Ok, so forgive me if this seems like a silly question, but were most all of Queen's concerts recorded by Queen Productions? I know bootlegs exist for tons of concerts, but are they locked in the vaults and only a few will see the light of day?

Greg Brooks, the official Queen Archivist did post here some time ago a list of all live recordings existing in the archives. There were surprisingly few items on the list

We likely already have.  The new footage seen at the Stormtroopers exhibition may have been from these tapes.

I though it was 4000, rather than 40,000.

You're probably right Ginja. I am getting on a bit and my memory is dreadful.
Hey, you weren't at Convention were you?

Rainbow for sure. i bet that they are planning the furure release.

But in the 4000 tapes... maybe... Knebworth?

At the end of the magic tour:

Brian: Our last concert of the tour, what a great night, can we see our concert, please?
Greg: No Brian, unfortunately the cams don't record nothing, someone forgot to push the button, the transmission is lost in the space, you know...
Brian: ah, well... then we must throw the tapes
Greg: Ok, i'll do it later (MWA HA HA HA HA)

Nah, but I did get to speak to Greg at the exhibition. For what it's worth he was a really nice guy, so I don't understand some of the abuse he gets on here.

He said a couple of lorries were needed to transport all the tapes.
