Moonwalking into the West End after three UK tours and standing ovations across Europe, Thriller Live is a spectacular show celebrating the career of the brilliant Michael Jackson, and the Jackson 5. Thriller Live is fully backed by Sony BMG Music Entertainment UK, marking the first Jackson’s dedicated live theatrical experience!
Bringing to stage the sensational dancing and distinctive sound of the Jackson’s greatest hits, Thriller Live includes brilliant multi-media effects and dazzling choreography by the shows award-winning director Gary Lloyd, plus additional choreography by 5 time MTV award-winning LaVelle Smith Jnr.
In a career spanning 40 years, Michael Jackson has sold an amazing 750 million records worldwide with the Thriller album still the world’s best-selling recording of all time. Thriller Live includes more than 2 hours of hit songs in a show that boasts a world-class spectacle.
You can enjoy your favourite Jackson songs performed by an exceptionally talented cast and live band, including the smash hits: I Want You Back, I’ll Be There, Show You The Way To Go, Can You Feel It, Rock With You, She’s Out Of My Life, Billie Jean, Earth Song, Beat It, and Thriller plus many more!
“Well I’ve been part of this show from the very beginning, nearly 7 years. I’ve left to do other shows but always loved returning to Thriller Live. I’ve always lived and breathed Michael Jackson since I was 5, when my father took me to the Dangerous Concert and I was hooked on his songs and performance from then! I’m also a huge Janet Jackson fan. I take inspiration from them both!” Zoe Birkett
“Thriller Live is a celebration of Michael Jackson’s wide range of music, there are 30 hits and it is not a story of his life but a tribute to his inspiration. The dancing and singing always has a great effect on the audience and many times they are joining in. People always say it is even better than they actually expected.” Reece McConnell
I was lucky enough to see Michael Jackson live at Wembley in 1997 and have to say, this is the nearest thing to that concert that I can imagine. Michael himself may be dead but with Thriller Live – just celebrating becoming the 15th longest running musical in the West End – delighting audiences eight times a week his music lives on.
