 Michael Jackson Marbella 88

Day 1908
Melbourne, Australia
28th June 2009
The king of pop has died; I remember going to see Michael Jackson in his first concert in Spain which was more than 20 years ago in Marbella, Spain. I was there with more than 28,000 fans in the town's municipal stadium in August 1988 as part of his 'Bad World Tour', I was only 14 at the time and I remember doing a lot of queuing around the stadium in the heat and my brother having a telephone directory to stand on , he did not come on until the evening but when he did he did not disappoint, he used a crane to fly over the crowd during the song 'Beat it'. He later took over the local shopping centre in the evening to go shopping for him and his entourage which consisted of around 150 people.

I still remember it as one of the best concerts I have been to and his music will live on forever. Currently his albums occupy 9 out 10 of the most downloaded albums on iTunes, if only more people had purchased his music before then maybe he would not have had been forced to tour.

Michael Jackson RIP
