Michael Jackson's Worn Fedora - Budapest 1996
Take home this black fedora worn by late American legend Michael Jackson for a concert in Budapest, the second stop on his 1996 HIStory World Tour.
On September 10, 1996 the Budapest Népstadion hosted 50,000 people to celebrate the King of Pop. The HIStory World Tour was the singer-songwriter's third and final solo world tour, spanning 1996 and 1997, to promote his ninth studio album 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future - Book I' and, on the second leg, his remix album 'Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix'.
The tour kicked off on September 7, 1996 at Letná Park in Prague, Czech Republic, and drew to a close in Durban, South Africa, on October 15, 1997. In total Jackson performed 82 concerts in 35 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania and North America. The HIStory World Tour racked up over 4.5 million admissions and grossed over $ 165 million, becoming the most successful tour of Jackson's career and the most successful in music history at that time.
Michael Jackson threw this very Fedora into the crowd after performing the song 'Billie Jean'.
The hat has been personalized on the inside with the name 'Michael Jackson' in gold writing. The number '8' has also been drawn on the inside of the hat.
