If pop star Michael Jackson hadn’t died in 2009, he would have turned 57 on Aug. 29, and the team at Cirque du Soleil will celebrate his birthday with a day of events honoring the King of Pop.

Artists from “Michael Jackson One,” the Cirque du Soleil show at Mandalay Bay that features his music, his dance moves and even a hologram of Jackson singing, will put on a one-time only performance, Q&A, meet-and-greet and book signing for the event.

The cast of “Michael Jackson One” created this performance to the music of Jackson’s No. 1 hit “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough,” which is not part of the regular show.

Then guests can preview two acts from the show, which will feature his songs “Stranger In Moscow” and “Thriller.”

The afternoon starts with Jackson’s longtime costume designer Michael Bush autographing copies of “The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson” at 3:30 p.m. at the “Michael Jackson One” Boutique.

A short Q&A with some cast members from the show will follow the 4 p.m. performance. Travis Payne, a co-executor of Jackson’s estate, and choreographers Rich & Tone Talauega plan to be on hand for a birthday cake presented at the end of this event.

Anyone with a ticket to the 7 or 9:30 p.m. show on Aug. 29 can attend. Ticket-holders land a “Michael Jackson One” commemorative ticket and more surprises are promised.

Guests who book at Mandalay Bay using the offer code P5MJBDAY also get a birthday gift bag.

Tickets start at $69.
