Michael Jackson Las Vegas Tribute Announces Financial Results

The financial dust has finally settled from all that tribute “moonwalking” by Las Vegas entertainers for Michael Jackson.  The Aug. 29 Michael Jackson tribute at the Palms Casino & Resort reportedly raised at least $103,00 for the Public Education Foundation. A near-final report by co-producer Steve Friess lists expenses of $21,434 against total revenues of $124,685.

The producers paid $6,000 to have the event filmed, hoping it leads to a local TV broadcast with a call-to-action for the foundation. There’s even talk of a DVD if clearances can be obtained for the songs.
