Michael Jackson stage show to close

The West End production of MICHAEL JACKSON musical THRILLER - LIVE is to close after four years on stage.

The show, based on the music of the late superstar and his group The Jackson 5, opened at London's Lyric Theater in January 2009, just months before the singer's death in June that year (09).

Theater bosses have now decided to bring the curtain down on the production, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, and a new show will take up residence at the venue from 3 July (13).

Thriller - Live toured the U.K. before moving to the West End, while it has also been performed across Europe, as well as in China, Singapore, South Africa and Japan. A Brazilian production opened last month (Feb13).
