Classic - Must have for sure.,
This review is from: Michael Jackson: Live in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour (DVD)
The Dangerous World Tour set is a wise compromise : MJ sings most of his mainstream hits, and the global experience is something between pure rock concert and hollywood musical.
Despite the odd outfits (remember this weird gold top ??), MJ dances and sings his heart out for more than 2 hours during this Goliath-ic gig.
Mj hardcore fans will tell you they prefer the Bad Tour concert, and they are right, since this previous tour was more about music.
The Dangerous Tour is THE MJ show to recommend to any non fan, new fan, or any other newbie.
Most of the tricks and ideas were core elements of the previous tours, but here they seem more polished and sophisticated.
The Dangerous Tour : Michael plays Jackson : the monster "toaster" + long "strike a pose" entrance is, so far, the best opening ever staged in a Jackson concert.
MJ comes in from nowhere, and, at the end, leaves the audience speechless, when riding a solid and sophisticated nasa-style equipment that, don't get me wrong, definitely flies him to the moon.
Hardline, Magic, State of the Art : Michael Jackson live is all that, and even more...
Main low point : the gradual and disappointing lip-sync routines : Jam and Smooth Criminal are ok though (those kind of songs are so hard to sing AND dance live that MJ has some excuse), but why using this "technique" on ALL the Dangerous Songs (Black Or White, Heal The World, Will You Be There etc..)?
Most end of those songs are sung live anyway, but, knowing the man has one of the most amazing voice in the History of popular music, it's a shame the staging focuses more on what we see instead of what we hear.
Note : Of course, No Bonus included, like most Michael Jackson DVD releases...
