Editorial Reviews

Michael Jackson's legendary July 16, 1988 concert at Wembley Stadium. The concert is not a compilation of performances, but rather one complete show, exactly as Michael performed it for Prince Charles, Princess Diana and the 72,000 fans who were in the audience for that night s sold out show. The DVD was sourced from Michael Jackson's personal VHS copy of the performance as shown on the JumboTrons during the concert. This footage was only recently unearthed and is the only known copy of the show to exist. The visuals have been restored and the audio quality enhanced so that fans can share in the excitement of that famous night.

First things first. I've been wanting this Bad tour for so long that I felt the day would never come and it finally has. I woke up at 7:30Am just to be at Target at 8am when they opened to buy this thing. Now that I finally have it I'm in disbelief.

Over the period when this DVD wasn't available I searched the internet, high and low, to the farthest corners of the world wide web just to find footage of this epic concert and I can't tell you how many horrible bootlegs of this tour I've had to endure. The only one worthy of viewing as far as quality wise was the Bad in Japan tour September 12, 1987 at the Krokuen Stadium, which is available on youtube. It is an actual edited and directed show and the quality was like a worn out VHS tape at best. I dreamed of when an official copy would come out.

Now we got this! This show is exceptional! The quality is super VHS with a good job at converting it to DVD. It looks way better than how it would look on your VCR but don't expect for it to be high definition or anything. I'm pretty sure some technical freaks are going to complain, claiming a better transfer could have been done but I doubt it. I've transferred VHS to DVD before and in my opinion this is one of the best jobs I have ever seen. You also have to remember this VHS tape is 25 years old! And yes, this is far far far better than youtube quality, trust me. I've seen all those youtube concerts this is way better.

AND DON'T LISTEN TO THAT REVIEWER WHO SAYS THAT THE PRODUCERS FORMATTED THIS INTO WIDESCREEN AND THAT IT STRETCHES THE IMAGE TO MAKE MJ LOOK AWKWARD!! THAT PERSON IS A FOOL WHO DOESN'T EVEN KNOW THE FEATURES OF THEIR OWN TV! This dvd is formatted in the 4:3 aspect ratio, not 16:9 letterbox!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOLLLYYY EFFF!!! September 15, 2012
By Romi
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ok so I'm not for cussing or anything like that but When I saw Another Part Of Me clip, I dont know what my reaction was but ppl. around me deff. thought I was Crazy like cirqe du soleil. NOT kidding!

I Love Michael Jackson for MORE than his music but on this review, I'm gonna let you in a little secret. Are You ready??? Well here it is. Michael Jackson Is AN AMAZING (For a lack of a better word) PERFORMER, ENTERTAINER etc... He's got the WHOLE PACKAGE! I've been Obsessed with HIS DANGEROUS TOUR Vids for a while, then His HIStory tour... Then Went back to the ol' days VICTORY Tour... etc...

And NOW WE GET TO SEE MICHAEL AT HIS PEAK! But 1990's was a PEAK for him too. Tell me if you have NOT watched the Dangerous tour and thought F***ing AMAZING! Well THIS BAD TOUR is F***ing AMAZING (X 10). A fellow fan said that she works @ HMV in the UK and that her Manager had put thIS VERY Same DVD on EVERY TV there and People who were gonna walk out stayed there just watching and ppl. even Kids who seemed indifferent also glanced Once, twice, three times and More @ the Video... MICHAEL IS THE ONLY ARTIST that Makes you STOP Where You are and watch him even if you have a lot of things on ur Mind!

SO people If you dont get this DVD, or The Deluxe box set for BAD 25, I canNOT tell you enough How you're Missing Out on something WONDERFUL. IT Might even change your life!

I hope to hear from more reviewers SOON! <3

L.o.v.e.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE MJ LIVE DVD WE'VE WAITED FOR! September 17, 2012
By Zak
Format:DVD
Nothing against the DVD from the Dangerous tour, but this DVD is 10 times better than that DVD! This is the first authorized release of the Bad tour on DVD in honor of the 25th anniversary of that album taped from Wembley Stadium in the summer of 1988 with Princess Diana attending. The non HD 80's video quality does not take away from such a brilliant performance of a master at the peak of his performing prowless. The video is restored to the best of its ability, the sound is mixed amazingly and no fast camera shots on the crowd or much loud crowd noise overdubs like Budapest only focusing on MJ with great camera work and clear vocals and music. This is the MJ live DVD that us diehard fans have been waiting on and are so happy that this was found by the estate with it being released and to be enjoyed by all generations of fans for years to come. This is definitely a must buy for not just MJ fans like me, but also lovers of all music and those who want to see a dynamic performance by the greatest live performer of all time. Long live the King of Pop!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great show! September 30, 2012
By Suzy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you are not one of those people who are so spoiled by modern technology that they are only able to enjoy something if it's HD/Blue-ray quality then I highly recommend this concert!

Jackson's Estate did not make a secret of the fact that they could only find an old VHS in his personal collection from which they could restore the video of this concert. The camera angles aren't perfect either as what you see on the video is what was recorded for the Jumbotrons during the concert. The audio on the other hand was recorded on multitracks, so that's great.

Despite of these handicaps I still rate this concert 5 stars because Jackson's mesmerizing performance more than makes up for them! Surprisingly the stage show is rather purist, especially compared to what we see in many concerts today. No spectacular stage scenes, no high-tech effects, no laser shows, no fireworks, not even an army of dancers (there are only four, besides Jackson himself), no strip shows, no pole dancers. There are a couple of costume changes (like the inevitable warewolf and zombies in Thriller), but we cannot talk about a parade of spectacular costumes either. Mainly it's just Jackson and his singing and dancing. And that is good so! Actually it's one of the most impressive things to me about this concert and Jackson himself: that the concert has a kind of magic feel to it, you just cannot take your eyes off the screen for two straight hours, it's highly entertaining, enjoyable, uplifting, breath-taking, mesmerizing - and that's all down to Jackson and his talent, charisma and stage presence and not to stage gimmicks and high-tech! He was a truly great performer.

What the hell happened to 35mm film version?
Do you know that the original source for this ,that is, how the event was recorded, wasn't 35mm film? I haven't seen this yet, so I'm not commenting either way.
