Brindley Events News

Fans of the King of Pop get the chance to moonwalk their way to the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn, for the Michael Jackson- HIStory show on Friday 4 May.

After a more than 5,000 performances worldwide in the past few years, the show has arrived in the UK by popular demand.

The production remains true to a real Michael Jackson concert with only one solo artist taking the stage, mirroring the star’s performances for an accurate experience.

The world-class production showcases all of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits live on stage, complemented by the famous dance moves that fans all know, love and aspire to do. Star of the show, Dantanio, will be accompanied by a six-piece band and backing dancers. The show features 40 different customised costumes. Over 100 hours have been dedicated to the lighting design, which makes use of 160+ moving lights and over 2,000 lighting cues arranged to punctuate and enhance the musical elements of the show.

Director Johnny Van Grinsven flew around the world auditioning performers for the role of Michael Jackson for over a year before finding and casting Dantanio, a South African theatre performer and solo recording artist who has been studying and impersonating Jackson since the age of nine!
