GET ready for a thrilling Michael Jackson live show in Potters Bar later this week.
It is not the ghost of the late superstar, but instead a talented group of singers and dancers who perform Jacko’s greatest hits.
The Jackson Live in Concert show comes to the Wyllyotts Theatre on Friday, September 20.
Fronted by Ben, the band claim the show’s portrayal of Michael Jackson has to be the most vocally and visually accurate tribute to the King of Pop to have ever toured UK theatres.
Lifelong Michael Jackson fan Ben said: “From as far into my childhood as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with Michael Jackson. Everything about the King of Pop mesmerised and enchanted me.
“I used to spend hours pouring over album covers, photographs, interviews, videos and anything I could find that was about Michael.
“Even my seventh birthday party was Michael Jackson themed. I always loved to dance and began copying Michael’s signature moves as I dreamt of being a performer just like him.”
Hits such as Thriller, Billie Jean and Beat It will feature in the show, which will also contain signature costumes and dance moves, such as Jacko’s famous moonwalk.
Tickets cost £19 and £18 concessions. Contact the Wyllyotts Theatre on 01707 645005 for more details.
