Michael Jackson's new Cirque Du Soleil show in Las Vegas brought his daughter Paris to tears when she first saw it, because it reminded her of happy days when the Neverland Ranch was her home.
Jackson and his kids vacated the sprawling estate in Santa Barbara, California after police raided it looking for clues to convict the King of Pop as a child molester in 2004.
But the Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour spectacle, which opened at the Mandalay Bay over the weekend (03Dec11), brought back happy memories for the teen.
She tells news show Access Hollywood, "All of the acts are just completely amazing and very creative. I love the gates of Neverland. When I first saw that, it brought tears to my eyes. It was amazing. I grew up in Neverland, and it’s just like, bringing back memories."
And she insists her dad would have loved the show: "He would have been proud, and he would have loved to be here to see it."
Jackson died in 2009.
