    Last night I was searching HIStory and Dangerous Tour rehearsal videos and came across this "golden" gem. It is very short and a blink and you miss moment but it looks like I found a short video of him rehearsing wearing the gold pants.

    I hope that something is done to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the start of the HIStory Tour.

    imo, they better should focus on october 2021 to celebrate 50 years since MJs first single release (GTBT)

    Speaking for myself, I think "the Estate doesn't care" is a myth. Some fans don't understand what the job of Estate executors actually is (or they don't want to understand) and they don't understand the magnitude of the job, including the complexities and the difficulties that have been faced for a very long eleven years. People don't heed anything that Estate officials tell them in Q & A's or in announcements and just keep on believing what best fits their own narrative. There's nothing funny about it, really.

    That's a good idea! I hope they do! "Got to be There" was with Motown, right? Not sure if that presents complications or not.

    So funny that it's from a source named "The BAD Tour Archives". LOL

    (NOTE: For those who have seen me bitch about this time and time again, it isn't a defense for the Estate's radio silence. It's simply not sensible to compare the amount of unreleased material we get from the Prince estate versus the MJ estate, because it's a known fact that Prince has FAR more releasable music. You can compare the frequency of the projects themselves, but not the music contained within. It's nonsensical.)
    Spot on, as always. I'll probably have all the Prince fans up in arms when I say this, too, but even though Prince was prolific - churning out songs/albums by the score and there is no doubt a lot of unreleased music in his vaults that can be flooded out to the public - the overall quality of it and high standard of excellence is not there, in comparison to what we have in Michael's music. I actually LIKE that there are fewer completed, releasable songs available to the Estate, because it makes what we do have, all the more valuable. Less is more.

    Yes they are. That is definitely true. Envious, also, of what has been achieved in the past eleven years and envious of the continued strong chart performance of what Michael left behind for the world.

    Perhaps. It's highly likely in the current economic climate. I think production and distribution has been slow in the eyes of many (maybe due to co-vid, I'm not sure), which they have found to be annoying and have complained about, on social media. People don't always read the fine print when they order, though. The HIStory merchandise was up for pre-order mid-year, around May or June, but it was due to be dispatched world-wide, only from October onwards. Some who placed their order in May expected to receive it soon after that, not realising that it was a pre-order, actually slated for later in the year.

    Another problem is that the official t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, caps and so forth are quite expensive. Fans can buy MJ knock-offs from a plethora of different web-sites, for a third of the price. It's just a matter of deciding how badly they want a specific item and how much they want to pay for it. It's like choosing between an official name brand or a Chinese copy of anything, I suppose - shoes, handbags, t-shirts, dresses, etc. A high proportion of people will most often choose the cheaper options.

    I have a mixture of official and non-official MJ merchandise in my wardrobe - it depends entirely on my financial ebb and flow.
