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.

Outstanding

London Box Office customer

Absolutely fabulous!

Just stunning - you don't want to blink or you will miss something! But why do you not give an option for sound? I am a sound engineer and I thought it was good but could have been better - the mikes weren't loud enough to match the music - a lot of lyrics were inaudible!


London Box Office customer

Highly recommend

From start to finish I wanted to dance & sing. Fantastic show.


London Box Office customer

Happy. Amazing ,true ,memories

I loved Michael Jackson when growing up and bought back special memories . Everyone loves the Motown music,the show is great I’ve seen it three times .

Anyone who loves MJ or his music in general will absolutely love this show! Such an incredibly talented cast ... just amazing!


London Box Office customer

Thriller, the second time for us.

this is the second time that I have took my daughters and partner to see Thriller live. the first time we booked late and could only get seats at the back of the theatre but we could see and hear well, this time we got seats close to the front which made the experience totally different. this time at the front we were close enough to see the faces of the singers and dancers and really enjoyed the whole performance a lot more. I don't think that people also realise that the music is actually played life in the theatre and sounds like a sound track being played over the speakers but its a massive surprise when the curtain goes back and you can see the band playing the backing track. All in all, its a fantastic show and the only show we have been to see twice out of all the shows in London. Who knows we may go back for a third time with even closer seats. Adrian, Mansfield.


London Box Office customer

A must see!

Do not miss this show it is the most important one to see while in London! The performers are so talented and clearly have a true love for Micheal Jackson and all of this comes through to the audience. I will travel to London just to see it one more time! Thank you to the talented cast, the band and the costume designers!


London Box Office customer

best show ever!!!

London Box Office customer

disappointing

The first half show was alight. The second half of the show was much better. Lacked the presence of the main dancer Michael he should of done more dancing to the songs and owned the stage. Dancers were good. Lacked magic.want to see the main man dancing more, more moon walks and dance moves


London Box Office customer

Uplifting and inspiring!

Highly recommended! A beautifully produced journey through the amazing musical catalogue of the ‘King of pop’ - life affirming!


London Box Office customer

Way below Westend Standard , Not work Vegas Pricing


London Box Office customer

Disappointed

Very disappointed with the content of the show, over priced for the experience.


London Box Office customer

Great show :-)

It's a super great show with a lot of good songs, dance and lightning. A big applause to the choreographer. Good job :-)


London Box Office customer

Energetic!

There was passion and it was very well cordinated. The show is long enough and worth the 60 pounds. Thank you


London Box Office customer

Amazing Michael Jackson look-alike. Amazing dancing - the level of fitness and the synchronicity of the dancers was truly outstanding. The young Micahel Jackson almost stole the show...


London Box Office customer

A real thriller!

An excellent show, well worth seeing, Sung by various artists, really excellent dancing and lighting. Very well produced. We liked the way the band were included too,


London Box Office customer

Good night out

London Box Office customer

Wonderful

London Box Office customer

Inspiring, wonderful experience

London Box Office customer

Did not disappoint

London Box Office customer

This was quite a good show but not great I was a little disappointed that the Michael Jackson character wasn’t the main character in the show , in fact most of the singing and dancing was from the other performers who were nonetheless good but again not exceptional. The theatre itself was very tired and sorely in need of a refurbish.


London Box Office customer

One of the best shows I’ve seen


London Box Office customer

for all lovers of Micheal J and or his music

London Box Office customer

Great music theatre hot cramped

We nearly left before it stared the seats in the Balcony are really steep and high - if you have any fear of heights do not sit here - show was fantastic ....


London Box Office customer

absolutely amazing

London Box Office customer

Absolutely top class. The singing of all the Michaels was simply spot on

This show is one not to be missed I’ve seen it three times now and would go again in a heartbeat. My mum is a big Jackson fan and had the best time ever


London Box Office customer

Amazing production. Felt like being in a Michael Jackson concert.

London Box Office customer

Good show!

I’ve watched the show when they had tour in Macau in 2017. And this year, I was watching it again in their home! Music was fantastic! And audiences were excited! A must-not-miss show for any MJ fan! Recommend to buy a front seat if anyone is going to the show


London Box Office customer

Do not expect Michael in here

You should find a cast who can copy Michael exactly and who can sing same time.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining

I first watched Thriller in 2014 and again now - since then when I watched the show yesterday there has been a lot of new developments it was much much better and very entertaining I found the music very uplifting and the actors superb. I loved the show all the way that when it came to an end it was like the show had just started. Well done! BRAVO!


London Box Office customer
