Thriller Live

Thriller Live, familiar to many as the ‘Michael Jackson musical’, will embark on a new UK tour in 2017, opening at the Southport Theatre on 27th January.

The new tour is currently confirmed to run until 29th April, when it will close at the Belgrade Theatre.

Venues that will be visited on the regional tour will include Swansea’s Grand Theatre, the Grand Theatre Wolverhampton, the Theatre Royal in Norwich, and His Majesty’s Theatre in Aberdeen.

Thriller Live features songs by Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5. Groups can enjoy a soundtrack jam-packed with hits such as I Want You Back, ABC, Can You Feel It, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, and Billie Jean.

What can audiences expect?

In a career spanning 40 years, Michael Jackson is said to have sold 750 million records worldwide with the Thriller album.

Thriller Live includes over two hours of non-stop hit songs in a show that is described as a tribute to the singer’s life and career.

Groups can expect exciting choreography, multi-media affects and strobe lighting throughout the show.

Unlike other West End productions, Thriller Live is not a rigid book musical with set songs, but is described as a constantly evolving music concert celebration.
