Photos: Thriller cast pay candle-lit tribute to Michael Jackson

By • West End
The West End cast of Thriller Live paid an onstage candle-lit tribute  to Michael Jackson at the Lyric Theatre last night (26 June 2012) to mark the third anniversary of the singer's death.

At the start of the show, the entire cast assembled on stage bearing candles. Against a rolling montage of images, and MJ's distinctive fedora hat on a microphone stand picked out in a single spotlight the audience were told: "Every day he created history. Every path he took, he left his Legacy. And although Michael Jackson has gone too soon, his music lives on forever. Tonight we're here to celebrate his life. And as we take a moment to reflect, we're reminded why he is the greatest entertainer of all time."

Thriller Live creator Adrian Grant, a long time associate of Michael Jackson, said: "Thriller Live pays tribute to Michael Jackson not just today, but every day with a show that is full of love and respect for his work. Whilst we cannot replicate the King of Pop on stage, we can certainly honour his memory – and our cast, band and crew all work tirelessly to recreate just a taste of Michael’s persona and talent on stage. We thank you Michael for everything, you may be gone but you are certainly not and never will be forgotten. Love Always."
