Presented by Sweeney Entertainments, Jackson Live in Concert stars long-term fan Ben, who has been touring the UK with the show for more than eight years.

With an energetic, dynamic performance, his portrayal of Jackson aims to capture the star at the height of his fame.

Ben, who has “the look, the voice and the moonwalk”, will be joined on stage by his band and dancers, who work their way through the singer’s five-decade career which saw him sell tens of millions of albums worldwide.

Highlights include Thriller, from the album of the same name which clocked up sales of more than 100 million, spent 37 weeks at number one in the US Billboard charts and was named the UK’s sixth biggest selling album of all time.

Sweeney Entertainments co-founder Julie Sweeney, who set up the company with her husband Peter 15 years ago, said the “sensational” show promised to showcase the King of Pop’s legendary talent, with all-live voacals, talented musicians and dancers, fabulous costumes and the star’s signature dance routines.

“Jackson Live is a nostalgic concert show headlined by the extremely talented Ben, who faithfully recreates the full Michael Jackson experience in each and every performance,” she added. “Michael Jackson will always be remembered as one of the most influential artists of all time; he remained at the forefront of music and will continue to inspire countless people across the world for generations to come.”

Jackson Live in Concert runs at Cromer Pier on Saturday, October 28 at 8pm. Tickets, priced £21 Adults (£19 students and over 60s and £18 Cromer Pier Friends), are available from the box office on 01263 512495 or book online at www.cromerpier.co.uk
