Thriller Live - London tickets
Thriller - Live is a spectacular, high octane show celebrating the career of the world’s undisputed King of Pop – Michael Jackson, and the Jackson 5.
To bring to life on stage the sensational dancing and distinctive sound of the Jackson’s greatest hits, Thriller - Live includes eye-popping multi-media effects and dazzling choreography by the shows award-winning director Gary Lloyd, plus additional choreography by 5 time MTV award-winning LaVelle Smith Jnr.
In a career spanning 40 years, Michael Jackson has sold an unparalleled 750 million records worldwide with the Thriller album still the world’s best-selling recording of all time. Thriller - Live includes over two-hours of non-stop hit songs in a show that boasts the world-class spectacle that marked their legendary live performances.
Expect your favourite Jackson songs delivered by an exceptionally talented cast and live band, including the smash hits: I Want You Back, I’ll Be There, Show You The Way To Go, Can You Feel It, Rock With You, She’s Out Of My Life, Beat It, Billie Jean, Earth Song and Thriller plus many more!
Please do not visit this show if you expect " the story of Michael Jackson" It is a cabaret show with a cast of males and females , different shapes and sizes, singing Michael Jackson songs. I found it dull and boring with only one act who managed to resemble Jackson well for four songs If you want a cabaret show you may be satisfied but otherwise not. The costumes resemble Wham from the 80's apart from three acts, the choreography does not copy Jackson .All in all a waste of money
Not too much story telling and mainly just Michael Jackson’s best hits with dancing, which suited me just perfect. Act 1 was good but Act 2 smashed it out the park! My partner and I both enjoyed it so much that we would like to see it again!
Thought it was a tribute to MJ but would have been nice if they talked about the songs, why and how he wrote them, before dancing to it. More insights on his life and work would have made the show much more memorable. The show has no story to tell and is more of a series of non connected dances. I also think the moves were not in MJ’s era. And some of the lead performers were either just singers or dancers but usually not both. The use of a female lead singer (probably to get the same sound) was too distracting and deviates from the image of Michael J as a singer. The little boy was a bit self-conscious and can work on more energy and engagement. I expected much more. The audience participation seemed... not too spontaneous. I did not feel the thrill and energy.
Thought the show was brilliant. The singers amazing as was the dancers, set very colourful and the energy was fantastic. Would definaety recommend it, great way to celebrate my 🎂 birthday.
This is quite possibly the best west end show I have seen We had front tow tickets and it felt like you was part of the show Loved it
Brilliant show amazing dancing and entertainment and their voices were spot on
Bought these tickets for my husbands birthday surprise
the costumes were very poor and poorly made. we were expecting something more glamorous, that was so simonly 2 dancers and the one that dress up like Michael were very good, the singers nothing special
My Granddaughter and I have seen this several times before, but for some reason, this time it really got to us. We were in the second row near the middle so that may be why. It was part of her Birthday treat and they even saw her badge, and commented on it. The cast are absolutely amazing in every way possible. A great bunch of people and they absolutey love what they are doing. It kind of reels you in that you feel like you are involved in everything happening on the stage. YOU ARE ALL A CREDIT TO MICHAEL JACKSON. We will be back to see you again. Love to you all.
Dancing, music and singing brill
Awful tacky production
Absouletly brilliant, really enjoyed, would highly recommend to anyone
What a show, dansers, costumes, was ready to go out and party! If in London go see this! U won’t regret it! Thank u for a great show
Absolutely brilliant from start to finish.
What can I say apart from the performance was brilliant. The singers were excellent and they all danced fantastically. Thank you for a very enjoyable, entertaining afternoon
This is the third time I have seen and it is absolutely brilliant. The dancing is superb and you wouldn’t know it wasn’t Michael Jackson you were watching. We took my 11 year old granddaughter and she loved it and wants to go again.
Fantastic dancers, brilliant choreography and excellent singers. The whole show is songs and dancing.
My brother and his wife were visiting from Toronto for 2 weeks. I booked the show and they absolutely loved it. This was actually my 9th visit to see the show and I'm sure there will be a 10th !!!
What an amazing show. The dancers were so full energy and enthusiasm, it would have been difficult not to get involved. The songs chosen were brilliant and the artists performed them with the respect any Michael Jackson song deserves. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and feel privileged to have been there. Cannot say anything negative at all. Great job, we will certainly be back
Absolutely amazing. Would recommend it.
