According to QPL it wasnt recorded.Or if it was it was recorded over.So there's no point in continuing this thread.

If they had it in the vaults,it would have been on sale,well and truly,before now.With all the bells and whistles on it too.

what they should do, seeing as how they have the multitracks for the gig, is to release it on blu ray audio and stick on whatever footage they have, both pro shot and audience sourced.

the audio will be superb, so I'll take any visuals they've got, as long as as they make it clear that it is a mix of different sources

i know QP said they didn't have the gig in their vaults. And i really think they haven't the video, is just a ''if they have''.

But when i started the thread i was thinking in the quality of the Second night of Wembley, Brian said that he don't want to recored the Knebworth gig so maybe they used the same cameras (less quality, less angles) than in First Night.

If they recorded the gig in the same poor quality like the first night is a great excuse for don't release the gig. Brian admited that the the first night at Wembley is good only for a bonus of the main thing.

And yes, for the fans is different, i enjoyed the first night and i will enjoy the Knbworth gig if is released, but QP has a global market not only fans.
Thanks to God we have Budapest.

I really don't give a hoot about Knobworth. There already are two Magic Tour gigs released officially, so why release yet another? (yes, yes, I know, their last concert ... so what?) We need something from the 1970s.

Re-release a remastered Budapest en include Knebworth Audio as a bonus. And Knebworth Video if available. It would be a nice final Magic Tour release.

However, i can't see it happen because Wembley is already out there and most people won't buy multiple shows from the same tour.

There were 2 camera teams in Knebworth, the first one was "broadcasting" the video to the giant screens, the second camera team was working for DoRo. The DoRo footage still DOES EXIST, you have even seen it in many many documentaries

Right! the snippets of the sea of hands from Radio Ga-Ga and God Save The Queen. Also the complete Is This The World We Created as we all saw in Magic Years.
But the DoRo team had only two cameras that night? Or they had more?

I think this thread is going on a little offtopic, and only want to know if they recorded Knebworth in the same way as Wembley (the first night, no less)

Anyway, between Knebworth and Budapest i choose Budapest, even if they were fimed in the same quality. Both are strong gigs, Knebworth crowd was better, but the gig of Budapest was historical, much more important than Knebworth and Wembley, i think. Wembley was a favourite of Brian (and maybe Freddie) and a more mediatic event, so the event became in their iconic performance.

No. Wembley was shot on video, Knebworth was shot on film

Yeah! Thank you very much!

But only the cameras of DoRo team record in film, no? Or the ones for the gigant screen are also film cameras? Can a camera feed the screen and record in film at the same time?

Thanks in advance!

There was a cameraman right in front of me on the left hand side of the stage. Whether that was just for the screen who knows.

I've only been visiting these forums for about a year but I'd a good idea this may have come up before. So I found this old thread which may answer some of your questions.

http://www.queenzone.com/forum/1059738/this-is-why-i-think-knebworth-86-concert-footage-doesnt-exist-in-archive.aspx?page=1

It's pretty clear there is no footage of the whole concert. Bummer.

==================

I do, at the front left of the stage is one of the 2 (or 3) Doro cameras; slightly further back would have been the screen feed camera.

Or it could have been the other way around, I forget, I worked it out once.

I dunno. Am I the only one who feels pity/depression when he sees people in the throes of denial?
