Review of Thriller Live at Palace Theatre Manchester
THRILLER LIVE opened last night at the Palace Theatre Manchester and we were lucky enough to be invited along to experience the show. Here is what we thought.
Please note tickets for Thriller Live were gifted for the purpose of an honest review.
Now in its record breaking 11th year, THRILLER LIVE is a spectacular show created to celebrate the music of Michael Joseph Jackson. Seen by over five million people in thirty countries the show is now back here in Manchester and at the Palace Theatre until Saturday 15th February.
THRILLER LIVE offers Michael Jackson fans more than two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock and soul to disco as the cast pay homage to a musical legacy to create an unforgettable show.
Michael’s songs are so iconic that nobody could fail to enjoy singing along to hits 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 and Thriller plus many more!
The explosive journey throughout Michael Jackson’s vast career was seamlessly executed thanks to the strong vocals from, Jason Brock, Ceante Harris, to name just a few who all added their own spin to their ‘Michael performance’.
David Julian from the Voice and a home grown Mancunian wowed with ‘She’s Out of My Life’ and Kieran Alleyne (from X-Factor) had the moves that won’t be easily forgotten.
Britt Quentin deserves a mention as he juggled the roles of Resident Director and Vocals perfectly.
THRILLER LIVE took me back to listening to Michael Jackson for the first time and the strong choreography and talented resident band only added depth to the performance. It will be no surprise that the cast had us up on our feet singing and dancing along to all our favourite songs.
THRILLER LIVE is a must see for Michael Jacksons many fans across Greater Manchester.
THRILLER LIVE is running at the Palace Theatre Manchester until Saturday 15th February.
