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.

Amazing show!

Absolutely fantastic! This is a show everyone should check out! It’s fun and interactive!!!


London Box Office customer

An okay show

It's a nice collection of Michael Jackson hits, but nothing else. The cast was good, especially the female singer!


London Box Office customer

Well danced and sung but no story

This was my least favorite show I’ve seen in the west end, and I’ve nearly seen them all. Singing and choreography were great. But I found the lack of a disjointed story and weird song choices off putting.


London Box Office customer

Great watch!

London Box Office customer

Energetic, beautyfull.

London Box Office customer

Brilliant

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Bello spettacolo ! Bravi artisti

London Box Office customer

creative

I took my son to see thriller as a gift for his 13 birthday. We both never expected it to be as good and thoroughly enjoyed it. We liked the way the people on stage got the audience to participate. We was kept engaged from beginning to end. The dancing and singing was extraordinary and we would love to come again with others in the future.


London Box Office customer

Just was an amazing show and have already recommended it to my family and friends. Would watch it again and again. Loved the fact the performers got you involved and not just enjoying it in your seats. Worth the money and I applaud all the performers on stage and the band was amazing!!


London Box Office customer

messed up thanks to seating and no help.

Lovely show. Appealing seat position and no help to move. Wasn’t happy at all that given the price the seating was that bad. Overall the show was good and performers did a great job. However use to be a better show in the past as seen it a couple of times.

Aussies in London

Fantastic show highly recommend loved the voices and the music. Only criticism is the singers mics could have been turned up a bit. Highly entertaining loved by the 9 of us who saw it


London Box Office customer

Great fun

London Box Office customer

I was very disapointed

I am reall disapointed about the show - I was not impressed by the dancers at all and I thought that every song would have a Michael Jackson double as an actor to be part. The singers could have been better as well. Furthermore a lot of his greatest hits were missing.


London Box Office customer

all time music.

London Box Office customer

Amazing dancers and singers!

London Box Office customer

A fitting tribute

Thriller was a fitting tribute to the king of pop. Thoroughly enjoyed it the dancers and singers were fantastic and really worked hard to involve the audience. If you loved Michael Jackson’s music you’ll love this show it really is a must see! Best show I’ve ever been too!


London Box Office customer

Feel a huge respect for Michael Jackson

London Box Office customer

A must to see. fantastic music and good audience participation.

London Box Office customer

Amazing Tribute to Michael

London Box Office customer

Brilliant

Second half is better than the first, but even so a great show, beautifully choreographed with some amazing sets and great dancing. Really good.


London Box Office customer

Outstanding

If you love Michael Jackson's music you won't stop dancing and singing..We sat in box seats so coild get up and boogie as much as we wanted..Not certain we would of been able so much in other areas as would not liked to stop other audiences view .


London Box Office customer

Thriller Stage Show at the Lyric theatre

Thriller was a very good show But we sat 3 rows from the front of the stage in the stalls Although it was close I think I would have preferred to have been in the front row upstairs in the circle looking down on the whole stage for the full impact The singers were wonderful but I would have preferred the actor Michael Jackson to have sung and danced more songs himself than he did


London Box Office customer

Fantastic lively performance

London Box Office customer

I Love Thriller. It was the 4th time of seeing the show. Love the music and the Singers and Dancers do Michael Jackson Proud. Seeing it again in July and again in October on tour.

I just can't get enough of this show. The Dancers are so Energetic and Fit. The Artists sing his music & sound so much like him. Love everything about it. just want to see it again. Its such a Feel Good Show to see .The Best Ever.


London Box Office customer

Jackson - Thriller - Emotional

London Box Office customer

Super!!! You want to dance after this spectacular show!

London Box Office customer

Great compilation of all the favorites. It was fun and exciting the whole time!!

London Box Office customer

Extremely disappointing

Costumes looked tired, Actors looked tired, First half was the worst half to a show I’ve seen, It cost us £75 for eight drinks in the bar (wow), it was just awful


London Box Office customer

Go ready to party

Loved the show especially the energy and charisma with some particular stand out moments in both the singing and dancing. Genius mixing the vocals so no one person "is" MJ. Go with a group of friends and be up for a party. Loved it!


London Box Office customer

A must see *****

I loved the atmosphere and the theatre was really roomy but cosy. The lighting was superb and the cast gave more than 100%. Loved every minute!


London Box Office customer

Great music; great audience interaction; positively upbeat given the recent media issues.


London Box Office customer

Restrained

Seen the production before. Thought the earlier one was more Michael. Than this.


London Box Office customer

Excellent

An excellent show. Unbelievable singing and dancing


London Box Office customer

Very good

Bit disappointed with the Thriller song & costumes-was expecting more investment in the title track, felt costumes & choreography were lacking


London Box Office customer

the singing part could be even better


London Box Office customer

Made our day!

