    Default Which Tour had the Best Band?

    Hi everyone, I'm not sure if there's ever been a thread dedicated to which tour had the best band, so I thought I'd make one

    It's currently 1 AM in the eastern USA and I couldn't sleep so I figured that I watch the official DVD of the Bad Tour Wembley concert. It's a shame that the CD version of the concert had to remove the Bad Groove AKA the band jam session because it's so much fun to listen to.

    It got me thinking: what is everyone else's opinion of the band members on each of Michael's tours, both solo and with the Jacksons. I'm leaning more towards the Bad Tour overall, but there were folks from different tours that I really like. Specifically Greg Phillinganes as a keyboardist/musical director, Jonathan "Sugarfoot" Moffat as the drummer, Jennifer Batten and/or David Williams on guitar, and Siedah Garret on backing vocals.

    What are your favorite MJ tour bands? If you can't narrow it down to just one tour, who are your favorite band members from each of the tours? I'm narrowing down the choices to the following:

    Pre-1981 bands
    Triumph Tour (since they still had a brass section)
    Victory Tour (with half of the brothers playing their own instruments)
    Bad Tour (since they were go good that they got to have their own jam session within the show)
    Dangerous Tour (Siedah and Brad Buxer join the band!)
    HIStory tour (a solid live band despite a mostly lip-synching MJ)
    This Is It (a mixture of old favorites like Sugarfoot and new talents like Oranthi)
    Other (i.e. 2001 MSG, the 1999 MJ & Friends concerts, etc.)

    Just going by the rehearsals, I think that This Is It would have been the best live band Michael ever had.

    Bad Tour. Music sounded the best in my opinion.

    If you only focus on the band and the attention and gratitude they got, I go for the Bad tour with indeed their special section they were granted.
