23 March 2011, Singapore – Expect the King of Pop on 3 May 2011 as London’s West End smash hit concert Thriller Live celebrates the career of the late Michael Jackson and hits the shores here. Opening at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre on 3 May 2011 for a limited run of only 16 shows, Thriller Live was first established in 2006 and arrived into London’s West End after three acclaimed UK tours with standing ovations across Europe. Six months before Michael’s untimely death in June of 2009, Thriller Live opened at the Lyric Theatre in the West End.
Today, we also pay tribute to a dear friend of Michael Jackson – Dame Elizabeth Taylor as she passed on at the age of 79 in Los Angeles, after being unsuccessfully treated for congestive heart failure. If there is any consolation, at least both good buddies are reunited again.
You can expect high-energy dancing choreographed by award-winning director and choreographer Gary Lloyd and Michael’s greatest hits from an international cast of 15 and a 6-piece live band. Gary worked with artists such as Robbie Williams, Leona Lewis and Shirley Bassey as well as on TV and Stage shows and arena tours. He was nominated Best Choreographer for Thriller Live by London’s Whatsonstage.com last year.
In its third year in the West End, the show pays homage to the Jackson’s legendary live performances and is packed with over two hours of Michael Jackson and Jackson 5 hits. You can look forward to I Want You Back, ABC, Billie Jean, I’ll Be There, Blame It On The Boogie, Can You Feel It, She’s Out Of My Life, Rock With You, Bad, Off The Wall, The Way You Make Me Feel, Black or White and of course Thriller and many more.
Thriller Live was created to celebrate Michael’s 40-year career. It was originally conceived by Executive Director, Adrian Grant, an associate of Michael Jackson for more than 20 years, and author of ‘Michael Jackson – The Visual Documentary’.
