The Victory Tour was a concert tour of the United States and Canada by Michael Jackson and the Jackson family between July and December 1984. It was the only tour with all six Jackson brothers (even though Jackie was injured for most of the tour). The group performed 55 concerts to an audience of approximately 2 million. Most came to see Michael, whose album Thriller was dominating the popular music world at the time. Many consider it to be his Thriller tour, with most of the songs on the set list coming off of his Off the Wall album and from the Thriller album. The tour reportedly grossed approximately $75 million (US$176,665,599 in 2017 dollars) and set a new record for the highest grossing tour. It showcased Michael’s single decorated glove, black sequined jacket and moonwalk.
Despite its focus on Michael, it was named after the newly released Jacksons‘ album Victory although none of the album’s songs were performed. Marlon confirmed this was because Michael refused to rehearse or perform them; in fact, he had only reluctantly joined his brothers, who needed the income while he himself did not. On the tour, tensions between Michael and his brothers increased to the point that he announced at the final show that it would be the last time they would perform together, ending plans for a European leg.
The Jacksons did make money from the tour, along with promoter Don King. Michael donated his share to several charities as he had promised before it, but the rancour between him and his brothers had a deep and lasting effect on the Jacksons as a family, alienating him from them for most of his later life and it effectively ended the Jacksons as a performing group. They made one more album (2300 Jackson Street which was released in 1989) but aside from the concert celebrating Michael’s 30 years as a solo artist in 2001, they never toured again during Michael’s lifetime.
The tour was also a financial disaster for promoter Chuck Sullivan, who along with his father Billy was eventually forced to sell the New England Patriots football team they owned, along with Foxboro Stadium, the team’s home field, as a result of the losses he incurred.
