A 50-foot robotic replica of Michael Jackson
will be reportedly erected in the desert surrounding Las Vegas, according to reports. The self-proclaimed king of pop is currently in talks to sign a long-term concert deal in Nevada's Sin City and local businessmen claim the huge Jackson likeness is among the proposals.
Consultant Mike Luckman of Luckman Van Pier, tells the New York Daily News, "It would be in the desert sands. Laser beams would shoot out of it so it would be the first thing people flying would see. Neon is wonderful, but it's old school."
Luckman's partner, designer Andre Van Pier, adds, "Michael's looked at the sketches and likes them."
However, Jackson's spokeswoman Raymone Bain explains, "He hasn't made up his mind about whether a Vegas show is in the cards for him. He's been in the studio since November working on his music. He's been presented with various proposals. A Vegas show isn't a priority.
"He's in Las Vegas now. He's pretty grounded in Vegas. It's very convenient for producers and songwriters to get to him. He's worked there before. He's been recording with producers Rodney Jerkins
