    When the vocals come on for Billie Jean and Beat It. The intro, Off The Wall Medley for sure.

    Dangerous
    Black Or White
    Beat It

    The Come Together / DS performance wasn't spectacular, but it was a nice surprise that he included those.

    I love the James Brown shuffle he does near the end of Wanna Be Startin Something on The History Tour. He had perfected it by that point and I love how it wasn’t choreographed or anything he just went for it and doing different variations each night.

    Other highlights are
    The end dance sequence for Billie Jean
    Live vocals for You are not alone
    The robotic movements for Stranger In Moscow
    In The Closet (he should have performed the whole song)
    Off The Wall Medley. That was such a nice surprise and I love the arrangement for these songs
    Blood On The Dancefloor. The arrangement for this song live was impeccable.
    The set list overall. It was a good mix of old songs and new songs from HIStory.

    The end dance to Billie Jean
    Blood On The Dance Floor. The live version is a lot more funky than the album version
    The robotic moves in Stranger In Moscow
    His interaction with the kids during Heal The World is always heartwarming to watch

    Even though his voice was not the best I like WBSS and the J5 medly for the live vocals.

    End of BJ dance - and the one live version of BJ and Beat It - is it Brunei - that's great too.

    The dance in SiM is amazing, so great. - BUT seing the close-ups at the backup singers - and even thier vocals are playback... ruins it a little to be honest.

    HIStory is a spectacle - it's huge, it's theatrical and a nice concert to watch. (even though I may sound negative about play-back I do still enjoy many parts of the HIStory concerts)
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    My favourite part of the tour is Michael's adaptation. Think Billie Jean or Stranger in Moscow. It's a newer style for Michael. Slower, more refined and jaw dropping at times. Some of Michael's best ever dance moments come from this tour. It gets nowhere near enough credit. The robotic style of Stranger in Moscow still gives me goosebumps. Most people couldn't dance to a song like that, especially not the way Michael did it.

    Can't forget the absolutely banging 'They Don't Care About Us' from Munich either, it just sounds great. As do many from that show. The audio is really good for the Munich concert in my opinion.

    It's nice to see a positive topic for once too. Credit to the original poster.

    Nice to see some love for this tour (my favorite), despite it getting a lot of criticism

    - They Don't Care About Us performance. I love TDCAU's dance choreography. I wish it was performed as a full song and not part of a medley.
    - The dance at end of the OTW Medley during DSTYGE.
    - The Ad-libs during the end of Heal The World.

    The end part of Earth Song has made me cry several times.

    Also the opening medley is simply epic.

    That's my favorite part too.

    I'm not disputing what you said but I do think he already perfected It during the mid 70s. I've seen footage of him doing it during performances of dancing machine in the mid 70s. Also I think he is already trying it as a kid in that early rehearsal when he was 10 years in 1968.
    I'm not saying you do but people generally underestimate his dance moves during the second half of the 70s. For example his multiple spinning was the best during these times imo and I really loved him doing disco style dancing in general.

    Analogue and Themidwestcowboy nailed it completely. Stranger In Moscow is great, I'm glad it didn't end up like those what have been songs and it was performed by Mike. The robot dance in it is amazing, Mike really knew how the audience should see the moves, whether it be smooth and slow or fast and like a jerk motion. He truly was the master at dancing. I love the James Brown shuffle and like Themidwestcowboy said, I love how it changed depending on how Michael felt night after night, it was great to see in a show so precise and rehearsed moments of real magic and spontaneity. Controversial opinion MJ did the James Brown shuffle the best

    Also like Analogue said, I love the adlibs and of course the end dance in Billie Jean. I love how he would almost forget he was on stage and just get lost in the moment within the music, like in New Zealand I think it was or maybe Sydney were he was dancing for that long they had to start singing the back up vocals to hurry MJ up. The man really was magical and one of a kind in that regard. Although I will say I do miss the really clean moonwalk from the Dangerous tour. I think Michael did his best moonwalks in the end dance itself, rather than in the break in the song after the two heee's, on the HIStory Tour.

    In my opinion Michael moonwalkers got slower and shorter as he got older. which is understandable. those moonwalks in the thriller, bad, and dangerous eras were the best.
