"In July 1984 Michael Jackson and his brothers, The Jacksons, launched a massive tour. Labeled ‘Victory’ it was a spectacular effort that brought Michael Jackson even higher in the public eye as a performer. The opening of the show reminded me of a crucial visual in the film, ‘The Right Stuff’ as the band stood on an elevating riser pushing up through smoke effects then being greeted by a mesmerized audience of 47,000 people."
