The long-running, record-breaking West End concert spectacular, Thriller Live, featuring the legendary music of Michael Jackson, has now taken in excess of $150million at the global box office.

And you can see what all the fuss is about when the 10-month UK and European tour comes to Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall next week with an updated version of the show, including new songs, videos, costumes and special effects.

And leading the cast will be Cleo Higgins, lead singer of 90s pop group Cleopatra and’s unforgettable contestant on The Voice.

Producer Paul Walden said: “We are certainly not resting on our laurels .

“This is brand new version of the show, with four new songs, a new opening, new production elements including new video, new costumes and special effects.

“With all these changes we aim to once again set the bar high in terms of what a West End audience will see, hear and experience.

“This is proof positive that the music of Michael Jackson is still one of the hottest tickets on the planet.

“We are privileged to continue his musical legacy in Thriller Live.

“And were also proud to have taken it to theatres, concert halls and arenas in 32 countries around the world.

“Half this amazing total of $150million has come from our record-breaking seven-year West End run and UK tours.

“It is a landmark financial milestone that few modern stage shows attain.

“We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of all of the creative team, dancers, singers, musicians and crew who have entertained the world as part of the Thriller Live family.

Thriller Live is choreographed and directed by award-winning Gary Lloyd and produced by Paul Walden and Derek Nicol for Flying Music in association with Adrian Grant for Key Concerts.

The show comes to Nottingham from Tuesday, Janaury 12 to Saturday, January 16.
