Despite his untimely passing, Michael Jackson’s legacy will continue on in The Ultimate Thriller Tour, which kicks off tonight at the Lynn Memorial Auditorium. The show will mark the one year anniversary of the legendary singer’s passing. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $28 to $65, will be available at the venue’s box office and in advance available online through

All of Jackson’s signature moves will be revived through the choreography of one of Jackson’s principal dancers Mic Thompson, who spent over nine years on stage with the legend. The show is based on Jackson’s classic Dangerous and Bad concert tours, featuring performances of songs like “Black or White”, “Beat It” and “Billie Jean”. Vocalist and Jackson double Tej’ai Sullivan, winner of the 2007 Michael Jackson United Nation International Fan Club MJ Pop Idol Contest, will perform all the songs live.

“Keeping Michael’s spirit alive is our first priority,” explained show producer Robert Hyman in a press release. “We’ve been deeply touched by fans around the world who have gone crazy for this show, and now we are living our dream of bringing it home to the States.”

The tour will make its way to Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday before making its way to New York City’s Apollo Theater and other major cities across the country.
