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.

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

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!!

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

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

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

I was expecting a show like “the Jersey Boys “ or “Beautiful “ with a story line. This had none. The choice of his songs was also very disappointing.


London Box Office customer

Absolutely brilliant

London Box Office customer

Good memories

London Box Office customer

Famtastic show with amazing songs and dancing

Brilliant show about music of Michael Jackson. Singers voices were truly brilliant and the dancing was amazing. Love the person playing young Michael, a star in his own right.


London Box Office customer

Fantastic afternoon out to relive the music of a legend

Hits from when he was 11 years old with the Jackson 5 and his solo career Michael Jackson was an absolute legend. The show was amazing had some brilliant lead singers and dancers would definitely recommend


London Box Office customer

Been to see this show 10times now, it’s an amazing show with great cast. I’m definitely booking up again ☺️


London Box Office customer

Lively

Great show but feel that the main Jackson actor should have participated much more.


London Box Office customer

Amazing

London Box Office customer

Fantastic

London Box Office customer

The best night I had with my dad

It was the most extraordinary night I got to listen to my favourite singers songs in a way that could make me light up and smile like a kid when it was first time I hear Micheal sing


London Box Office customer

Electrifying

It was absolutely mind blowing. From the vocalists to the dancers and MJ, the show took us to a wonderful journey of MJs life through his music. It was emotional, thrilling and uplifting.


London Box Office customer

Great show

Superb loved it


London Box Office customer

Worst show ever !

Terrible to chose a lady to sing Michael Jackson songs just wrong , tribute show means somebody that looks and sounds like him and unfortunately they didn’t


London Box Office customer

Never danced so much. MJ is a legend and the show is as exceptional as he was 👍👍👍👍


London Box Office customer

Great show. A must see

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

A must see for Jackson fans

Anyone will enjoy this high energy, professional performance! Sang along all the way through - a real feel good factor. Would like to see it again. If you liked MJ you'll love this tribute to his life of incredible music! All singer and dancers were amazing - one of the most entertaining/inclusive musicals we have seen in a while. A very special birthday!


London Box Office customer

Excellent show, from the music to the cast. Each singer has a bit of MJ and together they are just perfect. Very enthusiastic too.


London Box Office customer

A must see!!

I booked a ticket for my mum and her partner for Christmas and after reading reviews that were very mixed was a bit hesitant. I booked seats in the middle isle but end seats as they don’t like to feel trapped in and around 6 rows from the front. The feedback was that it was incredible! The performers, lighting, set, sound... everything was just great. They thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and was up dancing with all the crowd

Absolute entertainment. Wow. The performances are amazing and its a great tribute to Michael Jackson and a reminder to us all of how many great songs, performances and videos that he had.


London Box Office customer

Well performed mixture of Michael Jackson Classics performed in a chronological sequence with good musicians and dancers delivered really professionally

London Box Office customer

Brilliant show

Brilliant show. Michael Jackson fans will not be dissapointed with this show. The singing, dancing and acrobatics of the cast will leave you wanting more. Could not wait to get up and dance. The theatre is only small so i would guess the view from most seats would be good.


London Box Office customer

Amazing, exceptional, touching, emotional, boogied!

I loved it, it was an amazing show dedicated to MJ, awesome music, exceptional singers and dancers, really great costumes and lights. I liked everything on this show. I would like to have a bit more theatrical and acting part maybe take us through the year, but I really enjoyed it!

A brilliant all round performance. The main Michael Jackson character had all the moves to a t. All the singers did justice to the song. We would recommend and definitely watch the show again.


London Box Office customer

Great peeformance!

Watched Thriller a couple of days ago! Excellent show! All Micheals fabulous songs were on show and the singers and dancers were excellent. Clearly the rest of the crowd loved as did the 6 of us who went. Definitely recommend to any Micheal fans! Not sure about the bad reviews tbh! 1 tip....don't book seats right at the front. It seems just to close. We were 9 rows back in the middle. Perfect!


London Box Office customer

Light hearted and cheerful

London Box Office customer

highly recommend!

London Box Office customer

Absolutely brilliant ***

I’ve seen most of the London shows and Thriller is the only one I’ve been to twice as it’s just amazing !! Please please go !!!


London Box Office customer

I wouldn't buy another ticket to watch a show off of your website you are unhelpful , you don't reply to emails your phone line goes dead after a few minutes. I tried to change my date to no avail ten minutes after I booked because I got it wrong and was working. I know you won't publish this because it is a negative review


London Box Office customer
