THRILLER LIVE to celebrate 2,000th performance in the West End in October - extends booking to 28 Sept 2014

Celebrating its 5th year in the West End and selling more than 
2.5million tickets worldwide 
Thriller - Live 

extends its record-breaking run at the 
Lyric Theatre to 28 September 2014

Thriller - Live, the spectacular concert show that celebrates the music of the world's greatest entertainer and undisputed King of Pop, Michael and the Jackson 5, is extending its West End booking period to Sunday 28 September, 2014 

Smashing all previous records at the Lyric Theatre, where it recently celebrated becoming the longest-running production in the theatre’s 125-year history, Thriller - Live first moonwalked into the West End in January 2009 after three acclaimed UK tours. 

It is now in its fifth year there and on Thursday 24 October will celebrate its 2,000th West End performance.

While continuing its open-ended West End run, Thriller - Live this month started a major tour of the UK and Ireland, with the sensational Cleo Higgins, an unforgettable finalist with a powerhouse vocal range from the recent series of BBC1’s The Voice, and by X Factor finalist Rachel Adedeji  as the lead female vocalist.

More than 1 million people have seen the show at the Lyric Theatre and more than 2.5million people have seen the show worldwide.

Unlike other West End productions, Thriller - Live is not a rigid book musical with set songs, but is a constantly evolving music concert celebration. When Michael Jackson died, the Lyric theatre became a focus for fans from all over the world, who created a massive shrine of flowers, candles, and tributes. More than 40 books of condolence were signed in the foyer then sent to the Jackson family. A year after his death, a permanent West End memorial to Michael was unveiled in the theatre foyer. Thriller - Live brings to life on stage the distinctive high-energy dancing and pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits, blending eye-popping video footage and effects together with dazzling choreography by the show’s award-winning director Gary Lloyd. The show has regularly been updated with additional songs, new visuals and choreography. 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. Thriller - Live is produced by Paul Walden and Derek Nicol for Flying Music in association with Adrian Grant for Key Concerts.
