It’s the show that Just Can’t Stop Loving You: Michael Jackson musical Thriller Live will celebrate 4,000 West End shows with a very special performance at the Lyric Theatre on Wednesday 12 September.

Raising funds for The Prince’s Trust, the charity founded by Prince Charles in 1976, Thriller Live’s gala performance will see high-profile guest stars join the West End cast to perform your favourite Michael Jackson tracks. Tickets can be booked via the show’s website.

Thriller Live producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol, and show creator Adrian Grant, added: “… Thriller Live, which is now in its 10th year in the West End… will be supporting this wonderful charity over the next year with its mandate to help disadvantaged young people get their lives on track, with opportunities to see the show, Q&A sessions, art programmes, workshops and mentoring experiences with our creative team, dancers and singers.”

It’s not the first time guest stars have joined in the moonwalking: in December 2012, the likes of Macy Gray, Stooshe and Joe McElderry played their part in a Children in Need special:

A celebration of Michael Jackson’s music and dance legacy, Thriller Live brings to life on stage his distinctive dancing and the pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits. The show first arrived at the Lyric Theatre in January 2009, where it has played ever since.

Recent international tours have seen the production rack up over 6000 performances worldwide.

You can book Thriller Live tickets for other dates here!

Thriller Live is also participating in Kids Week; throughout August, a child aged 16 or under can go free when accompanied by an adult paying full price. Adults can also purchase up to two extra children’s tickets at half price, and there are no booking fees to pay.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
