I went for the more realistic touch, as much as possible. As it was a short gig, I'd throw in a few more medleys

Jam
Wanna Be Startin’ Something
They Don’t Care About Us
Human Nature
Heartbreak Hotel/Smooth Criminal/Dangerous
Off the Wall/Motown medley
Billie Jean
Dirty Diana
Ghosts/Is It Scary/Thriller/Threatened
------------------------
Blood on the Dance Floor
State of Shock/Shake Your Body
------------------------
HIStory/Man in the Mirror

What a cute little thread and above all, an awesome idea :) A special performance in a more private setting sounds interesting.

To be honest wit y'all when I first read the title, my understanding of "private concert" was a bit restrictive, in the sense that I envisioned it as a completely exclusive performance where I was the only member in attendance. Looks like Princess Leia beat me to the........"flippancy" lol.

WARNING:
Flippancy ahead!! :shifty:

Ahem:

Just one number: The horizontal mambo :D

:magicstick

except that my extra naughty self wouldn't limit the "stage" only at the horizontal line :p Not only that, but I would be so generous I would let Michael rest and just enjoy himself for once while I put on a bit of a show for him :cheeky:

Leavin' jokes aside, Magicgirl's suggestion is the closest to my own vision.

I would like to hear some love songs or ballads or something new and unreleased or would leave him make his own choice of songs that would fit the small audience. Anyway This is it, speechless, gone too soon would be wellcomed. If the songs were too rocky and loud I would get deaf in a small concert room and wouldn't want all the songs be like that. Not to mention that he would end up dancing on a table if there was not enough space on the stage there or there was no real stage there.

This is it and Speechless definitely are among my favorite songs, of all time, not just from Michael's catalog.

The whole private concert idea does remind me of a real life incident some three years ago or, as others would put it, three weeks ago. I remember talking to an impresario ordering such a private show, but it wasn't for entertainment reasons. My interests in that particular individual were of a rather scientific nature.

1. Slave to the Rhythm
2. Give in to Me
3. Heartbreaker/You Rock My World/Al Capone
4. Carousel
5. Someone In the Dark
6. Scared of the Moon
7. Human Nature/Fly Away/Free
8. Take Me Back
9. Dreamer/Show You the Way to Go/Music's Takin' Over
10. Man of War
11. Cinderella Stay Awhile/Heaven Knows I Love You Girl
12. Whatever Happens/The Lady In My Life/ For All Time

Bonus medley: Jump for Joy/Forever Came Today/Bless His Soul :D

Let me just say that I don't think I would've made it through the end of the setlist, 'cause I would probably be dead after Give In To Me.

I keep adding songs, I need to stop lol.

First of all, I would probably faint and then thank Michael profusely. Second I wiould tell him my list is a suggestion only based on my favourite songs and that he can play and sing anything he wants. He is Michael Jackson and in my eyes will not be told what to sing by a mere mortal like me. But I realise this thread is about a dream setlist, so here goes

1. Open with Jam
2. Billie Jean
3. Can't stop til you get enough
4. I can't let her get away
then slow it down for a few ballads, so MJ can regain his composure
5. She's out of my life
6. The lady in my life
7. One day in your life
8. Loving You

Then an intermission and a hot foot sequence to follow
9. The way you make me feel
10. Loving never felt so good
11. Hollywood tonight
12. Blood on the Dancefloor
13. They don't care about us
then slow it down
14. Man in the mirror
15. Heal the World
16. Smile
17. Rock with you
If he has energy left
Encore 1. Dangerous
2. Black or white (I am really a closet "Dangerous" fanatic)
3. Thriller

After that Michael is covered with a shower of purple and gold glitter and says "Change the World" as he leaves. Also if he could reference Prince just once and play a Prince jam that sounds like a MJ song like Diamonds and Pearls or Lets Go Crazy.

I have reached pure heaven!

It's not a very MJ thing to ask, but I would ask him to do an intimate acoustic set and sing his ballads and smooth songs with maybe a few band members and background singers ...

1. Human Nature
2. Best Of Joy
3. Rock With You
4. Stranger In Moscow
5. On The Line
6. Remember The Time
7. Time Waits For No One
8. Childhood
9. Butterflies
10. Man In The Mirror

Leave out two songs so he has time to talk to us with his band and share some stories.

For me, the ill-fated ‘HBO Special’ (1995) as it was originally planned to be.

Songs like ‘Beat it’, ‘Dangerous’ (along with Naomi Campbell), ‘Childhood’, ‘Smooth Criminal’, etc. being performed in such an intimate environment (with a different, for the most part, choreography) would have been something totally surrealistic & out of the ordinary.

If it was a private concert I would have loved seeing him do something really intimate like MTV's 'unplugged' or 'storytellers'.. An acoustic concert in a really small venue where it's just him an a guitarist/pianist and some back-up singers..

I would pick songs like:

Human nature
Will you be there
Liberian girl
For all time
The lady in my life
She's out of my life (like the demo version)
I just can't stop loving you
Scared of the moon
Loving you
One day in your life
Butterflies

I don't know if I'd prefer that over a more 'balanced' concert with some up tempo songs and choreographies, I mean.. it is a shame to have someone like Michael perform without dancing or really getting into it like he does with those type of songs, but still I think seeing him do something like this would be awesome too!

Jeez, while I have performances that I'd love to see over others.. It totally change the game for me if he'd do at least a couple songs with an unplugged style.. songs would have not picked would be in the equation.

This is a real challenge and fun too. Here we go:

The title of this special concert is SMILE: One Night With A Man

Special acts before the show include Sam Smith, Chaka Khan and Mary J. Blige lead by an orchestra.

Set List of Pre-Show

Chaka Khan - I Feel For You - Ain't Nobody (ft. Mary J Blige)
Sam Smith - Latch - Lay Me Down - Stay With Me (ft. Mary J Blige)

The Main Show Setlist

(Intro exists samples of Brace Yourself and HIStory with 1 second of all his Short Films playing in the background on a mega video screen counting down ending with a silhouette of Michael and with Michael jumping on stage and standing still for 15-20 seconds)
1. Jam/Scream Mashup
2. Leave Me Alone
3. Come Together
4. Human Nature/Someone Put Your Hand Out Mashup
5. Who is It
(instrumental break performed by the band is a Disney Medley)
6. Give In To Me/Dirty Diana Mashup
7. They Don't Care About Us
8. Can't Let Her Get Away/Remember The Time Mashup
10. Billie Jean
11. Stranger in Moscow
12. Smile
(Ending: Michael is talking about how we can change the world, thanks all his fans and walks off the stage)

There will be a after-party with Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston

The After-Part Setlist

Stevie Wonder performing a special tribute to honour James Brown: Papa Got A Brand New Bag/(I Got You) I Feel Good/Living In America
Stevie Wonder: Master Blaster (Jammin') (ft. surprise guest: Ed Sheeran) and Superstition
Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody - How Will I Know - Love Will Save The Day - Greatest Love of All

-Show ends with fans cheering-

Yep, this is how I imagined an up-close night with Mike. I didn't choose my favorites, but I really wanted to bring the underrated and personal songs forward so that we are experiencing a other MJ. This concert would be private so there is space for 20-30 lucky fans. The acts before and after the show are really fresh too, but that's my opinion. Boy, would that be a night to never ever forget..

Thanks!

I think I would rather laugh with him on stage than seeing him perform like he was in front of 130.000 people. Doing some ****ed up ad-libs in front of him. Battle the shit out of him with my robotic skills. On the Xbox Live, they used to call me "The Ad-Libser" Because they know that's whassup when I'm warming-up to do some Dad Gone It.
MJunivers if you read this, you know what I'm talking about.

Man, I swear to god, that's some real good memories that you'd never forget.
