Now years after the tragic death of Michael Jackson, his music and spirit live on in the dazzling stage extravaganza, Thriller - Live.
The show was created by lifelong Jackson fan, Adrian Grant, who brings a wide selection of the King of Pop’s back catalogue to the stage.
The show begins amid Jackson’s early years as an integral part of the Jackson 5 and progresses through to the later parts of his musical career.
Audience members can enjoy hits such as “I Want You back,” “ABC,” “Blame it on the Boogie,” “Rock With You,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Beat It,” “Man in The Mirror,” the title song “Thriller” and much much more.
Not only is the show an ode to Jackson’s incredible and timeless music, it also plays testimony to his excellent dance skills. Sections of his choreography are performed alongside his musical numbers by a skilled troupe of performers.
If all of the above wasn’t enough; the show also uses video project as well as on stage set and costume to showcases some of Jackson’s most iconic looks.
Whilst some may never have had the pleasure of watching the actual King of Pop perform his music, watching Thriller - Live is now the closest thing you can get to the real thing.

The show is suitable for all of the family, however it is worth noting that the Lyric Theatre will not admit children under the age of 4.
