Michael Jackson’s First Moonwalk

Thirty years ago this week, Michael Jackson stunned the world and catapulted himself into a realm of untouchable superstardom with his first televised performance of the moonwalk. He wasn’t the creator of the moonwalk (several artists had previously performed variations of it), but he sure made it his own.

At the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in March of 1983, Michael Jackson gives his first performance of the moonwalk during the bridge of "Billie Jean."

Can’t get enough of the King of Pop? The library has plenty of items to satisfy your appetite, including a new book by his longtime costume designer Michael Bush, The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson. A must-read for any MJ fan!
