With a tilted black hat and single white glove, a man moonwalks across the stage as light reflects off his sequined jacket. He lets out a tuneful yowl, and for a moment the audience is transported back to the early 1980s, when the King of Pop ruled the radio airwaves. A rotating cast that often includes Michael Jackson among other musical greats comes to life during Legends, a live tribute performance that has entertained crowds for nearly three decades. Since its debut at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Las Vegas in 1983, Legends has filled stages across the country with glitzy sets, explosive special effects, and, above all, performers who have spent countless hours acquiring the voice, look, and mannerisms of icons. During each performance, the tribute band mimics masters' iconic moves, ranging from Lady Gaga's monster claw to Elvis' swiveling office chair. The result, according to the New Haven Register is "a brisk, light show of Vegas-style entertainment" that's "hard to beat."
