You wanna be starting something with Thriller Live



Thriller Live
is so successful that it is not only extending its record-breaking seven-year run in London's West End, but it has been re-jigged for a new UK tour.

For those who have seen it before, this brand new version features four new songs, a new opening and new production elements including new video, new costumes and special effects.

The show is dazzling concert to celebrate the 45-year career of Michael Jackson and will be stopping off at venues nationwide until July including Birmingham's New Alexandra Theatre, Oxford New Theatre, Edinburgh Festival Theatre and the Liverpool Empire.

Over two and a half hours, hits include the icon's early music with the Jackson 5 of I Want You Back and ABC through to his Off The Wall album and beyond.

Favourites from The Way You Make Me Feel to Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Bad, Rock With You, They Don't Care About Us, Dangerous, and of course, Thriller, make for a lively show.

Thriller Live, choreographed and directed by award-winning Gary Lloyd, was originally conceived and created by Adrian Grant, a long time associate of Michael Jackson, and author of Michael Jackson The Visual Documentary.
