Get ready to moonwalk the night away at Newport’s Riverfront Theatre on Friday 27th April to the music of Michael Jackson.
King Of Pop – The Legend Continues stars tribute Navi who was hired by Jackson himself as the stars official body double! With an incredible live band and dancers, the production features all of Jackson’s mega-hits in a fast-paced, two-hour show that will have you dancing in the aisles and singing along all night to the likes of Thriller, Billie Jean and Smooth Criminal.
Navi is widely regarded as the leading and most successful Michael Jackson tribute artist on the planet – a claim that is backed up by an incredible list of achievements chalked up in a career spanning three decades.
As well as working for Michael Jackson as his official body double, the star also booked Navi to perform at two of his lavish birthday parties in New York and Los Angeles. Jackson not only applauded Navi for his renditions of Smooth Criminal and Billie Jean, but also went on to give him a standing ovation.
Talking about his relationship with the late star, Navi said: “To meet Michael was one thing, but to perform in front of the greatest entertainer of all time and to perform his songs was no easy feat and extremely nerve-wracking.”
The next morning, Navi was unexpectedly received an invite from the King Of Pop to visit the star to visit his home, Neverland. Navi spent the day with Michael visiting his cinema, his zoo and even went on a few of the theme park rides – topping the day off with a barbecue on the grounds.
“My memories from that day will always be some of my most precious,” says Navi
Since Jackson’s death, Navi has continued to work alongside the MJJ Estate and has performed his tribute worldwide in a staggering 59 different countries
Talking about the 2018 UK tour, Navi said: “The show is bigger and better than ever before with a few surprises. We know the fans will have a great time celebrating Michael’s music with us.”
