THRILLER LIVE MOONWALKS ITS WAY TO BIRMINGHAM!

The West End hit THRILLER - LIVE opens at Birmingham Hippodrome from Monday 18 – Saturday 30 April, bringing to life on stage distinctive high energy dancing and the pulsating sound of non-stop hits, celebrating the career of the world’s greatest entertainer and undisputed King of Pop Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5.

Thriller - live blends eye-popping video footage and effects, together with dazzling choreography by award-winning director and choreographer Gary Lloyd who has worked with several established artists including Robbie Williams, Leona Lewis, Pink, Tom Jones and Dame Shirley Bassey on TV shows, stage shows and Arena tours.

Birmingham Hippodrome is delighted to welcome Birmingham born singer Hayley Evetts (pictured right) as lead female vocalist. Best known for her time on ITV’s Popstars and Pop Idol, she has since toured as Sandy in Grease the Musical, receiving rave reviews on her vocals and performance and was cast in the 2009 film ‘Clubbed’.

The concept of Thriller - Live began with Adrian Grant whose association with Michael Jackson spanned over 20 years. After creating the first ever Michael Jackson fanzine, Off The Wall, Adrian was invited to Neverland Valley where he became the first ever person to write a feature story about the wonderful Jackson retreat which was published in Smash Hits. Adrian was privileged with great access to Michael Jackson’s world over the years, including during the recording of the acclaimed Dangerous Album.

THRILLER - LIVE is a spectacular, high-octane concert featuring a host of Michael Jackson and Jackson 5 hit songs including “I Want You Back”, “I'll Be There”, “Blame It On The Boogie”, “Can You Feel It”, “Rock With You”, “She's Out Of My Life”, “Thriller”, “Beat It”, “Jam”, “ABC”, “Man in the Mirror”, “Dirty Diana”, “Billie Jean”, “They Don’t Really Care About Us”.
