"It was only when I broke all ties After the stillness of the shrieking cries In the depths of those heaving sighs The imagined sorrow of a thousand lies I suddenly stared in your fiery eyes All at once I found my goal The elusive shadow was my soul."
June 27th, 1999 - Earth song gone wrong.
Towards the end of Michael’s performance of “Earth song”, technical difficulties surfaced. As he continued his performance on top of the bridge, the middle part of the bridge collapsed, sending him 27 feet into the air; then crashing down full speed into a hatch opening in front of the stage. When the bridge hit ground, Michael was obviously shocked, yet it didn’t deter him from continuing on with the show. He got back up to his feet, jumping back on stage to finish the performance as if nothing happened. But after the concert came to an end, Michael passed out back stage, having to be sent to the hospital immediately. He suffered from chest pains, as well severe back injuries that carried out into his future.
What amazes me is that though he was in such pain, he carried on with the performance. I heard somewhere that in the back of his mind he heard his father’s voice telling him to get up and keep on going, it striking fear into him, and that kept him from stopping. You can see it in his face he’s in pain, but he doesn’t let it ruin the show. Such an amazing talent, and a strong strong man.
This man is just overwhelmingly strong mentally and physically.Even in obvious great pain he put himself last and everyone else first.And people dare to call him wacko.Those FUCKS need to read this and the many more inspirational stories of Michael.What a man.Im so proud to love him.THE KING OF EVERYTHING!!!
Other artists can learn from this. Instead when they pass out on stage or throw up they run like a baby.
if this had been one of today’s artists they would have stopped the show, and probably the next 3 days after that then it would make headlines. If they have a cold, they cancel three or four shows. Michael could have made a huge deal, fired everyone he thought responsible, called a team of doctors, cancelled his shows for the next few weeks, taken time off- whatever. He could have done that, but he didn’t.
