Michael Jackson impersonator at Three Stages

Three Stages in Folsom presents “Michael Jackson HIStory featuring Kenny Wizz,” Friday to Sunday, June 14 to 16.

After selling out shows in South Africa, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, the show arrives in the United States for the first time.

In “HIStory,” the World No. 1 impersonator, Kenny Wizz, with a live band of talented musicians, fully choreographed dancers, authentic costumes and a light and screen show gives a live recreation of what fans want but can never again see — a Michael Jackson concert experience.

The musical biography will take fans right back to the Jackson 5 era; hit after hit tells the story of one of the greatest pop icons the world has ever known. In all, “HIStory” features more than 20 songs performed live by Wizz.

Wizz’s strong resemblance to Jackson heralded the start of a long career as a conduit for Jackson music. His regular performances in Atlantic City gratified audiences and allowed him to perfect his act. After tours in Europe and Asia, Wizz settled in Las Vegas where his show was signed for 11 years at the Riviera Hotel and Casino.

Shattered by Jackson’s death in June 2009, Wizz closed his act down. In 2011, Wizz joined forces with ShowTime Management Australia to create “Michael Jackson HIStory.”

“My decision to return was more about giving back to fans rather than making money,”  said Wizz.

Repeatedly described as a musical juggernaut, Michael Jackson’s influence on popular culture and music is virtually unparalleled.

In addition to  his inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jackson held 13 Grammy awards and 26 American Music Awards including “Artist of the Century.”

“HIStory” will be performed at Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Friday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, June 16 at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $39 to $59 with premium tickets available for $69. Tickets are available online at threestages.net or from the Three Stages ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time.
