As part of Riyadh Season, the Riyadh Front is hosting the Michael Jackson concert "Thriller Live”.

The concert, celebrating the late pop icon, had achieved a remarkable ten-year run at London's West End district.

The event, which will run until December 14, takes the audience on a musical trip featuring the American star's works and his 45-year artistic history of stardom and universal success.

It will feature a number of high-resolution musical shows in an entertaining evening with many dancers and singers performing some of Jackson’s most loved works, including Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Thriller, and They Don't Really Care about us.

The performances will offer a mix of songs, dances, TV scenes and sound effects by Gary Lloyd.
