Concert: Michael Jackson Immortal Shortly before he died, Michael Jackson was preparing to kick off a string of 50 concerts in London. The dates were spread out over the course of a year, and every last one of them was sold out. The rest is history: A few weeks before "This Is It" was to start, Jackson overdosed and died--some say the drugs were steadying his nerves about the show. Three years later, Cirque du Soleil has launched its own massive Michael Jackson tour, an homage titled "The IMMORTAL World Tour." The show features the usual Cirque stunts, dancing, and physically daunting feats, all performed to Jackson's music with the king of pop's likeness broadcast on a giant screen. Through July 16 at the Verizon Center, 601 F St. NW. Phone: (202) 628-3200. Website: http://verizoncenter.com/
