Michael Jackson Thriller Casino Slated for Las Vegas
When it comes to anything that Michael Jackson touches, difficulties and peculiarities are never far behind. And it’s certainly taken a toll on the iconic performer. But never one to back down from controversy, Jackson always finds a way to capitalize on his own brand. His latest venture? The undisputed King of Pop is in discussions to open a new Las Vegas casino next year, entirely themed on his 1982 international breakthrough song, Thriller.
The headline, lawsuit and debt magnet is actively seeking out new ways to generate income based on his incalculable global following. The casino idea comes on the back of his 50-date UK tour, a brand new album and several films, all of which are planned to materialize over the next 12 months. Never a dull moment in the Jackson camp. But it’s a form of necessity as he is quoted to owe an estimated $100 to $300 million.
The Thriller casino will replicate sets from the hit song Thriller, from the multi-platinum-award-winning album of the same name, and will feature zombies behind slot machines and “the living dead” roaming round the casino at night.
