and new artists. Over 1100 events are staged in pop-up venues in parks, warehouses, laneways and disused buildings as well as established venues such as theatres, hotels, bars, pubs, art galleries and cafes. This year, in the Adelaide Fringe 2018, Michael Jackson was added to the festivities for the first time with a world premiere.

With four sold out shows the audience were able to immerse themselves in a journey mirroring the dynamic showmanship of Michael Jackson with 'The Mirror' show.

The show was presented by three talented Adelaide individuals, Lauren Pisaniello, Ghita Prey, and Joshua Dal Santo the award winning MJ Tribute Artist who played Michael.

Joshua brought to Adelaide, South Australia some MJ magic. With a cast of brilliant dancers in massive dance pieces, re-telling compelling signature moments and moves, the show took you back to Michael’s music videos. It brought to life on-stage the 1930’s gangster style lounge in ‘Smooth Criminal’ – The reflection of ‘Man In the Mirror’ – Anti-gravity leans, moonwalking and everything MJ to an in-your-face graveyard horror of ‘Thriller,’ plus the inclusion of an entire choir, reflecting Michael’s diversity, his biggest hits and moving ballads. Pure entertainment for the young, the old and everything in between, MJ style.

'Michael Jackson The Mirror' show was held at the Adelaide Fringe at The Octagon Stage at Glutony and hopefully it will return to the Adelaide Fringe again next year to delight MJ fans once more.

Madonna Recalls Her 'Best Date Ever' With Michael Jackson At The Oscars. 04-03-'18

In 1991, pop royalty Madonna and Michael Jackson made headlines for showing up to the Oscars together. Madonna had been asked to perform the Oscar-nominated song "Sooner or Later," written by Stephen Sondheim for the film Dick Tracy, and she invited the King of Pop as her date.

In an interview at the time, Madonna explained: "Michael was like, 'Well who are you gonna go with?' I looked at him and said, 'I don't know. You wanna go?' And he said, 'Yeah, that'd be great.'" She teased, "And then, yes, he took me home. You wanna know what happened after that? I'm not gonna tell you." (We do know they did at least kiss, at some point, thanks to her episode of Carpool Karaoke.)

Flash forward to 2018: Madonna is now looking back at that night as her "best date ever."

The singer posted a photo of the pair on the Oscars red carpet on social media Sunday (March 4), also using the hashtags #epic and #fun to describe the special evening they shared more than two decades ago.

Making the night even better, "Sooner or Later" won the Oscar for best original song at the Academy Awards that year.

Neverland Ranch TrainMichael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch Train Is Coming To Auction. 02-03-'18

Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch (now named Sycamore Valley Ranch) has sat on the market for almost three years without a buyer. The contents that once filled the 2,700-acre property, in contrast, have been more fortunate.

Even before his death in 2009, Jackson had slowly begun to sell the estate’s decorations, furniture, dozens of bronze statues, and hundreds of toys and arcade games, both privately and (in an abortive attempt) at auction.

One such item was an electric train set, custom-made in Germany, which Jackson originally purchased for his children to ride. (This set should not be confused with the life-size train that ran throughout much of the ranch.)

“It went around a tree,” says Brigitte Kruse, owner of GWS Auctions Inc. in Agoura Hills, northwest of Los Angeles. “I’d say there are about 40 feet of track,” on which the train and its four cars would run round in circles. Each car fits two children—or one fun-loving adult.

The train was purchased in either 2008 or 2009, Kruse says, by a devoted Jackson fan. “He’s been collecting Michael Jackson memorabilia since he was 5 years old. Now he’s in his mid-30's.”

The collector, she says, has a deep nostalgia for childhood. “He had a child come from the Netherlands who had autism, and he showed him the collection. He does cool things like that all the time.”

When the train was purchased, its new owner put it directly into storage. “It hasn’t been touched, or run, ever since,” Kruse says.

Now it’s coming up for auction at GWS with a starting bid of $2,000. The consignor “has health problems, and he wants to exhibit the rest of his collection in a museum,” Kruse says, adding that the sale of this and other Jackson memorabilia from his collection is an attempt to raise the funds to do so.

The Memorabilia Market:

The works are part of GWS’s March 24 Legends of Hollywood & Music Auction, which includes Jackson items such as a Swarovski crystal Billie Jean glove worn during his 1997 'History' tour (starting bid: $2,000), as well as other, more esoteric pieces, like a prescription pill bottle made out to Milton Berle ($25).

While the more personal elements of these items might raise eyebrows, there is, more generally, a thriving market for Hollywood collectibles.

Julien’s Auctions, the Los Angeles-based showcase known for its hardcover catalogs and elaborate exhibition displays, is probably at the forefront of the celebrity memorabilia business. (The auction house was enlisted several years ago with selling the bulk of the Neverland estate privately.)

“Michael Jackson’s collectibility, since his passing, has continued,” says Darren Julien, president and chief executive officer of his namesake auction house. “Asia is a big market, as is Russia. And then there’s obviously the United States.”

