    While the US leg has more live vocals, the European leg has better staging, better costumes and the band sounds better. Compare Another Part Of Me from the US shows to the European shows. The European shows sound much better.

    Maybe the best solution would be to release a European show and then have Smooth Criminal, BAD and The Way You Make Me Feel from the US shows as a bonus feature?

    I'm now wondering if the estate had gave us an edited bad tour show in the first place, would they have used only EU or USA footage? Or mix them both? I would assume they would just use EU because of the better crowd shots/lighting. If the edited show looked like that HQ ending Billie jean snippet from Wembley then I would have no complaints about the quality. I'd also hope MSG was fully recorded on Beta. Not just DD. It's interesting how MJ chose that performance for release on tape but APOM on film...

    As far as we know, that film footage actually comes from the March 5th concert. Check out this thread I made a while back: https://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/t...88-Dates/page3

    Either way, if they shot that concert on film in full, it would be absolutely incredible to watch it!

    Interesting, thanks for that. Well from what we've heard March 5th is still a great show. The BAD Tour really was the epitome of Michael's performing career.

    Wasn't it also made available on Itunes as well?

    I don't see it there anymore. I noticed that the Wembley live album is there as part of some The Indispensable Collection. I didn't know it was released separately from the Bad 25 Deluxe edition.

    The US leg is better than the European one.

    I would really like to see one of the American shows. Landover amateur shot concert is incredible. The tempo is great and MJ has tons of energy. Also it would be great to have an arena show as they are a little bit more intimate. MSG also for Smooth Criminal live vocals.

    I agree. The first US Leg has

    - 98% Live singing. The only exception being MITM (even though you can clearly hear him singing underneath the playback and that he comes in earlier than usual.

    - Better live vocals

    - More spontaneous dancing (compare APOM from the US leg to the European leg. Almost all European performances of APOM are identical)

    - Better venues (Because of the venues being indoor it has a much more warmer and controlled sound. The sound isn't bouncing everywhere)

    - Higher keys for songs i.e Dirty Diana

    - Better tracklist arrangement

    I Kinda liked the US/indoor stages better.Meanwhile the atmoshpere seems better during the European shows.
    Of course the first shows have more energy since everyone is fresh at the new chapter,
    But it could be more differences.like slight dance move changes,Notes,or even Instrumentals.
    I Don't have any specific US Concert on my whislist. but at this rate.anything from the first US leg.
    There are some many good things to reveal,yet hard to find it.

    Remember we still can’t really confirm if MITM was potentially sung live in Kansas City. It could make sense to sing it live a couple of times before resorting to playback from there on out

    He didn’t sing it live in rehearsal. So, I doubt he would have done it in the show.

    I think the only time it was sung live would be the Dangerous Tour rehearsal?
