The West End production of Michael Jackson musical "Thriller Live" is to close after four years onstage.

Bing: New Jackson Cirque show to open

The show, based on the music of the late superstar and his group, the Jackson 5, opened at London's Lyric Theatre in January 2009, just months before the singer's death in June of that year.

Theater bosses have now decided to bring the curtain down on the production, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, and a new show will take up residence at the venue from July 3.

"Thriller Live" toured the U.K., before moving to the West End, while it has also been performed across Europe, China, Singapore, South Africa and Japan. A Brazilian production opened last month.
