Performances will begin July 21 in Munich, Germany for a run to Aug. 2. The tour will then continue with confirmed dates in Barcelona, Cologne, Zurich, Vienna, Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Warsaw, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Berlin. The production will also tour most other European countries and will embark on an extensive American tour within the next 12 months. Further dates will be announced.
The tour is produced by Paul Walden and Derek Nicol for Flying Music in association with Adrian Grant for Key Concerts. In a press statement, Walden commented, "Since the tragic news from Los Angeles broke, we have been amazed by the reaction of the fans around the globe, and enquiries for Thriller – Live to appear worldwide has been overwhelming. Against this background it seems clear that what Michael's fans want right now is to celebrate his life by continuing to listen to his music and to have a way to celebrate his legacy. 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. We held a minute's silence on Friday June 25 before the shows in London's West End and at Manchester Opera House. All the cast and creative team were united in grief and solidarity. We weren't sure how the evening would go, but with sell-out crowds at both venues on their feet cheering and dancing, the atmosphere was absolutely electric. Michael's fans clearly want to celebrate his life and hear his great music."
