Thriller Live has left the West End

FOLLOWING the closure of all West End theatres due to the Coronavirus outbreak, producers have announced that Thriller Live performed its last Moonwalk at the Lyric theatre on Sunday, March 15, 2020 – the 4657th West End performance.

Thriller Live had been due to end its record-breaking 11-year run on April 28, and was just three shows away from becoming the 11th longest running West End musical of all time.

In a statement the Producers said: “We would like to thank everyone who has worked on the show; the cast, band, crew, creative team, head office, freelance contributors and theatre staff past and present. We have the BEST team in the world. We’ve loved sharing the music and magic of MJ in London and we will keep the legacy alive on tour.

“Finally a MASSIVE thanks to all you Dancing Machines, we just can’t stop loving you. Ticket holders should contact point of purchase.”

Thriller Live is a non-stop concert featuring all of the greatest hits from a career spanning the Jackson 5 to Thriller, the world’s best-selling album with more than 105 million copies sold to date.

Thriller Live first Moonwalked into the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in 2009, since when it has extended over 20 times to become the venue’s longest running show.

Thriller Live has now been seen by over 5 million people in 33 countries and played over 7,000 performances worldwide, never failing to get a standing ovation.

Thriller Live continues to tour the world with dates throughout the UK that will be rescheduled once the virus outbreak is under control.