The show was just amazing, highly recommend it to even people who think they don’t like MJ. Nice coreographies, very talented singers. To be honest I was surprised how good it is.


London Box Office customer

Very entertaining

It was exceptional as everyone was dancing to the music


London Box Office customer

Very friendly staff and brilliant location.

We (me and my sister saw the show in January with our daughter and then booked to see the show with our husbands in March.


London Box Office customer

Excellent show!!

Loved the show, it was amazing 🙂


London Box Office customer

It brings back memorrys

Fantastic show and super performance.


London Box Office customer

high energy show!

From start to finish, this show was high energy on legs! The cast were absolutely fantastic, and the show passed in an instant. The lead female singer was outstanding. The music was as expected (brilliant!) and was carried out to an extremely high standard. (Michael Jackson himself would have been proud of them all)


London Box Office customer

Wonderful. Best music show in town

London Box Office customer

Great show

Loved this show! Really worth seeing


London Box Office customer

A definite must see

London Box Office customer

One of the best shows I have ever seen.

Great Friday night at the Lyric Theatre!

London Box Office customer

Fantastic a must see

The first half was great, the 2nd half I was sitting on the edge of my seat, the show was phenomenal. Definitely worth seeing, and I would go an see it again. The singer & dancers were fantastic.


London Box Office customer

A must see show!!

This is an amazing show! It's very entertaining and you don't want the evening to end! The cast are all brilliant singers and dancers and you can see how much hard work they put into everything. The Michael Jackson dancer is amazing! It's a really happy and fun filled night, thoroughly enjoyable! The cast make you feel like you're joining in with them!! They have a great live band playing for them also. Have seen this show at least seven times now and hopefully it won't be the last!!


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Worth to see

London Box Office customer

Show

Great show if you’re a fan of Jackson music but it’s a shame it sad in playback. A live show s’would have made it so much better


London Box Office customer

Great music and dancng

For a great time, watch this show , fantastic dancing and of course the music !


London Box Office customer

Some good bits

I didn't like first section showing early years I didn't find a lot of the production dynamic only about 14 members of the cast. I didn't like there being so many different people 'playing' Jackson's part especially didn't see why a woman played his part. I didn't enjoy the attempt at audience participation made by cast especially in the finstallation part of the show. I also found the music being played in the auditorium pre show awful.


London Box Office customer

Songs of MJ

It was good but no story...the music and performers were really talented. I enjoyed the show.


London Box Office customer

Not to be missed

We took our 7 year old grandson & 14 year old granddaughter to see this show & we were all on our feet at the end. The singing, dancing, choreography, lighting were outstanding. It was excellent value & I would recommend it to anyone who loves music


London Box Office customer

Really enjoyable, nostalgic and an amazing performance

London Box Office customer

Excellent Entertaining and value for money. A must see

Excellent theatre centrally located Well organised and an absolute treat for all Would recommend to anyone of all ages and all walks of kife


London Box Office customer

Fannnnnntasticccc!!!

Great show everyone was up dancing!! MJ for Life !!!


London Box Office customer

Wonderful !!!

London Box Office customer

Absolutely loved it!

The dancers and cast kept a fantastic energy throughout MJs hits from his youth through to BAD. I went with my 10 year old son who also loved it! Well worth a watch.


London Box Office customer

Overall a great experience

The cast and production are incredible. Super entertaining, time flew... we could have watched for 2 more hours. The only negative note is that the band is not visible at all, except for very few specific moments. I guess it's a problem of the theater not being large enough, and requiring their space for stage effects, but it is really a bummer, especially for musicians like me. During the first minutes it even makes you wonder whether the music is live or pre-recorded.


London Box Office customer

Poor views

Positioning of lights made it impossible to see the stage at times. Seat C1 seat is OK, seat C2 sees half the stage and seat C3 sees hardly any of it.br


London Box Office customer

Amazing tribute to the legend known as Michael Jackson!

The show was amazing. From the staging, to the choreography, costumes, and singing. Absolutely top knotch. I had each member of the cast directly in front of me at some point and they were all superb, in fact, I may go again before I leave.


London Box Office customer

Energetic and impressive

London Box Office customer

Amazing!

If you love Michael Jackson you will love this show. The dancing, the singing, everything is amazing!


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Upbeat, feelgood show

Took my 3 granddaughters, all MJ fans, great renditions, good dancing, shame you are not alone wasn't sung, as love that. But well worth it. We had seats at the very back in J, but moved to other available seats due to tall people causing obstructed view , row G however is a great view especially the 1st few All round good show, and worth catching

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.
