I'm 31 and I've been a fan since I was in the womb. True story, my mom was 21 when she had me and was at a neighbors card party (1977, back then that's what they did,lol) and they were playing "Show You the Way to Go" by the Jacksons and from what my mom's best friend said, my mom was "trying to dance:dancin: while 9months preggers" and low and behold I wanted to dance too but not in her belly so she went into labor. 8:32pm on Oct. 18th I was born:baby:.. So that is why I tell people that I have been a fan since I was in the womb.. To this day I tell my parents the 2 best bday presents they ever gave me was tickets to the Victory Tour(I went a month before my 7th bday in Philly) and the Bad Tour(the day after my 11th bday in D.C.). So my parents don't even bother to say anything about the fact I am 31 and still have MJ posters,my doll that's still in the box, and other stuff, and how I am "patiently":timer: waiting for him to return to the music scene.
. I would not consider myself a screaming, running, fainting, dying fan. More a person who has a quiet, deep appreciation and respect for who he is and what he does.
SHUT UP!!! :wild::wild: this world is just to damn small.. The first show in Philly got rained out so they did a make up show at the end of September (28th I believe), I know it's sad I remember that..My mom always said that if my memory worked that good during chemistry class as it did remembering MJ's music then I would be a doctor by now..I had 4th row floor seats at the Philly concert, and 2nd row seat at the DC concert..OMG, I had to comment on your post, I am 32 years old and I also went to the Victory concert in Philly, I was eight, and I went to see the Bad concert in D.C (at the capital center) when I was 12!! Small world huh?
I'm 70. I knew Michael "existed" LOL----but during the 70's/80's, I was raising my family.
In the Dangerous era---I listened to that album via a 13 year old grand--daughter.
I also read Moonwalk around that time---and didn't believe Michael was guilty of any molestation charges, even the first time,
Then in 1996, History Tour came to Brisbane Queensland---and I went to see Michael, at 58 years old-----and he changed my life-----I have learnt so much from Mr Michael Jackson----and here I still am.
I have admired Michael's music for as long as I can remember, but I don't think I really started paying more attention to it till early 90's. My admiration has simply grown over the years, going beyond just his music in recent times and truly appreciating who he is as a person. I would not consider myself a screaming, running, fainting, dying fan. More a person who has a quiet, deep appreciation and respect for who he is and what he does.
