what are the odds they will play something unleaked?
I hope so, even if nothing gets leaked it would be nice to hear about songs from the Invincible-Post Invincible era for a change, it's never talked about in Brad Sundberg's seminars.

Brad Sundberg wasn't involved with the invincible album, also the main purpose of his seminars isnt playing rare demos, it's about sharing his experience and stories of working with Michael, and the demos he plays is just something he does as apart of the seminar.

If you're referring to demos, they dont really do that, usually at these events they show multitracks.
In the meantime, have any of you asked via the contact form if more audio than just multitracks will be played? Paying 240 Euro for stories and multitracks is too much money for me personally, I would only pay that much money if I could hear unreleased work-in-progress versions of the history songs or even unreleased tracks.

This one actually sounds more like multitracks and stories to me:


I think the seminars are more audience-driven than anything – that’s why we like questions. We take a question, then we go into that direction. We want to talk about what they want to hear, what they’re curious about. But we don’t have a schedule like for these fifteen minutes, we’re going to talk about this or that. Still, we’ll have a list of songs because I have to make sure I have those with me. I think that the people love to hear isolated tracks, just Michael’s vocals, or just the background vocals. Then we can explain how all these things were added together and make a final song, but it’s not like when your president gives a speech for an hour. We also want the people involved. They really like hearing his voice, and how much of his whole body he put into his vocal performance.

This is the beginning of what will be years of sharing with Michael’s fans, what he was like, his creative process and a look inside his professional and private life. We will have guests that also worked with him and will be able to use music, photos and video/film in our presentations. Michael has the most amazing fans all around the world and they all want to know him better, and they will.

I am in touch with people who've been to these events, I know exactly what has been played. Like I said mainly just multitracks, they avoid and beat around the bush when it comes to unreleased songs/demos, they focus primarily on multitracks, mainly the songs Brad Buxer has worked on.

Thanks for info! Still wonder why playing work-in-progress demo versions is not the focus. That playing unreleased songs can be a problem because of legal issues, I can understand in view of a later release and the danger of a leak in LQ. But Sony and the Estate don't seem to be interested in releasing work-in-progress/early demos, so where is the problem in playing them at such seminars? And if it's really a legal problem and Sony and the Estate want to make money from it, then they can get together and set a fee. Really, the most exciting thing for me is to hear the creation of the song musically and not only the telling about it.

Message from Steven Paul Whitsitt, Michael Jackson photographer during the HIStory era:

"I wanted to send out this personal message in advance because I want you to know what I will be bringing with me. When I worked with MJ, at the conclusion of a shoot, or during breaks when we were shooting the short films, Michael would look over the Photos I had shot and would select his favorites. I would order proof prints of these photos as selected. I recently found a box of these proofs in my Archives. In many cases the photos are very similar to each other with very subtle differences. Each 8”x10” (20.32cmx25.4cm) print was hand selected by Michael and professionally printed at the best photo labs in Los Angeles, making each of these prints a very valuable item for any MJ Collection. I will be making some of these available for purchase for the first time ever in Cologne."

Did anyone here go to the first seminar? I have a few questions:

1- What album or period of MJ's life did Michael Prince and Brad Buxer talk about?
2- Did they play videos during the seminar?
3- Did they also play any demo or unreleased song, if so, what demo/unreleased song?
4- Did they play multitracks?

Thank you in advance.
