Due to complicated routing problems it was announced that ‘Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour’ is unable to play in South Africa as planned for March 2014.
Cirque du Soleil commented:
“Due to touring logistical reasons we are no longer able to bring the ‘Michael Jackson: Immortal World Tour’ to every market we had scheduled for 2014 and regretfully, South Africa is one of these markets which is very sad indeed.
We will however look at re-routing this tour to bring the show back in the future and appreciate our fans understanding and continued support.”
Big Concerts is disappointed by the news and will communicate to fans regarding a new tour date.
