Thriller Live – A celebration of the music of Michael Jackson & the Jackson 5
Choreography by multi award winner – Lavelle Smith Jnr
UK Tour May 6th – June 3rd
Tito Jackson, star of The Jackson 5, and most recently judge on BBC1’s hit celebrity talent show, Just The Two Of Us, has just been confirmed as compere for this years highly anticipated THRILLER LIVE tour, which starts May 6th (N.B: for Liverpool, Glasgow, Leicester and Dartford dates, Tito will not be compere).
THRILLER LIVE is a stage & video spectacular celebrating the amazing career of one of the World’s Greatest Entertainers – Michael Jackson.
This amazing show, featuring over 30 performers including a full company of singers, dancers, gospel choir and live band will celebrate the King Of Pop like never before!
With dazzling choreography (from five time MTV award winner, LaVelle Smith Jnr – credits include Michael Jackson’s ‘Scream’, ‘Ghosts’, ‘HIStory’ World Tour, Janet Jackson’s ‘Rhythm Nation’ Tour, Beyonce’s American and UK tours, Rolling Stones ‘Steel Wheels’ Tour to name but a few) and brilliant vocal performances, Jackson’s amazing songs and videos are brought to life on stage in a spectacular and sensational way.
The show featuring over two-hours of hit songs including I Want You Back, I’ll Be There, Blame It On The Boogie, Can You Feel It, Rock With You, She’s Out Of My Life, Billie Jean, Earth Song, and many more, will begin a 4-week UK tour on the 6th May 2007.
The production, conceived by Adrian Grant, who himself has a long association with Michael Jackson, having published the best selling Jackson books, Michael Jackson – The Visual Documentary, and Making History (both Omnibus Press) has been over 15 years in the making, from a tribute show in 1991 to a West End Show in 2006. Indeed, the cast of THRILLER LIVE took to the stage at last year’s World Music Awards at Earls Court, where the cast performed to Thriller itself.
Now with co-producers, Flying Music at the helm (West End hits include Dancing In The Streets and The Rat Pack Live In Vegas), Thriller Live, promises to become an established stage show in its own right across the UK and Europe.
