Michael Jackson's Bad Tour

Avant helped to promote Michael Jackson's first solo tour, for the LP Bad, in 1987. As Michael Jackson was one of the biggest selling pop music artists in history, his tour added four new entries in the Guinness Book of World Records. It was the largest grossing tour in history, the tour with the largest attended audience and the most successful concert series.
