King of Pop Michael Jackson is the subject of an exciting new tribute concert at the Wyvern Theatre in Swindon tonight. (12)

Jackson, who died in 2009, was an American singer and songwriter who became a global superstar with songs such as Billie-Jean, Thriller and Beat-it. He was famous for his ground-breaking music videos and dancing talent – making famous such moves as the moonwalk. His album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time.

Now Ben and the Michael Jackson UK Band pay tribute to one of the most iconic and popular recording artists of all time. Ben, his dancers and musicians, give Jackson’s sounds and styles new life in this lavish production.

Jackson’s career spanned nearly five decades of music and he continued to develop and innovate over the course of his life. Now Ben recreates the Michael Jackson experience across those years, with an accurate rendition of all our favourite songs.

Reckoned to be the most accurate and exciting tribute to Jackson, Ben has the look, the moonwalk and the voice. The concert features all-live vocals, superb musicians and fabulous costumes – as well as the signature dance moves associated with the King of Pop.

Ben has been obsessed with Michael Jackson for as long as he can remember. He used to pore over album covers, photographs, interviews and videos. Even his seventh birthday was Michael Jackson-themed. He had always loved dancing, and began copying Jackson’s signature moves as he dreamt of being a performer.

Ben started experimenting with stage hair and make-up, and worked on outfits that emulated Jackson’s style. He started taking part in Open Mic sessions, and aged only 17, booked a hall and promoted his own Michael Jackson Tribute Show – which sold out. With this encouragement, he decided to work full time on improving the show and took it on the road.

Since then he has enjoyed eight successful years as a tribute act. He is now in the second year of touring his theatre show.

The show at the Wyvern begins at 7.30pm. Tickets are £26 with group discounts available. To book, call 01793 524481 or visit
