Jamie King is the leading concert director in the world of pop music today and Michael Jackson ONE is King's second show with Cirque du Soleil, having served as writer & director of the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour. In 2011, Variety published a special tribute celebrating King's career as "Billion Dollar Show Director" highlighting the nineteen pop music tours he has choreographed and directed and his overall impact on the global music industry. Variety previously named King as one of the most influential “movers and shakers” in the music industry, having created some of the highest grossing concert tours of all time. In 2012, King was executive producer and star of the hit Latin talent reality series (and Las Vegas live show) Q'Viva! The Chosen in partnership with Jennifer Lopez, Mark Anthony and Simon Fuller. For the past sixteen years, King has worked as Madonna's creative director, overseeing her 2012 Superbowl Halftime Show and serving as creative producer of the MDNA world tour. King previously directed Madonna's Sticky & Sweet, Confessions, Re-Invention and Drowned World tours and directed her hit music video Sorry. Other King directed tours include Rihanna (Loud; Last Girl On Earth), Britney Spears (Femme Fatal; Circus; Oops I Did It Again), Celine Dion (Taking Chances), Ricky Martin (Black and White; La Vida Loca), Christina Aguilera (Back to Basics; Stripped), Avril Lavigne (Best Damn) and The Return of the Spice Girls. A multiple Emmy Award® and MTV Video Music Award® nominee, and greatly influenced by his early years working for both Prince and Michael Jackson (with whom he toured as one of four dancers on the Dangerous world tour), King has worked with an array of superstars including Mariah Carey, Shakira, George Michael, Asian superstar Rain, Elton John, Diana Ross and even Ellen DeGeneres.
