When you think of Michael Jackson, you can immediately picture his legendary ‘Moonwalk’. However, not many know its origin – At Motown Records’ 25th Anniversary Concert on this very day – 28 years ago!
A lot of amazing things happened at Motown Record’s 25th Anniversary concert at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. Diana Ross reunited with The Supremes, and Marvin Gaye performed on national TV for the final time.
Much of that has been forgotten because it was also the night when Michael Jackson stepped outside of The Jackson 5 and performed “Billie Jean,” debuting the moonwalk to the shrieking crowd. It remains the most famous performance of Jackson’s long career.