Career and Market Highs:

Julien says there’s a direct correlation between each item and Jackson’s career arc; something from his 'Thriller' period would sell at a premium, especially as his estate makes a concerted effort to repromote it every Halloween. “We sold his 'Thriller' jacket for $1.8 million,” Julien says. “And then you look at stage performances—anything he did onstage would be most collectible.”

Jackson had hundreds of crystal-covered gloves, for instance, but one he wore doing the moonwalk during his 'Motown 25 TV Special' performance sold at Julien’s for a record $425,000.

Julien says he expects the train on offer at GWS to far exceed its minimum bid, as does Kruse.

“I’ve heard numbers from $20,000 to $250,000,” she says. “I think with Michael Jackson items, there’s fans, and then there’s everybody else.”

‘Moonwalkers’ – MJ Impersonator Documentary. 01-03-'18

A documentary about Michael Jackson impersonators called ‘Moonwalkers’ has launched on Kickstarter.

‘Moonwalkers’ is a documentary by a BAFTA-winning team following three Michael Jackson tribute artists as they search for fame and fortune in Hollywood. In the run up to the 35th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s signature dance move, two London filmmakers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to shoot the final footage for a feature documentary, the story of three fans so dedicated to their hero they have become a Michael Jackson tribute act.

The documentary follows three Michael Jackson tribute artists – Quintin, Malachi and Chavail – from their homes in Northern California as they embark on a road trip to Hollywood to realise their dreams of becoming full-time performers. Throughout the journey we are reminded of their resilience as they stop at nothing to find success, supporting each other along the way. We see them face the harsh reality of trying to make it in Hollywood, experiencing high and lows which force them to look within and examine their motivations.

Chavail 24, Quintin 28 and Malachi 29 are three Michael Jackson tribute artists from small towns on the west coast of America, who dream of making it big in Hollywood.

Director Tom Goudsmit says;

“When I first met them I was stuck by there energy, enthusiasm and love for MJ, after talking to them I knew we would go on a journey together.”

“I’ve always been a Michael Jackson fan,” said Producer Tristan Anderson, “and I was instantly spellbound by the extremes that these guys go to. In some ways Chavail, Quintin, and Malachi are everyone who has ever attempted to follow a dream, and that’s what Kickstarter is all about.”

The project has been self-financed by the team and filmed in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Funds raised through Kickstarter will fund for one final shoot and post-production complete the film before the anniversary of the Moonwalk later this year.

For Michael Jackson fans, rewards include a copy of the film, a make up tutorial or a digital dance lesson from one of the Michaels and a chance to appear in the credits of the film. For London filmmakers, there’s also a documentary filmmaking masterclass from the award-winning filmmakers behind the project a chance to attend the red carpet premiere in London and executive producer credits.

Tyler HenryTyler Henry Contacted Michael Jackson About Death. 19-02-'18

Michael Jackson has painted a picture of his final moments from beyond the grave to Tyler Henry, the medium has complained.

Tyler Henry claims the late Michael Jackson ''came through'' to explain the final moments before his death.

The 'Hollywood Medium' star sat down with the King of Pop's sister, LaToya Jackson, who wanted to ask questions about the 'Thriller' hitmaker's death from acute propofol intoxication in June 2009, which ultimately saw his personal physician Conrad Murray convicted of involuntary manslaughter after administering the lethal dose of the painkiller.

And after claiming to have made contact with Michael's spirit, Tyler promised the upcoming episode of his show will give his fans a ''deeper sense of closure'' about the 'Beat It' singer's death.

Tyler told E! News: ''It's hard to even talk about the subject casually because he did, he came through! It's still one of the most surprising, bizarre, surreal experiences in my life...

''He conveyed various messages and I think LaToya was still very curious about the nature of what exactly happened to Michael in his final moments. There were some questions about the timeline as far as who was around at the time.

''And so Michael basically came through, to the best of my ability I conveyed the timeline of what I saw to be true as far as painting that picture.

''It just helped I think provide some validation for them because there were some questions about were certain people in the room at the time or if they're weren't. Things like that I think can really help people put things to rest.

''But especially when it's such a public figure, I think everyone who watches this episode will find a deeper sense of closure around Michael's passing as well.''

The 22-year-old star admitted he was surprised to find Michael a ''vulnerable and private'' presence, rather than a showman.

He said: ''What I thought was so interesting when Michael connected to LaToya was that I was kind of expecting Michael Jackson to come through like moonwalking with like a whole audience full of people and a lot of feeling of like celebrity.

''But when he came through he was quite the opposite. He came through very vulnerable, very private.

''He came across just like a brother trying to connect with his sister and it really wasn't that different than if I were connecting any random person to their brother.

''And it was just really special because it showed universally these connections are all something we can relate to. And even if we're a celebrity in life, they still connect on a personal level on the other side.''
