artists most of the time keep the masters and film footage of their shows, maybe michael stored it away as he didnt want it released?
if someone discovered all the shows on film from the bad tour, which would you like to see most?
I would like to see the blue shirt concert from Moonwalker MITM.
I don't think the question is whether they were filmed or not, because they obviously were, based on the evidence posted in this topic.
The problem is that the estate doesn't know where they are now...
.. but they told me a man should be faithful and walk when not able and fight till the end but I'm only human ..

These are the exact FILM cameras used to film the Bad Tour per the email I got from the Film director of the tour Mr. Pecchi.
Mr. Pecchi is the director that Michael Jackson wrote the letter to explaining to how vitally important it was for him to capture the performances in the best way. He says they filmed entire concerts during that tour so here its is straight from the director in charge of capturing the Bad Tour on Film. I just hope they find this footage because as Much as i love the DVD we got, it's so hard to watch after seeing the Blu Ray footage of Man In The Mirror. It is simply amazing, so The Estate just has to find that footage! Maybe some of this footage will be included in the Bad 25 Blu Ray!
Here is his email from him. I asked if they every filmed entire shows and whether an entire Wembley show was captured on Film. His response:
We started out in Tokyo with 1 beta cam and soon purchased a 35mm BL 4 and a 16mm camera. Eventually our crew grew to 5 and we shot miles of color neg at shows in Tokyo and Osaka. Moved on to Australia and more shows. I was his DP/director until we came back to the US to regroup for Europe. Several changes happened and I quit the show. A few of our original crew continued, but I departed.
Miles of 35 neg, shows, interviews, moments with MJ, some great stuff. I Have no idea where the footage is now. Rather certain entire UK show was filmed.
Thank you charismatic for sharing the email! Good to know that full concerts were filmed. If Estate is reading this please do everything you can to find the film reels and release Bad Tour in HD
You should post that to this thread also:

i'm still hopeful that a concert from the usa leg of bad will be released.
I'm biased in favour of the show that was released, as it was my first ever MJ show I went to!! I'm just grateful it was that show that was discovered!!
See my MJ video tribute creations...
