There will be even more moonwalking across the stage of the Lyric Theatre next year thanks to the announcement that Michael Jackson tribute concertThriller Live has extended its booking period until 6 September 2015.

The extension means that an additional 138,000 tickets will be available for the hit show, which is now in its sixth year in the West End.

Commenting on the news, producers Paul Walden and Derek Nicol said: “We are thrilled that Thriller Live continues to be one of the longest running shows in the West End and its celebration of the music and iconic choreography of one of the world’s greatest ever artists is continuing to attract new generations of theatregoers from around the world.”

Directed and choreographed by Gary Lloyd, Thriller Live features many of the American pop star’s well-known hits including I Want You Back, I’ll Be There, Can You Feel It, Rock With You, Thriller, Beat It, ABC, Man In The Mirror, Dirty Diana and Billie Jean.

As October approaches, the musical concert is also preparing for Halloween, when the Lyric Theatre’s bars will be given a makeover in celebration of the most ghoulish day of the year and the show’s title track.

このアルバムは2014年11月10日に発売される。マイケルとのコラボレーションは「There Must Be More To Life Than This」という曲で、クイーンの1981年のアルバム「Hot Space」のセッション中にマーキュリーが書いた曲が元になっている。バンドがバック・トラックをレコーディングしていたが未完のままであった。マーキュリーはロサンゼルスのマイケル・ジャクソンの自宅スタジオを訪問し、未完成バージョンのためにマイケルがこの曲を歌ってレコーディングされた。1984年の「The Works」のセッション中にもクイーンはこの曲に再び手をつけたが、この時も完成しなかった。その1年後、マーキュリーのソロとしてのデビュー・アルバム「Mr Bad Guy」に、マーキュリー・バージョンが収録された。

マーキュリーがピアノを弾くマイケルのオリジナル・ソロ・レコーディングは、マイケルとマーキュリーのデュエット「State of Shock」(ローリング・ストーンズのミック・ジャガーとのデュエットとして最終的にリリースされた)とともに、以前ネット上にリークされているが、「Victory」というタイトルだと噂されている3曲目は一度もリークされたことはない(「Victory」は、「State of Shock」が収録されたジャクソンズのアルバムのタイトルである)。




■Michael And Queen Collaboration Released

Queen have announced the release of a new album called ‘Forever,’ which features three unheard tracks, including one duet between Michael Jackson and their late frontman Freddie Mercury.

The album will be released on 10th November 2014. Michael’s collaboration is on the track ‘There Must Be More To Life Than This,’ which began as a song written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album ‘Hot Space.’ The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury visited Michael Jackson at his home studio in Los Angeles where he recorded Michael singing the song for an unfinished version. Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984’s ‘The Works,’ but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album ‘Mr Bad Guy.’

Michael’s original solo recording of the song with Mercury playing the piano, along with a duet between him and Mercury on ‘State of Shock’ (released eventually as a duet with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger), have been previously leaked online. A third song rumoured to be entitled ‘Victory’ (the name of the Jacksons album ‘State of Shock’ was recorded for) has never been heard.

This new version, which was premiered on the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show this morning, fuses Queen’s original backing track and Frieddie and Michael’s distinctive vocals. It’s produced and remixed by William Orbit. On the recording, Orbit has said;

“Hearing Michael Jackson’s vocals was stirring. So vivid, so cool, and poignant, it was like he was in the studio singing live. With Freddie’s vocal solo on the mixing desk, my appreciation for his gift was taken to an even higher level.”

The album is available as a 2 disc special and can be pre-ordered here.

ジョン・レノンとオノ・ヨーコや2パックなど、PBSデジタル・スタジオが制作している動画シリーズ「Blank on Blank」では、音楽記者らによる未発表オーディオテープを良くできたアニメーションと組み合わせた作品が公開されている。 現在同シリーズでは素晴らしいインタビューが公開されている。1980年1月のマイケル・ジャクソンとの会話だ。まだ「Thriller」の前、キング・オブ・ポップに即位する前である。このインタビューで、ジャクソン(とジャネットも少し)は音楽史家ジョン・ピジョンとともに、音楽にレッテルを貼ること、完璧であることについて、クインシー・ジョーンズとの出会いについて、そして信心について語っている。



■MJ Talks Perfection In Newly Revealed Interview

From John and Yoko to Tupac, PBS Digital Studios’ Blank on Blank series has taken music journalists’ unheard audiotapes and fused them with clever animation. Now the series has unveiled yet another amazing interview: An intimate conversation with Michael Jackson from January 1980, years before Thriller and his ascension to the King of Pop. In the interview, Jackson – and, in a way, his sister Janet – discuss labeling music, perfectionism, meeting Quincy Jones and godliness while chatting with music historian John Pidgeon.

“I do deeply believe in perfection. I’m never satisfied,” a young Jackson tells Pidgeon. “I’ll cut a track or something, I’ll come home and I say, ‘No, that’s not right, we got to do it over, it’s not right.’ And then go back and back and back. Then, when it’s finally out, you say, ‘Darn it, I should have done this.’ It’s Number One on the charts, you’re still screaming about what you should have done.” Jackson also speaks out at being labeled – at the time – as a disco artist, saying that all music is music, and genres are like trying to figure out if a beautiful birdcall is courtesy of a blue jay or a crow.

We also learn from this unearthed interview that Jackson needed only one take to record the vocals for “Ben,” his 1972 ode to a rat and the singer’s first solo Number One hit. Jackson also discusses meeting Jones for the first time at Sammy Davis Jr.’s house. It’s an enlightening, candid look at the future King of Pop.
