It's sad how later in his career Off The Wall songs started being performed as medley or not performed at all. I'd rather Don't Stop Til You Get Enough and/or Rock With You performed in full than to have them be put together as part of a medley.
Blinding Lights by The Weeknd sounds like Forest Fire by a-ha
Sussudio by Phil Collins sounds like 1999 by Prince
Part Time Lover by Stevie Wonder sounds like Maneater by Hall and Oates
Misunderstanding by Genesis sounds like Hold The Line By Toto
If anyone's got more to add please do so.
For me the worst part about the lip syncing on the HIStory Tour was how obvious it was. Like on In The Closet where Michael would go from an out of breath speaking voice into perfect falsetto vocals. Or when you see the backing singers lip syncing to Michael's vocals on Stranger In Moscow.
On the DWT I thought Michael sounded fine and not out of breath on ISCSLY, SOOML, J5 Medley, Billie Jean, WDAN and Beat It. And the Man In The Mirror adlibs sounded awesome.
WBSS and Human Nature were the only 2 songs where he sounded out of breath to me. Which is strange because those were...
My guess is that This Is It would have been similar to the Dangerous Tour when it came to live vocals.
He wasn't doing 50 dates in a row. There was about a 2-3 day break in between each date and then about a 2-3 month break before starting up the 2nd half of the ''tour''
And what Michael would...
I think the reason why Thriller was lip synced on the DWT and HWT is because during the last half of the song it's not Michael performing because he's getting ready for the next song (Billie Jean or Beat It). For TII I don't think there was going to be any stand ins wearing that cheesy werewolf...
She Drives Me Wild is cool and has some of the best lyrics Michael's ever written and Can't Let Her Get Away is nice but it drags on for too long. It's a 5 minute song that could have been trimmed down to 3 minutes.
Cardiff 1992 was interesting because apparently it rained during the show which caused some tech issues. So Michael talked to the audience a lot more than he usually did.
But both shows would be awesome to see.
