King of Pop’s legacy lives on in Prossie

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

THERE’S an old say­ing that every­one re­mem­bers where they were when they heard about JFK’s death in 1963.

The same could be said for an en­tire gen­er­a­tion when they heard in 2009 that Michael Jack­son had passed away.

To­day the clos­est fans can get to the mu­sic is through trib­ute shows and one of the best in the world is com­ing this Satur­day to Pros­per­ine State High School hall at 8.30pm.

Wil­liam Hall is re­turn­ing to our shores as the star of Michael Jack­son – The Legacy Tour, which was a big hit last year.

Speak­ing from Las Vegas, where he was in the mid­dle of an Amer­i­can tour, Hall was ex­cited about re­turn­ing, and spoke about Jack­son’s legacy in mu­sic.

“He def­i­nitely had an in­flu­ence on me at a young age, he came from nowhere back then,” Hall said.

“If you were around at the height of his suc­cess then you know what it was like.

“Sin­gle af­ter sin­gle com­ing out and go­ing to the top of the charts – we’ve never seen that again, not to that de­gree.

“Michael Jack­son came and took over ev­ery­thing.”

Adult tick­ets are $65 and chil­dren $35.
