Jackson show to go on world tour

Thriller stage show

Thriller Live, a stage show celebrating Michael Jackson's music, is to go on a world tour.

The show has been on tour in the UK since 2006, and is currently in the middle of a successful run of shows at the Lyric Theatre in London.

That run will continue until January next year. The world tour will feature different performers and will start in Germany on July 21.

It will go on to countries including Spain, Germany and Poland.

The show's producer Paul Walden said: "Since the tragic news from Los Angeles broke, we have been amazed by the reaction of the fans around the globe, and inquiries for Thriller Live to appear worldwide have been overwhelming.

"We can think of no greater tribute to the memory of this global superstar than to continue to celebrate his life and his music as we have done for the past three years in Thriller Live."
