Thriller Live will be inthe West End for at least another year, as the hit show is extending its booking period by more than 12 months to Sunday 19th April, 2015. (ticket booking links may take a day or two to show live)
Thriller Live has now played 2,173 performances at the Lyric Theatre since it first moonwalked into the West End in January 2009.
Nica Burns, Chief executive of Nimax theatres, said: “Thriller Live brings people together from all walks of life to celebrate the genius of Michael Jackson and his incredible music. They go home singing and dancing. No wonder the show holds the record for the longest ever run in the Lyric Theatre’s 125-year history. It may yet double its own record!”
Derek Nicol, of producers Flying Music, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to be announcing a new year-long West End booking period to Easter 2015. This recognises the fact we are now one of the West End’s longest running shows. With We Will Rock You hanging up its crown in May after a fantastic 12-year West End run, we are going to chase their phenomenal and enviable record!”
Moonwalking into the West End after three acclaimed UK tours and standing ovations across Europe, Thriller – Live is a spectacular, high octane show celebrating the career of Michael Jackson, and the Jackson 5.
