Michael Jackson Extremely Rare 1996 Official Laser disc of the live concert performed on July 16, 1996 at Jerudong Park in Brunei, some months before the HIStory Tour kick-off.
The Sultan of Brunei who hired Michael for his son's birthday, produced a kit including this laser disc, a booklet with 2 audio live CDs of the concert and a VHS. All this material was given to a few guests only and never put for sale
Before the HIStory Tour started in September 1996 Michael Jackson performed a one-off in Brunei on July 18th. This was a free concert at the Jerudong Park Amphitheatre in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei. It was in celebration of the 50th birthday of Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei, and was attended by the Brunei royal family, though the Sultan himself did not attend.
The concert was taped by Nocturne Productions, Inc who were responsible for filming all of his concerts. Apocalypse Sound use an excellent transfer. The video is pristine and the audio very clear and enjoyable stereo.
Much of the concert resembled Jackson’s Dangerous World Tour, including his outfit and the set list, keeping the details of the upcoming HIStory Tour a close secret. This would be the final peformancs of “Jam“, “Human Nature“, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” and “She’s out of My Life” at a Jackson concert (although all, except the latter were rehearsed for This Is It; the latter was rehearsed but not performed at the 1999 Michael Jackson & Friends concert in Korea).
This concert is the live debut of “You Are Not Alone” and “Earth Song”.
