    Why on God's green earth would you PREFER playback?

    Do you not understand music?

    Good setlist though!

    Because at times, playback sounds much better than his live vocals.
    I didn't like Michael's vocals for songs like Billie Jean, and Beat It, for example.
    I much more preferred a History style performance of songs like that, rather than Dangerous or Bad.

    Furthermore, I see playback as an element used in performing. It's sometimes necessary.

    Now, I don't support playback for an entire concert, but here and there doesn't bother me.

    I made another imaginary setlist recently. For this one, I kind of thought of a hypothetical scenario in my head where if I knew a Michael Jackson impersonator/tribute act who does a big, lavish, Las Vegas like production (Kind of like Navi or Michael Firestone) and they asked me "What songs should I perform?" or if I was tasked with making a setlist for them...This is what I would do

    1. Intro Video (HIStory promo video)
    2. Jam
    3. HIStory medley: They Don't Care About Us/HIStory/D.S
    4. Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
    5. Lovely One (sometimes replaced with Things I Do For You)
    6. Heartbreak Hotel
    7. Pretty Young Thing (sometimes replaced with Another Part Of Me)
    8. Smooth Criminal
    9. Slave To The Rhythm (sometimes replaced with You Rock My World)
    10. The Way You Make Me Feel
    11. Jackson 5 Medley
    12. Human Nature

    (Horror Interlude)

    13. Dirty Diana
    14. Thriller
    15. Working Day and Night
    16. Beat It
    17. Billie Jean
    18. Shake Your Body
    19. Come Together
    20. Dangerous
    21. Earth Song
    22. Who Is It
    23. Black Or White
    24. Bad

    (Encore)

    25. Heal The World
    26. Man In The Mirror

    mine would take place either at the very end of '83, or at the start of '84 (the pepsi commercial and victory tour never would have happened). it would also be outside of America, in an indoor venue similar to where motown 25 was filmed, and broadcast worldwide. all song would be performed in their original key.

    list:

    startin' somethin' (naturally!) - he'd be wearing a buttoned up jacket and glove

    p.y.t - jacket is opened at this point, and glove is removed

    human nature - jacket is off to reveal sparkly shirt

    say say say

    rock with you

    off the wall

    *changes to the red and black shirt, with red jeans he wore when he visited Disneyland with john landis in '83*

    *set transforms into a replica of the area where the hayvenhurst interview took place. complete with mock clock tower and water fountain. he begins singing at the top balcony, and makes his way down

    the wiz medley ('when you wish upon a star', 'follow the yellow brick road', 'ease on down the road) - for the latter two songs, he's joined for the first time by back up dancers. only they're dressed as animals such as llamas, chimps, and other Disney characters.

    someone in the dark

    thriller - set changes to horror theme. Michael now has on the red jacket from the video. he performs the first three verses as one, freestyling solo before zombies join him for the full choreography and big chorus. they perform a disappearing illusion on michael

    beat it - Michael is wearing the trademark red zipper jacket

    sorry, was having some technical issues..

    billie jean - in motown 25 outfit

    don't stop til you get enough

    that's it! short and sweet I wanted to focus on the main solo hits, with a dash of rarities thrown in. I haven't thought everything through, but I knew I wanted a more intimate setting, with broadway sensibilities. this would be a solo show with no guest appearances. I wanted to give people outside the states a chance to experience these hits in person

    Fantastic concept for a thread! Loving these posts so far.

    I'm not sure what kind of concert I would produce, or what theme I would incorporate (Anniversary, Album, Benefit/Charity, Celebration, etc etc.) However, I know what my perfect set-list is. In short: I would pay good freaking money to see this.

    1. Intro/Scream
    2. Jam
    4. Wanna Be Startin Somethin'
    5. Workin' Day and Night
    6. Human Nature
    7. The J5/Jacksons Extended Medley; ABC, I Want You Back, Dancing Machine, Blame it on the Boogie, I'll Be There, Shake Your Body
    8. Off The Wall
    9. Rock With You
    10. Smooth Criminal
    11. Remember the Time
    12. Leave Me Alone
    13. Beat It
    14. Thriller
    15. Billie Jean
    16. They Don't Care About Us
    17. Earth Song
    18. Heal the World
    19. Black or White
    20. Will You Be There
    21. Man in the Mirror

    Also, I had this neat idea the other day.

