    Here is it

    Michael is a healthy person, he loves performing, he was kinda skinny, but for a 50 shows! and 1-2 days between each show, i would say that would have really got him really very exhausted, and we all know Michael doesn't eat well just few sandwiches even though we heard that he brought salads at the rehearsals and he doesn't sleep enough because he wants to do the best job, and that would also made him worry alot and getting worried how show the world the greatest show on earth, he might ended up that fine, that's kinda hard, even to anyone, and i believe in him, that's all

    So .. Yeah, I think he was ready for 50, with ( alot of breaks here and there and
    enough sleep with more healthy food) "KFC" JK

    No fights =) with love L.O.V.E



    Missing you always Michael.

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

    Yes, I do think he was healthy and could have performed all 50 shows. The good thing is that the shows were all in one location and he didn't have the stress and lag time of traveling. I do think that given the power behind his performances and his age, the shows should have been delayed a couple of more months. I agree with Lou Ferrigno who was training Michael, he did need some more time to get his strength and flexibility back to 100%. According to the LA coroners report and prior medical evaluations, Michael was a very healthy 50 year old. The problem comes in when the doctor enters the picture in May. I think had it not been for this need or dependency of a sleep aid, Michael would still be here. He had become way too thin though. We really don't know if he wasn't eating properly or if something he was given by the doctor was affecting him. I do believe this would have been a spectacular show. I enjoyed the movie, but I really wanted to see him on stage one more time.

    Yes i think he would have been able to do them all! Michael is a perfectionist there is no way he would have gone on that stage opening night unprepared for what lay ahead, Like someone else said in the thread its not like he had one show after another, he didnt have to travel. It would have been perfect for him! God why did i even think about this!



    "Music to magic to end, I'll play you over and over again" I love you so much Michael!!!

    I don't think we are the ones to judge and say yes or no.
    The only person that would know is Michael. Not us, Not a Dr, Not his family, Not AEG
    Only Michael would have known what he was and wasn't capable of doing.

    Based on the info we have now and seeing all the energy in TII i believe he could have.

    Had he not died from an overdose I think we would have seen some spectacular shows.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

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

    I voted no.
    To be real honest I always believed he would get through July and August, then break down and cancel September, and come back in January. Not because I didn't believe in Michael, but simply because I was being realistic. Nothing ever happened the way Michael planned it to happen so I was kinda skeptic. However I NEVER expected the summer to turn out the way it has.

    Seeing This Is It in the theatre did make me realize that Michael was stronger than we thought, though. Determined, and working hard for US.

    I read that Kenny Ortega ,or if it was Travis Payne ,said that the last week he really thought Michael could do it .He also said that Michael said he could do it.
    I guess they meant that he could do 50 shows.
    I think that the last week they began to feel that the show was getting ready too and then they got more excited.

    I also read that Michael wanted a special opus book just for this is it.

    I think he could do it.
    There were going to be more time in London to rest than during the rehearsals and I think he could put up some weight than.I think he used a lot of energy for the rehearsals and couldn´t eat enough to keep it up.
    He had kids now and he used to eat lunch with them.

    Yes, After watching TII and now knowing what we know, I believe he could have completed the shows. I do not believe he was "too skinny", and according to reports he was a healthy man before leaving this realm. Keep in mind people, weight didn't kill Michael, Michael was killed at the hands of another. So with that said, Yes, Yes he could have.

    Yes, I do believe he could. I also think that he was up for something with his brothers. God knows what. Skinny? So what, I'm skinny. Some of my friends are skinny. Doesn't really matter that much.
