As the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary is set to air in Australia this week, Michael Jackson’s Estate is doing its very best to distract the King of Pop’s declining fans.
Around 20 minutes into the airing of Leaving Neverland in the US overnight, the official Michael Jackson Twitter account announced that the 1992 concert film Live in Bucharest (The Dangerous Tour) was now “available for a limited time” on YouTube.
Don’t miss the magic from the King of Pop himself! Immerse yourself in Michael Jackson. Live in Bucharest and Live at Wembley Stadium available for a limited time on Michael Jackson’s @youtube!

The Estate had hoped that while Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck were discussing claims that they were targeted and sexually abused by Michael Jackson during their childhood, most fans would be ‘immersing themselves in the magic’ of Jackson’s concert films.
Interestingly, the Live in Bucharest concert film has a run time of two hours and two minutes—the exact length of Leaving Neverland part one.
A second Jackson concert film, Live at Wembley Stadium, will be live on YouTube at the same time Leaving Neverland part two airs in the US.
