This fall, TV fans will be disappointed that some of their favorite shows have been cancelled. But fans of Who’s Bad have nothing to worry about, as the Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band is thrilled to celebrate the ninth season of their world-class homage to the King of Pop with their fall tour.

Who’s Bad’s critically acclaimed show, which draws from four decades’ worth of Michael’s music catalog, has been choreographed to a tee -- but don’t expect any reruns. Each show is unique, and the fans know it, as they consistently confess on social media to seeing the band play four, five, even up to eight times.

Who’s Bad have consistently outsold every other MJ tribute act -- worldwide. And it’s no wonder why, considering that their live show is a stunning visual experience replete with precisely choreographed moves, flashing lights, and vivid, authentic costumes. Real fans know that the vibrant red-and-black color scheme just doesn’t translate as well on tape.

Donning the leather jackets and white gloves are the world’s two most talented Michael Jackson performers, Taalib York and Joseph Bell, who have no need for stand-ins or stunt doubles. And neither do the backing musicians and dancers, who have between them decades of experience performing on stages across the country, including Broadway.

Even with more than 800 shows under their belts, Who’s Bad show no sign of slowing down. But fans of the Ultimate MJ Tribute are no couch potatoes, either, as they not only watch the live show but dance and sing along in rapture. Who’s Bad’s show is truly about the magic that can only be achieved in a live performance. After all, when was the last time a band on TV invited viewers onstage to dance with them?

Like all the best entertainment out there, Who’s Bad continue to increase their wide exposure, both in the U.S. and abroad. This fall, in addition to their (date) show in (city), the band will rock with U.S. crowds in the Midwest and on both coasts. The fall line-up is a diverse group of tour dates befitting a versatile group of musicians who simply love to perform.

While the band have appeared in several interviews for the small screen, they much prefer the energy and intimacy of the (venue) stage, which is the perfect setting for establishing the close connection they try to achieve with every fan. In fact, Michael’s former manager, Frank DiLeo, saw the show and proclaimed that “Michael would have been proud.”

This fall, Who’s Bad challenges Americans to put down the remote and come see how the band have earned their title as the Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute.