I was very happy with the box office staff they were very helpful and polite it was my son 11th birthday and they updated our seats . We had a wonderful time money well spent.
My wife & I are On holidays in London from Coffs Harbour Australia & we wanted to see Thriller in SoHo. The magnificent Lyric Theatre did not disappoint. We were apprehensive at thinking Michael Jackson, in London. We witness the very best musical we have ever seen. Two & a half hours from the singers, amazing, the acting brilliant, the band is second to none & the dancers are no doubt the best in the world. This is a must see for everyone, but do it here in London. Congrats to everyone involved, we left the Lyric in awe. The best ever Musical! Thank You, Thriller made travelling half way around the world worthwhile just on its own.
Very good show and very well planned out. Already been twice.
Wonderful evening with a lot of fun. Impressive and motivated cast.
Thought the show had peaked after the first 10 minutes. However, things just continued to get better and better. With a great performance from the entire cast. A thoroughly entertaining show, a Thriller!
What a show it was! Blew me off my seat! Very motivating! So much energy. What a fantastic group!
The musical was very entertaining and fun. The only reason I didn't give it a five is because the best lead singers were a woman singing the falsetto & a white guy with the best vocals. Seats were great based on the price.
I was disappointed with a few things - there was minimal commentary about his life, or context for each segway into the next album. There was a female singer, although quite good, not really the right voice to represent MJ. There wasn't enough of the primary MJ character, should have been less of the other 3. Again they were good, but I thought that the show was about MJ.
Fantastic show a must see
Wonderful,brilliant heartwarming , exceptional. A real party involving all the audience the cast are brilliant a magical afternoon This is the fourth time l have seen this show, can't wait for the next time. Michael Jackson lives on in his music .
The show was amazing. Our theatre experience was spoilt by an over reactive theatre employee. We had consistent interruptions by her telling our children to sit down and keep still. We had paid premium prices of over £400 and the unnecessary reaction ruined the whole performance.
I am an old school fan and my 6 year old loved thriller, he enjoyed the entire show and insisted on moonwalking back to the hotel. Fortunately it had rained whilst we were in the theater so he had good glide! Great show fully recommend
Great show however there were young children in the audience.. the female dancers were very erotic at points which I don’t remember MJ having ? I think the dancers seriously need toning down a notch ... no slut drops or legs so far apart you can see there breakfast!!!!
The show was brilliant, excellent music, dancing and interactive with the crowd. Loved it
I enjoyed the show a lot, the led female singer was fantastic as was the little boy who played Michael when he was in the Jackson 5. I thought it would be an imitation of Michael Jackson throughout so I was a bit disappointed many scenes were a group of young dancers rather than a michael jackson impersonator. But it was good all the same. I'm glad I only paid 30 pounds though
One of the best shows I've seen cast brilliant got the audience up set well laid out very enjoyable
Was thoroughly looking forward to the show after having booked back in December was very disappointed with the theatre it self in desperate need of refurbishment. Then the show itself was very cheesey. Lots of different MJs lacking in his showman presence on stage. The main MJ of the show only came out briefly. Very disappointed left in the interval. MJ would be turning in his grave at this hyped up production of his life and career.
Glad we didn’t purchase the £85 - £100 tickets for this performance, was expecting something far more exciting! We sat at the right hand corner, towards the back, considering it’s a show, where you interact with the stage people, we felt like we couldn’t, after we got told to sushh by the security woman with dark brown hair, even though other people were chatting & moving to empty seats .. halfway through the performance. So being told to be quiet, made us feel we had to just sit there & not get up & dance, so definitely a let down
Fantastic show well worth the expense,at times it could of been MJ actually dancing & singing,loved it so much would book again.
Great service amazing tickets totally amazing show fantastic dancers and singers
This show was absolutely brilliant the cast were amazing and the music and songs that we all know were sung brilliantly! The portrayal of Michael Jackson was incredible and, the whole audience were on their feet and joining in fantastic show !
IT was fantastic could not ask for more
Although the show wasn’t what we expected both of us thoroughly enjoyed the show
Such a fun night and feel good atmosphere!
Really enjoyed show including good singing and dancing but theatre needs doing up
The dancers were fantastic
