By Lauren - Gold Coast Mum

My family and I are a huge fans of Michael Jackson’s music!

My younger sister spent countless hours of her youth learning and singing along to every word and even now, in adulthood, still knows every dance move as well.

We’ve also had fun dancing along to MJ songs using the Wii Dance!

I can’t help but sing along to one of my childhood faves, ‘Black or White’, and know the rap word for word.

Here are my sisters and I in 1997 at Disneyland Paris. My middle sis loved wearing her MJ shirts! (Here we are aged 5, 14, 15).

In 2010, when I was in the final weeks of pregnancy with my firstborn,
I had the privilege of attending the Michael Jackson “This Is It" DVD launch in Sydney.

I was working as the news editor of a weekly national newsstand magazine so often got to attend exciting events, but as an MJ fan, this was a super special event to attend, and a chance to celebrate his life.

Sequin glove. Shamone!

I also managed to grab a selfie with Jackie Jackson from the Jackson 5 (also one of Michael’s brothers)!

(This was before ‘selfies’ were a thing so it was taken on my camera where I hoped for the best in that split second I had).

Soooo.... I bet you can imagine how excited my sister and I are to be attending the Michael Jackson HIStory Show when Showtime Australia returns to The Star Gold Coast, 29-31 December 2017!

The world-class production showcases all of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits performed live on stage, complemented by the famous dance moves that fans all know, love and aspire to do - audience members can get in on the action and boogie the year away on the dance floor which will be open to all ticket holders for all performances. 

Star of the show, Dantanio, will be accompanied by a lively six-piece band, backup dancers and a phenomenal lighting and effects team which will help amp up patrons' New Year's celebrations.
