Thriller - Live description
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.

Reviewed on 01 January 2020 by Kathryn, Essex, United Kingdom
Average at best. Random mix of classic hits but this show misses the mark. Strange collection of 4 MJ leads with some dubious vocals. Setting looks like a cheap nightclub. If this was an amateur show it would be a 6/10. At £90 a ticket it rates as 3/10. Unsure how this has remained a west end show. I guess others have a different perspective..

If you want a Michael Jackson tribute show then this is for you. There is no story, no acting and a lot of vocal stack being used. I’m actually convinced one of the singers was just miming to the Michael Jackson backing track. The 4 main singers had great voices and clearly knew what they were doing. This just wasn’t the show for me.

I was fully immersed in this show from the first beat that was played! This is a wonderful portrayal of Michael Jackson’s life. You forget what a genius he was and how much his music has influenced the charts. Peter Andre was superb and was the star of the show. Another time I saw this Jason was fantastic and Hayden has been in it a long time and is really great too. I can’t remember the other people’s names but they all dance and sing so well and are complimentary to MJs voice and dance moves. This will have you wanting to get up in your seat and dance away with them! I really recommend going.

We were lucky to have the bonus of seeing Peter Andre in the show. It definitely made the show more entertaining. Music was excellent but I would say it is slightly less polished than other West End Shows and as a result overpriced. All that said the whole family enjoyed the show.

This is a showcase of MJs biggest hits through the decades. There are four main singers, an MJ impersonator and dancers. Each song has different singers, theme and dance routine. There is no story as such, but the show takes you on a journey through The years. The cast are energetic, enthusiastic and engage with the audience. It’s a foot tapping singalong that lifts the spirit and leaves you in a high. If you love MJs music and dancing, you’ll love this show.

A limp uninspiring start. Didn't like the old fashioned making the audience stand up & join in. It gradually got better as it went on. 2nd half was the best, it gathered momentum and ended on a high. They need to change the beginning to a big bang to get the audience inspired from the start.

Really good evening. Loved it. The show proceeded at just the right pace and there was good audience participation. All the actors seemed to be enjoying themselves and the music was fantastic. The backing musicians were so good it was hard to tell if it was live or a backing track! We sat in the stalls on the end of a row and had a great view, but as its only a relative small theatre i reckon you would get a good view anywhere.

I saw the show for the second time last night. It was different to the last performance I saw as one of the main vocalists had changed and Peter Andre made a Guest appearance. Peter's dancing was really good but I think it's difficult to compete with the vocalists in this show as they are so very talented! I attended with some friends and they were absolutely bowled over by the guy who performed Smooth Criminal, Annie are you ok and a few others. He was the highlight but the performance of They don't care about us had me ready to book seats for another return soon. I don't know who found this cast but they are all so good that I hope this Show goes on for years with the same cast! On the funny side I had a giggle about Peter Andre's overly glitzy outfits in the first half of the performance but he then changed to outfits more in keeping with the show and his singing then improved too strangely enough. She's out of my life....one of my favourites...I was pleased to see the same vocalist performing this as his voice is very very good. Credit also to the amazing dancers......Overall, this show is 10/10 but I was missing one of the vocalists I had seen previously and hope he will be back in the show when I return in January! This is a must see for everyone!!!

Thriller Live took me right back to Michael Jackson’s most popular years and his amazing music. I couldn’t sit still. I was forced to dance to every song performed by the talented vocalists, one of whom actually sounded quite a bit like Michael. This show is essentially a two hour concert. If you are looking for Jackson’s story or other insights into his life for music, you will not find it in this show. The choreography and set design left a little to be desired as they were simple and lacked precision. However, the Michael Jackson impersonator was spot on and actually brought me to tears with his authenticity. I was moved by the nostalgia he evoked and my desire to have Michael back! In addition, the Smooth Criminal and Thriller numbers were worth the price of admission. This show is for anyone who loved Michael and loved his music.

A heartfelt tribute to Michael's legacy. I never had an opportunity to see MJ live, so this is this is the closest that many of us will get to an MJ show, you could feel his spirit. But I have to add some of the performers portrayed Micheal and some put their own rendition on it, was well balanced. Enjoyed everything from the dancing to singing, to lights, to the emotions.
