GONE but not forgotten, moonwalking a la Michael Jackson comes to the Alban Arena next Thursday, March 11.

Who's Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band remembers the king of pop by taking audiences on a musical expedition spanning three decades of chart success.

Who's Bad has crafted an intricate performance complete with synchronised dance routines, a blaring horn section and down-deep rhythms. The aim is to try and recapture the essence, the passion, the energy and the musicality of Michael Jackson's talent.
