There will only ever be one Michael Jackson and although he is sadly missed his legacy will continue well into the future.

Jackson, who died at the age of 50 in 2009, was the consummate entertainer, a creative genius and is a musical legend.

Jackson Live in Concert, at the Lancaster Grand Theatre on September 27, sees a long-time fan recreate the Michael Jackson experience with a mesmerising, energetic and dynamic performance.

“From as far into my childhood as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with Michael Jackson,” said Ben Bowman.

“Everything about the King of Pop mesmerised 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 seventh birthday party was Michael Jackson themed!

“I always loved to dance and began copying Michael’s signature moves as I dreamed of being a performer just like him.”

Ben’s portrayal of Michael Jackson has been described as the most vocally and visually accurate tribute to the King of Pop to have ever toured UK theatres.

Ben will be joined on the stage by his incredible live band and amazing dancers who work their way through all of MJs hits with impeccable precision, everything from Billie Jean to Beat It to Bad.

Ben’s got the look, the moonwalk and the voice. It’s bound to be a Thriller of a night. The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £17.50 (£15 concessions) from 01524 64695 or buy from www.lancastergrand.co.uk.
