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.

Enjoyed but bit of a letdown

Seemed a bit cabaret at times and a lot of miming. Would have liked to have seen more of MJ singing and dancing.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

Amazing! The king of pop truly lives on is this production. A must for anyone!


London Box Office customer

WONDERFUL

London Box Office customer

Wonderfully fun.

You don’t need to be a fan of Michael Jackson to enjoy this show. We were skeptical, we purchased tickets and then read reviews, some were not good and this concerned us but we were thrilled with the performance, the whole crew worked so hard, sounded fantastic and danced amazingly. From beginning to end the energy was contagious. A fun evening.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely brilliant!

London Box Office customer

Awesome

London Box Office customer

Fantastic

In one word AMAZING


London Box Office customer

All the hits under one roof!

Absolutely loved this show, massive MJ fan, so energetic and the singing was spot on, would highly recommend!


London Box Office customer

Better show than he gave when he was alive.

I saw him at Wembley stadium may years ago and this was a more enjoyable show. Very good.


London Box Office customer

A must see show!!

The cast are brilliant, full of energy. It's non stop entertainment all night. They make you feel part of the show. Full of Michael Jackson's amazing songs. There's a live band accompanying the cast, which is great! The Michael Jackson performer is really good, you feel like you're watching the real thing! Have seen this show five times now and it won't be the last!


London Box Office customer

Must see if you like MJ

London Box Office customer

Great Tribute!

London Box Office customer

Nice

The show overall was very good but the actual Mj dancer wasnt singing live at all. He didnt put back the microphone at his lips on time it was obvious and disapointing . I didnt know it was going to be 4 different people singing, but their was very good! When I booked the tickets I was not restricted view but unfortunatly it was when we got there so did not have a clear view had to move our head a lot. Some people was talking all the way long and some looking at their phone but the staff was there professional to tel them off.


London Box Office customer

Uplifting show

Loved the show 2nd time for me but first for my sister and niece they absolutely loved it fantastic dancers and singers would thoroughly recommend it only down side was the woman with three children who came in late and kept talking and couldn’t control her children which was very annoying but netherless the show was brilliant


London Box Office customer

Must see for Jackson fans

Highly energetic show. Really good performances, great energy and dancing.


London Box Office customer

Fabulous musical

London Box Office customer

Excellent, fun show

OMG this was fantastic. It did not disappoint! The singing and dancing was amazing.


London Box Office customer

Very intertaining tribute to Michael Jackson’s career

Great voices, great band, sound and lights. Didn’t particularly enjoy the choreography (except from the classic Michael Jackson moves which were great) and the costumes. Liked the choice and flow of songs. All in all, a very intertaining couple of hours.


London Box Office customer

Feel good kind of show, loved the music!

London Box Office customer

Have to see if you’re an MJ fan!

London Box Office customer

Great Talent MJ would have been proud

I took my 11 year old to watch the show as a treat. It was her first time at the theatre. The performances were excellent. I must say that the little lad who played MJ’s character as a boy stole the show. There was one scene that was inappropriate for you kids and the other one thing I’d caution anyone that is about to purchase a ticket is that there are some parts of the theatre where it’s difficult to see as my view was restricted. I sat in the dress circle and luckily no one sat at the end in seat H12 so I was able to move across as it was next to where I was meant to sit. I was then able to enjoy a spectacular show. Loved that the audience was allowed to participate. I screamed “ I love you Michael” and my 11 year old agreed it felt so real.


London Box Office customer

Was wonderful

Thanks very much


London Box Office customer

You just have to see this show!!

London Box Office customer

Disappointed

London Box Office customer

Amazeballs

Absolutely loved the music the singers were outstanding and so were the dancers - thoroughly enjoyed the show, wished my seating was lower as nervous of heights and only ltd seating left


London Box Office customer

Upbeat, fun show that I would definitely see again

London Box Office customer

Colourful and a complete entertainer!

