Improving MJ stuff on Wikipedia

Hi guys,

I do quite a bit of editing on Wikipedia, on a range of subjects. Recently I've been working on:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_concert_tours_by_Michael_Jackson_and_the_Jackson_5

Examples: I've created the graphical timeline for the musicians, and also the world map. However, sometimes there is a lack of information, or I might make a typo.

I'm wondering if anybody here can spot an error (eg countries he/they played that are not shaded on the map).

Also, there seems to be a lack of information around the Goin Places era. For example, when did Johny Jackson stop playing drums? When did Jonathan Moffett start? Was there anybody between the two?

Also, if anybody has some ideas for stuff that could be added...

I've made some progress. I've found out that Tony Lewis comes between the two of them.

But now the question becomes "When did Tony Lewis start playing drums? Was there anybody between the two?"

Somebody must have some tour programmes from about 1977?

Nobody have any info?

On a related note, I've now made the tour map interactive. Trouble is, Wikipedia doesn't allow javascript. So if anybody is running a website and can host SVG images, let me know.

Every fan here should read (and improve) a Michael Jackson's wiki page.
It's the only way to preserve and share Michael's legacy among people who are not aware of his humanitarian actions beyond his successful career.
(Too many haters out there...)

Here's one I really need help with.

In the Category system, there are categories for Songs in each key, like A-minor, D#, etc. So we can add one to every song. This will make it easier to find songs, and they will be grouped together. The trouble is there are literally hundreds of them!

Here's where to start:
