The Jacksons - Victory Tour Program (Version #3) Book CoverThe Jacksons - Victory Tour Program (Version #3) [Book]

I hope I can please you fans with presenting you this famous item 'Victory Tour Program book' of The Jacksons. The book is published by Stadium Management Corporation.

The younger and old fans, this section is pointed to you! The history is easy: July 1984, the beginning of the 'Victory Tour', The Jacksons decide to sell a beautiful program with pictures to the fans.

But there exist 3 editions, they differ from pictures (changing from place), the first edition was been sold until September 1984, the second edition is a bit more rare than the first edition and was been sold from the concert of September 17th in the Olympic Stadium of Montreal.

This 'Victory Tour' book sold at the USA concerts and that was in December 1984, it was the third and final variation that was used for the final 1984 concerts.


There are several differences in this program from the second version:

Page 1: "The Multi-Platinum Album" text added to the Victory LP ad

Page 2: Purple fonts with torch logo added in middle

Page 3: Text font colors are different (and Randy's signature is purple instead of blue). Dedication is added "In memory of Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Jack Richardson...in our hearts, you'll never be forgotten..."

Pages 6 Onward: Text fonts on the inner pages (including Bio pages) are all bigger (compare "Michael" on the top of page 6 and on the other bios)

Page 7: (Jermaine's first page) there is an inset photo added from his video "When The Rain Begins To Fall" (on the bottom)

Page 8: (Jermaine's second page) the photo is completely different

Page 11: (Tito's first page) There is an inset of Tito on a motorcycle added to the bottom

Page 13: (Marlon's first page) there is an inset photo added of Marlon as sad clown

Page 14: (Marlon's second page) the photo is completely different

Page 23: Four of the five photos are completely different, and now there are two pictures of MJ taken backstage during the Tour.

Page 26: Chris Bliss "The Juggler" inset photo is added on bottom. The Crew photo is completely different. The photo of David Williams (Guitar player) is different.

Page 27: Stadium Management Corp page is completely different, with more photos and now all in color

Page 28: Katherine's image is different on the Tour Credits page (now with a camera in front of her face) and the order of the photos have been changed to Joe, Katherine, and Don King (Don King was originally first in Version #2). And the text under "Tour Credits" (now with a pink font) is completely different.
