Fresh from a record-breaking ten-year run in London’s West End, the spectacular Michael Jackson concert show Thriller Live moonwalks into Coventry next month, running at the Belgrade Theatre from Tuesday 6 until Saturday 10 March.
Join us in celebrating the unforgettable music of the world’s greatest entertainer in this thrillingly authentic tribute show. Theatre magic is combined with Jackson’s own genre-defying sound and innovative dance moves, directed and choreographed with precision, flair and passion by Gary Lloyd, along with original Dangerous choreography by LaVelle Smith Jnr.
Seen by over four million people in over 30 countries around the world, this electrifying show continues to go from strength to strength. After opening at London’s Lyric Theatre to rave reviews in January 2009, it has gone on to play over 5000 shows globally and entered the record books by becoming both the longest-running show in the Lyric’s 125-year history, and the 16th longest-running musical in the West End.
Expect a full two hours of non-stop hits from throughout Jackson’s 45-year career, from his childhood days in the Jackson 5 to his stellar solo success, and from pop and rock to soul and disco. Get ready to sing and dance along to the likes of I Want You Back, ABC, Can You Feel It, Off The Wall, The Way You Make Me Feel, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Bad, Rock With You, They Don’t Care About Us, Dangerous and Thriller and many more!
