Thriller Live at the Grand Theatre Blackpool

5 October 2015

Major changes are about to happen to the long-running record-breaking West End concert spectacular, Thriller LIVE.

Direct from London’s West End, THRILLER LIVE is a spectacular concert created to celebrate the career of the world’s greatest entertainer, and it arrives at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre in October.

A thrilling new opening to the show is being created and 4 new Michael Jackson songs – Who’s Loving You, Rockin’ Robin, Remember The Time and Human Nature – are being added.

“This is a really, really exciting time,” said Gary Lloyd, Thriller Live’s award-winning director and choreographer. “Unlike all other West End musicals, Thriller Live’s music, choreography and costumes have been changed several times, but over the next few months we will be making a host of changes at once. We are introducing lots of new production elements, new video film sequences and some rather special visual effects to ensure the show looks stunning and to keep it up to date. When Thriller Live first opened in the West End at the Lyric Theatre in January 2009, it was definitely cutting edge. We have since refreshed the show several times but now it is getting enhanced production values to ensure our show is really eye-popping! Michael Jackson always put on thrilling live arena shows when he toured the world. He used magic and stage illusion and the latest technology to surprise his fans. The challenge to Thriller Live’s creative team is to try and recreate and capture that sense of ground-breaking dancing, singing and stage magic in a traditional theatre. Six months into our record-breaking 7-year run in the West End we aim to once again set the bar high in terms of what a West End audience will see, hear and experience.”

Seen by over 2.5 million people in over 26 countries, THRILLER LIVE continues to moonwalk around the world, taking you on a visual, audio and electrifying journey through the magic of Michael’s 45 year musical history.

Experience over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco in a show that pays homage Jackson’s legendary live performances and innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion in a show that you will never forget.

Expect your favourite songs delivered by an exceptionally talented cast and band, 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!

Andrew Howard, Marketing Manager at the Grand Theatre said,

“We are delighted to announce that the incredibly popular THRILLER LIVE will return to us this Autumn, direct from London’s West End. The production is always a firm favourite with audiences and we look forward to welcoming the company back to The Grand this year.”
