    We know MJ wanted to sing live as much as possible but I really doubt it would have worked out that way considering his age and mainly health at the time.

    I really don't care about the live singing. HIStory tour is my favorite tour

    So do you prefer lip-syncing to live singing? I think live singing is much more fun to watch. It makes concerts more exciting.

    History tour is bottom for me. I even prefer the dancing in every other tour (I prefer to watch power and energy over sharpness)

    I don't prefer lip syncing any more than I prefer live singing. I just don't really care if it's live or not

    Couldn’t agree more. For me, the HIStory Tour is the only thing in Michael’s career that is completely disposable. The vocals are mediocre at best (and atrocious at worst), the miming is embarrassing for a performer of Michael’s creed, the dancing is average, and the set list and staging are borderline terrible. (Putting “In the Closet” in a medley with “Scream” and “They Don't Care About Us”? Not making “Blood on the Dance Floor” a fully-choreographed piece? Not dropping “Heal the World” once “Earth Song” was released? Never once performing “Childhood,” “Smile,” or “2 Bad”?)

    The Bad and Dangerous tours, even with their shortcomings, felt like the product of Michael and his team putting in work to make something memorable and exciting. The HIStory Tour feels like an afterthought, and it’s exceedingly obvious that he didn’t want to do it.

    Wikipedia says:

    "The purpose of the tour was to raise funds for children in Kosovo, Africa and elsewhere"

    I agree with many of these but I wouldn't call the dancing is average. I think the Billie Jean end dance was best on HIStory Tour.

    Things I like about the HIStory Tour:
    1. The costume. I thought it was an improvement over the Dangerous Tour costume. Plus it's shiny. And I like shiny things.
    2. The setlist. I like that a lot of songs from the HIStory album was performed (Even if some where put together as a medley)
    3. The Billie Jean end dance. Probably the best ones he ever did.

    I haven't watched a HIStory Tour show entirely in well over 5 years, there's nothing that attracts me back to it.
    When I last watched one, I think it was Helsinki, I was looking at my phone, not really paying attention to it. I hate to say it but I turned it off after Dangerous
    There's moments of magic but that pales in comparison to Bad and Dangerous were almost both shows were 2 hours of magic
    You can see Michael's heart isn't in it like it was in previous tours

    I watch an MJ concert every single day, and 5 out of 7 times it's a HIStory tour concert. I'm so grateful there are so many concerts available from this tour, but wouldn't mind having more

    History tour felt like a last minute decision. Michael started the Bad Tour literally days after the release of Bad. Dangerous tour started 7-8 months after the release of Dangerous. But History tour started 15 months after the release of History. Ideally, you want to start touring when the album is still new or relatively new. When it’s still selling well and people are still talking about it. After 15 months, History wasn’t a new album anymore. The fact that History tour started more a year after the release of History tells me that Michael didn’t really want to do the tour and that his heart wasn’t truly in it.
