King of Pop - The Legend Continues... Starring Navi

navi-middleton-arenaFriday 13 February 2015

There are several tribute shows to Michael Jackson currently performing around the world, but only ONE will have you believing for just a moment... The Legend Continues.

This superb production stars 'Navi' who is officially recognised as the world's No.1 MJ impersonator. He is also the only tribute ever to be chosen by Michael Jackson himself. Michael selected Navi to perform at two of his birthday parties and actually gave him a standing ovation. Michael also invited Navi to spend a day at his home 'Neverland'. The pair remained close and Navi was often hired to act as Michael's decoy/body double due to his uncanny resemblance to the star.

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level and has performed in a whopping 57 different countries. Along with his incredible live band and dancers, he is currently taking UK theatres by storm and once again raising the bar in the MJ tribute world with his thrilling new show.

Don't miss King Of Pop – The Legend Continues as Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a night out the whole family will enjoy.

Doors 7.30pm, show starts 8pm
Tickets: Adults £16, Under 16 £10, Group offer buy 10 get 2 free.

The most magical pantomime of all, you'll have a ball!

Shone Productions are thrilled to be returning to Middleton Arena this Christmas with the most magical pantomime of them all starring X Factor finalists Same Difference and Byker Grove's Hazel Pude with fantastic live band.

After the announcement that Prince Charming is to be holding a royal ball, it seems she may get her wish after all, but with the Ugly Sisters about who knows what can happen. Still with the help of Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and a generous helping of fairy dust, perhaps her wish will come true?

But there is only one way to find out, so come on down to the Middleton Arena this Christmas to see spectacular scenery, stunning costumes, brilliant songs and dance routines and hilarious jokes.
