The ‘Michael Jackson HIStory ll Show’, starring Kenny Wizz, has been wowing Cape Town since it opened at the Artscape Opera House on October 10. The reviews have been outstanding across the board and audiences have been amazed and thrilled by Wizz’s uncanny likeness to the King of Pop. The concert is a moving tribute to Jackson’s life and his exceptional talent, and Wizz is widely recognised as the best Michael Jackson Impersonator in the world.
The production, a musical biography of Jackson’s life, takes fans right back to the Jackson 5 era and through a thrilling journey to the current decade. Hit after hit tells the story of one of the greatest pop icons the world has ever known and features over twenty songs performed live by Wizz, the celebrated Las Vegas performer. The concert’s success is the product of Wizz’s dedication to championing the genius of Michael Jackson, and ‘HIStory’ is the result of more than two decades perfecting “the art of sharing MJ”.
Together with a live band of talented musicians, superb dancers, authentic Jackson costumes and high production values, ‘HIStory II’ brings fans what they want but can never again see, a Michael Jackson concert. Songs such as ‘ABC’, ‘Ben’, ‘Smooth Criminal’, ‘Beat It’ and many more are performed in the ‘HIStory ll Show’.
Wizz was twenty when Michael Jackson’s career exploded with the release of the pivotal album ‘Thriller’. During that time, Wizz’s strong resemblance to Jackson heralded the start of a long career as a conduit for Jackson music. His regular performances in Atlantic City gratified audiences and allowed him to perfect his act. After tours in Europe and Asia, Wizz settled in Las Vegas where his show was signed for eleven years at the Riviera Hotel and Casino.
The ‘Michael Jackson HIStory ll Show’ must end this weekend with shows on Friday October 26 at 8pm, Saturday October 27 at 8pm and on Sunday October 28 at 6pm. Don’t miss your last chance to see Kenny Wizz bring Michael Jackson to Cape Town. Tickets cost from R125 to R290 via Computicket.
