 プレスリリース原文
This Is It: Kenny Ortega Announced as Show Director

The streets of Hollywood are buzzing;
Michael Jackson mania is in full swing 5,500 miles away from The O2 arena
the home of his historic 50 concerts this summer.

Kenny Ortega, the renowned Director, Producer, Choreographer and creative
talent is hard at work collaborating with Michael Jackson in the overall design
and direction for the upcoming ‘This Is It’ concert shows. Ortega previously
worked on Michael Jackson’s Dangerous and HIStory tours, some of the
most spectacular shows ever staged.

Last week, thousands of dancers flew in from every corner of the
globe including Japan, Australia, South America and Europe to audition for
Jackson and Ortega -- all of them were chasing their dream of winning a
spot to perform on stage with their idol Michael Jackson.

Even after the selection process narrowed the competition from thousands
of submissions to over five hundred top international dancers,
there was still no dance space large enough in Los Angeles or New York
to house the auditions. The producers ended up booking LA’s Nokia Theatre
L.A. LIVE, part of the site where the Grammy Awards are held each year,
to handle the unprecedented numbers of performers who flocked to these auditions.

Ortega, having once been in partnership with Gene Kelly, is most recently
known for his work as the Director and Choreographer of Disney’s,
High School Musical 1, 2 & 3. Ortega also Produced and Directed the
Barbra Streisand’s Millennium concert tour and is a two time Emmy award
winner for his work as Director and Choreographer of the 2002 Winter Olympics
opening and closing ceremonies in Salt Lake City, Utah.

In receiving the phone call from Michael to lead the team, Ortega said,
"My answer without a beat was nothing could keep me away. Collaborating with
Michael on the Dangerous and HIStory tours were two of the greatest
creative experiences of my life, to be invited to partner with him again is a dream
come true. Working with Michael is always a true and full partnership,
he is a creative mastermind, he assembles top professionals to lead his team
and then inspires each and every one of us to climb to new places,
break out of the box and conquer new challenges. He is the most significant
artist and entertainer of our generation."

"This Is It" is a spectacular concert experience incorporating iconic
Jackson songs and choreography mixed with original new works. Ortega says,
"Our show goals are to create more than a concert but a complete
theatrical musical experience with a dynamic balance that features
Jackson in both spectacular production and intimate settings. The stage set,
choreography, costumes, lighting, effects and overall production will be of
the highest standard and pushing the state of the art."

Michael is dedicated to every detail and aspect of the show working closely
with his creative and talented production team. He is "tremendously excited"
about sharing his stage show with hundreds of thousands of fans this summer in London.

Ortega goes on to say, "It has been over a decade since Michael and I worked
on the HIStory tour together. We had been in discussion in the last couple of
years about finding a new project to work on. When I got the call to join him for
these concerts I was in-between gigs, catching my breath. I had just finished a
World Press tour for High School Musical and was about to start a new film. In
accepting the invitation I had to move a few mountains to clear my schedule,
but I’m thrilled to say I’m fully on board."

Casting is in final stages for dancers and the band. The dedication, passion
and determination of these performers, who are all personally inspired
by Michael Jackson brings an unprecedented intensity to the stage.
Michael Jackson, The King of Pop, has influenced a generation of
performers through his music, dance and stage shows impacting an art form.

This week with rehearsals in full swing the impossible has become possible
as details to this complex and dramatic show are being put together.
And when moments get intense and exciting in rehearsals an age-old British
tradition has been adopted -- a tea break!

Ortega adds, "I go to work each day with a huge sense of joy just knowing
what is in-store. Michael, the team and I will hash out a creative idea,
we’re ready to implement it and Michael will say let’s sleep on it.
The next day he is back in studio raising the bar to the next level
and pushing us further for greater dynamic results."

Randy Phillips, President & CEO of AEG Live, commented,
"The unprecedented demand for these shows turned a normal public on
sale into a cultural phenomenon and pushed the boundaries by which
we measure success. Michael and Kenny are creating an escapist
adventure that will take the audience on an entertainment experience
only imagined in dreams or big budget motion pictures. This is the
perfect pairing on unique creative talents with the greatest repertoire
in contemporary music."

Ortega concludes, "I am looking forward to the creative days ahead as we
build a Michael Jackson experience like no other, and to ultimately
arriving at The O2 -- a magnificent venue and a worldly place.
I am thrilled to be a part of the team that once again is bringing
Michael Jackson, the greatest entertainer of our generation, back
to the stage and into the light and love of his devoted fans."

By the end of the 50 concerts, 1 million fans will have witnessed
one of the greatest musical events in history. This will be the
last chance to see the King of Pop in London in what will be
a historic stage show, and once in a lifetime concert
experience -- this really is it!

Note To Editors -- One of the world’s most popular entertainers,
Michael Jackson has sold over 750 million units worldwide
and is one of the very few artists to be inducted twice into
the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Guinness
back of World Records has recognised Michael Jackson
as the Most Successful Entertainer of All Time and Thriller
as The Biggest Selling Album of All Time. Jackson won 13
Grammy Awards and received the American Music Award’s
Artist of the Century Award.
