Thriller - win tickets

PUBLISHED: 12:42 23 March 2011




ENTERING its third year in the West End, Thriller – Live is a spectacular, high-octane concert specially created to celebrate the career of the world’s greatest entertainer and undisputed king of pop - Michael Jackson.

It will be staged at The Bristol Hippodrome from April 4-9.

The non-stop hits just keep on coming in the show, 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, Thriller, Beat It, Jam, ABC, Man in the Mirror, Dirty Diana, Billie Jean, They Don’t Really Care About Us and many more.

Bringing to life on stage the distinctive high-energy dancing and pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits, Thriller - Live blends eye-popping video footage and effects together with dazzling choreography by award-winning director and choreographer Gary Lloyd.

He has worked extensively with artists ranging from Robbie Williams to Leona Lewis and Shirley Bassey on TV shows, stage shows and arena tours.

Thriller - Live received two 2010 Whatsonstage nominations, for Best New Musical and Gary Lloyd was nominated as Best Choreographer.

It was originally conceived by executive director, Adrian Grant, an associate of Michael Jackson for more than 20 years, and author of Michael Jackson – The Visual Documentary.

Thriller - Live is not a rigid book musical with set songs, but is a constantly evolving music concert celebration.

Since opening in the West End in January 2009, several world tours have seen the show play to acclaim in many countries, including China, South Africa, Germany, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland and Norway. Further productions are planned for Australia, Asia, South and North America and Canada.

In a phenomenal, unparalleled career, Michael Jackson sold more than 750 million records, had 13 number one singles - more than any other male artist - and is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice.
