Hello everybody:

I was looking at the 2nd video of  "We are the champions" and some behind the camera scenes, and started to wonder...

Does anybody knows if the show that Queen played for the fans that night is filmed? I know that there's a an audio of it, but it will be nice to see a video too, right?

Thanks everybody!!

Salutes.

We can't be so sure about that this wasn't filmed. It could be filmed and now it's gathering dust in the archives, but they're hiding it from us.

Or maybe an audience shot (8 mm) of the show exist and is in hands of the recorder... who knows?
Frankly i don`t belive a pro-shot of these show exists in the archive if Gary said that no footage of the gig exists, cause i think they revised the archive very well for their Documentary.
Don`t forget record footage in film (35 mm) or even in 16 mm was very expensive in these ages.

I'm not heavily into documentaries and, apart from TATDOOL on BBC last month, it's been years since I last bothered (so I often get forgetful about what I have seen and from which sources) - however, is there not some clips of the "Champions" shoot on one of the UK docs?  I'm sure I have seen footage of Freddie at this with the crowd singing along - was this just for the recording of the promo, or was it from the after-shoot gig?

That's strange, so they simply packed their cameras after they filmed all mimed performances ? Quite illogical, especially when you consider how much material did Bob Harris' crew film in 1977 for the documentary, which was never finished.

But it can be possible since they didn't film the end of the Hammersmith Odeon 75 show  :-(

is not so illogical when you consider the expensive cost of the tapes... but the Bob Harris documentary is a good point... maybe the gig is in the bob`s personal archive, Who knows?

Sorry! i think was my issue, i mean:
If aparently they don´t found the gig in the archives at the time when they were making the TATDOL documentary MAYBE the gig doesn´t exists in the archives... but now i think it´s only a (stupid) suposition of my part...
i wish that the band (and specially certain producers,archivist,etc) had at least a little more of  "feedback" with us (specially when they don`t release almost nothing intresting in years)

The full Bob Harris documentary simply begs for a release. The American NOTW tour was a great one and ground-breaking as well.

So, maybe there is after all a video of that special concert! And that will be awsome (that is if we get to see it).

Exactly. Even if they have it in their archives, they won't release it. It's such a pity.

Who says they're required to release anything?  It's their stuff.  We need to be careful not to have a sense of entitlement.

These last six months have been incredible, to say the least - the exhibition, documentary, and bonus tracks on the deluxe editions.  And Brian May says a Rainbow '74 DVD is next.  What else can you ask for?

I agree, SirGH...

and re: the 77 'tour documentary footage... isn't that what all the new 77 era stuff was from that appeared in the BBC doc TATDOOL?  Lots and lots of interview bits and soundcheck moments, limos etc. that i'd never seen before... i assumed it was the pick of the litter from the unfinished Bob Harris stuff...

just speculating of course, and not that i don't believe there isn't tons more GREAT footage yet unseen out of that project...

Indeed, that's the stuff, all from Nov-Dec 1977.  It has been said that there are literally hundreds of hours of footage.

Yeah i agree with you (when i said "feedback" i mean "more information")... the bonnus tracks on the deluxe cd aren´t too great to me but the documentary was superb! the exhibition,too. I don´t expect too much of what Brian says since he said they  were to release Hammesmith 1975 a years ago and at the moment nothing happens; but a Rainbow Dvd would be Nice (i wish they put the two songs of March as bonus!)... Even if they only release the TATOOL documentary on dvd with extra footage i will be happy!

Cheers!

Honestly, there's also the possibility that QPL is just getting geared up for a whole slew of releases. None of us know, not even the archivists really. They may have more insight and knowledge then we do, sure. But they are not the band. Certainly all any of us can do is speculate as to what is going to come next...

And of course anything that gets released in the rest of the world, the US will get it another 3 or so months later hahaha!!
