There's nothing like the real thing. But sometimes, the real thing isn't available, and a fake version of Michael Jackson will more than do -- especially for under twenty bucks. Even before The King of Pop passed away, North Carolina's Who's Bad has been putting jaw-dropping shows (since 2004, to be exact) for fans who may have missed the chance to see Michael perform.
Joseph Bell leads the full band, back-up singers and all, through MJ's four-decade long career with great dance moves, very believable make-up and near-perfect impressions of Michael's voice, mannerisms and strange but appealing demeanor. Suddenly, the thrill of hearing and seeing "Thriller" performed live can come to fruition -- and you can pretend for a moment that the Michael Jackson you're staring at is alive and well and is, thankfully, wearing a prosthetic nose. This show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $18-20. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9p.m.
