    Don't hype yourself up for something that is not going to happen. This will only lead to disappointment. The Estate should be ashamed of how they ''celebrated'' Dangerous 25. Nothing will happen with HIStory, I'm sure of this.

    I believe that an anniversary release of this album would come best at this time, after Leaving Neverland. Just like the original album came in 1995 after the first allegations.

    I don’t really have high hopes about this but I just thought I’d share my thoughts about what could happen if a release is indeed planned.

    What do you guys think?
    Hey dethorro, THANK YOU so much for opening up this subject. I was actually going to create a thread about it myself, but you beat me to it. Same as you, I believe that a re-release of the album at this time would be most timely, considering the recent circumstances.

    And out of all the ideas suggested thus far, I think ScreenOrigami’s is the absolute bestest.

    That’s a completely brilliant idea, it really is. I totally resonate with it. If only the Estate would take a cue and listen, it would be great.

    Out of all the song titles circulated, I think that either Not Guilty or the Innocent Man, or even better both, if possible (even in rough, demo version) would be very good bonus tracks for a HIStory 25 special edition. Considering that many people aren’t even capable of recognizing Michael’s voice, the recording of those could literally be from any time post-93.

    We shouldn’t probably get our hopes up and start to imagine the cover of the album in a nice silvery tint, but it’s an awesome idea nonetheless. Disc 1 would truly be superfluous this time around, but disc 2 revisited with some bonus tracks to keep the theme, new photos and unseen footage from the video shoots, would be great for the fans and it may actually prove to be even profitable.

    I bet all those people who doubled Michael's streams in 2019 in answer to the failed muting campaign, the ones who discovered TDCAU in the last few years and the ones in the US who saw the ES video only recently and were surprised to know that Michael was fighting for the well-being of forests and people long before it was fashionable, well all of those compiled, make for a pretty good audience, I would say.

    Slightly o/t, I know some people are still upset about Dangerous 25, but I don’t remember any promise from the Estate about that. (Just like there isn't any about H25). It was just wishful (and logical) thinking on the part of fans. What I don’t get though is why on earth people would flood the MJ official twitter account with questions about D25 in 2019? That train had sailed, folks. Let us hope, they’ll do something in 2021, and not just something for sake of doing it, but a truly special anniversary to make up for the half a decade delay.

    John Branca mentioned that idea several times in order to get feedback, and the feedback he got was generally not positive about such a theatrical release.

    Also, there is already an over saturation of the HIStory Tour with free videos circulating on the Internet, so there is nothing new about that tour that would attract people to come to the movie theatres, to pay and to watch it (so, this means it is an unprofitable release for the Estate).

    Note that Michael Jackson (at that time) objected to releasing the Munich HIStory concert because he knew his performance on those two Munich concerts was not up to par, and so the Estate knows that also from an ethical point of view such a release should not be made.

    Also, an anniversary release of the ‘HIStory’ album would cost a lot of money for the Estate to manufacture and release it (because it is already a double disc album plus the potential bonus material), so this is not going to happen, either.

    John Branca just says publicly some things from time to time (about possible documentaries, theatrical releases, etc) because he mainly wants to get reactions, feedback, suggestions and ideas from fans/people, and not necessarily because he actually plans to proceed with the release of such potential material.
    I agree with all of this.

    This is a really good idea, with loads of potential.

    Exactly.


    I am looking forward to Dangerous 30....I hope something great happens then. BUT if it doesn't, I'm not gonna fuss too much over it. Fans always seem to dream something up and try to make it a reality just by talking about it constantly and then they become enraged when their imaginary project doesn't actually materialise.

    I think it's unrealistic for fans to expect 25, 30, 35, 40 year milestones to be recognised for each and every one of Michael's albums. There is a limit to the kinds of projects that can be produced and released to commemorate these milestones, ad infinitum and I don't see that kind of thing done with any other artists, deceased or otherwise, so I don't know why fans expect it for MJ.

    Thank you! I really hope they do something decent for the anniversary, and thematically fitting, with all those lies still going on and on.

    This X100. I find it funny and pathetic when Michael fans continuously criticise the Estate for not releasing Dangerous 25. Like you said, it's unrealistic to expect anniversary editions for every album. Anniversary editions are normally reserved for albums that define an artist in the eyes of the public. Album that is the artist's biggest and best selling album. For Michael that would be Thriller, for which we did get a 25th anniversary edition. The Estate did also give us Bad 25, which they didn't have to, as Bad was no Thriller.

    Some of these MJ fans need to let go of this entitled attitude that they deserved a Dangerous 25. It's really annoying.

    The Estate should listen and satisfy the MJ fanbase before than the whole audience, which means less money for them but a huge success in terms of respect gained from the fanbase. Dangerous and HIStory aren't popular like Thriller for most of the people, but they're probably the two most personal albums of Michael Jackson, he really put all his efforts and thoughts on them especially on HIStory. This is why we'd like to see a release for the milestones of these two albums.

    Have to disagree here. Bad 25 deserved to be released. Just because it wasnt "Thriller" doesnt mean it should be overlooked. Dangerous should have also got an anniversary release imo. Mj didnt release that many albums compared to other artists. Quality > Quantity. Since he isnt here to give us new material I dont see any reason to not celebrate anniversary releases.

    Meanwhile Prince has a Purple Rain & 1999 anniversary edition and will get anniversary editions for Sign O The Times and the eponymous "Prince" album. I don't agree with your reasoning here. I think it is even more important to celebrate the lesser known albums so that people who overlooked them might get another chance to appreciate them, even fans. There is nothing entitled about wanting to have an anniversary edition of an artists albums, this is a normal occurrence in music.

    Right? I agree with you Themidwestcowboy!

    The Beatles also got three 50th anniversary releases in the span of 3 years for 'Sgt. Pepper's', 'The White Album' and 'Abbey Road'.
    And they may even get one for 'Let It Be' this year.

    One could argue that these three albums are their most iconic ones but 'Dangerous' has sold more than any of them.
    Dangerous has sold 29.55 million copies worldwide according to chart masters while 'Abbey Road', which is their best selling studio album has sold ''only'' 26.5 million copies worldwide.

    In my opinion it isn't really about having an entitled attitude. It's just that fans look at other fanbases and expect to get the same things as they get (anniversary releases, concerts on Blu-Ray, music videos in 4K, e.t.c...)

    I don't think Dangerous or HIStory have enough popularity with casual fans to justify making anniversary editions now. Anniversary editions means physical media, not just digital, so the expense has to be justified with mainstream appeal and relevance. The Beatles' 50th anniversary edition albums have both of those things. So do Thriller and Bad. But I don't think Dangerous or HIStory do. Unfortunately, money is always the bottom line with special re-releases. Fan favourites often won't make the cut, no matter how good they are.
