Music and lyrics -- Michael Jackson

"Thriller Live" is a spectacular, high-octane show celebrating the career of the King of Pop -- Michael Jackson (and the Jackson 5).

It's basically a jukebox show, with over two-hours of non-stop music performed by a live band. Here's a small selection of some the big hits included: "I Want You Back", "Rock With You", "Beat It", "Billie Jean", "Thriller", "Earth Song" and many more!

And you can't have a Michael Jackson show with some sensational dancing, so there's plenty of that too, recreating some of his most famous dance moves and videos.

Talk about Thriller — with the songs of Michael Jackson

 Guest – “Anyone tell me best place to sit to see Thriller with 2 kids!! Being offered row E in the dress circle (4th row) Would these be near enough to see the stage? Many thanks”

 Guest – “I was a bit disappointed by this show and I am a big michael Jackson ever since the days of "Bad". I thought it was going to be the story of his life which would have been great, because it would have included everything from his childhood in the Jackson 5 to his stardom in the 80s and even the problems he had later in life. but it was nothing like that at all. It's really just a series of dance routines for his most famous songs. Yes, you get some Jackson 5 numbers, and early solo songs, all the way up to his last albums, and they are all very well done, but its just like watching Top of the Pops, or MTV. you dont find out anything you dont already know. You dont hear any music that you havent heard a million times already. Its just a jukebox show of his hits with a lot of dancers jumping around.I have seen Mamma Mia as well, which is sort of the same, in that it crams in every famous ABBA song, but the difference with that one is that there is a story as well. And that is why i enjoyed it much more, even though i am a 100x bigger michael jackson fan”
