Hello everyone, for the past 6 months or so I have been looking and gathering up the best amount of footage which is currently available for Queen's legendary last concert in Knebworth which was 31 years today (as of me posting this).

By far the hardest task was compiling these clips altogether and then working out which clips last longer and which clips are better quality. So some clips fade into others and I've tried my best to make sure that the clips 'match up' as some clips' aspect ratio was messed up (mostly 'Magic Years' clips).
To give you a bit of an idea as to how this is laid out, here is a brief summery;
0:00 - 5:25 - Pre-show footage which contains (but limited to);
•The stage surroundings, audience members walking, sitting around, traffic jam, crate containers, etc.
• Helicopter flying over Stevenage and towards the park, the band members walking away from the helicopter etc.
• Freddie's vocal warm-up and the band's walk to the stage.
5:25 - 2:00:23 - This is the audience shot footage (which I have slightly cleaned up by making the blacks, blacker and some colour correction to reduce the green hue). At some spots, I have inserted photographs where no video is recorded (I assume it was for a tape flip).
2:00:24 - 2:07:02 - Pro-shot footage of the concert, which includes;
• One Vision (Snippet)
• Seven Seas Of Rhye (ending guitar riff) (Snippet)
• Another One Bites The Dust (Snippet)
• Is This The World We Created...
• Tutti Fruitti (Very short clip)
• Bohemian Rhapsody (Ending were Freddie jumps and salutes)
• Hammer To Fall (3 Short clips)
• Radio Ga Ga (Last 2 choruses, almost complete)
• We Are The Champions (Last chorus, almost complete. This song also has a section with 2 camera angles available, this is done with split screen.)
• God Save The Queen (Short clips)
