The Michael Jackson Estate is taking Leaving Neverland matters into their own hands. Extending its efforts outside out of the courtroom, the group combatted the two-night HBO premiere with concert footage of the King of Pop.
While the first half of the documentary debuted on the evening of March 3, the estate announced the release of two concert films via Twitter. The 1992 concert film Live in Bucharest (The Dangerous Tour) began streaming that same night, while the 1988 concert film Live at Wembley was uploaded during the premiere of the documentary’s second half the following evening.
The sudden release of the concert films follows the Jackson estate’s $100 million USD lawsuit against HBO. According to MJ’s legal team, the network had breached a 27-year-old contract upon the documentary’s premiere.
