Michael performs to a capacity audience of 60,000 at a concert at Vicente Calderón in Madrid, Spain. Whilst in Spain, Michael is presented with a quadruple Platinum Award for ‘Bad’ before his concert. [Video @ the end]
Staff at Disneyland fail to recognize Michael when he turns up in disguise, wearing a wig, blue contact lenses, false teeth and light make-up. A cashier becomes suspicious when Michael’s friend presents his (Jackson’s) credit card. In the end, Michael has to prove his identity by demonstrating some of his famous dance steps, including the moonwalk. Disneyland politely request that Michael rings up first in future, before visiting.
