stunning show
17 February 2002 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

In thought this show was so brilliant, the performers were really great and I still enjoy watching the performers, but the performance that I enjoyed most would have to be Michael Jackson's Billie Jean. I loved the moonwalk and his dancing was superb as usual.
