Since concert talk is all the rage right now.

My absolute favorite live performance is "another part of me". Followed by Dirty Diana, Bad (real live obv.), Billie Jean (victory), lovely one (any tour is good), Human Nature (victory), gone too soon, Get it Together (love the dance routine), one day in your life (live in Mexico, show me the way to go, keep on dancing (destiny tour), she's out of my life (triumph tour), things I do for you (any tour it was played)

I have a strong feeling TWYMMF (bad tour) is going to be part if this but I'll have to wait for a live performance to make sure.
Same goes for DSTYGE but I need better footage for that.

This list is way too short and we have to thank the Estate and Motown for that because they release **** all concert footage of MJ/J5. Big middle finger up!

There are so many good ones but one of my favs is definitly Workin Day And Night (any tour).

Dirty Diana I never liked that much live, because of the different rhythm that he sings the verses in.

I actually really like Off The Wall BAD tour.

BUT - Human Nature has always been one of my live favorites - from all tours actually - This Is It was amazing too!

Billie Jean - when sung live - is amazing.

Shake Your Body (Down to the ground) from BAD tour is amazing .- so much energy. The break-down afterwards and the dance with MJ and one of the dancers. - And MJ singing bits of Don't Stop till You get Enough. - Thats amazing.

Instead of releasing a concert from a specific tour, how about releasing "Best of Michael Jackson," which features his best performance of each song?
