The Legend Lives On

They say that everybody remembers where they were and what they were doing when news of a high profile tragic death hits the news. Princess Diana, Michael Hutchence, John Lennon, John F Kennedy and Elvis Presley passed away too soon, leaving a legacy that continues to influence people today.

I clearly remember where I was the day I woke to hear the news that Michael Jackson died suddenly, ahead of 50 scheduled sell out concerts to be held at the O2 Arena London in 2009.

THRILLER LIVE is over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco in a show that pays homage to Michael Jackson's legendary live performances and the magic of his 45-year musical history.

The show features stunning choreography and Michael's innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion. Coupled with high-energy choreography and dancing, eye-popping video footage, a myriad of effects combined with dazzling costumes, sequins and hot pants (not forgetting the signature white suit and glove), the show is something fans will never forget.

The show was originally conceived and created by Adrian Grant, a long-time associate of Michael Jackson. It opened at the Lyric Theatre London in January 2009 to rave reviews, then embarked on a world and sell-out UK arena tour. It entered the West End record books by becoming the longest running show in the Lyric Theatre's 125 year history.
