I'm sorry to ask this again but I was wondering fi anyone out there on Earth knew what concerts were professionally filmed with Queen + Paul Rodgers? I know of:

1. U.K. Songwriters Hall Of Fame
2. the 46664 concert at the beginning of the reunion tour
3. "Live At Sheffield!"
4. PART of the Hyde Park concert...right?
5. "Super Live!" in Japan

...and that's it...right? Nothing from the U.S. and apparently nothing from Budapest either from what we understand at this point...right? I thought it was understood that the film crew just did some behind the scenes stuff for a documentary but did not actually film the concert...right?

That's certainly the impression Brian was under when he wrote about it on his Soapbox.
So I'm pretty sure there wasn't much filmed... though that Worchester video that guy shot with his HD camera is surely the next best thing.

(Did I get the name right there?)

I thought Budapest was filmed entirely (I'm sure Miklos could confirm that) an also Hyde Park '05 I believe is complete in the archives.

Lets not forget Hyde Park '08 just a few days ago, and if you include Songwriters Hall of Fame 2004 then you may as well add Al Murrays Happy Hour to the list.

Amatuer filmings would be a nice discussion, though that would be opening a can of worms :-)

Well to be exact I was pertaining to the live performances related to the "Return Of The Champions" project. To be exact...everything to do with that reunion tour. I kind of consider the latest 46664 concert at Hyde Park to be the start of "The Cosmos Rocks World Tour 2008-2009 Live!" project.

So I would say that there is quite sufficient confusion on whether or not the Queen concert at Hyde Park 2005 was filmed in its entirety and whether or not Budapest 2005 was filmed at all. Some say yes...others say no.

Hah! Thankyou. It's been a couple of years since I downloaded that thing and I honestly have a bad head for place-names, especially when they're in another country.

No,

Part of Arnhem is pro shot as well.
Also, at some gigs national TV stations shot the first few songs. Some of this footage was used for TV news items.

What are you talking about?

US dates had screens.
Arnhem and Cologne had screens.

Besides, it's very unusual that the footage you see on the screens at concerts is recorded (by the band/ crew)
Roadies have nothing to do with that part of the concert anyway.

ähm... no us-dates ?
what about
2006-05-25 - USA, LasVegas [VH1 Rock Honours] ?

nice one.


furthermore i remember seeing some tv-reports on brixton and leipzig 2005 (each one or two songs). although they aren't proper shoots but reports on the venues, one COULD call them pro-shoots...
anyway...

There were a lot of cameras in Brixton. I am pretty sure that the first songs (up to I Want To Break Free) were recorded by one or another.

Lots of shows were indeed (partially) filmed by tv-crews of the countries where the performance was. (Brixton, Prague, Antwerpen, Rotterdam etc) Snippets were used for reports.

Thing with these kind of recordings is though, that the snippets used in the actual broadcast are in many cases all that survives. In general tv-stations discart the rest of their rough material. (And our hopes are thus focussed on members of the crew or reporters making personal copies before the tapes are used again...)

QPL themselves filmed, besides Tokyo and Sheffield, at least parts of Budapest, Hyde Park and Arnhem.

First ~25 minutes of Prague were recorded professionally too. Part of it was even broadcasted.
