The King’s Theatre Glasgow – until 26 May
Reviewed by Linda McLaughlan
The King of Pop lives on through the amazing stage performances of an exceptionally talented cast of Thriller Live.
Following the life and music Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five the audience is taken on a musical tour of the hits and songs that generations of fans have grown up with since 1967. The show took us through hits such as “I want you back” “ABC” “Blame it on the Boogie”
My personal favourite was sang by the amazing vocals of Rory Taylor who gave the song incredible justice with his haunting version of a Jackson Classic. The other vocalist who performed Michael’s hits included Britt Quentin, Shaquille Maurice Hemmans and Adriana Louise surrounding by talented dancers who brought many of the famous Jackson dance moves to an excited audience.
Dance moves such as the moon walk brought cheers and applause from the audience who were on their feet throughout the night singing and dancing to many of the familiar tunes.
Looking around the theatre it was evident that there is no age limit that hasn’t been introduced to Motown, Pop , Rock and R & B through the talents of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5.
Taken from us at the age of 50 Michael will forever live on and his Classics such as “Billie Jean, Thriller and the Earth Song” will forever be remembered by the talents of tonight performers on stage at The King’s Theatre.
This is a show that everyone should take the opportunity to see and enjoy as it will bring joy and music to everyone
