Britain's Michael Jackson fans will be moonwalking their way to theatres when the Michael Jackson History Show launches it's first ever Ireland/UK tour this April! 


After performances in the past nine years across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Indonesia, South Africa, Canada and the US, word of this show has spread amongst the MJ community, with the show being inundated with pleas to come to the UK stage. It was this persistent devotion of admirers that allowed producer John Van Grinsven to hear the requests loud and clear, ultimately leading to the Michael Jackson HIStory Show’s UK debut.


The fine tuning from producer John Van Grinsven that ultimately made the show a world-wide success. In contrast to other tribute acts amongst the MJ community, the Michael Jackson HIStory Show stays true to a real life Michael Jackson concert with only one solo artist taking the stage; mirroring Michael Jackson’s performances for an accurate experience. 


The world-class production showcases all of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits live on stage, complemented by the famous dance moves that fans all know, love and aspire to do. Star of the show, Dantanio, will be accompanied by a lively six-piece band, four groovy backup dancers and a phenomenal lighting team.


The show features 40 different customised costumes, 20 of which are for the MJ character alone. Over 100 hours have been dedicated to the lighting design, which makes use of 160+ moving lights and over 2000 lighting cues arranged to punctuate and enhance the musical elements of the show.


Director Johnny Van Grinsven flew around the world auditioning performers for the role of MJ for over a year before finding and casting Dantanio, a South African theatre performer and solo recording artist who has been studying and impersonating Jackson since the age of nine!


The Michael Jackson HIStory Show is touring selected venues nationally. Tickets are on sale now! Visit for ticketing and further information.
