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 starts on 4th May at Preston’s Guild Hall and culminates on 2nd June at Dundee’s Whitehall Theatre. The film titled ‘Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland’ is expected to be released later this year.
Navi, who resides right here in the UK, is the man chosen for the sought-after role, which focuses on the final two 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 one 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.”

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 half 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”
Don’t miss King Of Pop, featuring all of Jackson’s greatest hits such as Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Black or White, Man In The Mirror and the ‘Jackson Five’ classics.
