In the Spotlight
Michael Jackson LIVE Gallery
Michael Jackson was the ultimate live performer. From the Jackson 5 up to This Is It, each time he stepped on stage, Michael showed the world why there was nobody quite like him. His talent, flair, stage presence and grace gave him a reputation that would be included in the history books. Kingvention 2017 – Access All Areas takes you back to some of Michael’s most famous live performances and tours through a gallery of stunning images and pertinent moments in his career.
Michael Jackson's Moonwalker Transformations
A Behind the Scenes Look at Moonwalker's Special FX
In the mid 80’s, Michael Jackson had a vision for a movie that would feature himself in the starring role. Moonwalker was the finished result and saw Michael turn in to a car, a spaceship and a robot. At this year’s Kingvention, fans will have the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the transitions in the movie, included the deleted plans for Michael to transition in to a white dove! More exciting is the 2017 public premiere of the Michael Jackson Phase 2 Robot Transition bust. The bust was created from a mould of Michael’s face and then enhanced by the special effects team to be used along with two other busts and the mechanical mask to create the feature. Do not miss your chance to get a photo with this HIStorical artifact!
