Jackson - Live In Concert is a tribute to the King of Pop at The Winding Wheel, Chesterfield, on Friday, May 17, at 7.30pm.
Long-time fan Ben recreates the Michael Jackson experience.
He’s got the look, the moonwalk, the voice and songs from Thriller to Billie Jean.
And we’ve got a pair of tickets to be won - find out how below.
Jackson is fondly remembered as one of the most profoundly influential artists of all time.
His impressive career spanned almost five decades and he was continually at the forefront of popular music.
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 mesmerized 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 7th 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”.
Ben’s portrayal of Jackson has to be the most vocally and visually accurate tribute to the King of Pop to have ever toured UK theatres.
He is joined on the stage by his live band and dancers who work their way through all of the hits with impeccable precision. Jackson Live in Concert features all-live vocals and music, iconic costumes, and of course all the signature dance moves associated so fondly with pop’s greatest star.
Tickets for The Winding Wheel, Chesterfield, Friday, May 17, 7.30pm, are £14, £17 and £19. Call the box office on 01246 345 222 and visit www.jacksonliveinconcert.co.uk.
