Less than a week remains until the unveiling of Bad 25, an expanded edition of Michael Jackson’s 1987 classic.

One of the most anticipated parts of this set is the official release of Michael’s 1988 Wembley Arena show, which he performed in the presence of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. The show is also being released on CD-the first ever commercial release of an adult MJ solo concert. Lots of qualifiers there, but oh well.

There’s no disputing that a Michael Jackson concert in 1988 was an electrifying experience, and this clip of “Human Nature” solidifies that statement. Moving like a cat, pulling out all the dramatic stops, and singing his ass off, this video is mesmerizing even if you’ve seen a million other performances of “Human Nature” via YouTube or This Is It.

Damn, I miss that man.
