About Thriller Live

You already know the Michael Jackson story, so this show doesn’t waste time telling you about the master of the moonwalk. Instead, Thriller Live gives you what you really came for – the music.

Tune after tune is belted out, from his early days in The Jackson 5 to his exceptional solo career. And the dance sequences are something else. It’s like seeing one of his music videos brought to life, complete with MJ’s trademark toe-stand, gravity-defying leans and, of course, the crotch grab.

After seeing Thriller Live, you'll be left in no doubt that he truly was the King of Pop.

What's the story?

Thriller Live isn't so much a story as a celebration of the most successful entertainer of all time. And while Thriller Live doesn’t run through the facts of his life, you certainly get taken on a journey through music history, from Motown and blues to early indie and pop.

But the real story of Thriller Live is the one behind the show. If you think you’re the world’s biggest Michael Jackson fan, think again. Way back in 1988, Adrian Grant, the man behind Thriller Live, was so taken with the singer that he launched the world’s first MJ fanzine. Within two years, it had a circulation of 25,000 people, leading to an invitation to Neverland and a lifelong friendship.
