The recording of Thriller started in 1982 contrary to popular opinion



BUT

I agree MJ was not the incomparable megastar like we know him as today in the 70's although still popular.

He was selling out stadiums before that with his brothers during the Triumph and Destiny tours.

People forget that the Jackson 5 were international stars.

When was the Val Halen Tour and how much did it gross?

How many stadiums did they play?


You can't just make these claims with no facts to back them lol

Popular opinion? It is a fact that it was recorded in 1982, the same year that Van Halen's album Diver Down was number 3 on the Billboard pop charts.

You implied that it was recorded during a period he was not the mega star. So I assumed you were referring to the 70's

They were in the Guinness book of records for the highest paid act of that year, they tend to check their sources pretty tightly.
Which was then broken by Jackson the following year ironically.

If it says Jackson one year and Van Halen the year before I don't see why I shouldn't believe it.

I am in no way implying Van Halen were not big but you have to look at the year of the releases and put them in perspective.

If MJ released the Thriller album in November of 1982, of course Van Halen would have had the biggest tour act that year because MJ did not go on tour and had just released his album.

By the time the Thriller album was released and took off we all can agree MJ was WAYYYY bigger than them. MJ did not tour for Thriller till 84 which broke all kinds of records and was more successful than any of Van Halens tours.
