Ultimate Thriller: The Michael Jackson Tribute at Hard Rock Live September 1
Sadly, Michael Jackson didn't live to see his seventh album's 25th anniversary. Almost exactly three years ahead of Bad's silver jubilee, Jacko received a fatal dose of "milk" from his personal physician, Conrad Murray. But it'll take much more than a lousy concoction of propofol and anti-anxiety medication to kill the late singer's legacy.
And nobody understands that better than Gunther Kia, Catholic Health Services, Air Around the Clock, and a handful of local radio stations. Together with Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the aforementioned businesses and organizations are celebrating 25 years of Bad with the tribute show Ultimate Thriller.
Emphatically billed as "the most authentic and exciting musical bow to Jackson's legacy," Ultimate Thriller was created to "usher in the 25th anniversary of his [number one] smash." Authentically re-creating MJ's hustle, celebrity impersonator extraordinaire E'Casanova will channel his inner 1987 and attempt to answer the question on everyone's mind: Who's bad?
