The sons of late 'Thriller' singer Michael Jackson were spotted out and about at a Las Vegas casino catching a show which honoured their father's work.

The pair were snapped in Las Vegas on what would have been the King of Pop's 65th birthday following a Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil showing on Tuesday (29 August).

Given that their public sightings are far and few between, it's no surprise that guests Sin City’s Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino couldn't wait to interact with both Prince, 26, and Blanket or 'Bigi', 21.

Blanket, whose official name from birth is Prince Michael Jackson II, first entered the public eye way back in 2002 when his pop icon father dangled him off a hotel balcony to groups of paparazzi and press below.

Now an adult, Blanket – or as he's now known, Bigi – has naturally changed quite a bit from his first outing in the spotlight.

With an early childhood thrown into the public eye, alongside Prince and his sister Paris, 25, Bigi was rarely seen again in public spheres.

But Tuesday's events weren't the only fleeting public appearance the 'Billie Jean' star's children have made.

Back in November 2021, Bigi stepped back into the spotlight alongside his brother and sister to call for action against climate change.

However, yesterday's appearance seems to have had a lighter tone as the two sons greeted adoring fans with one MJ supporter handing them a picture of Michael with an angel on it as they all shared their favorite memories of the singer.

They also both took a number of photos with fans.

The Cirque du Soleil show paying tribute to the 'Man in the Mirror' hitmaker is 'part music, part acrobatics [and] all amazing', apparently.

The event's official website reads: "This unforgettable experience focused on choreography and visual effects pays special attention to the music of the show itself.

"The songs on Michael Jackson ONE have been reworked but have stayed fairly true to the album versions and have been given a cinematic treatment."

What would have been the 'Thriller' singer's 65th birthday marks the 10th anniversary of the Vegas residency.

Along with his siblings, Bigi was raised by his grandmother Katherine after the death of his father in 2009, though he has since moved to his own California mansion reportedly worth a whopping $2.7 million.

The new property is said to have six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a huge swimming pool – complete with a whole host of celebrity neighbours.
