A tribute act will aim to recreate the atmosphere of a Michael Jackson concert at The Cresset, Peterborough.

The Forever Jackson show will see Robin Parsons assuming the mantle of the late King of Pop on Friday, February 27.

His live vocal performance will be backed up with authentic dance routines and a look which is the result of a two hour theatrical make up process.

Having performed for Jackson back in 2003, Parsons will now celebrate his life’s work.

The show features a live band whose individual credits include supporting Beyonce, Katy Perry, and The Script. In addition, backing comes from an all-female dance crew which promises to add a modern twist to the world-famous routines.

Fans can also expect visual effects galore and a varied set list from Can You Feel It by The Jackson 5 to solo songs such as Billie Jean and Smooth Criminal.

Parsons said: “We are excited to give the people of Peterborough the opportunity to experience this mind-blowing concert-style performance. It’s the closest you’ll see to watching the King Of Pop himself live in concert. Playing the part of Michael Jackson is a great honour, it’s going to be an electrifying night for the people of Peterborough, and we hope to see everyone dancing in the aisles.”
