The late Michael Jackson is set to tour the world again – as a hologram after receiving the biggest cheer at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 18, ARY News has learnt.
The late King of Pop, who was resurrected onstage at the Billboard Music Awards among nearly 20 A-list performances, garnered the highest round of applause.
A computer-generated performance of the King of Pop dancing and singing a new song, Slave to the Rhythm, off his posthumous album Xscape prompted an emotional standing ovation from the crowd.
Xscape, released on May 2, features eight previously unreleased songs from Jackson that were recorded between 1983 and 1999.
According to sources, the producers behind the special effects extravaganza want to take their show on the road for a two-year tour and are predicted to make half a billion dollars.
