Michael Jackson - Triumph Tour, 1981

*A former associate of Michael Jackson is reportedly shopping around a full-length concert movie featuring never-before-seen rehearsal footage from the Jacksons’ 1981 Triumph tour.

According to TMZ.com, Ron Newt claims the King of Pop gave him special behind-the-scenes footage from the concert series.

 

Following the success of “This Is It,” which featured footage from Jackson’s planned July 2009 concerts in London, Newt tells TMZ he’s put together a 64-minute feature film from his 1981 footage … which includes several candid moments involving MJ and his brothers.

Michael can also be seen dancing, singing and directing the stage production.

Newt says he’s already getting offers from several interested parties — with proposals reaching into seven figures.
