Thriller Live announces major changes & new tour

More major changes are being made to the West End production of Thriler Live

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

Gary Lloyd (Thriller's director and choreographer) said: "This is a really, really exciting time. 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 groundbreaking 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."

All the new elements will be in place by October, when Thriller Live will launch a new ten month tour the UK and Europe. The tour will incorporate all the new elements from its West End counterpart. 

Thriller Live is currently booking in the West End to June 2016. The show continues to set and break records and play new territories around the globe. To date it has now performed everywhere from South Korea to Norway, South America to China, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
