History II for Artscape

Pin It


The acclaimed Michael Jackson HIStory ll Show, a musical biography of Michael Jackson’s life, will be staged at the Artscape Opera House in Cape Town from 10 to 28 October, 2012.

Featuring a live band, fully choreographed dancers, authentic costumes and high production values, HIStory II brings fans what they want but can never again see - a Michael Jackson concert. The show stars Kenny Wizz, widely recognised as the best Michael Jackson Impersonator in the world.

The first HIStory concert was a sell out when it was presented at GrandWest Casino in 2011 and since then Michael Jackson fans have called for its return. True to Michael Jackson, the show has reinvented itself, with a brand new production that has raised the bar and exceeded all expectations, with the addition of new songs, outstanding dances routines and spectacular visual effects.

The production 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 Kenny Wizz, the celebrated Las Vegas performer.

Wizz was twenty when Michael Jackson’s career exploded with the release of the pivotal album Thriller. During that time, his 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 runs at Artscape from 10 to 28 October with performances Wednesdays to Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm and Sundays at 6pm. Tickets cost from R125 to R290 via Computicket, www.computicket.co.za or 0214217695 . The concert moves to The  Sibiya Theatre in Durban December 2012 and then to The Joburg Theatre in January 2013.
