We absolutely loved this, but we felt it warranted a bigger venue and budget where you could really exploit the amazing videos the MJ did. The singers/dancers were amazing, i couldn’t take my eyes off Mari...gorgeous! Well done all.
An amazing tribute to Jackson. Full of energy and all the hits. A truly spectacular performance. If you closed your eyes you would think it was Jackson himself, and the dance moves......phenomenal
Went with a friend. Really enjoyed the show but was disappointed that all it was songs of Michael Jackson, no story line really. If you like his music then it is a must see but don’t expect anything else.
I saw Thriller Live yesterday for the 10th time and yes I absolutely love it 😁 amazing talented singers, dancers and musicians, I am seeing it again next Saturday and again in November and will keep going until it ends (hopefully it won’t ever end 😂) ❤️❤️
Thrilled us, we loved it Talented cast, went on musical journey. Mood changing 🎶💕
Fantastic day out and amazing show. We came for my Sons 11th Birthday treat and he thoroughly enjoyed it (as did we).
Wat an amazing show wiv amazing cast and band. We’ve seen this show 11 times now and can’t wait to go again. Truly amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have seen this show a few times now and it never disappoints, Love the show from start to finish, and if honest I have a full on crush on Haydon, he has a Beautiful face.
The first half covered the early years and was a bit slow the young MJ was good, after the break things livened up with Bad and Thriller
Myself and 4 colleagues went to see thriller and had been reading all of the reviews. I went with an open mind, we were all amazed at how good the show was. The vocals were brilliant and the dancers had such energy and passion. Worth seeing and a great evening out.
Really disappointing. At the very least from the connotations of the marketing poster I would expect the dancers to straighten their arms. Considering consulting the trades description act for misleading advertisement! First rule of acting; don’t turn your back to the stage!! First rules of costume; make them fit the actors and don’t raid a school dressing up box. Maybe it was Notting Hill Carnival that took it out of them the night before but I saw a few STOP dancing entirely on some ensemble pieces and joining in where they felt like it. The voices were impressive on the whole and the main dancer was in time and had some good moves. But, if the show not only doesn’t honour some of these great hits but barely resembles the quality of a secondary school production then DONT SHOW IT. An insult to our king.
Excellent show. We enjoy it
First half was good. Second half was amazing
Cracking time will recommend
Easy way to purchase ticket and the performance was amazing
I saw Thriller Live yesterday for the 9th time (that’s how much I love it) a fantastic brilliant tribute to the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Amazing cast and crew. I have booked to go again next month for the 10th time and will just keep going back, it’s the best show I have ever seen 😊❤️❤️
A fab night with the family enjoying the singing, dancing and music from Michael Jackson. Great night
All dancers and singers were amazing especially : Wayne, Vivienne, florivado, david and oskarino!!! Energy energy energy ! I dont know how they all kept up the amazing entertainment. Vivienne sounds exactly like michael Jackson. Would watch him again ! Choreography for dirty diana was excellent.
The performance was excellent. I would add more known songs though. Additionaly, when there is a very lively and particular if style MuchaeJackson i would choose a person who is able tomake thise characteristic shouts: billy jean was good as dancing but the person singing needs to be more lively and expressive in this song. When a shout needs to be made, it needs to be loud and expressive and the person performing made shouts as having no breakfast, very weak and feeble sounds Overally great musical Thanks and cingrats
Absolutely thrilling.....would highly recommend watching. Stunning vocalists and extremely entertaining!!!
defo worth going to see . you won't be disappointed. more singing and dancing. so it was mainly the history of his music than actual scenes being acted out . but I thoughly enjoyed it from start to finish .
I was amazed at the talent of the performers! Every one of them was incredible in every aspect! Very very impressive and so enjoyable!
My friend and I were ready for a swinging night where we would leave with a big smile on our faces, which is exactly what happened! All dancers/singers showed MJ's biggest hits at a high pace with a really high level of performance. They also did a really good job at the imitation of MJ, which made you believe that you were in a real MJ show for a second. People who expect a musical should not go, since it is really about his music and not about a certain story of MJ's life.
Great show. Really enjoyed it.
Brilliant show left there buzzing!
The performers are so passionate about what they do and it really shines during the show. Took my sister for her 18th and she absolutely loved it, calling it "the best day of her life" :p. Honestly worth every penny and we will definitely be going back with more friends and family.
All performers gave 100%. Great show would recommend.
It is not thriller live. It is a medley of songs with poor production and a very small cast of Michael Jackson impersonators (voice). Then a man who dances like him who doesn’t sing and weird commentary in between. It was a little like a butlins show. If you say it’s thriller live maybe sing that first and Reina this the music video don’t leave it until last. Michael Jackson could have sang that 2 hour show on his own and it took you five people to have a go at karaoke.
I went to see Thriller Live with my husband and sons aged 23 and 17. We were all blown away with how entertaining and professional this show was! Excellent vocals, dancing and narration. Definitely not MJ Karaoke! Thoroughly recommend whether you’re a fan or not!
This is a very good musical , the dancing and singing are first class, And full of Michael Jackson hits
The performance of the band(!) singers and dancers was top, especially the breakdancing, moonwalk and the young Micheal. Various stages of Micheal's career were portrayed well and in the end his positivity shown through. The show had an authentic feel and choreography was faultless. The audience were all into it which contributed to the feelgood atmosphere.
Action packed from start to finish! Didn’t know where to look as all singers, dancers and band members were amazing.
Had a fabulous night boogying to all my fave classic MJ tracks. We remained seated and only got up when cast told us to, which was a good idea -Meant there wasn't an issue with seated people being able to see throughout performance. Singers were fab. Energy was great! Performance only slightly spoiled by drunken idiots in adjacent seats who slurred loudly throughout show and tried to take photos despite several warnings from security. Should have been chucked out after third warning!! Keep your phones switched off, don't take photos and enjoy this fantastic journey back to your youth!!
Fantastic show, wonderful singing and dancing. You do realise you could have had us all dancing withi 10 minutes of the show starting.
Brilliant cast , singers and dancers. Fantastic band. All round feel good show.
What a good show. Really captures the essence of Michael's music and what a great entertainer he was
I thought the show was very good all the performers had a smile on their face’s all through the show. Me and my granddaughter really enjoyed it Surinder
Well woeth seeing supwrb entertainment such talent great experience
Absolutely fantastic, will book to go again. I had booked this as an anniversary present for my husband, quite iconic as Michael Jackson died 2 days before our wedding. We both loved the show.
So disappointed! This was a surprise for my daughters. A lot of money on a pantomime performance. Complete waste of money. This is just a few X factor rejects attempting to sing MJ songs. It didn’t make sense. Expecting to see someone sing and dance like MJ. Instead different singers with some dancers in the back ground! Very bizarre! Plus a women singing MJ? Why? The dancers were tired and worn! You could see the boredom on their faces plus the costumes! Wow! Dated is an understatement. All old falling apart or not fitted.! If you go to London for west end. Do not see this. If you want to pay mega money for a karaoke night then go ahead!
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
