Look out, Sin City! Here comes Michael Jackson's famed Neverland Ranch! The Associated Press reports that Cirque du Soleil wants to recreate Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in Las Vegas of all places.
The Mandalay Bay hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip plans to open a sprawling entertainment complex that includes a Jackson-themed lounge, an interactive memorabilia museum and a theater designed to replicate the iconic refuge of the deceased musical legend, Cirque du Soleil president Daniel Lamarre said Wednesday. Michael Jackson's spirit and essence will certainly live on with this "sprawling entertainment complex!"
"This place, Mandalay Bay, is going to become the home of Michael Jackson in many, many ways," Lamarre said at an announcement at the casino attended by Jackson's older brother, Jackie.
The King of Pop's estate is in full support of the attraction, with John Branca, co-executor of Michael Jackson's estate, saying that this set up will offer fans a permanent place to celebrate, as well as give them the opportunity to see some of the objects displayed at Neverland Ranch.
"Very few fans would ever get to visit Michael's Neverland Ranch because of its remote location," he said.
Plans for the Las Vegas lodestone, set to open in 2013, are part of the budding business relationship between the acrobatic troupe and the pop star's estate.
