The Jacksons' last tour, the "Victory" tour, included 55 concerts with an attendance of over 2 million people.

Some Interesting Facts
The Jacksons' "Victory" tour became the then-biggest tour any group had ever done!

The "Victory" tour reunited Jermaine with his brothers on stage for the first time in over 8 years.

It took 4 months to construct the "Victory" concert stage.

On July 4, 1984 Eddie Van Halen joined The Jacksons on stage for a "Beat It" guest appearance playing electric guitar.

While in New York, The Jacksons stayed at the "New York Panta Hotel" which displayed six 40 foot busts of The Jacksons - entitled "Pepsi Presents The Jacksons".

During the "Victory" shows in Detroit, Michigan, Michael shouted "We love you Motown" to the crowd in "Motor City" where he recorded his first number one hit 15 years earlier.

At the last show of the tour, performed at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Michael announced his split from The Jacksons during "Shake Your Body [Down To The Ground]".

The "Victory" tour reportedly grossed $75 million USD and set a new record for the then-largest grossing tour.

Michael donated all his proceeds ($5 million) ? to charities (T.J. Martell Foundation for Cancer Research, The United Negro College Fund, and the Ronald McDonald Camp for Good Times).
