Thriller – Live: Boogie on down to Michael Jackson’s greatest hits

This is more of an exploration and celebration of singer-songwriter and street dance whizz Michael Jackson’s spectacular talents than a biography. It doesn’t cover every aspect of the great man’s life in any detail, but you’ll enjoy a fast-paced, runaway stream of massive smash hits that made him a household name worldwide.

Thriller Live – The Story

In 1988 Adrian Grant, the man behind the stage show, was so taken with Jackson’s talent that he created the world’s first Michael Jackson fan magazine. Two years later, with a circulation of more than twenty five thousand, he was invited to Jackson’s famous funfair-filled home, Neverland, and a lifelong friendship was born. Kicking off with Jackson’s early Motown and blues tunes and covering his disco, indie and pop smashes, this show tracks Jackson’s success through the decades via his music, an affectionate and respectful look at Jackson’s musical achievements from one of his greatest fans.

Thriller Live, a genuine West End musical masterpiece

Take your seats and boogie on down as the cast belts out song after wonderful song, covering the early Motown and Jackson Five days right up to the solo successes that made such an impression on generations of music lovers. And the dance sequences are simply breath-taking. If you were thrilled by Jackson’s pop videos you’ll be equally enthralled by this West End masterpiece.

The audience always participates in the Jackson classic Shake Your Body Down, giving you the opportunity to get involved and feel even closer to one of the greatest musical stars of our times. If you weren’t lucky enough to catch Michael Jackson live before his tragic death, the stage show goes a long way towards making up for it. Whatever your age, you’ll enjoy hearing his famous songs performed live on stage by a troupe of extremely talented people, with stunning costumes, fantastic choreography and, of course, every single one of the singer’s uniquely funky dance steps.

Thriller Live song list

This spectacular show contains thirty five of Michael Jackson’s greatest and best loved hits. Act one covers Music and Me, ABC, The Love You Save, I Want You Back and I’ll Be There. Show You the Way, This Place Hotel, Another Part of Me, Shake Your Body Down and Blame It On The Boogie. She’s Out of My Life, Off The Wall, Get on the Floor, Rock With You and Never Can Say Goodbye, Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough and Can You Feel It.

Act two sees the cast performing mega-hits Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’, Working Day and Night, Dancing Machine, PYT, Beat It, The Way You Make Me Feel, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, Smooth Criminal, Dirty Diana, Dangerous, Man in the Mirror, They Don’t Care About Us, Heal the World, Billie Jean, Thriller itself, Bad and Black or White.

Inspiring, wonderful experience

London Box Office customer

Did not disappoint

London Box Office customer

This was quite a good show but not great I was a little disappointed that the Michael Jackson character wasn’t the main character in the show , in fact most of the singing and dancing was from the other performers who were nonetheless good but again not exceptional. The theatre itself was very tired and sorely in need of a refurbish.


London Box Office customer

One of the best shows I’ve seen


London Box Office customer

for all lovers of Micheal J and or his music

London Box Office customer

Great music theatre hot cramped

We nearly left before it stared the seats in the Balcony are really steep and high - if you have any fear of heights do not sit here - show was fantastic ....


London Box Office customer

absolutely amazing

London Box Office customer

Absolutely top class. The singing of all the Michaels was simply spot on

This show is one not to be missed I’ve seen it three times now and would go again in a heartbeat. My mum is a big Jackson fan and had the best time ever


London Box Office customer

Amazing production. Felt like being in a Michael Jackson concert.

London Box Office customer

Good show!

I’ve watched the show when they had tour in Macau in 2017. And this year, I was watching it again in their home! Music was fantastic! And audiences were excited! A must-not-miss show for any MJ fan! Recommend to buy a front seat if anyone is going to the show


London Box Office customer

Do not expect Michael in here

You should find a cast who can copy Michael exactly and who can sing same time.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

I first watched Thriller in 2014 and again now - since then when I watched the show yesterday there has been a lot of new developments it was much much better and very entertaining I found the music very uplifting and the actors superb. I loved the show all the way that when it came to an end it was like the show had just started. Well done! BRAVO!

