Michael Jackson plaque
This is where a plaque to Michael Jackson was erected.
Location: Lyric Square, King Street, Hammersmith, W6 0QL
Description: This super Hammersmith theatre was home to Thriller Live, the show featuring a string of the King of Pop's solo hits and those with the Jackson 5, for several years and through the point of his death.
Shocked fans flocked to the theatre after his death, creating a shrine of candles, tributes and flowers and signing 40 books of condolence. A permanent plaque can be viewed in the foyer.
