Today in MJJ HIStory

1992 - Michael perform last of 8 dates at Tokyo Dome in Tokyo during the Japanese leg of Dangerous tour attending 45,000 fans.

On December 31st in Tokyo, Japan, Slash joined Michael onstage for a special performance of “Black or White”. It was the last concert of the first leg of the Dangerous World Tour.

1996 - Michael perform HIStory concert at Jerudong Park Amphitheatre in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei attending 60,000 fans.

Never televised, but known to exist as a rare promo item as with Royal Concert. Along with the latter performance, it is one of the rarest known concerts to exist. Private collectors have obtained the concert on VHS in high quality but have never released full concert footage; these fans have remained controversial for refusing to share this and the Royal Concert with the fan community among other issues. In October 2008 a poor-quality VCD copy (also additionally compressed and watermarked) was uploaded onto the internet by a fan in Brunei who obtained the concert from a stage crew. Video quality was fair and the sound was badly encoded with a low rumbling appearing when bass was played. Starting from February 2009, the uncompressed and unwatermarked files from the same VCD source had been uploaded, though the sound quality is still the same. As of 2010 this concert is still only available in poor quality. Like Malaysia, most people in Brunei are Muslim, so crotch-grabbing was also removed in this concert and is also obscured by camera angles that are different from most other concerts. This concert is also noted for the first verse of "Scream" being sung live. The curtain used in "Smooth Criminal" and the crane for "Beat It" & "Earth Song" were not present during this concert (though they were during the Royal Concert)

2007 - The loan on the Sony/ATV music catalog is refinanced which provides 25 millions dollars in cash to Michael.
