Audiences can’t get enough of Thriller Live. Still wowing theatre-goers in the West End, it is also back on a UK tour and returning, by popular demand to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from October 19.
With new songs, new production elements, new videos and special FX this European tour is a must see for audiences of all ages.
A thrilling new opening to the show has been created and four new Michael Jackson songs – Who’s Loving You, Rockin’ Robin, Remember The Time and Human Nature – have been added.
“This is a really, really exciting time,” said Gary Lloyd, Thriller Live’s award-winning director and choreographer. “Unlike other West End musicals, Thriller Live’s music, choreography and costumes have been changed several times, but recently we have made a host of changes at once.
“We are introducing lots of new production elements, new video film sequences and some rather special visual effects to ensure the show looks stunning and to keep it up to date.
“When Thriller Live first opened in the West End at the Lyric Theatre in January 2009, it was definitely cutting edge. We have since refreshed the show several times but now it is getting enhanced production values to ensure our show is really eye-popping!
“Michael Jackson always put on thrilling live arena shows when he toured the world. He used magic and stage illusion and the latest technology to surprise his fans.
“The challenge to Thriller Live’s creative team is to try and recreate and capture that sense of ground-breaking dancing, singing and stage magic in a traditional theatre.”
Seen by over three million people in 30 countries, Thriller Live continues to moonwalk around the world, taking you on a visual, audio and electrifying journey through Michael’s 45 year musical history.
This spectacular concert is over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock and soul to disco in a show that pays homage to Jackson’s legendary live performances and innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion in a show you will never forget.
The dynamic cast and band deliver all the hits including I Want You Back, ABC, The Way You Make Me Feel, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Bad, Rock With You, Dangerous and many more.
Thriller Live plays the Waterside from October 19-24.
