    Thriller Enters Seventh Year In The West End – Tito Jackson And Show Producers Speak About Its Success

    The West End production of Thriller Live will celebrate tonight as it enters its seventh year in the West End by breaking more records.

    Tito Jackson, who attended opening night at the Lyric Theatre in 2009 and has seen the show several times since with the rest of the Jackson brothers, has this week been speaking to the world’s press about the global success of Thriller Live.

    He said: “It makes me feel very proud to see a show of this magnitude. It captures the personality of my brother, Michael. We always get new fans and new generations. One of the beautiful things about my brother’s career is its longevity and the multiple generations of fans who enjoy it. His music has lived a long time, the songs are evergreen and will last forever.”

    Thriller Live recently became the 20th longest running musical in the history of the West End. This Sunday (25th January) the cast will perform their 2,530th show at the Lyric Theatre and overtake the record set by Grease to rise to 19th position on the chart. On Sunday 12th April Thriller Live will pass the original 1960 production of Oliver! (at 2,618 performances) to take 18th position.

    Producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol said in a statement: “January 22, 2015 is yet another amazing milestone in the history of our show. It is only truly exceptional shows that run this long in the West End and we are very grateful to the fans of Michael Jackson and West End theatre audiences who have taken the show to their hearts.

    “It is an honour for us to keep the music of Michael Jackson alive and bring it to the next generation of theatregoers. Michael Jackson was known as a perfectionist and we constantly strive to ensure that Thriller Live, celebrating the genius of his songwriting, ground breaking live performances and trend-setting dance moves, is the very best experience it can be for his fans and music lovers worldwide. Unlike other West End shows Thriller Live is constantly evolving and we have exciting plans for 2015 with the introduction of some new material and additional special effects added.”

    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. The production recently extended its booking period at the Lyric Theatre to 6th September 2015.

    Thriller Live West End cast fundraise for Red Nose Day

    February 17, 2015 by Neil Cheesman
    Thriller Live Red Nose Day



    The good news just keeps on coming at Thriller Live – the acclaimed West End show is extending its booking period to 17 April 2016!

    And the hard-working cast are celebrating by looking to smash their own records for charity collections at the Lyric Theatre by fundraising for two weeks for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.

    Just last month Thriller Live celebrated the start of a record-breaking 7th year in the West End. On January 25, with its 2,530th show at the Lyric Theatre, Thriller Live became the 19th longest running musical in the history of the West End. And on Sunday April 12, Thriller Live will overtake Oliver! to take the coveted 18th position.

    Producers Paul Walden & Derek Nicol said in a statement today: “We are thrilled that Thriller Live goes from strength to strength, setting new records and passing even more impressive West End milestones and we are looking forward to another year at the Lyric Theatre. It is such a feel-good show that it’s a feature of our celebration of the music and dance moves of Michael Jackson that our audiences are usually up on their feet dancing in the aisles by the end of the show. We now want them to encourage them to dig into their pockets and give as much as to Comic Relief as they can as our cast do bucket collections at the theatre exits. Michael Jackson dedicated much of his life to helping those less fortunate in the world and we believe that Comic Relief through their work around the globe are carrying on that great and worthy tradition.”

    Previous charitable fundraising at Thriller Live included one amazing night when soul legend Macy Gray, R&B stars Stooshe and X Factor winner Joe McEldery all performed MJ songs in the show alongside a moonwalking Pudsey the Bear for BBC1’s Children in Need.

    Thriller Live continues to set and break records and visit new territories around the globe. It has performed to standing ovations in 28 countries from South Korea to Norway, and South America to China. The latest world tour is currently playing in Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia for the first time – the 29th, 30st and 31st countries to present it.
