    Default HIStory 25 [MERGED]

    I know that most of us lost our hopes in regards to 25th anniversary releases when the estate didn’t release anything for the anniversary of ‘Dangerous’ back in 2016.

    But....MAYBE.....they will do something this year for HIStory.

    -The most likely option would be the release of the ‘HIStory Tour Live In Munich’ concert, either in movie theaters or on Netflix.
    One of the reasons why I believe that the estate will release this concert is because John Branca has mentioned it multiple times over the years (most recently in August 2018 at the 60th anniversary celebration in Las Vegas).
    Also, the concert was shot with HD cameras and it is much easier for them to convert it to HD and release it than say a Bad Tour show.
    If they ever really planned to release this show, I believe this would be the best time to do so.

    Personally I wouldn’t necessarily hate such a release.The HIStory Tour is not my favorite tour and the Munich show is, at least vocally probably his worst show on that tour (or ever).
    However, I would actually enjoy seeing a Michael concert at the cinema with my friends or family and I would also really love some positive articles and reviews from the media about Michael. I believe that although mostly lip-synched, such a spectacular show could bring the attention back to where it belongs: on the music and the dancing.

    -A documentary is also something that could happen if an anniversary for HIStory is planned.
    John Branca has said that they will do documentaries about ‘Dangerous’ and ‘HIStory’ at some point, at the 60th Birthday celebration in Vegas.
    Again, this would most certainly do only good to Michael and the press would most likely give it positive reviews.
    Spike Lee has done a good job in the past with the other two documentaries and it would be nice if he would do one about HIStory.
    What excites me the most is new studio footage!!!

    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?

    An anniversary release of the album maybe. It is a good album and the songs are relevant.

    I think any new Michael content would be great at this point, and I'd appreciate it and buy it. But the History Tour isn't my favorite tour of Michael's. I'd rather see an HD Triumph Tour or unreleased HD footage of the Victory Tour. Which I know is in abundance because he had that entire tour shot.

    I'm actually really worried that we won't see any releases because of all the 2019-bullsh*t about mj.

    I'm not enthusiast about this possible release, but it can't be worse than the "Off The Wall" one...
    I hope they do something for Dangerous 30th anniversary next year

    If I saw a concert in HD at the cinema I would cry, and to be honest nobody would go with me anyway.

    Not the tour but I liked the album. I agree that a release of the Triumph or Victory tour would be good.

    There is hardly any demand, both from fans and the general public, for a theatrical release (or any other type of official release) of the HIStory Tour, so they are not going to do that.

    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.

    Dangerous 30 might actually happen since Branca has confirmed that they are working on it in 2017 at the Thriller 3D screening.

    I couldn't read the rest of your post after seeing this at the start.

    There is absolutely no way that will happen.

    Wouldn't do anything for Michael at this point to release a concert of lip-syncing. I don't see anyone but a few die-hard fans having interest in buying it and the media would just rip it apart.

    Do we Know in there are any unreleased songs that are complete enough for a release on a bonus disc? What about „Bombay Nights“? I was always very curious about that one.

    I heard rumors bout it,
    It doesn't have the lead vocals on there.
