On This Day in MJ Music History January 3, 4, 6, 1997

On this day – 3rd, 4th & 6th January 1997
Michael performs to record crowds in Honolulu, Hawaii – his first U.S. tour stop since 1989. The two concerts held on January 3rd and 4th at the 35,000-seat Aloha Stadium made history – no other musical act ever sold out the stadium, and Michael sold out 2 shows in less than 24 hours, a record time.
Hawaii promoter, Tom Moffatt said: “I’ve never seen anything like it, …there’s been nothing even close to this – the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Julio Iglesias, the Eagles…”
