Hey Toronto, I have not forgotten about you! We have seminars in place in Orlando, Paris, Stockholm… and then you! I am working on studio locations, etc., but the wheels are moving. I know it is still many weeks out, but we need to sell enough tickets to book travel, hotel, studio, etc. Please continue to tell your friends that this will be THE place to be for MJ fans, music fans and those curious about the recording industry on November 23rd. Here is a post I put on my Orlando page, but I thought you might enjoy it. Have a great weekend!
Hey Orlando, we are just 15 days away from “In The Studio With MJ” at Starke Lake Studios! This will likely be the last stop in the US before we pack the show up and head to Paris in October.
So let me tell you about this photo and note. Many of you have already seen the photo of Michael and I playing Jenga (I won), but the note is kind of cool. Michael was never known for his spelling, but he was amazingly honest. One evening during the Dangerous project he went up to the front desk at Record One, and our runner/resident comedian Rob Disner was out getting food or something. Michael needed a pen, just a simple 5-cent ink pen. So he takes one, but leaves Rob this note. How cool is that? Michael was at the top of his game, making a new album, prepping for the next tour, building Neverland, writing songs, etc., but he writes a note about taking a pen. Rob kept it and has it framed in his house, which I think is awesome.
More stories, music, video and “Family Friday Dinner” in Toronto on November 23. Will You Be There?
Wow… hello Toronto!!! So let me tell you a quick story. I started hearing from these two MJ fans by the names of Marge and Christina several weeks ago. They had heard about my seminars in Paris, New York, etc, and they said (I am not making this up), “Brad, Toronto has some of the best MJ fans on the planet, and we want to bring you up here to tell your stories, share your music, and bring us into the studio with you.” I explained that I will be in Paris and Stockholm in October, but November is possible. The next thing I know a date is set, and we started selling tickets this morning. These two women do not play around!
Before I say anything else, let me tell you how grateful I am to be able to come hang out with you and talk about an amazing period in my life. The fact that fan groups have embraced the idea of just hearing music and stories about my years with a very dear friend is humbling, and something I deeply enjoy doing. As to my new friends Marge and Christina, I commend you both for tackling this. It takes a lot of work and coordination to pull off, and I am proud of the great job you have done this early on. Two thumbs up!
Now, here’s the deal. I will bring you my A-game in November, and I can’t wait to meet each of you that make it to my seminar. I will take you on a journey through Michael’s music, humor and working style that I think you will really enjoy. If you want tabloid non-sense, this is not the place for you. Michael’s safe-place was the studio, it will be a garbage-free setting, I can assure you.
I won’t pressure you to buy tickets just yet, I have a feeling Marge and Christina are handling that just fine. But I will say that we will have minimums to meet at some point, and if we fall short of those numbers your ticket purchase will be fully refunded. I don’t see that as a problem, but I want to make it clear this is a risk-free purchase. I’m a real guy, doing real seminars, we just need to make sure the audience is in place before I book plane tickets and rent studios. Make sense?
Enjoy your weekend, and thank you to my coordinators M and C, and to my early ticket purchasers! This is going to a really fun event.

We require 50 people to make this happen so please purchase your tickets as soon as possible. You can buy them through Brad’s site here. There are two selections: General Admission from 12:00 pm to 5 pm for US $179.00 where you can “Enjoy the music, video, photos and stories as Brad shares from his many years of working with Michael in the studio and at Neverland”. VIP Extended Admission and Dinner from 12:00pm to 7pm for US $249.00. “Family Friday” dinner will be served and shared as a group and more music and stories will be shared.
The Studio will be announced very shortly since Brad is scouting around Toronto for the best possible studio venue he can find.
NOTE: Space is limited so purchase your tickets as soon as possible so you won’t be disappointed. So far this is his only visit to Canada.
