Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortes is set to perform at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on November 2 as an homage to the late pop star.

The Spanish performer, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the King of Pop, will pay tribute to a particular stage in Jackson’s life, the History World Tour. It was Jackson’s third and final worldwide tour as a solo artist, hitting 57 cities across five continents.

Cortes began impersonating Jackson in the late 80s, when a reporter noted his resemblance to the pop star. He went on to work as a decoy for the singer in 1994, misleading the media during Jackson’s wedding to Lisa Marie Presley.

The performer is also set to star in an upcoming documentary, Mirroring Michael Jackson, which will shine a light on some of the greatest Jackson tribute artists of all time, including Cortes, Christopher Gaspar and Carlo Riley.

Tickets to watch Cortes live are Dh150, available online.
