(CNN) — Cirque du Soleil has confirmed that a new show inspired by the work of Michael Jackson is coming to Las Vegas this year.

Called “Michael Jackson ONE,” the King of Pop-themed event will start preview performances on May 23, and will officially premiere June 29 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

“Michael Jackson ONE”, written and directed by Jamie King, is described as “a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius.” The story focuses on “four misfits” who embark on a “transformative adventure … guided and inspired by [Jackson’s] music … By journey’s end, they will personify Michael’s agility, courage, playfulness and love.”

This marks the second MJ-inspired show from Cirque du Soleil, as they’re also currently showing “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour,” which also uses the pop icon’s music.

General ticket sales for “Michael Jackson ONE” begin March 7.
