Hailed as one of the most realistic Michael Jackson tributes in Britain, Jackson – Live in Concert starring Ben is touring the UK through spring 2018. The production will make stops at the Churchill Theatre, Grimsby Auditorium, Towngate Theatre Basildon, The Stables Wavendon and Hazlitt Theatre Maidstone.
Ben brings Michael Jackson to life on stage, emulating his dance moves and voice like few other tribute artists in the world can. Each song is sung live, with Ben emanating the same charisma as the King of Pop himself.
The production is always on tour, so more dates will be planned in late spring and summer.
Ben A, star of the show, has been inspired by Michael Jackson since he was a child. After many years of practicing and imitating the King of Pop, Ben at the age of 17 booked his own function hall to promote his Michael Jackson Tribute Show. The show sold out, and the audience fell in low with Ben’s tribute act.
Realizing the success of the show, Ben decided to take his act on tour and improve his show. The show features a complete band, dancers and singers.
Along with Ben on vocals, the production features a talented group of musicians, singers and dancers.
The band includes the following members:
- Ashley Maksym on guitar.
- Dave Parsons on keys.

Jackson – Live in Concert pays tribute to one of the most popular entertainers on the planet. Michael Jackson, known as the “King of Pop,” was the best-selling artist at the time of his death in 2009.
Michael’s career in music began when he was just a child in 1964. Along with his brothers Jermaine, Jackie, Marllon and Tito, Michael was a member of the Jackson 5. He signed onto Motown Records in 1971 at the start of his solo career.
Michael became a dominant force in pop music in the early 80s. He was known for his memorable music videos, including “Billie Jean,” “Beat It” and “Thriller.”
Thriller remains as the best-selling album in history, with an estimated 65 million copies sold across the world. HIStory, Off the Wall and Dangerous rank among the best-selling albums as well.
Michael was inducted into the hall of fame twice – a rarity in the music industry. He was also inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
