Michael Jackson concert chronology

The Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration was a 2001 New York City concert show by Michael Jackson. It took place on September 7, 2001 and September 10, 2001. In late November 2001, the CBS television network aired the concerts as a two-hour special in honor of Michael Jackson's thirtieth year as a solo entertainer (his first solo single, "Got to Be There", was recorded in 1971). The show was edited from footage of two separate concerts Michael had orchestrated in New York City's Madison Square Garden on September 7 and September 10 of 2001. The shows sold out in five hours. Ticket prices were pop's most expensive ever; the best seats cost $10,000 and included a dinner with Michael Jackson and a signed poster. The show was choreographed by Glenn Douglas Packard & Brian Thomas, who were nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography. The show was presented by David Gest, World Events LLC and Clear Channel Entertainment in conjunction with American Airlines, American Eagle and Jackson reportedly earned $7.5 million for each of the two concerts. The concert official Boxscore was $10,072,105 for both concerts.[1]

To some fans, Jackson appeared more disoriented in the first concert as he only did one short moonwalk and improvised the ending of the Billie Jean performance. To explain Jackson's disoriented appearance, David Gest claimed in his film Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon (2011) that Jackson was on drugs during the concerts. However, Jackson himself stated that he did not rehearse for the first concert. In Jermaine's book You Are Not Alone: Michael Through a Brother's Eyes, Jermaine Jackson stated that Michael was taking Demerol, a pain relieving medicine with psychotropic effects. The show attracted numerous celebrities such as Marc Anthony, Jill St. John, Reggie Miller, Ann Miller, Whitney Houston, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Naomi Campbell, Luther Vandross, Monica, Janet Leigh, Liza Minnelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Macaulay Culkin, Usher, Mýa, Natalie Cole, Lil' Romeo, Chris Tucker, Samuel L. Jackson, Destiny's Child, 98 Degrees, Jill Scott, Kenny Rogers, Gloria Estefan, Yoko Ono, Sam Harris, Angie Harmon, O-Town, Grant Hill, Robert Wagner Tamia& Aaron Carter.[2]

This would also become the final concert in which Michael would perform with his brothers onstage.

On the day after the September 10 concert, Michael was supposed to attend a meeting at the World Trade Center. He overslept that day and could not attend the meeting. However, that was the day of the September 11 attacks, as two hijacked planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Thankfully, he remained alive until his death eight years later, in 2009, due to cardiac arrest. His brother, Jermaine Jackson highlighted this event in his book, You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother's Eyes, published in 2011. [5] In response to the 9/11 attacks, Michael held a benefit concert one month after the tragedy called, United We Stand: What More Can I Give. The concerts were held in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Other featured artists that also performed in the benefit concert were the Backstreet Boys, Krystal Harris, Huey Lewis and the News, James Brown, Jennifer Lopez, Billy Gilman, O-Town, Usher, Christina Milian, Carole King, Al Green, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Bette Midler, CeCe Peniston, Aerosmith, America, P. Diddy, NSYNC, Destiny's Child, Rod Stewart, Goo Goo Dolls, Train, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, and Mary J. Blige. In addition, his sister, Janet Jackson performed with him.

This was also Randy Jackson's final concert with his brothers. After this, he contributed as the backup vocals for Michael's final song, This is It, along with his brothers Jackie, Tito, and Jermaine. He then retired.

It wasn't until June 20, 2012 that the brothers would perform again together, holding the Unity Tour, which was held in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. The tour lasted until July 27, 2013. This was the first tour held without Michael and Randy.
