Quincy Jones Presents: Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad
For the first time ever in the UK, Quincy Jones will present the world-changing albums he produced: ‘Off The Wall’, ‘Thriller’, and ‘Bad’, LIVE IN CONCERT. This one-off show at The O2 in London on Sunday 23rd June will see all three records performed back to back by a symphony orchestra and accompanied by an array of special guests to be announced.
Returning to the UK after one of the most talked about concerts of 2018, ‘Quincy Jones – A Life In Song’ - which The Times called ‘… a ritzy extravaganza’, and the Evening Standard called ‘… a crowd-pleasing, star-studded…’ show - Quincy will introduce and host the evening, which will feature never before seen video of the making of each album in between the live performances, picking apart the intricacies from a hat-trick of records that are a highlight in an unparalleled body of work.
1979’s ‘Off The Wall’, 1982’s ‘Thriller’, and 1987’s ‘Bad’, all represent a unique, triptych landmark in popular culture, leading to both unrivalled commercial and critical success, as well as era-spanning influence.
The three albums have sold together in excess of 150 million copies worldwide, racking up an uncountable list of platinum discs and awards, including both ‘Off The Wall’ and ‘Thriller’ being inducted into the GRAMMY Award Hall of Fame in 2008.
Forging a link between disco, R&B and pop, the albums spawned some of the most popular songs of all time, including ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’, ‘Beat It’, ‘Billie Jean’, ‘Smooth Criminal’, and more.
A celebration of three lifetime-defining albums, Quincy Jones will present ‘Off The Wall’, ‘Thriller’, and ‘Bad’ live for what will be one of the most memorable concert experiences of all time.
