    Or even better. They could throw in some Youtube clips of fans dancing while dressed like Michael. Everyone would be none the wiser.

    Yeah and they could also animate John Branca into the Beat It choreography

    Interesting thread. I've never actually watched the amateur recordings so I had no idea it was this badly edited. I wouldnt mind an official release edited properly this time.

    Actually, it's better to replace Michael's vocals with Branca's. Now that will earn commercial success.

    Having Branca on vocals might give them TOO much success. They better play it safe and get Jason Malachi instead

    Agreed. Michael and his brothers made some awesome songs during 1980-84. they need to be talk about more then just heartbreak hotel. we need all footage of all his tours with his brothers. if they can't give us his solo tours. i'll be happy with those too.

    In my opinion this concert wasn't the best but it was great to see him on stage one last time not to mention after the 9/11 attacks and with his brothers. it would of been nice to see it again before he left this earth.

Honestly, if you're gonna cut a show together like this, please have some discipline .
    Michael loved it to see his fans in the crowd it made him happy.

    It's true that they re-recorded J5 songs except I'll be there & Dancing Machine. In Can You Feel It, you can clearly hear that those "Let me hear you new york" and "I know you can do it" were live, but the actual singings were dubbed. Also in The Love You Save, the line "darling take it slow" was sung in falsetto in original melody in both concerts, but the official version it was sung in real voice, and the melody was changed lower, that's a clear evidence.

    In TWYMMF intro, they substituted the entire verse into re-recorded audios, except "paint this town". The chorus was kept entirely live tho. In the main part of TWYMMF, the playback was playing and the mic was on too, MJ sometimes chose to sing along with the playback.

    Also they removed quite a few parts. The end of Beat It was similar to previous tours, where all the instruments were played loudly together for a while, and then MJ jumped and the song ended with a pinkish firework. But in the official version, the pinkish firework ended right after the last line "It doesn't matter who's wrong or right".

    Forgot about the Beat It outro too. It sucks that there were so many changes made to this concert that it's hard to keep track of them all! An extra 15 minutes would've went a long way here, but obviously the show was cut to fit a TV timeslot.

    Especially those singers that were singing their own song.
    It's strange to hear when you expected to watch a tribute concert.

    He also looked very embarrassed on stage, when for example in the very beginning (in one of the two shows) he scratches his head right after removing his helmet (for the ‘Can You Feel It’ performance).

    In many cases journalists get free passes (by the organizers of the live shows) under the condition to write positive reviews about these shows.

    This seems to be the case also with most of these journalists who were there in these two 2001 MSG shows.

    It appears the reason is that the ‘Dangerous’ performance (with its dark lyrics, and its dark on stage concept where his back up dancers wear red, ‘bloody’ gloves) would not fit the celebratory mood of those 2001 MSG shows.
