Michael Joseph Jackson was born August 29 1958, the seventh child of the Jackson family. He made his professional debut at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Five of his solo studio albums (Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous and HIStory) have become among the world's best-selling records. A recent re-release of Thriller to mark its 25th anniversary reached number one in eight countries, number two in the US, number three in the UK and was top 10 in over 30 national charts. He died, aged 50, on 25 June 2009. Thriller Live is a tribute to Jackson's legendary career.
