Today In Michael Jackson History (July 8th)

1988 – Michael performs to a capacity audience of 72,000 at a sell-out concert at the Olympic Stadium in Munich, Germany.


1984 – Rev. Jesse Jackson, in Kansas City to address the African Methodist Episcopal Church Convention, visits The Jacksons at their hotel and attends the concert at the Arrowhead Stadium.


2009 – Dance sensation group, BouncE, organized this flash mob (new term for me, too) tribute putting together very impromptu choreography to Jacksons Beat It and getting the crowd at Sergelstorg and Central Station to pull it off.

    In light of all the troubles in the world the flash mob video gave me a thought.
    Dance not protest, understanding not ignorance, love not hate…
