Auckland February 2015

6 YEARS IN
LONDON’S
WEST END

TICKETS ON SALE!

THRILLER LIVE, a spectacular theatrical production now in its record breaking 6th year in London’s West End, was created to celebrate the career of the world’s greatest entertainer, Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five.

Now THRILLER LIVE is coming to New Zealand playing in Auckland only, February next year. A touring company of 45 international performers, musicians and crew will bring THRILLER LIVE to life in this New Zealand premiere production.

THRILLER LIVE is over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco in a show that pays homage to Michael Jackson’s legendary live performances and the magic of his 45-year musical history. THRILLER LIVE features stunning choreography and Michael’s innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion in a show that fans will never forget.

THRILLER LIVE contains all of Jackson’s favourite songs including: I Want You Back, ABC, Can You Feel It, Off The Wall, The Way You Make Me Feel, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Bad, Rock With You, They Don’t care About Us, Dangerous, Heal The World, and Thriller plus many more!

After opening in the Lyric Theatre London in January 2009 to rave reviews, THRILLER LIVE embarked on a world tour and a sell-out UK arena tour, played over 3000 shows globally to 3 million fans, visited over 28 countries, including Germany, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Singapore, South Africa, China, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Japan and Brazil and entered the West End record books by becoming the longest running show in the Lyric Theatres 125 year history.

‘THIS THEATRICAL EXTRAVAGANZA IS A BREATHTAKING CELEBRATION QUITE LITERALLY THRILLING’ The Stage, UK

THRILLER LIVE combines high-energy choreography and dancing, eye-popping video footage and a myriad of effects. Plus dazzling costumes, sequins and hot pants, not to mention that signature white suit and glove.

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 New Zealand tour of THRILLER LIVE is produced by The Flying Music Company, Ambassador Theatre Group, BB Promotion and Lunchbox Theatrical Productions.

THRILLER LIVE continues to moonwalk around the world, taking audiences on a visual, audio and electrifying journey through Michael’s illustrious career. This two-hour bonanza of non-stop hits has everyone shimmying in their seats.
