“This concert is coming to Enterprise directly from Las Vegas,” Cannon said. “This show brings the energy, excitement and spectacle of this legendary superstar.”

Michael Jackson is portrayed by Jalles Franca who, Cannon said, looks like, sounds like and dances like Jackson.

Franca will change from glitzy jackets to white T-shirts during the concert. The audience will be treated to some of Jackson’s most famous songs including “Beat It,” “Thriller,” “The Man in the Mirror,” and “Bad.”

Advance tickets are $25 for adults; $20 for students. Day of the event tickers are $30 for adults and $23 for students.

Tickets are available locally at The Printing Press in Troy.
