Hardly, it's hard to market a concert that provoked and sadly still does provoke so much negativity, even more so considering the state of Fred's voice.
If you work hard enough at trading you can aquire these shows, apparently, that's the only way us mere mortals will ever hear or see these types of recordings.

Unless Brian has a bad week on Wall St, and hit's the meth, and that is not going to happen anytime soon is it?

Yeah, do you have Dublin 1979? And why was the previous night at Cork cancelled?
 I seem to remember it was a bad storm, but that was a long time ago.

Oh Yeah, where did you get a soundboard of sun city, and which night is it? Sounds like the First.

Maybe if you release the whole thing, that might inspire them to release it officially, I'm sure the thought of it being sold for profit would piss them off if the $$$ are not going their way. :-)

Keeping it to yourself is allowing them complete control.

Live Magic has never sounded so bad.

Hello Luke

Sometimes in life its hard to no what to do when you have a something
that you know everybody would love to here  being a musician
(Guitarist/Singer),I try to respect the feelings of the band and i
myself would maybe not like gigs of myself to be put online without my
consent , and i really want to share this experiance and hope that if
enough people vote to say yes please release it that would be
Fantastic,its so nice to here Raw Recordings that have not been edited
etc as this truley reflects the awesome power of any top live band .
I personaly love mistakes & the odd swearword if so be, as that is how i remembered the Gig.


 Wow what can i say i posted the tunes for you here at Queenzone because i enjoy a debate , and was hoping
that talking about this concert would encourage us all to reflect on it.
Not everyone posts things which are not what they seem and i myself have not or would never mislead anyone
for the fortunate few who have listened to this concert will no straight away what i have posted is what i have stated
I was there and this recording has come straight from the horses mouth (so to speak)

As for the Live Magic comment i think you should maybe listen to it again
Many Thanks
Anthony.

Ps  has anyone else ever listened to any of the Sun City Gigs apart from what i have posted for you ?[img=/images/smiley/msn/regular_smile.gif][/img]

Why Degrade the snippets???   if it is the real deal, then I am sure that the small extracts will not piss anyone off!!!  I just think it's great when a newbie has a real gem in their hands ;-)


Joyful the sound

Hello  A Word in Your Ear

Having never been involved in any form of music sharing or Forums i am just treading lightly so to speak ,having
this for so long not being able to share without the strong arm of the law stomping down has allways worried me.
i could have sold this hundreds of times easily over the 24+ year period even before File sharing became popular but chose not to .
I only degraded the sound so i know it was my bad mix.it was only posted to
give you guys a rough idear of what the basic songs where like and not intended out of spite,and hope some
comments would come to lite and any more information about these concerts.
any suggestions what anyone else would have done in my position .

Many Thanks
Anthony

Thanks for sharing the snippet. It sure does sound like a SBD.

Anyway, why don't you share a snippet in which Freddie makes a reference to Sun City? I'm sure he must have greeted the audience in some original kind of way. That makes it 100% the real deal.

Hello Rick

Yes indeed on more than one ocasion,I myself personally would never Post certain names mentioned in the concerts , purely because i beleive that is not in anyones interest at the present..
 Are you all aware that Queen had a TV advert  running for many years in S Africa advertising a certain
entertainment complex using one of there most Greatest songs,so there is huge potential in advertising for a certain
Hotel chain,and i am not willing to boost the complexes image as certain people do not agree to  the" HUGE concerts and TV payments" ,while 80% of Native people and 10% of the rest  were in Poverty,
Just a qoute from local newspaper at the time, not mine..

Many Thanks
Hope That helps
