Thriller Live performance to go ahead

The musical based on Michael Jackson's life, Thriller Live, is to go on with performances following the death of the pop star.

The stage show in London's West End will hold a minute's silence as a tribute.

Ricko Baird, who plays the adult Michael Jackson and who knew and worked with the star, described him as a "master performer". Mitchell Zhangazha, who performs as a young Jackson, told the BBC's Ben Geoghegan he was shocked by the news of the singer's death.
