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.

FAB!! So much energy both he singers and dancers

London Box Office customer

Excellent theatre

Grest music and dancing


London Box Office customer

Great experience

London Box Office customer

Memorable and pleasurable

Get there on time as the show starts on time. I would recommend you book seats a least 5 rows away from stage. The theatre was surprisingly smaller than I expected. Good accessibility to the loos. Thriller Live was fantastic from start to finish. Everyone of the actors and singers were really professional and dramatic. Would highly recommend and would definitely go again. But would chose better seats next time.


London Box Office customer

Happy days close your eyes and you a Micheal gig

This show is a "Must" for any Jackson fan's


London Box Office customer

So enjoyable

London Box Office customer

Thrilled!

London Box Office customer

A must see

A variety of different talented singers performing MJ's songs which made the show more interesting and unique as opposed to a one star look a like. Dancers very choreographed with excellent dance routines. I heard previously on a review the music was too loud. The volume I found was comfortable and well balanced even 4 rows from stage.

Glorified Karaoke!

The music is great, its Michael Jackson! The costumes, dancing and singing were fabulous. But if i'm honest, I was a little disappointed, there was no storyline just people singing and dancing along to Michael Jackson songs.

There was absolutely no storyline. The lighting flashed straight in you face The sound gave you a headache. It just never stopped. The dancing was hyperactive but lacked any finesse.

Great entertainment

London Box Office customer

Entertaining

Thoroughly enjoyable took me back to my younger days of the 80’s


London Box Office customer

Overal it was very entertaining and lively. I have no regrets what so ever. I did not care for the storytelling. The singers were good, even the girl, but it was a bit odd that she performed too many of Michael's songs as the lead singer!! The most disappointing was the dancing!! Dancers almost had no harmony, a couple of times they practically bumped into each other. One of the most awesome aspects of Michaels's shows were the absolute harmony among the dancers... the way they moved like one entity. I do understand that Michael is such a difficult act to follow, so good attempt! And good luck to all the cast. Tessa


London Box Office customer

Give this one a miss!

At best this was like a cruise ship performance, at worst it was like an X factor audition.....the staging and lighting were uninspiring, the choreography was lacking given the subject matter and there were 5 'Michael Jacksons',.....only one of which looked and sounded authentic. The young Micheal Jackson actually deserves a mention though for being pretty good. It was a good 'singalong' but certainly not worthy of West End status! Disappointing value for money.


London Box Office customer

A MUST See...Spectactular!!!

From start to finish this show will amaze you. The dancing costumes, music, are all spectacular , Michael Jackson's musical legacy will live on with shows such as this. Five stars from me!


London Box Office customer

Excellent show great music and dance well done to young Michael Jackson

London Box Office customer

Thrilled by Thriller

A superb exhibition of singing and dancing by a wonderfully gifted set of performers. Their vitality was breath taking and the night just flew by. Highly recommended.


London Box Office customer

Must experience

Reliving the pop legend that is Michael Jackson is a must if you want a thrilling exsperiance and being drawn into the performance.


London Box Office customer

Thrilling Thriller

London Box Office customer

Amazing

Amazing show, acting, dancing and singing. My only disapointment was the red dresses had loose threads hanging off and many of the girls had holes in their fishnet tights or ugly lines where they had stitched them up. For such a 5 star production why didnt they provide new tights and trim threads???! I cant understand it. (however most people probably didnt see the details I did in row 3)


London Box Office customer

Lots of good songs

The singing and dancing was brilliant. Not really a story to it, but dancing was brilliant.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant Music and acting - A must see!!!

A Show that everyone would enjoy - the cast were brilliant.


London Box Office customer

Lots of music, dancing and fun.

London Box Office customer

Genuine tribute to an amazing man

We loved the show The band were fantastic The singing excellent especially the child Michael and the girl . The dancers were energetic and looked like they were enjoying themselves . The person who said Michael would be turning in his grave was so wrong This was a tribute to Michael and talked about how he was looking out for others to make the world better The seats were a bit cramped so if you can get a box you will have more space and be able to dance throughout


London Box Office customer

Must see

London Box Office customer

Outstanding

Absolutely amazing show. I'm pretty sure Michael Jackson would love it, if only he was alive to see it. Breathtaking!!!!


London Box Office customer

Fabulous

London Box Office customer

Must see

London Box Office customer

Makes a lifetime memory

Do not miss this. Excellent show for any fan. Or even if you are a novice to MJ's music.


London Box Office customer

A fun night out

It's fun night out. However, its not worth the full price ticket. Music was great. The only thing it reminded me was how many great songs that Michael has produced and what an icon he was and still is. There should be more thoughts on the costume, the choreography and acts. Overall, an enjoyable show 3 stars.


London Box Office customer

So amazing!

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.
