Whacko Jacko’s back moonwalkingMarch 31st, 2009 - 7:05 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
Michael Jackson’s signature moonwalk has been quite a phenomenon.
In the famous move, he appears to glide backwards while walking forwards.
Now the buzz is that pop legend Michael Jackson has embarked on a rigorous training programme to ensure he will be fit and agile enough to perform his signature moonwalk during his London concerts this summer.
The singer is now 50 and attempted the Moonwalk in public as long as eight years ago.
He last performed it in September 2001 at a one-off concert celebrating his 30th anniversary as a performer.
The Daily Mail reports that he has been spending hours studying old footage of his famous moves and is working with choreographer Kenny Ortega and a team of fitness trainers to ensure he is step-perfect this July.
A source has said, “Michael has started working with a choreographer and trainers to get him in shape because he wants to perform the moves that made him famous. He is spending hours watching his past performances and videos because he wants to put on a show that is as good as - if not better than - those he’s done before.”
The source added, “He is determined he’s going to do the Moonwalk because the fans will go crazy for it. He also wants to do his other famous moves from throughout his career. The shows will be his swan song so he wants them to be the best ever. And he knows that what the fans love is the whole Michael Jackson package - not just the songs, but the dance moves too. He will deliver.”
Along with trying to make his face look normal (his nose is falling off it was said sometime ago), Jackson’s hidden desire is to retrieve some of his lost glory as well. Or so it seems! Because with someone so eccentric as him, no one can tell. -Sampurn Media
