Some Interesting Facts
The "Dangerous" tour is the biggest tour any performer had done, breaking his own record from his "Bad" tour [Michael will later break this record with the "HIStory" tour].

This multi-million dollar production was to travel into difficult and often technically challenged countries. On average, it would take three days to erect the stage. 20 truckloads of equipment were flown to each date and assembled.

A groundbreaker of tours, The Dangerous Tour was a signal to the music industry that Asia
was fast becoming a lucrative market for record sales. Jackson, the first major superstar
to tour the area, was seen as a test case.

Michael donated all the proceeds from the "Dangerous" World Tour to his "Heal The World" Foundation and to other charities.

Michael sold the film rights to his "Dangerous" concert in Bucharest [Rumania] to HBO for $20 million for the rights to air the show! The deal is the highest ever paid for a live concert. The special received the highest TV ratings in the history of HBO [21.4 % rating, 34% share]. Michael was honoured with a Cable Ace Award. The Bucharest concert [performed on October 01, 1992] was broadcast live on radio and shown on TV in 61 countries. Direcor Andy Morahan, who directed "Give In To Me" used more than 14 camera operators to tape the concert.

During the "Dangerous" tour, Michael performed "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" live on stage with duet partner Siedah Garrett.

On Dec. 30, 1992 during the "Dangerous" show at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, Slash made a special guest appearance for "Black Or White". He also joined Michael on stage for the next concert, Dec. 31, 1992 at this Special New Year's Eve Countdown Concert in Tokyo. Michael wished all his fans a Happy New Year from his changing room.

At every "Dangerous" tour stop, during "She's Out Of My Life", one lucky girl was allowed to dance with Michael on stage.

Especially the beginning of the show, the so-called "toaster", where Michael is catapulted on stage and the end of the show, where "he" jet-packs out of the stadium, hit headlines all around the world.
