'Michael Jackson & Friends' concerts

Michael, together with other artists from around the globe performed two charity benifit concerts in June of 1999. Together these concerts raised millions of dollars for three charities: The Red Cross, UNESCO, and The Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
Both concerts were televised, and the final concert was aired globally over the internet!

June 25, 1999 - Seoul, Korea

The Korean concert was played at the Chamsil Olympic Stadium, Seoul, Korea to an audience of 54,000 people.
Michael arrived at the stadium at 9:30 p.m., creating a lot of excitement in the audience as people noticed his bus entering the backstage area.
The concert was almost stopped by the incredible reaction of the crowd trying to catch a glimpse of the King of Entertainment.
Michael appeared on stage at 10:10pm in front of a full sold - out stadium to perform his greatest hits Medley, much like 1995 MTV Video Music Awards.
Michael said a few words at the closing of his "Earth Song" performance, asking for a reunification of Korea and promising
to be there when it should happen.
The concert ended after Michael's performance with fireworks and
a rain of petals on the audience.
In addition to Michael, there were approximately 30 other performances that took place during the 9 hour concert.

Performances were made by Michael Jackson, Status Quo, Slash, Justus Frantz, The Kelly Family, Sasha, Barenaked Ladies,
Philip Kirkorov, Alan Parsons, Ringo Starr, Zucchero, The Scorpions, All Saints, Boyzone, Particia Kaas, A. R. Rahman,
Luther Vandross, Helmut Lotti, Roberto Alagna, Angela Gheorghiu, Vanessa Mae, Gheorghiu & Alagna, Peter Maffay & Noa, U.Jurgens & M.Adorf, Andrea Bocelli and Spirit of the Dance.

June 27, 1999 - Munich, Germany

The concert in Munich was played at the Olympic Stadium and was modeled after the previous concert in Seoul, with many of the same performers.
Michael's set included a stage dubbed the "bridge of no return"
which was a symbol for refugee children.
During "Earth Song" children led each other across the bridge symbolizing the plight of refugees.
At the end of the song the bridge was supposed to collapse and a tank would take to the stage as it did in the HIStory World Tour production of "Earth Song".
Unfortunately, during the concert an accident has occured with the prop and Michael was slightly injured.
The bridge that Michael was standing on separated too soon, and
the middle section fell into a pit in the stage.
Michael climbed out of the hole and carried on with his performance of "Earth Song" and "You Are Not Alone" with no apparent injuries.
(Later Michael did go to the hospital and was reported to have suffered bruising, and minor burns).

Performances in the Munich concert were played by Michael Jackson, Patricia Kaas, Steven Seagal, Status Quo,
Spirit of the Dance, H.O.T , S.E.S, Luther Vandross, Vanessa Mae, Boys II Men, Slash, Andy Lau, The Scorpions, Philip Kirkorov, Coco Lee, and Blackstreet.
