THRILLER Live – Mon 14 to Sat 19 May @captheatres #Review #Edinburgh



Direct from London’s West End where it is now in its record-breaking 10th year, THRILLER LIVE is a spectacular concert created to celebrate the career of the world’s greatest entertainer.
Seen by over 4 million people in over 30 countries, THRILLER LIVE continues to moonwalk around the world, taking you on a visual, audio and electrifying journey through the magic of Michael’s 45-year musical history.
You will experience over two hours of non-stop hits from pop to rock, soul to disco as the cast pay homage to Jackson’s legendary live performances and innovative dance moves executed with flair, precision and passion,  this is a show that you will never forget.
Expect your favourite songs delivered by an exceptionally talented cast and band, 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!


Thriller Live is everything you would want it to be and more. With a diverse cast providing hit after hit the excitement levels in the theatre were high.  With short bursts of dialogue to explain a little bit about the King of Pop, the show’s main focus was to highlight Michael Jackson’s music. Although at one point there was audience participation that was so much fun.


It was refreshing to have an array of extremely talented male and female soloists perform the hits.  Adriana Louise was out of this world and owned the stage.


A key performance was Earth Song. The song focuses on the awful topics that are so quickly dismissed even today. Michael Jackson’s passion and feelings were brought to life through the lyrics and executed beautifully through song and dance by the cast.


This show doesn’t delve into newspaper headlines or the history of Michael Jackson’s personal journey, it focuses on what is important now and that is the music.

You leave the theatre with the songs in your head and wishing you could see more.  A must see show for anyone who loves great music and a high energy performance.
