THRILLER LIVE – A spectacular musical celebration of the world’s undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson. “The Legend Lives On!”
What is THRILLER LIVE?
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]irect from London’s West End, THRILLER LIVE is a spectacular musical created to celebrate the musical career of the world greatest entertainer, Michael Jackson. This sensational high octane production is named after Michael Jackson’s biggest-selling album which sold more than 104 million copies.
THRILLER LIVE includes dazzling multi-media effects and remarkable choreography in order to bring to life on stage the sensational dancing and sound of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits. A touring entourage consisting 50 international performers, musicians and crew will bring THRILLER LIVE to life in this premiere production.
The show has played for 7 years in the Lyric Theatre, London after opening to sold out audiences and standing ovations in 2009. THRILLER LIVE pays homage to Michael Jackson’s legendary life performances and magic of his 45 year musical history. THRILLER LIVE entered the record books to become the 20th longest running musical in West End history in September 2014 and the longest running musical in Lyric Theatre’s 126-year history.
As well as becoming a mainstay in London’s West End, THRILLER LIVE has toured the world, played over 3,000 shows globally to 3 million fans, visited over 28 countries, including Germany, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Singapore, South Africa, China, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Japan, Brazil and many more. In total, THRILLER LIVE has played over 5,000 amazing shows in London’s West End and around the world!
THRILLER LIVE was originally conceived and created by Adrian Grant, a long-time associate of Michael Jackson, and author of Michael Jackson – The Visual Documentary. Adrian’s association with Michael Jackson spanned over 20 years, and in that time he enjoyed seeing the megastar entertain millions of people all over the world.
In 1988, Adrian launched the world’s first Michael Jackson fanzine, Off the Wall. Within two years it had a circulation of 25,000 and was being read in over 47 countries around the world. In March 1990, Michael invited Adrian to Neverland Valley, and he became the first ever person to write a feature story about his wonderful retreat.
In 2001, Michael Jackson personally attended the Tenth Annual Michael Jackson Tribute – a show Adrian had been producing since 1991. Michael described the show as “Beautiful and incredible!” In 2006 Adrian developed the show further and created THRILLER LIVE which first previewed at the Dominion Theatre. THRILLER LIVE is not a tribute show, but a spectacular musical created to celebrate the musical career of Michael Jackson.
Later that year, Adrian teamed the THRILLER LIVE dancers up with American RnB star, Chris Brown, to perform before Michael Jackson and a TV audience of almost one billion at The World Music Awards, celebrating the record-breaking album, Thriller and Jackson receiving the Diamond Award.
The following year Adrian joined up with Flying Music to produce Thriller Live as a touring show, enjoying success and rave reviews across the UK and Europe. Michael Jackson provides the inspiration, creativity and music that make THRILLER LIVE.

“One of the most moving, memorable and thrilling theatre experiences”, Curtainup
“You don’t get 2000 shows on Shaftesbury Avenue without giving the public what it wants: and, as I looked around at an audience that exemplified MJ’s “Black or White”, it’s clear that Thriller Live gives the public exactly what it wants. Don’t be surprised to read a review of the 3000th show sometime in 2016.”, Broadwayworld
