Full Show Friday: Michael Jackson 1987

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week..Michael Jackson!
Sure last week was the massive Madonna, but this week we go to the King of Pop and while we went big all of February we end it now because it doesn't get any bigger then this. Michael Jackson performing at perhaps the height of his career, during the mammoth Bad Tour. This show is from Brisbane, Australia, performed 11/25-28/87.

It finds Michael really working it and going back through things with a Jackson 5 Medley and a full rare Jacksons song "Heartbreak Hotel". While we rarely ever throw on MJ, this is a damn fine show and proof of his power as a performer. Pro-sound (if a bit warped by VHS age) and pro footage (same) with a setlist below. Enjoy:

"Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"
 "Things I Do For You"
"Off the Wall"
"Human Nature"
"Heartbreak Hotel"
"She's Out Of My Life"
 Jackson 5 Medley - "I Want You Back"/"The Love You Save"/"I'll Be There"
 "Rock With You"
"Lovely One"
"Working Day and Night"
"Beat It"
"Billie Jean"
"Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)"
 "I Just Can't Stop Loving You"
