AWARD-WINNING PETER ANDRE TO GUEST STAR IN THRILLER LIVE FOR TWO WEEKS (25 OCTOBER 2019)

A year after he stopped the show with a mid-song standing ovation at Thriller Live's 4,000th West End performance, producers today announce that award-winning Peter Andre is to guest star in Thriller Live for a strictly limited two-week season in December.

Peter will headline at the Lyric Theatre from 10 - 22 December (except Sunday evenings) as the first in a series of guest stars and surprises in the show's final six months at the Lyric, where it is ending its record-breaking 11-year run in April 2020 to allow the theatre to be refurbished. Plans are in hand to transfer Thriller Live to another West End theatre and a second production will start a 12-month world tour, opening in Lausanne Switzerland on 27 December 2019.

Peter Andre is today a global megastar with almost 6 million social media followers. When he first burst to international fame as a pop artist in the Nineties with hits including 'Mysterious Girl' and 'Flava', he was the sixth highest selling artist in the UK, having had numerous number one hit singles, two number one albums, and collected a multitude of national and international awards.

Peter said: "I had such an amazing experience performing in Thriller Live's 4,000th gala night and I can't wait to come back for a full run of shows. This is such an honour for me because Michael Jackson was musically the biggest influence in my life and career. He made me dream of being on stage and to be part of music. A year ago in Thriller Live I sang 'Rock With You' - which was one of the first records I ever bought - 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You', 'Man in the Mirror' and 'She's Out of My Life'. I can't wait to spring a few more surprises!"

Gary Lloyd, Thriller Live's award-winning Director/Choreographer said: "After working with Peter Andre on his own live stage and arena shows, I discovered how passionate he is about Michael's music. Peter absolutely wowed us all last year when he appeared as our special guest to help celebrate our 4,000th performance. I am delighted we get the opportunity to explore his incredible talent and affinity for this material even further with the announcement of these dates."

Thriller Live Producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol of Flying Music said: "We recently announced that due to the theatre's refurbishment, Thriller Live will sadly end its record-breaking 11-year run at the Lyric on Sunday 26 April 2020, at which point the show will have completed 4,705 performances making it the longest running show ever at the Lyric and the 11th longest running musical in West End history. We promised special guests and surprises to end our run there on an absolute high and we are delighted to welcome Peter Andre back to headline two weeks of shows. This promises to be an unforgettable experience for fans lucky enough to get a ticket."



CLEO HIGGINS JOINS MICHAEL JACKSON SHOW (10 JUNE 2014)

Cleo Higgins, lead singer of 90s pop group Cleopatra and Will.i.am's unforgettable contestant on The Voice, is to make her West End debut in Thriller Live. Cleo joins the London cast of the long-running, record-breaking show on Tuesday 24 June direct from touring the UK and Europe, where she earned rave reviews for her incredible Jacksonřlike vocals.

As lead singer of Cleopatra, aged 13, Cleo was signed to Madonna's Maverick label in the US. She had 3 Top 5 hits, 2 hit TV series, sang for the Pope and supported The Spice Girls on tour. In 2013 Cleo reached the final stages of The Voice with Will.i.am calling her "a superstar."

Cleo says: "I'm a huge Michael Jackson fan and I identify with him. I'm an Eighties baby - I come from the same era. When he died I literally cried every day for a year. His death reminded me how connected I felt to him as a person and musician, but I didn't recognise how strong those links were until then. My favourite song I get to perform in the show is They Don't Really Care About Us. I get to feel the energy Michael gave when he sang, when it was recorded. I get right into that zone and I feel every word. We celebrate his incredible legacy in Thriller Live. His songs will never die."

Higgins, from Manchester, is one of four lead vocalists who divide up Jackson's catalogue of chart hits between them. Thriller Live is a constantly evolving spectacular concert-style show with no storyline to slow down the action. It instead celebrates the songs, ground-breaking videos and iconic dance moves of the world's greatest entertainer.

Thriller Live has become a huge global hit, chalking up more than 3,700 performances in 29 countries and a global audience of almost three million. It has also been playing for more than five years at the Lyric Theatre, and is now officially the longest running show in the venue's 125-year history. The show recently extended its booking period to Sunday 19 April, 2015.
