With the vocal talents of Angelica Allen and Rory Taylor (runner-up in TV talent show Superstar) showcasing their powerhouse, white sock blowing off vocals and Shaquille Maerice Hemmans and Michael Kavuma bringing in the soul sound, the four successfully deliver breathtaking performances without being karaoke in any way. They do Michael proud in their delivery of the songs loved by more than just a generation. Personal highlights for me are She’s Out of my Life, Dirty Diana, Earth Song & They Don’t Really Care About Us.
The Michael Jackson magic is delivered in the form of Sean Christopher (who has toured with Thriller Live for three years). He moonwalks his way onto the stage with a slide of hand, a sequinned glove, a crotch grab and a tilt of the trilby and leaves the audience captivated with his natural stage presence.
When Sean Christopher dons the infamous Jacko costumes and for a second you could be forgiven for thinking you’re witnessing the King of Pop where he was born to perform.
With over 30 songs making it into the set list and Jacksons iconic choreography coming to life on stage (complete with sequins and white socks a plenty) Thriller Live is a nostalgic look back at the career of a megastar who paved the way for the many pop acts around today. Jacksons legacy will live on through the show on UK tour at the Regent until 13th February and in theatres across the UK until July 2016.
