Today In Michael Jackson History (January 4th)

1997 – Michael ended the first leg of his “HIStory” tour in Honolulu, Hawaii. The two concerts held on January 3 and 4 at the 35’000-seat Aloha Stadium made history – no other musical act ever sold out the stadium, and Michael sold out 2 shows in less than 24 hours, a record time. It’s his first U.S. tour stop since 1989. Hawaii promoter Tom Moffatt said: “I’ve never seen anything like it… there’s been nothing even close to this”

2005 – On behalf of his family and himself, Michael Jackson releases a statement on his website concerning the 9.1 Mw undersea megathrust earthquake and tsunami disaster which occurred on December 26, 2004, affecting Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Maldives and killing over 230,000 people from fourteen countries. “My family and I would like to send our prayers and heartfelt sympathy to the families, friends and loved ones of those who recently perished from the horrific earthquake and tsunami, which swept through Indonesia, Asia, India, Somalia and other countries”, Jackson declares. “Our love is also being sent to those who have miraculously survived this tragedy and to those who are so courageously on-site, helping to spearhead the relief efforts. We pray for your strength, your safety and the success of your life-saving missions of love. Words cannot adequately express the shock, horror and grief we’ve felt, while watching news reports which have captured the massive devastation and despair. It has been especially painful for me, as I have visited these areas many times and I remember the love, kindness and warmth of the people I met there”, he also declares. I would like to encourage all of my friends, and fans, to contribute to agencies and organizations assisting in these efforts. In times like these, we need each other… we must bond together in spirit and in service. God Bless. Sincerely, Michael Jackson”.
