Thriller Live is a spectacular, high-octane show celebrating the career of the undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

It takes you on an electrifying journey through 45 years of Michael's music, from his early days with the Jackson 5 and right through to his final solo years, paying homage to his legendary live performances and innovative dance moves.

It's basically a jukebox show, with over two-hours of non-stop music performed by a live band. You'll witness his kid years doing I Want You Back and ABC; his breakthrough tunes on his solo debut: Rock With You and Can You Feel It; his big blockbusters in the 1980s: Beat It, Billie Jean, Thriller and Bad; right up to his final hits like Dangerous and the Earth Song.

 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”
