    Not a change from any tour/show, but I've noticed a mistake on the back of the Bucharest DVD. The picture of Michael doing the Smooth Criminal lean is taken from the HIStory Tour.

    On top of that the photo is mirrored.
    Plus there's no plausible reason to include a screenshot of the HIStory teaser on a 1992 concert.

    Did Michael wear the werewolf mask during this particular Thriller performance? The guy in the mask (Who is usually not Michael) runs off while the backing dancers finish off the dance routine without him. Was that Michael running off the go change into his Billie Jean costume?

    I've noticed that the guy who wears the mask taps with the wrong foot. MJ always taps with the left foot, this impersonator taps with the right. You can see it at 4:28. So I don't think it's Mike. Maybe he ran off stage because the mask was slipping or some other mishap, or just forgot his timing.

    Maybe he really needed to pee

    Well, isn't this impersonator supposed to disappear during that trick with the coffin at the end of these Thriller performances (enter coffin, coffin covered by some cloth, it levitates, cloth is pulled off and it is gone, wow!)? It isn't done here, so instead, he exits the stage normally. That clearly isn't Michael in the mask.

    The coffin wasn't used during every performance but even without the coffin the impersonator stuck around until the song was over.

    It just makes more sense for the impersonator to exit earlier so Michael can quickly appear on stage for Billie Jean (since there is no rising stage here, the time to get to stage is shorter). Maybe this show in Bremen was the first without this rising stage, so the impersonator probably didn't know what to do and just exited early for Michael's good.

    Tbh I wish they would have just skipped the whole Werewolf mask thing and just let the backing dancers finish off the song while Michael goes off to change for the next song.

    It works great when you see it live. - Back then everyone in the audience thought it was MJ under the mask - so it was like real magic when MJ appeared ready for Billie Jean in all new clouth/costume. - Live it was great. - Like the disappereance in WDAN before Beat It worked great. - All of a sudden MJ is in new costumes on the cherrypicker. - Amazing live.
    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

    Yes! I agree 100% it's just us looking & examining all his shows with the internet. It's a new day in age & we had nothing like what we had now & those had to be the most amazing tricks ever done in a concert. Especially coming from what he did on the victory tour
