Bonjour!

When I received the email saying that I was invited to see Thriller Live, I jumped on the occasion.

I always been a huge fan of Michael Jackson and, like millions of other people, I was shocked and deeply sad by his sudden death.

The work of Michael Jackson will never be forgotten as songs such as Black or White and many others inspired a positive change of attitude amongst people.

Thriller Live is all about celebrating the amazing work of this accomplished artist and taking the audience into the rollercoaster of his life by showcasing his music through the different stages of his career (Jackson 5, disco years, etc.)

The show is not about imitating Jackson but honouring him.  In fact, many talented lead singers perform his songs; amongst them, Prinnie Stevens and her enchanting voice.

Sean Christopher’s rendition of Michael Jackson is so good, one would think it was Jackson himself that was on stage.

Thriller Live is a dynamic show with fantastic dancers.  I particularly enjoyed Dangerous and the impressive choreography.

I also loved Let’s Dance Let’s Shout as the performers engaged with the public and put fire into the crowd.  Everyone in the audience was up, dancing and participating in the performance.

When I heard the music of Beat it, I was dancing on my chair.  And, what about Smooth Criminal; the performance was glorious.

The encore was astonishing and I’m deliberately leaving out the titles of the songs that were performed to keep the surprise.  All I’m going to say is by the end of the show, everyone was standing up and dancing.

Thriller Live is invigorating and high in energy; great costumes and lighting effects; a fantastic production.

If you are in Melbourne, this show is the perfect opportunity to spend an evening celebrating the life of the King of Pop.

Thriller Live is presented at the Arts Centre, State Theatre in Melbourne until the 8 of February 2015.

 

What is your favourite Michael Jackson song?

 

I wasn’t paid to write this post but I received two tickets from ACMN Marketing and Advertising for Thriller Live.  All opinions are my own as stated in my media kit

 

Au revoir!

I would absolutely love to go to this as I am huge fan of his music too! My favorite song of his is hands down “Man In The Mirror”. I hope all is well and have a great day, Rita! :)

Nothing better than a free show Rita! I don’t mind MJ but I’m not a die-hard fan. x

Regardless of his personal life, I always thought Michael Jackson was incredibly talented. I remember when he was young boy, just knocking the socks off his fans with “Joy to the World”.

This sounds like SUCH a fun show!!! I’m a huge MJ fan, and love the song he wrote for the movie “Free Willy” in the 90’s, probably my fave:-)
