Event Description

The Multi-Day Event in Cologne, Germany

Easily our most ambitious event to date, we are offering a four-day event for Michael Jackson fans like nothing else.  Brad Sundberg has designed a unique event with four very different "seminars" to choose from, along with his good friends Brad Buxer and Michael Prince.  Join us for one, two, three or all four days if you like.  Purchase your ticket package now, then you will be contacted (in the order tickets are purchased) to allow you to choose the day(s) you want to be a part of.  Seating is limited for all events, so don't delay in making your purchase and selections.  

Day One (Thursday, June 25)
"In The Studio: Unplugged and Off-Script"

A day in the studio with Brad Sundberg, taking you on the new "surround-sound" multi-layered audio and video tour of Neverland. I have been working hard on this one-of-a-kind virtual tour of the ranch that was such a part of my life for so many years. Also, we will have a "Shoes Optional" session, where I will dig into my bag of songs and videos that don't usually make it to my normal seminar.  We did "Shoes Optional" last year in Amsterdam, and it was a lot of fun.  Very casual and relaxed - wear your favorite socks to show off!  Want to hear a song twice? This is a good event to attend. Lastly, we will dig into the HIStory album and Skype in one or two of my friends to share their stories about the incredible album HIStory. Likely there will also be some surprises.

Day Two (Friday, June 26)
"Bradx2" with Michael Prince - "The Early Years"

Brad Buxer and Michael Prince will join us for a full day of stories and music about Brad's early years, from when he left Stevie Wonder to join the Michael Jackson team. We will cover the Dangerous album, the Dangerous tour, the HISTory album and the HIStory tour.  Brad Buxer is an amazing storyteller and a brilliant musician.  His years with Michael had a profound impact on his life, and you will learn so much about music, songwriting and Michael from this event.  

Day Three (Saturday, June 27)
"Bradx2" with Michael Prince - "The Later Years"

We will resume our discussion with Brad and Michael, and dig into projects like Blood On The Dance Floor, Invincible, Live At The Apollo, MJ & Friends, plus private concerts. We will discuss recording on the road, and at Neverland. And of course we will talk about This Is It.  Michael Prince will be joining us for both "Bradx2" days, but you might remember him from "This Is It".  Michael Prince was deeply trusted by Michael, and his memories are priceless.  

Day Four (Sunday, June 28)
"In The Studio With MJ" v2.0

Four studio albums.  Countless sessions.  Video mixes.  Dance mixes.  Three world tours.  A ranch called "Neverland."  This was Brad Sundberg's life and career for nearly 18 years, working closely with the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.  This is your chance to hear of the music, the stories behind the music, and what it was like to be a part of Michael's team.  This is a one-of-a-kind music, photo and video-filled seminar. 

Brad had the opportunity to work closely in the studio and at Neverland Valley Ranch with Michael Jackson.  He was Michael's technical director and one of the engineers on four studio albums including "Bad", "Dangerous", "HIStory", and "Blood On The Dancefloor."  (Michael even gave Brad the nickname "Really, Really Brad".)  These mammoth projects (including production, tour-prep and countless remixes) took upwards of 16 months each.  You will see and hear what it was like to be in the studio with Michael and the team of engineers and producers who created these songs, through a carefully crafted timeline of music, video and behind-the-scenes info.  From "Captain Eo" to "Man In The Mirror" to "Smile", Brad was there, and you will hear about the production process.

Brad is generous with his insights and knowledge, and there will be time for questions.  If you are a fan of Michael's music, or are curious about how those albums were recorded and the staggering amount of tapes, tracks and time invested, you will want to attend "In The Studio With MJ."

All of this will take place at the beautiful Dierks Studios outside of Cologne, Germany - where Michael recorded "Blood On The Dance Floor"!

Start times for each event will be 12:00 noon, with durations of about 7 hours per day.

Seating will be limited for all events, and tickets are non-refundable, so choose carefully and plan accordingly. This is a very unique opportunity to meet, listen to and ask questions with three of the guys whose work with Michael span decades - in the studio, at the ranch, and on tour.
