The singer will join the cast of Thriller Live for two weeks only from the 10th to the 22nd December.
A year after joining the cast of Thriller Live to celebrate the long running show’s 4,000th West End performance, producers have today confirmed that Peter Andre will guest star in Thriller Live for a strictly limited two-week season in December.
The singer will join the cast of the production from the 10th to the 22nd December (excluding Sunday performances) 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.
While the theatre is being refurbished, plans are currently being made to transfer the production to another theatre, while a second production will start a 12-month world tour, opening in Lausanne Switzerland on 27th December 2019.
Talking about the news Peter Andre 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!”
Meanwhile, Thriller Live’s director and choreographer Gary lloyd 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 continues to play at the Lyric Theatre until the 26th April 2020. To book tickets click here or visit: See Tickets, Encore Tickets, Last Minute.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com and From the Box Office.
