    Default High Quality release of Bad Tour

    So after years and years of talk from fans wanting a high quality HD release of the Bad Tour it looks as if this will never happen. It's an absolute travesty that this will never see the light of day. I guess we will have to settle for the 'Another Part Of Me' video on the Bad 25 documentary. It has been confirmed by various people that full shows were shot with film cameras yet it's basically all for nothing and the world will never get I see it.

    Yes I'm rambling and yes I guess this is a pointless thread. But I don't care. This NEEDS to be released but it's becoming more and more clear that it indeed never will be.

    Here is some evidence:

    Here is the full version: http://icolorist.com/grading-michael-jackson/

    "My first real grading job was on the Michael Jackson Bad tour in 1988, directed by Patrick Kelly. I was an assistant telecine operator at Visions, located in Soho, London. As an assistant I laced the film, loaded the film cleaner and pressed REC on the 1” VTR.

    The concert was shot on a mixture of 35mm and 16mm film, it seemed at times they were shooting film for fun! The crew filmed 2 nights out of the 5 Wembley stadium gigs, film was also fed from the earlier tour legs in Australia, Japan, and Europe. As an accompanying piece to the concert, an “on the road” documentary was also filmed at the same time. The concert was cut in a 4 machine 1” online edit suit, not offlined. This was before Avid of FCP offline so the alternative would have been a lowband umatic or ¾ edit. As soon as the film came in from the lab we would be transferring it, feeding the footage on to 2 hungry edit suites.

    It is still the biggest music project I have ever been involved with in terms of volume of footage. We would load each negative film lab roll onto the Rank MK111 telecine machine then set the counter to a known sync point on the film. So LR 10 would be TC 10:00:00:00. The sync point would be the start mark on the film leader.

    The single “Another part of me” was cut from some of my early telecine work. The music video was cut from footage shot in London and Paris, that shows you how tight Jackson’s performance was. As far as I know the complete concert and documentary has never been released. A disappointing waste as the film managed to capture Jackson at his peak. Jackson never came into Visions during the project but Frank Dileo, his cigar smoking manager, visited a couple of times."

    Not gonna happen. We already got Wembley released in 2012 officially because it was what the fans petitioned for since 2005 and we finally got it. Unless somebody wants to break into The Estate's vaults and steal the master reels of the concerts,it'll never see the light of day. But John Branca already achieved the goal he was aspiring to: get MJ's materials back to Sony. Michael spent the final years of his life fighting against it and Branca threw all of that away. He's a two-faced a**hole.

    thanks for this. Incredible story. The idea that all these 35mm and 16mm hours of shooting are not going to be edited and released drives me crazy. Film is not eternal.

    We also have Man in the Mirror from Moonwalker Blu-Ray:


    I hope they will release some Bad Tour concert on Blu-Ray. They need to release it at some point if they have the footage. Bad Tour in HD would be the best release ever.

    Well I don't care. I really am satisfied with the Wembley DVD, but we have a right to see more Bad Tour concerts to be out, shows like New York 88', Rome 88', Berlin 88', Liverpool 88', L.A. 89 heck even Pensacola Rehearsals and we deserve those in HD version releases. If we don't get it, they'll just have to keep pleading and pushing until they gave in. They can't keep us in years of suspense and disappointments anymore, they just can't, that just makes pushing them even more.
