Triumphant Return to The Parisian Macao

The Parisian Macao opening show back by popular demand

(Macao, April 28, 2017) – THRILLER LIVE,  a stunning theatrical concert that commemorates one of the world’s greatest ever entertainers, Michael Jackson, made a triumphant return at a packed The Parisian Theatre tonight. Audiences were singing and dancing along as they enjoyed the famous songs from the legendary performer nicknamed ‘The Prince of Pop’.

Following its successful run following the opening of The Parisian Macao in September 2016, THRILLER LIVE, which is the 15th longest running musical in West End history, will perform a limited season from April 28 – September 3 at The Parisian Theatre. Tickets are still available via Cotai Ticketing.

Theatrical producer and THRILLER LIVE creator Adrian Grant said that he and his team were excited to be back after the great response the show received back in 2016.

“It’s wonderful the show was so successful here first time around, and that the love for Michael Jackson means we can come back to Macao. We are honoured to be able to perform at The Parisian Theatre again, this time with a show that focuses on Michael’s hits from 1983 onwards.

“The cast still perform the medley of Jackson 5 hits which is important as we tell the story of Michael’s career through his music. And while there are no song changes, we do have some new cast members, including singers and dancers, who I know the audiences will just love.”

THRILLER LIVE features Jackson’s timeless songs and signature dance moves, has been performed close to 5,500 times and seen by more than four million people in over 30 countries. Direct from London’s West End where it is now in its eighth year, it is a 90-minute, high-energy explosion of pop, rock, soul and disco that takes the audience on a magical audio-visual journey through Michael Jackson’s astonishing 45-year musical legacy.

As well as experiencing his legendary live performance and innovative dance routines, fans can expect to hear their favourite Jackson songs perfectly rendered by the exceptionally talented cast, including I Want You Back, ABC, Man in the Mirror, Black Or White, The Way You Make Me Feel, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Bad, They Don’t Care About Us, Dangerous, Thriller and many more.
