Yes Lizzie I booked the MJ tickets for 14th July then Leonard announced Liverpool. After some delicate negotiations I persuaded Megan to let my niece have those tickets and I got a couple for August. When Michael postponed his first few concerts that included the July ones so Megan was quite happy she had gone along with that. Then obviously he died so that was that. MJ was Megan's childhood hero but I was not being dragged kicking and screaming to see him I was looking forward to it and seeing the snippet just released of the rehersals it looked like it was going to be a good concert.

Quasand I agree with you totally about Joe Jackson that was not a man bereft by his son dying that was someone who had lost one golden goose and was now promoting another. The man is 80 what a vile person he is.

Exactly, Paula and Quasand ~ self-centered and abusive :evil: :twisted: :evil: . Michael paid the price. I hope he is powerless to exact even a penny more from Michael. His not even being mentioned in Michael's will spoke volumes.

I'm sorry you and Megan will never get to see that concert, Paula. I'm sorry I'll never be able to see him, either. He was one who I always wanted to see, but between location and affordability, it was never possible.

He was absolutely electric onstage and that comes through in that footage as still being so just two days prior to his death.

anyone who's got £10 to spare could memorialise michael - in a very good cause.

...Will you remember your loved ones this July and light a candle for them around Ventnor Harbour?...

That was the music video for Black or White. That portion is after the song ends but the video continues. They don't play that portion on tv anymore because of the behavior of Michael in the video. Breaking windows and grabbing himself.

PEPSI Commercial tapes released.

The lyrics and Michael's voice are so poignant, even wrenching, in these, knowing the back story of it, if you care about the connections some people have with animals and the comfort they're able to find there. To think that this song was written [lyrics and music] and performed by him, someone who didn't know how to read music. He so much knew how to convey the depth of loneliness he felt. I wish I had been able to see perform even just once.

I so wish that Michael's father, Joseph Jackson, had not killed Ben and then been calloused, mocking, and cruel when he responded to Michael's grief.

I'm glad to hear that Grace Jones dedicated a song to Michael. I've always like Grace and her uniqueness.

Michael's videos, conceived and created by him, were brilliant. Watching him move and dance makes it easy to understand why Fred Astaire once called him and told him he's the best dancer in the world. Not only did he execute his moves to perfection, he also created them! Damn. I hope the overwhelmingly strong response to the news of his new tour showed him how much, despite everything, he was appreciated.

So many of Michael's songs relate to aloneness, loneliness, reaching out, making connections with others, and bettering the world... the need we have for each other.

G~d be with you forever and always, Michael. You did what you could to heal the world and make it a better place.

Michael's death has greatly saddened me. His music took up most of my childhood and I saw him on his History tour.

He was a lovely kind soul but a very lonely one. Also a very intelligent man, look up his speech to the Oxford Union or his speech about race in Harlem. You know he gave so much money to charity that he is in the Guiness Book of Records for it. Not that he did it for that reason, he often gave money without his name attached to it. I always thought he was innocent with the trials, down to gut instinct - even though people would look at me like I was completely mad. I guess I felt that way as his birthday was the day before mine, also a Virgo. We only care, I could not ever imagine him being evil. He cared too much when it came to some people he encountered that had other motives.

The people that accused him were all after money. Tom Sneddon of the Police was after him(check the lyrics to MJ's D.S song and the lyrics to 'Money') The book by Aphrodite Jones is an interesting read whether you are a fan or not. Its about the media and his trial, she started off as a reporter thinking/feeling certain he was guilty until she looked into the facts.

I hope the truth comes out about his death as a lot of it does not add up, involving the doctors and AEG. I really don't want to give AEG any more money again now. The cheek Randy Phillips had to offer the MJ fans tickets instead of refunds. I said people should get the refund and give some of it to charity, thats what Michael would want not people paying lots of money for a ticket. Randy has even called Michael lazy since his death, the cheek of it - its obvious he was weak.

RIP Michael, I hope his 3 little children will be ok - bless them.

Hi Sebmelmoth ~

That was just semantics. She meant what be both know she meant... that being guilty of child molestation does not make a person "good" [with "evil" being the understood opposite of that].

I agree with all you've said, howthelightsgetin. My feelings about his innocence have also been down to the gut. I'm not surprized that the reporter reversed her position, once she got further into it.

And, yes, Michael holds the record in the Guiness Book of World Records for the greatest philanthropist, giving the greatest amount of money, of any pop star.

Aren't evil?! Stealing a child's innocence? Also like Lizzy said it was clearly obvious what I meant! Anyway read Aphrodite's book on the trial and then perhaps I would converse more with you on this subject. Now is not the time to speak about all that when the man was innocent and has now sadly died. The only reason for you to carry on the conversation would be if you like arguments. I don't.

Don't even get me started on Uri 'selling stories about my friend MJ makes me rich' Geller :lol: They were not even talking the last few years after Uri recommended that Michael did an interview with a certain Bashir... (check out You Tube take two on that doc of stuff Bashir cut out its interesting...) Rumour has it that Uri was paid for setting that up too, nice mate eh!
