The Michael Jackson HIStory World Tour began in September of 1996, and it continued until October of 1997. This was Michael’s third world tour, and ultimately his last, as the “This Is It Tour” never had a chance to start. The HIStory World Tour consisted of 82 concerts, and nearly 4.5 million people attended.
The tour began in Brunei and was finally finished when the King of Pop did his final concert in Durban, South Africa. During the HIStory World Tour, he touched 44 countries in Europe, 19 in Asia, 11 in Australasia, 6 in Africa, and finally 2 in North America.
This tour ended up beating his prior world tour, which was the “Bad World Tour”, in terms of attendance and dollars. Had Michael not passed away so soon, we would have had his final and last world tour, the “This Is It Tour“.
