    Hmm, you're right.

    During the Bad tour in 87/88 he was wearing a white crew neck shirt during songs like Billie Jean and MITM, but on the last night of the tour in 89 it was a v-neck shirt like during the Dangerous tour.

    Of course there's also the countless changes in dance moves for Billie Jean and especially Stranger in Moscow. I get the vibe that SIM was the most impressive at the end of the tour, but other songs seemed more lacklustre (like holding the mic in Dangerous or the half-ass lean in Smooth Criminal). Billie Jean is a mixed bag. Seems like he had a smoother moveset for the spotlight endings but the first half of the song tended to be weaker. Vocally he sounded weaker but he was singing more ad-libs than much of the first leg (except late 96 performances where the mic was turned on earlier)

    On the Bad Tour I have noticed these changes starting from the Paris concert June 27th 1988 and onwards whe it comes to vocals and sounds effects:

    That "Woom, woom, woom" bass sound effect you can hear during the Human Nature robot dance in the early European concerts like in Rome was not present.

    During the dance instrumental part of Rock With You, Michael started to ad-lib the line "Shake your thing! Come on yeah!"

    In Smooth Criminal, Michael started to ad-lib the line "I don't know" fully during whole first ad-lib section of the chorus, instead of going into with "Dad gone it, hoo" from the second half of the ad-lib section.

    In Billie Jean after the first moonwalk Michael started to ad-lib the line "You know what you did, baby! You know what you did, baby!"

    Well, technically, he did do it, but not live, as he lipsynched it on the HIStory World Tour and in other performances after the 80s, so...

    But in terms of live vocals, then yeah, Mike did not put emphasis on "meee" on the live performances of the Dangerous World Tour.

    I love this kind of variation. Michael Jackson's live vocals were always unique.

    They also made some subtle changes to the video (with segments of his music videos and highlights of his career) that was played on the video walls right before the ‘Billie Jean’ performance during the HIStory Tour.

    The video of the earlier HIStory concerts was longer and included shots that were cut from the later HIStory concerts.

    For example, in the later HIStory concerts, towards the end of that video they cut his ‘Human Nature’ pose, but they also cut the ‘Thriller’ scene in which while hugging Ola Ray he turns to the camera smiling with these scary eyes.

    Are there any pics of Michael performing Thriller from 1987 with the white stripped pants?

    In 1992 dangerous tour, his mic was off during the entire dance routine of Smooth Criminal until the last live line. In 1993, his mic was on so that he shouted the live "Ahhh!" when he did the post in the dance routine.

    https://youtu.be/-xBpbqt5guo?t=291

    This did not appear in Argentina, but appeared in many other concerts such as Mexico and Brazil. However, in the clip above, his lips were barely moving, which is kinda strange.

    The chord played after the end of second chorus "ybhb, ybsb, a sc" is usually a vi minor (seventh) chord (I may be wrong, not a music expert), and it sounds like this:

    https://youtu.be/cRceoKYIA98?t=206

    But the chord played at Royal Brunei concert is very unique, it doesn't sound the same as the chord played before.
