Introducing Navi, the man that has been chosen by Hollywood to portray Michael
Jackson in an upcoming Lifetime TV movie about the star, is bringing his
incredible tribute show:- 'King Of Pop' (featuring Jackson's very
own guitarist) to the UK this Spring. The tour takes in an initial 18 dates and

Dundee's Whitehall Theatre. The film titled:- 'Michael Jackson - Searching
for Neverland' is expected to be released sometime in 2017.
Navi, who resides right here in the UK, is the man chosen for the sought after
role, which focuses on the final 2 years of the stars life. Navi is widely
regarded as the top MJ impersonator and actually worked for the star himself as
his official body double / decoy. Furthermore, Navi once even received a
standing ovation from Jackson after performing his tribute at 1 of the pop
singers lavish birthday parties.
Talking about the movie and the upcoming UK tour, Navi said:- "The last
few months in Hollywood has been an incredible experience for me. But now I'm
looking forward to getting back on stage where I feel most at home. We have a
great show lined up for the fans."
This amazing and unique show also features Michael Jackson's most iconic
musician and legendary female guitarist, Jennifer Batten. Instantly
recognisable among MJ fans due to her large blonde mane of hair, Jennifer
strutted her stuff on all three of Jackson's record breaking world tours along
with the famous Super Bowl ½ time performance and numerous music videos. For
over 10 years she performed side by side with Michael who affectionately
referred to her as his "Right Hand Woman."
Talking about the tour, Jennifer said:- "I'm really looking forward to
playing Michael Jackson's music again with a top notch tribute in the UK. I
remember the crowds in UK were mad crazy for Michael."

'Smooth Criminal', 'Beat It', 'Billie Jean,'
