MJ in Tokyo

Michael launched the BAD tour in Japan at Korakunen Stadium in Tokyo on September 12, 1987 to a sold-out crowd of 38,000. One of the fans who attended, an 18-year old named Ikuko Yamamoto, told a reporter “Even if I don’t understand the lyrics, his melodies go straight to my heart. He’s magic.” The headline of that New York Times story? “Michael conquers Tokyo.”
