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.

A little disappointed, if a young Michael was allowed to do the young Jackson material Aeolus have made it better. Like in Motown. At the top people could not see the young Michael on the screens.

London Box Office customer

An amazing performance by a talentsed cast!

This was an amazing show to watch even if you are not a huge fan of Michael Jackson it was so enjoyable! The young cast are all so talented and provided an exceptional performance. My husband and I thoroughly had a wonderful night! Thank you


London Box Office customer

Great night

London Box Office customer

Quality of vocals was not what one would expect from a west end show


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

Female dancers needed to be more enthusiastic and need to get the Asian looking Michael on for more songs.


London Box Office customer

Fun show, not the most dazzling or polished set of dancers

Great music and a good vibe. Singers were excellent. Dancers were good but not particular synced or spectacular in their routines.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

Went for my 7 year olds Birthday who is obsessed with MJ he was up dancing with the rest of us.


London Box Office customer

Great fun and emotional too

London Box Office customer

Amazing

My husband and I enjoyed it from start to finish! Cleverly put together to show how amazing and talented Jackson really was. The singing and dancing was jaw dropping. A must see.


London Box Office customer

full of energy, fab music, fantastic

London Box Office customer

Awesome!

Singers were amazing, dancers were really good! A must see if you're a MJ fan. My 9 year old has been gushing all weekend after seeing this.


London Box Office customer

Great Show

London Box Office customer

must see

London Box Office customer

Not really a "show"

Was expecting a typical show with a storyline running through it but it was just various performers singing MJ songs - dancers were great though


London Box Office customer

Disapointed

I'm a huge MJ fan and have been looking forward to seeing Thriller Live for ages. Considering the ticket price I was extremely disappointed by the costumes which looked like they'd been put together on a small budget, the vocal ability of the main singers was pretty poor too. Of course it's not easy to sing any MJ song but only understudy Reece Bahia was really able to cover the hits with vocal ease as the other leads struggled to hit the high notes. The show was lacklustre for a West End productions with no scenery changes and the dancers seemed to be going through the motions. MJ was known for his high standards and attention to detail but Thriller Live seemed to be a lazy interpretation of his music with a little energy or pizazz. We left in the interval feeling that the second half had little to offer. I'd equate the standard to that of cruise ship standard entertainment and sub standard in comparison to other West End productions of which I've seen most. Such a shame!


London Box Office customer

Top notch,great stuff!!

London Box Office customer

A must see

London Box Office customer

great show better then expected

as a birthday treat for my wife we both enjoyed the show as it was colourful and the music was awesome you got involved with the dancers who were very good and not to forget the band that played to the songs,could not remember the last time we had so much fun at a theatre. would recommend this show to anyone that like micheal Jackson and his songs

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Thrilled by Thriller Live

What a fantastic show to celebrate the wonder of Michael Jackson. Enjoyed every minute


London Box Office customer

A tad disappointing

We love MJ and if the whole show had been like the performance of Bille Jean we would have gone away happy. However, the weird narration of Michael's life and the complete lack of storyline, combined with 5 separate singers/dancers, made the show more like a Michael Jackson Karaoke talent show that a theatre experience.


London Box Office customer

Amazinh

London Box Office customer

Awesome

I loved thriller as it told the story of Micheal brilliantly, the dancers were amazing and every routine was on point! Iv seen the show four times and no doubt I'll be back!

Good value.. Nice cosy little theatre.. Great music...

Loved It

Singer who performed She's Out Of My Life was outstanding . Thoroughly enjoyed the whole show


London Box Office customer

Shame there was no story

The music and effort of performers was good however there was no story it was literally listening to performers sing all the Michael Jackson hits. I was expecting something like mama Mia and was DISSAPOINTED.


London Box Office customer

great music, dancers and sets

London Box Office customer

Great lightening and music

London Box Office customer

very high quality, made the crowd go wild!

This is a really clever put-together show, takes you through all the hits, amazing cast, phenomenal performing, and the band is WORLD CLASS. Couldn't sit still watching this, some very emotional slow ballads and of course the dance moves everyone has been waiting for. With clever put together I mean they have 4 singers switching between songs.


London Box Office customer

Fabulous

Took my friend for her 40th Birthday it was amazing loved every minute highly recommended x

London Box Office customer

Impressive MJ act

The Michael Jackson look alike looked and danced so much like the real MJ that it was actually a little scary :)


London Box Office customer

Energetic

London Box Office customer

Excellent show

London Box Office customer

Very dissapinting...not a musical more like a tribute act

We were very dissapointed as we thought this would tell the story of Michael Jackson. However it was just a run through of his hit which were sung by 3 males and a female?!!! 1 had an exceptional voice and likeness but didn't see the point of the others. We were expecting much more with no set changes being a west end show. This was not a memorable anniversary evening out .


London Box Office customer

If you love Michael Jackson, you'll love the show!

London Box Office customer

Lively and upbeat

The show was brilliant! Signing from beginning to end. A must see for anyone who likes Michael Jackson!


London Box Office customer

Good show

Overall the show was enjoyable..the acting was poor and it lacks a story line.


London Box Office customer

Stunning, loved every second of it !!!

Absolutely stunning, jaw dropping from the very first minute. Michael's music, amazing singers, dancers, entertainers...such a great experience. Thank you for such an amazing performance, it was always my dream to go to Jackson's concert, didn't get a chance to see him live but the show made my dream come true.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

Liked the music. Very good dancing. Would have liked to have seen more of the "Michael Jackson" impersonator. Didn't like 4 leads swapping the M J character. The 4 leads were not strong enough and hard to hear. The kid who played him as a kid was cute but nervous and not at all the character that Jackson was.


London Box Office customer

Sensational

Sensational talented singers, dancers and actors. Definitely recommend this show.


London Box Office customer

Awesome time

London Box Office customer

Brilliant

London Box Office customer

A must see

Fantastic show my second time and would go again but not in seats we were in.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic show.

Thriller Live is a truly fantastic and memorable show. The singing of MJ's songs by the cast was excellent and the dancing is really spot on incorporating all of MJ's classical chreography. The female lead Angelica has a beautiful voice. I enjoyed the show so much I saw it twice in a row. MJ would be proud of this show. Highly recommended for all ages.


London Box Office customer

Best show I've been to

Everything was great.


London Box Office customer

superb music

London Box Office customer

Amazzzzing!!!

Fantastic Show. Amazing actors/singers. Lyric Theatre is a great venue - small & intimate. Would love to see again.

Bloody good show whato

Review: THRILLER LIVE at the Apollo Theatre

12 Oct 2015 in Reviews

Thriller Live As a Michael Jackson fan I was intrigued how the evening would pan out, hoping it wouldn’t just be a concert with carbon copy Michael Jacksons.

I needn't have worried.
