I will say one thing. Dangerous could have really used an MJ tour in the USA. We got the live HBO special which was later released as "Live in Bucharest"...but it would have been so cool had the Dangerous Tour came to the USA. After Bad he never toured the USA again...sad.

Exactly, I don't understand why this happened.

214, I have no proof, but I think its because MJ was selling out Stadiums everywhere else whereas here in the USA he could "only" sell out Arenas. MJ always had to be "bigger and better." He always wanted to outdo himself. I wonder if after the Massive stadium tour of "Victory", dd he see it as a step backwards to do the mainly arena tour of 'Bad" in the USA?Anyway taking his tours around the world meant that people as far away as South Africa and India got to see him live...which was great. And is one of the reasons he is so huge globally.

I also think there was talk of doing an American leg of the Dangerous tour after the Oprah interview...but the allegations and resulting problems derailed that.
