Navi who is officially recognised as the world’s number one Michael Jackson impersonator, is performing at the Burnley Mechanics on Friday, November 28.

Jackson personally selected Navi to perform at two of his birthday parties and after one of the performances even said: “You are an incredible dancer, do you practise every day?”

He also employed him as his own personal decoy and lookalike. Part of Navi’s role would be to distract mobs of fans and Press who were waiting to see Jackson while the real star slipped quietly out the back exit of the building.

Now, Navi, along with his incredible live band and dancers, is back in the UK for a national tour that is set to raise the bar even further in the MJ tribute world.

The show recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as “Thriller”, “Bad”, “Dirty Diana” and “Smooth Criminal”.

Tickets are £15 and can be bought from the Mechanics box office on 01282 664400 or by visiting the website www.burnleymechanics.co.uk.
