High-performance audio manufacturer Monster pulled the curtain on its CES 2016 Monster Retailer Awards and Concert, which will be held at the Axis Theatre at Planet Hollywood on Thursday, January 7. There, Monster will present “Heal the World, A Tribute to Michael Jackson,” which the company said will be a star-studded event featuring some of the biggest names in music entertainment, including several of the Jacksons themselves.

monster ces 2016The full list of performers will be revealed on January 1, but Monster did say that they will all be backed by a 30-piece orchestra arranged and conducted by Grammy award-winning producer and engineer Vassal Benford.

The concert will include some of MJ’s most popular hits, including the song the night is named after, “Heal the World.”

“Our CES concert series has always been about sharing Monster’s heart and soul, our love for great music and for an authentic live music experience. Over the years, it’s been our great honor and privilege to present so many iconic artists to CES attendees. This year’s tribute to Michael Jackson is truly fitting. His song ‘Heal the World’ truly speaks to the needs of today’s times and Monster feels that it’s part of our obligation as corporate citizens to bring social consciousness to CES to help fight terror, violence, and to clean up the environment for future generations.”

Monster said that it expects more than 5,000 consumer electronics professionals to attend the invitation-only event, meaning the 7,000-seat venue will be at near capacity. And aside from enjoying a night of live entertainment, attendees will also learn who will be honored with Monster’s prestigious Retailer Awards. Awards will be handed out in a number of categories that include the top award of “Most Monsterous Retailer of the Year.”

Also, Monster will share some of the details on their plan to expand into new and emerging markets in 2016 and beyond. In a statement, Monster said those plans include expanding relationships with existing partners, as well as new partners in categories that include fitness, lifestyle, and gaming headphones; speakers to complete their line of SuperStar Bluetooth speakers; and a new mobile line.

Monster plans Michael Jackson tribute at CES

Noel Lee, the founder of electronics company Monster, is accustomed to bringing big name music to the Consumer Electronics Show. This year, he wants to bring some big concepts, too.

The concert event Heal the World: A Tribute to Michael Jackson, scheduled for Jan. 7 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino's Axis Theater, will have a big-name roster of music stars performing the music of the late King of Pop. Jackson's single Heal the World from his 1991 album Dangerous serves as the touchstone.

Among performers will be the Jacksons, members of Aerosmith, George Benson, Ne-Yo, Christina Milian, Rick Ross and Luis Coronel. NBA legend and entrepreneur Magic Johnson will host the event. Producer and record label exec Vassal Benford will conduct a 30-piece orchestra. Additional special surprise guests are planned, too.

About 5,000 annually attend Monster's annual retailer awards and concert at CES. Past performers have included Steve Miller, Rod Stewart, Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, and Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Because of concerns about the environment and "all the violence and terrorism in the world," Lee said that he wanted to put on an especially uplifting event at this year's CES.

"I want to highlight a social consciousness of solutions that the consumer electronics field can think about," he said. "For instance, if you can have a fingerprint reader on a iPhone, why can’t you have one on a gun? My goal is to stir up innovation around affecting the world."

Heal The World Tribute Konzert

In Las Vegas findet am Donnerstag, 7. Januar, ein Event für geladene Gäste statt: “Heal the World: A Tribute to Michael Jackson”. Rund 5000 Personen lädt Veranstalter Noel Lee, Gründer der Elektronikfirma Monster, ins Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Axis Theater.

Die auftretenden Künstler werden gemäss Medienberichten ausgewählte Songs von Michael Jackson interpretieren. Während “Heal the World: A Tribute to Michael Jackson” werden unter anderen The Jacksons, Mitglieder von Aerosmith, George Benson, Ne-Yo, Christina Milian, Rick Ross und Luis Coronel auftreten. Die NBA-Legende Magic Johnson (“Remember The Time”) wird den Event moderieren.

Veranstalter Noel Lee möchte mit dem Konzert als Teil der “Consumer Electronics Show” (CES) ein moralisches Zeichen setzen, hinsichtlich all der Gewalt und dem Terrorismus in der Welt, und der Sorgen um die Umwelt. Er wolle das Bewusstsein für Lösungsansätze fördern. “Zum Beispiel, wenn du einen Fingerabdruckleser auf einem iPhone haben kannst, wieso kann man einen solchen nicht auch auf einer Schusswaffe haben.”
