Why are Mike's vocals so weak and off key during this entire show?(well more like half show)
He sounds like he can BARELY sing or carry a damn tune here.Heartbreak Hotel and Thriller are the peak of that.Most of the other songs don't sound(vocally) better either.It's so damn bad(NOT IN A GOOD WAY)
His vocals are so bad I can't believe this show even happened...
He only sounds decent on Dirty Diana,Another Part of me and I just can't stop loving you/She's out my life(decent,but NOT any sort of great or amazing)
The only great moments are the ,,Rock with you,, final long note and the falsetto part/s of Human Nature.And even those sound kinda weak.
The horrible quality of the vocals is concerning,in my opinion.
But what do you think?

During early 1988 his vocals started off great during the shows in Kansas & New York (nearly as good as the Australian shows) but then he got sick in St. Louis & he sounded sick until the shows in Turin/Rotterdam. He might've gotten sick again in Rome (possibly why he was wearing a winter coat to rehearsals).

The worst live vocals on the Bad Tour are still better than the best live vocals on the HIStory Tour.
