    I mean he sang about gang warfare, racism etc. Hardly celebratory in theme.

    I mean, he could've just been fixing his hair. He wasn't even looking at the audience yet, so this doesn't make sense to me.

    Pardon me, mj_frenzy, I don’t mean to start stuff but I don’t see why you have to assume there’s a detailed reason behind everything. I highly doubt the reason he didn’t perform Dangerous was because of the celebratory mood. Why couldn’t it have just been because of time constraints or more simpler, he just didn’t think about it? That’s enough of a satisfactory explanation.

    Were there songs that were supposed to be on the setlist but ended up not being performed? There must have been revisions made to it prior to the shows.

    I think One Day in Your Life was rehearsed. If it was then it's criminal that it didn't make it into the show

    Bad and Thriller had jackets made but were cut for time reasons. Thriller was all black.

    lmao that definitely looks more like he was fixing his hair than "scratching his head"

    It was going to be a duet with Whitney Houston.

    WOW! I never heard about the Bad outfit.
    Is there any pictures? I remember there is a picture of the Black Thriller jacket by Bush.

    I need these rehearsals so bad. I know Hamid Moslehi has them, Charles Thomson has seen them at Hamid’s house. He said that Michael rehearsed at MSG and also in a dance studio with his brothers, and that the rehearsals were more interesting than the actual performance. I’d love to be the judge of that

    I've heard of Thriller being on the setlist (cut due to time constraints, right?), but was Bad actually planned to be performed? Is there photo of the outfit or is it just the original outfit he wore on the Bad and Dangerous Tours?

    I remember when a small snippet of a Billie Jean rehearsal (it was just part of the whole suitcase thing and a only a little bit of the song's intro) was shared last year from someone who may have the full rehearsals. I think the source was MJ's bodyguard or something. The rehearsals would definitely be interesting to watch, especially if Thriller and other songs that didn't make the final setlist were rehearsed

    During his rehearsals (with his brothers, his solo sets, and the three duets) for the MSG shows, Michael Jackson was feeling much better, compared to how he was feeling during the two actual shows.

    As Jackie Jackson and Randy Jackson also stated, the brothers (including Michael Jackson) rehearsed together very little, because they wanted to be on stage as natural as possible and not too staged or contrived.

    On September 6th, 2001 (in the morning), Michael Jackson rehearsed his three duets (Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, NSYNC).

    An orchestral/string issue during the rehearsals (as confirmed by Greg Phillinganes who was there) led to the cancellation of his ‘One Day In Your Life’ duet with Whitney Houston.

    Later (in the evening of the same day) Michael Jackson took a break from the rehearsals because he had to appear at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards for his brief, surprise performance.

    He never rehearsed ‘Thriller’ and ‘BAD’ for the MSG shows, because he was never meant to perform these two songs in these MSG shows.
