Summer usually goes with the ending of a tour and 2019 comes with no exception. The 19th of July marked the final show for Thriller Live 10-year anniversary tour cast. In conclusion of 10 months on the road, their last show was a memorable one, performed outdoors as part of Newmarket Nights festival following horse races.

2019 as another record breaking year

2019 is a very special milestone for the tribute show to Michael Jackson. Since January, Thriller Live has joined the restricted and prestigious group of musicals running in London for more than 10 years. In April and after 4265 shows, it overtook “Miss Saigon” to become the 13th longest running west end musical of all time. And this rank is only temporary : in December, it’ll reach the 12th place, passing “Billy Elliot”. Finally in May, casts of both west end and tour celebrated their 7000th show, figure reached by combining the number of London and touring performances. 2019 certainly confirmed the success of Thriller Live among all running musicals in UK and in Europe!

A special final show of Thriller Live 10-year anniversary tour cast

They definitely needed a special event to close this 10-year anniversary tour! Mostly running in theaters and arenas all over the world, their last show was part of a festival that brings together horse races and music: the Newmarket Nights in Newmarket, England.

Unusual with an outdoor stage free of walkway, but also unusual in the set list and format, it was one rare show during which the crowd could watch musicians playing all along. The regular 2 hours and a half performance has been shortened to match the 90 minutes festival format. Therefore, the audience missed some of MJ’s classics like “Can you feel it”, “Man in the mirror” or “Remember the time”. However, the most iconic songs are still part of it with the Jackson Five success, “Dangerous”, “Beat it”, “Smooth criminal” as well as “Thriller”, obviously.

Watch most of the show at Newmarket nights

As a precious souvenir of this performance full of strong emotions, Newmarket show has been mostly filmed by some audience members. There are 3 missing songs compared to the show performed: “Human nature”, “I just can’t stop loving you” and “Dirty Diana”. Watch Britt Quentin, Rory Taylor, Trace Kennedy, Ina Seidou and Kieran Alleyne – the lead singers of Thriller Live 2019 tour – on stage.
