The Official Michael Jackson Opus
Opus is to produce the Official Michael Jackson Opus for fans all around the world.
Endorsed by Michael Jackson and by the Michael Jackson Estate
We had been in detailed discussions with Michael over collaborating on his Opus, which would have been the definitive publication on his life and career, shortly before the tragic, untimely death of the man whom Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown, said: “I feel the ‘King of Pop’ is not big enough for him. I think he is simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived”.
The Official Michael Jackson Opus has the full support, contractual cooperation and endorsement of the Michael Jackson Estate. This means that in keeping with other Opus publications the Michael Jackson Opus will have exclusive and rare unseen content, making the publication unique and a must have for all Michael Jackson fans around the world.
To add to this experience, a special Michael Jackson Opus Reality™ card is included with each Opus that, when placed in front of a webcam, will reveal exclusive interactive footage in a 3D experience that will be updated exclusively for Official Michael Jackson Opus owners.
Pre-orders being taken now
A Special Edition Opus normally retails for between £400 and £500. However, in recognition of the fact that not all of Michael’s millions of fans had the chance to see him in concert, we have decided to make this unique publication accessible to all his fans around the world for the very special pre-order price of just £109/$165.
Special offer until 30th September 2009
This is a limited time offer, valid until 30th September 2009. After that date, orders will still be accepted but the special price will no longer be guaranteed.
This will allow Michael’s fans to obtain and experience a permanent work that truly reflects his life and career for less than the average price of a concert ticket. And thanks to chief marketing partner Ticketmaster, the Official Michael Jackson Opus will be available to fans anywhere in the world. Ticketmaster CEO Irving Azoff said: “Ticketmaster is pleased to be the exclusive marketing arm for the only official Michael Jackson publication”.
The first five editions of the Official Michael Jackson Opus will be set aside and offered for auction. These copies will include a unique page that will include the signatures from a number of artists in the music world. The proceeds raised from the auctioned Opuses will be donated to five charities that Michael supported throughout his life.
The Ultimate Tribute
Karl Fowler, CEO of Opus, says: “Michael Jackson’s death shocked and saddened the world. He was a man we all grew up with and who touched all our lives through his music and dance. Our intention with this Opus is to pay the ultimate tribute to one of the world’s greatest entertainers, but in a way that makes it available to as many Michael Jackson fans around the world as possible.”
The Official Michael Jackson Opus is being exclusively offered for pre-order online at Ticketmaster.
