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.

Felt a bit slow

Michael Jackson was great, really took you back to the life and times of MJ. But did not see enough of him thus the play became very slow.

Back catalogue of Michael Jackson music with the expectation of joining in from your seat. What else do you need from a show?


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

London Box Office customer

Great shoe

Would highly recommend great music and atmosphere.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining show!

Good show and the theatre is small so you feel part of the action. Too much crotch grabbing for my taste though. We have seats in the stalls, right on the isle I think the first 3 or 4 seats closest to the isle couldn't see the one staircase on stage but all in all it didn't detract from the experience.


London Box Office customer

Dancing and vocals were brilliant

Adele cancelled on us so we needed to cheer ourselves up. We booked Thriller last minute. It made us laugh and we sang along to all the songs... it was awesome!


London Box Office customer

Thriller to the rescue

After another show being cancelled , my wife was able to get tickets to the show, a full house, a great cast, all the audience up and dancing at the last section of the show, a really enjoyable evening, dancers and singers top class, thank you for making a great weekend, That was nearly a nightmare.


London Box Office customer

Great family show

Excellent show fun packed nite superb


London Box Office customer

Great location, good facilities, clean and overall I would definitely return.

Third time I have seen the show and would definitely go back for a fourth. So Professional and it seems to change a little each time I see it. All the 6 MJs were excellent singers and obviously enjoy their role in the production. Backing dancers and band were also brilliant. Builds up to a fantastic ending and a thoroughly great night.


London Box Office customer

The show was excellent full of energy and the professionalism of the actors was magnificent. Would recommend to all visiting London and looking to book a west end show to see this one.

Must for Michael Jackson fans

A must see for Michael Jackson fans, fabulous singing and dancing. Michael through the ages. Can't fault the show as a singing and dancing show. Only negative ok would prefer songs to be incorporating into some kind of story but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Great dancing!

If you like dancing, this is the show for you! The dancers were energetic & gave us a great show! We were disappointed there was not acting that talked about MJ's life. It was a good show, but 100% singing and dancing.


London Box Office customer

A real Thriller

A hot day but hotter with action.....a real Thriller....excellent show...fantastic cast


London Box Office customer

A bit disappointing

6 different people playing Jackson - obviously difficult to get one person who can do it all. It was really just a concert, no story whatsoever. It was loosely in chronological order but frustratingly jumped back and forth. The show really lacked a Michael Jackson. Nevertheless very talented singers and dancers.


London Box Office customer

A good show

London Box Office customer

Micheal lives

London Box Office customer

Singing could have been better

Still enjoyable though, especially for my teenage son.


London Box Office customer

Lively and enjoyable show

High energy performance


London Box Office customer

A great show following the music of Michael Jackson. The singers were outstanding and the dancers kept the show fast paced with their energetic dance moves.


London Box Office customer

Fab show!

A great feel good show! A real sing along and dance feel all the way through!


London Box Office customer

Amazing show

We throughly enjoyed this show every song was amazing. Great atmosphere, singers were unreal and the Michael Jackson guy had us in awe at the dancing. Will definately come back with the family to see again.


London Box Office customer

I got the tickets for my daughters birthday, her face was a picture of happiness, amazing

So so happy with the whole experience, Thank you, looking for my next outing, can't wait


London Box Office customer

If you love Michael Jackson you will love this

I took my daughter and my wife to be for a surprise show to see thriller and was not disappointed one bit. The dance in the collaboratio I took my daughter and my wife to be for a surprise show to see thriller and was not disappointed one bit. The dancing and the choreography was out of this world, I see from the Internet that a lot of the dancers and singers what standings and I must say this was a noticeable due to how professional and amazing the show really was. It was that good my daughter has asked for us to see it again.


London Box Office customer

Wow, just brilliant

London Box Office customer

Not to be missed

London Box Office customer

Unecpected

A tribute a MJ


London Box Office customer

Must see

London Box Office customer

A must for MJ fans.

Both my husband and I enjoyed the show. The atmosphere was electric and you couldn't help but get carried away with the music and sing along. The standard of the vocals was excellent as was the dancing from all the performers. The only thing that I found a little disappointing as the lack of story. There was none. This was basically 2 hours of MJ music. I was expecting more content about MJ's life story and his journey through life.


London Box Office customer

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

very very good?


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

Very creative with great vocalists

London Box Office customer

Great music show

Collection of tickets from the box office was hassle free. Excellent show with lots of high energy dancing.


London Box Office customer

great music and dancing

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!


London Box Office customer

excellent music

London Box Office customer

Vibrant

Loved the show worth a visit


London Box Office customer

Wonderful show BUT

The show is really amazing. Everything was nice however Balcony seats should never be sold. Because no one can see.
