Thriller Live! (Southampton - tour)
Thriller Live! an unmissable treat at Southampton's Mayflower
Blasting off with the Jackson 5's first four singles from 1968 - "I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save" and ""I'll Be There" - Thriller Live! kicks off as Michael Jackson`s superb music takes centre stage on a fantastic opening night.
Jacko`s amazing songs and videos are bought to life on stage, illustrating the story of his showbiz career through his incredible songs and dancing. It's a stage and video spectacular- more concert than musical - showcasing the music of one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
The choreography and dance moves are breathtaking, especially the disco numbers. The brilliant live orchestra, alongside a cast of singing and dancing young performers, including a gospel choir, put on a mind blowing show.
We are treated to over two hours of back to back hit songs including: "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough"; "Can You Feel It"; "Beat It"; "Dirty Diana"; "Billie Jean"; "Earth Song" - to name but a few.
Music lovers cannot help but be enthralled by the superb cast, who make it impossible not to sing along, jig about and be a part of the show from the stalls.
Cleopatra Higgins gives a stand out performance and her incredible vocals dominate throughout the show. Lead male vocalist/dancer, Sean Christopher singing, dancing and moon walking through the show, gives an amazing, believable, performance as the man himself.
This colourful, vibrant, uplifting celebration of Jacko`s music is an unmissable treat.
