MJ Live Show is the next big hit show in Las Vegas in the Crown Theater at the Rio Hotel and produced by Dick Feeney. Starring in the MJ Live Show is Michael Firestone who has been performing for over 13 years as Michael Jackson. Michael Firestone wanted to be like Michael Jackson since he was a young boy and he has fulfilled that dream perfectly. Michael acknowledged both Kenny Wizz and Lane Lassiter with getting him his first job as a Michael impersonator and is thankful to them for his start.

The dancers are a perfect fit for the show and Missy did a great job as choreographer in the hour long production. Michael says they are great, professional and serious dancers. The wardrobe is eye-catching and there are lots of costume changes through out the show.

Moonwalker is another show that Michael Firestone performs and travels with around the country. He will be rotating between both shows, MJ Live and Moonwalker. He says that the band, singers and dancers are like his brothers and sisters and they are like family. Both these shows will keep him in shape and like the masters, it will lead to perfection.


Michael Firestone changes into eight different outfits; all perfect for the songs he sings and his hair and make up is stunning. He looks wonderful and amazing as he walks on stage and becomes Michael Jackson.

My favorite song is “ Billie Jean” and when Michael Firestone performs this number I immediately, in my mind, see Michael Jackson dancing. This is the crowds’ favorite and they show it with their applause. I know their hearts are touched.

After a meet and greet with his fans I went backstage to talk with Michael Firestone and he shared his thoughts and love for Michael Jackson. He recalled the time when he met Michael Jackson and then another time when he talked to him all night. He considers Michael Jackson to be the greatest performer there will ever be. Firestone had entered a song writing contest, along with 45,000 other entrees and he won second place and that was such an accomplishment.

Michael likes to tour but prefers to be at home with his children, 12 and six year old Taylor, Hayley Rose and Madison Leona who is on the way. Madison Leona is named for his grandmother. The children are really proud of him and they too may be in the entertainment field in the future. Firestone lives in the Northwest with his family, a German Sheppard dog and snakes that Michael Jackson told him it was safe to have, even though the first day he owned the snake, it bit him.

The MJ Live Show will be a must see show that has fantastic dancers and of course the talented Michael Firestone. The dancers are Diane Anesi, Ilir Avdyli, Taylor Garcia, Miki Horiai, Destiny Shami, Daniel Thomson, Ivy Williams.

Firestone had dead front center seats to see Michael Jackson in London and was so sad with Michael’s death that he was going to quit so no one would think he was trying to capitalize on Jackson, and then he saw a lot of bad tributes and he said no way was he going to quit.

Dick Feeney has produced many other spectacular Las Vegas Shows, namely “An Evening at La Gage” at the Riviera Hotel, “Crazy Girls” and “Viva Las Vegas”. Dick is the owner of the “Flying Elvi” that consists of 10 Elvis Presleys sky diving team, who travel all over the world. We are very happy that Dick put together the MJ Live Show for everyone once again to enjoy the music and the dancing.
