    he didn't dance like he had those problems, in 'this is it' the movie. he danced like he had no problems at all.

    you can't possibly know that, for any artist, unless you are the artist, yourself, and experience it, yourself. that was almost a whole year's worth of performing.

    Re: So...do you guys think he could have done all 50 shows?

    1. He was 50 years old, not 70

    2. The tour was RESIDENCY, flying was MJ's biggest complaint and it's not even present here!

    3. Madonna is doing here most successful tour ever and she's 50.

    4. There are breaks between each show AND there is a very big break in between.

    5. MJ won't be singing and dancing for two straight hours, there is lip syncing, there are other performances by the cast, and there are A LOT of slow songs that don't require dancing.

    6. Autopsy showed MJ being healthy, not fragile.

    This is just another topic because it's just Michael Jackson. MJ was fine, the cocktail of drugs killed him, not the tour.

    his other biggest complaint was that 'touring put me through HELL' and what Michael does on stage cannot be compared to what Madonna and others do onstage. surely, everybody else who dances, doesn't do the type of dancing MJ did...and the pyros and being shot from a cannon underground..and other stuff..and lip synching is fifty fifty, and the dancing he does, more than makes up for it, as if, the art requires it, and no one else could sing at all, if they performed like MJ, with his choreography. and he didn't lip synch nearly as much as some people complained that he did. a lot of times, he ad libbed, at the end of those songs. nobody wants to tour forever, and MJ made it clear, that he didn't. he had his reasons. anybody else would, too. and it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with a person being healthy. it's just about wearing a body out, after a time. it could run the healthiest person into the ground, after a while, no matter how old they are. Janis Joplin died from touring, in her 20s. there's just simply things we can't know, unless we walk in the artist's moccasins.

    MJ would only be doing 2 shows a week. He did a lot more than during Dangerous and HIStory Tours. Yes he hadnt toured in 12 years but he was in 1 location. There wasnt jet lag etc constantly.

    Yes I think he could have.............did he want to? I dont think so.

    I definitely think he could have done the shows, and I think that his passion and attention to detail in This Is It proves that he WANTED to do the shows (well maybe not all 50), but he was definitely excited.

    Watching TII I've noticed he was very concentrated, focus, but I also think he had some pains in his back... it's just my opinion. He wasn't either as young nor as healthy and strong as during his last tour but I truly believe he knew, what he was doing.
    He's Michael Jackson, he breaks every record. In my opinion he could and would make it for us

    50 shows, all in a row, no. I dont know if anyone could do that. Thats serious hard work, especially with what he puts into his shows. I think he could have done 50, if he had a fair amount of breaks inbetween. Even though he still looked stunning, you have to remember he was 50. Im 30 and couldnt do it. And Michael's shows are alot different to Madonnas. His dancing is far more faster paced. I think management kept forgetting that.

    I think they should've stayed with 10 shows..because I think the stress is what killed him in the end..the weight loss to having sleep problems..but if he would've had the right people to aid him (not the "yes" men that were around him like his doctor), then I think he would've gotten through the 50 shows..Just the fact that he was healthy is what makes me sick to my stomach..In my opinion, his death was stupid..and it makes me sad..

    if focused and wanting to then yes,however he needed his rest and off days.

    touring is grueling and takes alot out of you.

    would have been interesting to see it all unfold.

    Based on TII film footage - yes he could have done 50 shows, his voice was magical, his dancing was brilliant as ever and based on the fact that he would only be doing 2 shows a week - then yes he would have done them and enjoyed it, cos thats what he was about, a born entertainer and he loved the fans. x

    I think it would have been rough for a while, and I'm sure he would have been tired. But looking at how many rehersals he was doing, I think he would have made it through all 50.

    thank you. I absolutely agree.
    It was jet lag that was the biggest problem for him on tours.

    although in the rehearsals, i saw him with a lot of energy, i believe that 50 was two much shows, it would had been better less shows in a bigger place.
