    Default Dangerous Tour planned songs

    I found this on Wikipedia:

    ''The theme "Give in to me", was one of the modifications that were had in the structure of the show, for its official closure in the United States, but they were only included in two presentations of Mexico City, it should be mentioned that also I planned to include the themes of "In the Closet", "Who Is It" and "Remember the Time", as well as the themes of "Rock with you", "Beat It", "The Girl Is Mine", "Bad" , "Liberian Girl", "The Way You Make Me Feel" and "Dirty Diana", which would be included again in the concerts randomly, because they would have an estimated duration of two hours and thirty minutes, a little more than the show usually lasted.''

    Now I know how unreliable of a source Wikipedia can be (obviously 'Give In To Me' wasn't performed live in Mexico City) but I was wondering if anyone has any information regarding songs that Michael initially planned to perform but ultimately left off the set list for the 'Dangerous Tour' (apart from 'Rock With You' and 'Remember The Time').

    That Wikipedia information sounds false (duh, it’s Wikipedia), but I will not doubt that they devised a setlist contrary to the rehearsals setlist that was shelved (like the original setlist of the Royal Brunei concert with songs from the Bad album). Just a guess though.

    What was that original setlist with the bad songs?

    I wish he would have performed Remember the Time and Rock With You. The rehearsal videos are great.

    Jennifer confirmed that both "In The Closet" & "Remember The Time" were rehearsed for the tour, but were cut before the final setlist

    Remember that itc was played as a band interlude in Toulouse on the DWT. Curious to see a live vocals rehearsal!

    Now that's a rehearsal I want to see. Assuming it's true and the magazine didn't misquote her.

    I agree with Galactus on Remember the Time... that song is perfection and the fact that it wasn't performed on tour is a bit of a letdown.

    I would assume Live Vocals as Michael's rehearsals pre-1993 didn't have any lip-syncing at all, does anybody know the rehearsal dates for the tour? I know the song was taken out before Remember The Time, so it could be any dates before the earliest leaked rehearsals

    Yes, a friend of mine played a show with her and she also confirmed that. Also, they were planning to do something different with SPYHO interlude with the backing vocals guys, more like the WATW interlude in the 2nd leg but, (as always) cutted out.

    Michael Jackson also planned and rehearsed ‘In The Closet’ and ‘Give In To Me’ for the Dangerous Tour.

    For his solo tours, he used to plan and rehearse also songs that were about to be released as singles during a certain tour.

    He did that because he wanted to perform on stage also new songs that, at the same time, the audience (who came to see him live) was familiar with, like his newly released singles.

    Also, according to information from his personnel employed on those tours, Michael Jackson always rehearsed more songs (than the ones on the final set list) just for him to be on the safe side.

    An unexpected costume malfunction, or a technical serious glitch for example (concerning a certain song that was being performed) could be arise during the tour, and in that case another planned and rehearsed song (that is not included on the final set list) would smoothly and immediately replace it.

    I recall Jennifer saying 30+ songs were rehearsed (22 of those songs are confirmed to have been rehearsed). It would also match up with the (claimed) 25+ for the Musical, which is set during the Rehearsals.

    Actually, I recall costume malfunction was the reason why Remember The Time missed not only the whole tour, but the Bucharest show.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Give In To Me was rehearsed, but i'm kinda thankful it was removed since I was never a big fan of that song. What I want to know is that if Keep The Faith was rehearsed (Personal Favorite song out of the album)

    I really wish 'Remember The Time' would have been performed.I mean it was such a big hit (bigger than 'She's Out Of My Life for example) and would have looked awesome on stage.

    'In The Closet' also should have been performed since it looked really good on the HIStory Tour (probably not the whole song though).

    I think the reason why 'Give In To Me' was not performed was because of 'Black Or White' and 'Beat It'.There would have been too many guitar songs in the set list.It's also probably the same with 'Keep The Faith', 'Will You Be There' and 'Man In The Mirror'.