    • The Collab Concert •

    1. Intro/Scream (Feat: Janet Jackson)
    2. Wanna Be Starting Something/Segments of 'Don’t Stop The Music' (Feat: Rihanna.)
    3. They Don't Care About Us/'Tennis Court' (Feat: Lorde)
    4. The J5 Medley; ABC, I Want You Back, I'll Be There (Feat: The Jacksons)
    5. Off The Wall Medley; Off the Wall, She's Out of My Life, Rock With You (Feat: Bruno Mars)
    6. I Just Can't Stop Loving You (Feat: Beyoncé)
    7. Smooth Criminal (Feat: Alien Ant Farm, and a Guitar Solo by Slash)
    8. Billie Jean (Feat: All Aforementioned Artists as backup vocals)
    9. Just Good Friends (Feat: Stevie Wonder)
    10. Baby Be Mine/'Get Lucky' (Feat: Daft Punk)
    11. Human Nature (Feat: Sam Smith)
    12. Man in the Mirror (Only Michael)
    13. 'Purple Rain' (Feat: Prince)
    14. We Are The World (Feat: Everyone)

    I have never heard someone actually prefer Playback performances of Billie jean/Beat it in concert...
    I'd take live vocals from the Bad tour (first or second leg) over history tour any day. Rehearsals proved Mj could sing several songs just as good if not better than playback. It's simply his dancing that will obviously affect his singing. IMO Billie Jean/Beat it should always be live. Vocally, Beat it on the victory tour was amazing because the choreography was not as refined as later tours. Although I respect your opinion, I can't agree.

    I've decided to ditch the Disney medley and off the wall songs, and just focus on thriller singles (minus the girl is mine) and say say say. mine would be more of a one off showcase for the bits of '83

    Default Re: Make Your Own Michael Jackson Setlist/Show

    Here's my idea for an ideal Michael concert. The setlist is as follows:

    HIStory teaser
    1. Jam+2Bad
    2. They Don't Care About Us+In The Closet(with excerpts from She Drives Me Wild and HIStory)
    3. Wanna Be Starting Something(2nd verse removed)
    4. Human Nature(2nd verse removed)
    5. Smooth Criminal
    6. The Way You Make Me Feel(shortened version)
    7. You Are Not Alone
    Compliation of childhood videos: Home
    8. Jackson 5 medley(I Want You Back+The Love You Save+I'll Be There)
    9. Off The Wall medley(Rock With You+Don't Stop Till You Get Enough)
    Egyptian Fantasy
    10. Thriller(music video version)
    11. Working Day And Night(shortened version)
    12. Beat It(2nd verse removed)
    13. Billie Jean
    The Invincible Man(music used: This Land- by Hans Zimmer)
    14. Why You Wanna Trip On Me(shortened version)
    15. Dangerous(combination of 1993 live version+MTV performance version)
    16. You Rock My World(2nd verse removed)
    17. Come Together+D.S.
    18. Speechless+Best Of Joy
    Panther Dance
    19. Black Or White
    20. We've Had Enough+Earth Song
    Children Of The World(music: solo version of We Are The World)
    21. Heal The World(2nd verse removed)
    22.Bad(2nd verse removed)
    23. Will You Be There(shortened version)
    24. Blood On The Dance Floor(2nd verse removed)
    25. HIStory/Man In The Mirror(2nd verse removed)

    Michael's look for this show would be straight, messed up hair(like in the video for Earth Song), with different jackets for each song(there are exceptions). Also, Michael will have his Invincible-era physique for this show.

    The show opens with the HIStory teaser. Michael uses the toaster illusion for the opening song. He wears the black and gold Jam jacket(the one he wore at the Super Bowl show in 1993). He wears the same jacket for They Don't Care About Us. His pants are black, with silver buttons(like the one used during Dangerous tour, but a bit baggy-looking).

    For WBSS, he wears the jacket for that song from Bad tour. He wears a smooth, silky, gold jacket for Human Nature.

    For Smooth Criminal, the opening is the one used in This Is It(the video featuring those old movies), but it also has the narration from Bad and Dangerous tours, as beautiful ladies and well-dressed gentlemen strut and freestyle across the stage. Michael then comes on stage, and opens the song with a "pow!!!".

    For TWYMMF, Michael wears his famous blue dress shirt(with buttoned cuffs). The girl he chases around wears a sexy black dress with gold embroidery at the edges.

During the second verse, he dances with a Mohiniyattam dancer from India. He then dances with hopak dancers(male and female), before going to sing the bridge. A smoke vent opens up and sends smoke flying up as silk flames rise up behind Michael and his female guitarist.
    He then performs the rap section with a group of street kids, aged 12-16. Then when he comes out after the pause, he has Arab sword dancers and Arab women weaving their hair back and forth. After they leave, a giant display of world landmarks slide on stage(Taj Mahal, Burj Khalifa, Eiffel tower, Statue of Liberty, etc.).

    Michael wears his tattered-up Earth Song shirt for WHE+Earth Song. He gets on a cherry picker for the "What bout yesterday" section. If the timing is right, he gets back on stage just before the "whoo! whoo!" section. Then, a group of soldiers come on stage and begin to point their guns at the villagers. Michael tries to stop them, but then they all point their guns at him. He then prays silently, before rising to make a speech on human greed and how it has affected the earth.

The girl walks away, appparently having stabbed Michael.
