    Default This day in history: Bad Tour Los Angeles 1989, January 27th.

    On this date in history MJ closed out his legendary first solo tour “The Bad Tour” with the last of 5 sold out shows at the Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles 1989.

    The tour became the second highest grossing tour of the 80s. Spanning 16 months including 123 concerts to 4,4 million fans across 15 countries. The Bad tour earned Michael two entries in the Guinness book of world records for the largest grossing tour in history and the tour with the largest attended audience.

    I hate to say it but you're probably not far wrong here mate. Maybe they could just cut that section of Bad out of the release, I know I wouldn't miss it
    It would be such a shame to never see an amazing show or any other show from the tour

    Love the first image by the way Themidwestcowboy. Great choice, I don't think I've ever seen that one before

    As long as (if) they release it at least in true DVD quality, I don't care if they cut that part out.

    Doesn't matter. The negative press surrounding the release, especially if he's cut out (just imagine it) isn't worth it, for something that especially won't sell well.

    MJ Estate don't need to give reasons for negative publicity, especially when media are trying so hard to make anything stick.

    They could just edit it out. The actual song ends before it so they can easily do it.

    I really hope they release the concert at some point. I found this clip on Youtube:

    I think this might be the concert they would release when they release another Bad Tour concert. The quality is good and some say that it was planned to be released at the time. I hope they still have the master tape. This or one of the New York concerts would be great.

    In case of a future release, they do not really need to have the original master tapes of that final Los Angeles BAD concert, or the original master tapes of any other New York BAD concert.

    As long as they have the VHS tape of the concert (taken from Michael Jackson’s own personal video collection), then they can very easily do the same thing that they did some years ago with the release of the 1988 Wembley BAD concert.

    For the release of the 1988 Wembley BAD concert they cooperated with a specialized team of engineers (that also effectively recovers footage for NASA), and that team can improve drastically the quality from VHS tapes.

    Since then, the Estate has remained in touch with that team for possible, future collaborations/releases.

    But keep in mind that the Estate has already made it clear that it does not plan to release a second BAD concert.

    A) I hope not - they did an awful job on Wembley
    B) It's not acceptable to release a VHS in 2020 and charge full price for it.

    Wembley only worked because they had the 5.1 audio.

    Of course they don't need the master tape but it would be great. Its likely that they still have it. The footage that was used in The One (2004) documentary looks good.

    I don't know how true it is, but apparently after the Neverland raids Michael's storage essentially went to crap and wasn't maintained. The One was obviously just before the raids in 2003, so whoever it was in charge had access to good material.

    Kind of incredible that the BAD tour was Jackson's first solo tour. You'd think he would have embarked on a solo tour already in 1983 after the huge success of Thriller. Anyone know why that is? Could it be because of contractual obligations to the Jackson 5 that he wasn't allowed to do that?