London Box Office customer

Being big fans of MJ, we really enjoyed the show, it’s a feel good non stop party of hits but the 1st part of older sings was definitely more enjoyable, majority of singers & dancers were very good but Vivviene Ekwulugo was fantastic and deserves a special mention!

uplifting, very enjoyable, wanted to join in.

Dancing amazing, cast excellent and loved all the songs. Lovely escapism for a couple of hours, could have watched it all over again, though it is ur second time.


London Box Office customer

Perfect music, musicians, singers and dancers. Nice show, however, no real story. Some biographical facts only. No drama, no intrigues, no real play. That's dissappointing. In general, nice show.


London Box Office customer

Very classic, memorable

The Michael Jackson pop sing bring us so much memories for sure.


London Box Office customer

Loved it!

London Box Office customer

Limited

2nd half better than the first, would have liked to have learn't more about Michael's life, dancing was good, with a cast that were passionate, but this was a very limited west end show that lacked any kind of wow factor ..


London Box Office customer

Not was expected

Thriller live was not what I expected just a load of trained dancers dancing & singing to MJ songs, more X factor than an West End show, I say singing as there was more lip syncing going on than a 80s Top of the Pops. Overall the show was cheesy in parts and a bit mismashed, even a die hard Jackson fan would struggle to say its a fantastic show and I have seen better at a butlins resort.


London Box Office customer

We had the most amazing time. The staff were attentive from the moment we entered the theatre. The show everything and more and we believe everymwnber invokes deserves credit.

We were upgraded to a box, as one member of are party has crutches fantastic


London Box Office customer

Enjoy

Realy good Time un family Enjoy it


London Box Office customer

What a ‘Thriller’

If you like Michael Jackson music then this show is a must. Phenomenal show! This is our second visit to see ‘Thriller’ over last couple of years and it’s as good as I remembered it to be. I think it’s the best show I’ve ever seen as it’s so entertaining from start to finish. You’re so captivated by it that you’re not aware of the time at all. I’m not easily impressed but this impressed me! Everyone gives a top performance. Brilliant!


London Box Office customer

Not what I was expecting...

Not quite sure what I was expecting, but I dont think it was this.. I suppose I was expecting more of a play / story line where they break into song like most musicals, but this was mainly just singing and dancing with a bit of a narrative throughout.. I guess I was expecting to see the story of Michael Jackson being acted out by different people throughout his life / career - I wasnt expecting a woman to be singing either. She was good but it was like watching a holiday site cabaret at times. Some songs I didnt know - the dancers were excellent and the singing was great. But was it worth the money ? No... Very disappointing


London Box Office customer

Best show i´ve seen

So much fun, great music, fantastic dancers !


London Box Office customer

Great music

London Box Office customer

One of the male dancers were off every time, so it ruined the picture perfect, it could be more syncronized. Loved the music and the show, so I would go see it again


London Box Office customer

Terrific

I adored the whole musical - just perfect fun on a top level! Thanks to all involved!!!


London Box Office customer

Thrilling

London Box Office customer

Fantastic and upbeat would see again

London Box Office customer

Super Show. Sometimes Music too noisy.


London Box Office customer

Thriller great but not what you think!

Some of you may have known, I did not. I went expecting to see a musical about the Life of MJ. Instead it was a well done tribute to his music. Still a wonderful show...just not what I expected.


London Box Office customer

Excellent show, amazing dancers and musicians

London Box Office customer

Excellent show

London Box Office customer

Not what I thought it would be

I found most of the first half boring but second half was better. In places it felt amateurish and had I not been in a group I may not have gone back for the second half, which would have been a shame because it was so much better, visually. I incorrectly thought there would be a storyline with songs to support it. Unfortunately it was just song after song, which is not my thing.


London Box Office customer

Must see - Jacko fan or not!!!

One of the best shows I have seen in recent times and reminds you of the creative genius and phenomenal performer Michael Jackson was.


London Box Office customer

Musical

Fantastic, brilliant, could not have been any better.


London Box Office customer

Magnificent representation of Michael Jackson

London Box Office customer

Spectacular
