‘Thriller Live’s 2000th West End Performance

37149745

Smashing all previous records at the Lyric Theatre, where it recently celebrated becoming the longest-running production in the theatre’s 125-year history, ‘Thriller Live’ first moonwalked into the West End in January 2009, after three acclaimed UK tours.  It has just extended its West End booking period to Sunday 28 September, 2014.

Several world tours have seen the show play to acclaim in 26 countries, including Germany, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Singapore, South Africa, China, Sweden, Finland and Norway, Japan and Brazil.

More than 1 million people have seen the show at the Lyric Theatre and more than 2.5million people have seen the show worldwide.

Unlike other West End productions, ‘Thriller Live’ is not a rigid book musical with set songs, but is a constantly evolving music concert celebration. When Michael Jackson died, the Lyric theatre became a focus for fans from all over the world, who created a massive shrine of flowers, candles, and tributes. More than 40 books of condolence were signed in the foyer then sent to the Jackson family.

A year after his death, a permanent West End memorial to Michael was unveiled in the theatre foyer.

‘Thriller Live’ brings to life on stage the distinctive high-energy dancing and pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits, blending eye-popping video footage and effects together with dazzling choreography by the show’s award-winning director Gary Lloyd. The show has regularly been updated with additional songs, new visuals and choreography.

‘Thriller Live’ was originally conceived and created by Adrian Grant, a long time associate of Michael Jackson, and author of ‘Michael Jackson The Visual Documentary.’

‘Thriller Live’ is produced by Paul Walden and Derek Nicol for Flying Music in association with Adrian Grant for Key Concerts.