Great show! Loved the music and also loved that the actors made the audience get involved, so that was different. Main drawback was the theatre, Lyric theatre, no lifts for the balcony, and it's a good climb so if you have issues climbing, be warned. My mom couldn't climb, then we got the stall seats right in the front, much better view but still the seats were very cramped.


London Box Office customer

Creative

London Box Office customer

amazing

London Box Office customer

Great entertainment for all the family

A great afternoons entertainment for people of ages.


London Box Office customer

Britain’s Got Talent auditions.

I’d like to say Cheap & Cheerful, but in all honesty the tickets (£50pp paid) are over priced for an average a best school performance. Recommendation - If you manage to get the seats for cheap and have absolutely nothing else to do, sell the tickets and go to the Cinema. 2/5 for me.


London Box Office customer

Good music, poor story.

This was more like a tribute concerts for M.J then some kind of a musical or theater. Same dances again and again, but still a good show


London Box Office customer

Fantastic

London Box Office customer

A brilliant show

London Box Office customer

A must see

This is the 3rd time i have seen this show and it just gets better every time. The cast have fantastic voices and the whole staging is just great. This is a show you would never tire of seeing again and again.


London Box Office customer

Great for teens!

An excellent show for hard-to-please teenage boys, especially those with short attention spans! It's a series of Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson numbers in chronological order so each song lasts no more than a few minutes. With each new song there's typically a change in the stage formation, a change in the lead singer(s) and a new dance routine. Every few songs there's a change in the scenery / set and a costume change. The costumes and sets are excellent - very colourful - and the lighting is just as if you were at a live pop concert. The dancing is full of energy with some spectacular break dancing and gymnastic-style moves that would make any teen think 'wow, that's cool'! The energy level on stage in the second half is incredible from the live band, the singers and the dancers which leads up to an electric finale.


London Box Office customer

Great show

Lovely little theatre. bars were quiet. Show was outstanding and great fun.


London Box Office customer

Pleasant

It was a pleasant show save for it being spoilt by a very rude, jobs worth female manager


London Box Office customer

Thrilling

FANTASTIC


London Box Office customer

Must see

Thriller live outting

Although it was a Jackson evening we thought it could have been more authentic if it had coloured singers replicating Michael Jackson

London Box Office customer

Excellent

London Box Office customer

A must see performance

London Box Office customer

Had us up dancing!

This was one of the best live musical shows I've seen. The choreography was first class as we're all the singers. As for the MJ lead he was phenomenal! Couldn't take my eyes off him. If you like Micheal Jackson you'll love this!


London Box Office customer

Amazing, excellent

Amazing, excellent, don't know what to say about it because it was soooo Good!!!


London Box Office customer

Unmissable

This is sure to get you moving out of your seats. This is our 2nd time to Thriller, they had made changes from years ago when we first came to see it & we did find it strange they had a female singing in main parts however that said she was very good but found it hard to relate too, still thoroughly enjoyed this show as did the rest of my family aged 10-46yrs


London Box Office customer

Great night out

London Box Office customer

Fantastic

The only thing wot wasn’t good is how hot it was for us and the cast needs air con my husband loved the show but he said he would never go in the summer again


London Box Office customer

Brilliant tribute

Atmosphere was well engaging and fun. Guitar solo were incredible however vocals of the actors at times overshadowed by music value.


London Box Office customer

I would have liked to see really nice shoes; MJ loved his shoes and military type uniforms.


London Box Office customer

Awesome and Wonderful experience

The Performance was great and audience participation to some of the songs was fun and tempo filled.


London Box Office customer

But disappointing

Good show but strange way of executing the songs. Females singing MJ part.


London Box Office customer

Toe tapping MJ extravaganza!

Really great night out. So many toe-tapping Michael Jackson numbers, excellent singers, dancers. Really entertaining.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

London Box Office customer

It was good

We enjoyed the show


London Box Office customer

Good show :-)

Very good show but the temperature on the highest balcony was i bit high


London Box Office customer

Michael reborn again for 2-hour show

All the seats are good in dress circle where we were seated. Show is amazing, great music, dancing, singing with all the hit of MJ. Show has an amazing rythm which makes you get up and dance.


