    I always thought that was the case but based on what we could hear from that little snippet of the last full dress rehearsal in pensacola before the American leg, it was playback (although he was singing live underneath the playback). This makes me believe that MITM was always meant to be half mimed/half live.

    A show from the American portion would be my choice considering all the pointers in this thread, and especially because one in Europe has already been officially released. There is no full show not held in Europe or Asia available to watch. It would not do harm to see the ways those shows function in comparison to their European buddies, take for example Michael entering the stage for "Thriller" from that little walkway (I recall viewing a little clip of this somewhere on YouTube) instead of swinging in on a rope. These little differences really could be cool to see for a change.

    I'm curious of what was shot by MTV in Kansas & NY. Those songs from Kansas & NY sound like HQ soundboard audio. The Video is HQ Beta tape. So I would assume full releasable audio exists from those concerts even if it isn't multitrack. If that is the case, MSG 88 would be an iconic USA venue for release. DD was good enough for official release. Why not the rest?

    The Dangerous rehearsal video of MITM is by far my favorite performance of the song - vocal wise.

    I know he does not sing 100 %, I know it's just a rehearsal. But it still amazes me. It's still great.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    Also, the backup vocals in early 1988 US concerts are completely live. In European leg, the backup vocalists sang live over the playback.

    I'd love to see the American leg of the tour (preferably New York) with that being said I'm glad we got to see Wembley first, because the spectacle, the frenzy, the mania, was what the Bad Tour was all about

    As a show it looks and sounds amazing. MJ's dancing is more spontaneous, in songs like APOM, which is great.
    I think Mike was performing similar to how he performed in Japan to a degree, because the audience was smaller
    The only thing I'm not keen on, is the shows that where "in the round", were MJ keeps going up that walkway round the back of the stage and the audience at the front can't really see him, I bet Michael didn't like that aspect of those shows
