Michael Jackson Live at Wembley Show in Support of the Album Bad

Michael Jackson Performs “Live at Wembley” to Support the Album “Bad”

July 16 marks the 28th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s “Live at Wembley” concert. Documenting a show from the 16-month world tour which was mounted in support of Jackson’s follow-up to “Thriller” called “Bad,” the footage was almost lost forever until it was found among the King of Pop’s belongings after his death. While the master tapes have yet to be unearthed, the DVD that is currently available was made from a personal VHS copy found Jacko’s private collection. Much like a professional athlete, Jackson would watch these “game tapes” to critique his performance and that of the dancers, musicians and members of the crew.


The July 16 show was one of seven that Michael played at Wembley Stadium on the Bad World Tour. That night roughly 72,000 fans were in attendance, including Princess Diana and Prince Charles. The crowd hit such a frenzy that 130 people reportedly passed out during the show.