London Box Office customer

Good show but Theatre was sweltering hot. No AC or ventilation.

Show was entertaining but the lack of any ventilation ( not to mention AC) made it impossible to enjoy the show.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely fabulous

Fantastic show, brilliant singers, great, uplifting, great seats, the ushers were on hand to help and stop people using there mobiles. Had a fantastic evening. Definitely recommend.


London Box Office customer

Very entertaining

Well performed. I liked the multiple voices to catch the power of Michael‘s voice.


London Box Office customer

Good music and great dancers, poor story

London Box Office customer

Took my 11 year old granddaughter.

She thought it was awesome. I agree.


London Box Office customer

A wonderful overview of Michael Jackson's music and dancing.

London Box Office customer

2nd time to see the show

I saw the show 3 or 4 years ago, can't remember exactly. The 1st time the show was five stars, this time it was good, but four stars I should say In the end, I had a great time ....!


London Box Office customer

Adults should avoid this show.

The homage to cultural icons (eg Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, John Lennon) and politically correct symbols (eg polar bears) illustrates the values of this show. I do not share them. The show was worth seeing only for the last 10 minutes when it came alive.


London Box Office customer

Excellent entertainment

London Box Office customer

Excellent Night

Absoulety brilliant MJ at his best great songs telling the story from Jackson 5 to solo Great stage presence and great interaction with the audience Well worth a watch


London Box Office customer

Thrilling

The show was action packed from start to finish. So much energy and audience participation. The singing and dancing were great and the lighting and special effects were excellent.


London Box Office customer

A must-see Michael Jackson extravaganza!

London Box Office customer

Would not recommend - waste of money

My sister and I went to see this show as it was our only option at short notice. We felt as if we were watching a rehearsal for a school musical. We were sat on the balcony which did not state that there was restricted view, yet we couldn’t see the top of the stage where there was a platform that was frequently used. The seats were tiny and both my sister and I were extremely uncomfortable for the duration. The singing was poor and the acting also. ‘Michael’ was lip syncing throughout and was obviously only cast because he could dance and was a look alike. The music felt as though it wasn’t loud enough as we could hear the dancers footsteps on stage. There was a female as one of the three lead singers - which would be fine in any other theatre show, but Michael Jackson was not a female. There were just so many things wrong with this show and I would not recommend anyone see it. It was a waste of time and money.


London Box Office customer

Full on Jacko

Nothing but music and dance - perfect


London Box Office customer

Talented cast & an awesome production. A must see !!

I really loved the show ... Lead singers were just stunning, terrific voices and performance. Dancers acting and performance was spotless which makes that an amazing production. A really must see for everyone and specially for Michael Jackson’s fan


London Box Office customer

Makes you want to sing and danse!

London Box Office customer

It’s a definite must see!

If you’re a fan of Michael Jackson’s music you need to see Thriller. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish.


London Box Office customer

Enthusiastic performance but theatre was too warm - so very uncomfortable in summer!

Energy from the performers was good, and they tried to really engage with the audience. Therefore it was a nice performance. Only negative for me was the unbearably stuffy room during the performance - it felt like there was no proper ventilation in the theatre.


London Box Office customer

A must see in London, no way to miss it!

You'll have a great time, signing, feeling! A must see! Actors/Dancers do a grate job, you have for your money! You can even go if you are not really english speaking soul :)))


London Box Office customer

Outstanding

Fantastic MJ experience, everything was amazing about the show!! Would love to watch it again!!


London Box Office customer

Exceptional Mid-sized Casino Show

Show is a bit overpriced. Similar shows play free in Vegas. As anticipated, music was outstanding. Singers were great and the men had amazing bodies.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic cast, choreography and of course the music!

London Box Office customer

Amazing

London Box Office customer

Inspiring

Loves everything about it. Only gripe was. Michael Jackson didn't appear enough and to say it was about him..I feel he should of shown more of an appearance. But we really enjoyed it anyway.


London Box Office customer

Family London trip

Review: THRILLER LIVE at the Apollo Theatre

12 Oct 2015

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.
