A couple of questions about that...

1. Does anyone know if there's more than the four tracks that were on "Queen On Fire"? I can't believe a film crew was at the show just to film the last four songs.
2. Is it shot on film or video? It looks like film to me, but it could be video. However, if it is film it might be good enough for HD release.

I saw a live version of The Hero on Youtube once that I *think* was from Vienna. It was professional quality, although maybe only 2-3 cameras. Someone said it was from a DoRo documentary. It was removed from Youtube very quickly.

There's never been a footage of The Hero from Vienna. Only the last four songs have been available all the time and nothing else.

Maybe you mean Frankfurt on April 28? Although it's a single camera angle.

Could be. The angle was mainly -- maybe entirely -- from the back of the hall.

The footage of The Hero is definitely from Frankfurt.  The Frankfurt footage is Flash/Hero/TYMD (the first few songs of the show), and the Vienna footage is Dust/WWRY/WATC/GSTQ.  It wasn't uncommon for only a few songs to be filmed when the footage was intended to be for a TV report.  All they'd need is a little bit of footage for the final product.

Btw, can anybody share the Frankfurt's videos? I've been searching for those for years.

Whats interesting is that the footage from "Rare live" of TYMD is earlier in the song, which means the doro guys have more footage than used in the german tv report.

Good observation, Eddy.  Too bad they didn't include this uncut footage in the Milton Keynes DVD extras.... but at least we got Vienna.
