Michael Jackson hires magician Copperfield

London, April 1 -- Pop star Michael Jackson, who is working on a comeback in Britain, has hired magician David Copperfield to spice up the shows.

They apparently met at the magician's California headquarters and are planning some grandiose stunts. The highlight of the show will supposedly be highwire routines and a levitation trick, reports thesun.co.uk.

Copperfield is famous for making the Statue of Liberty disappear and now Jackson is counting on him to lend a helping hand.

A source said: "Jacko and David have been close pals for years. Michael is a massive fan of magic and has been to see all the big illusionists in Vegas over the years. He has some very clear plans on what he wants the show to include and feels David is the man to help make them happen. It's not just about music for Michael, it's about the show. The levitation stunt will be something special."
