Hi, i think as well as releasing GVH3 they should release a DVD of Queen's last ever concert at Knebworth. Apart from Wembley that was probably the best concert of The Magic Tour. I had never seen it before so it would be ideal for Queen fans who had never seen the concert before. Let me know what you think

Didn't they say that there was footage missing?

Peace,

Can somebody confirm this?

Well then, if that's the case, use the original multitrack tape used to record that concert, and make a first live Queen DVD-Audio disc out of it. I'd say that's the next best thing, anyone agree?

The Knebworth concert on video is shared since almost one year in the Queenhub.
Okay the quality is not so good but it is in full color and......better something then nothing. It is a video-capture from the big screen on the top of the podium.

No. The setlist is virtually identical to Wembley - there's no point duplicating.

And if you want to listen to a concert in 5.1 - switch your TV off. Voila.

Why waste time making a redundant release?

Well, really, from listening to many people's opinions on this concert - It should've been released instead of Wembley. Not purely because it was the last ever show but, because it's a better show performance.

I haven't heard it, so I don't know that. But like I said, it's what I hear from many fans. I have heard a couple of tracks and they sound better than Wembley versions.

I think Wembley was released because of the supposed last show occasion, the xtreme planned video and the enormity of the place. I don't know if they see Knebworth in the same way? Hence the half-assed video for Knebworth. But the audio is a given...

Peace,
Adam.

Wow!!! Are you sarcastic? If yes- well done! If not...
Wembley is a quite crap gig whereas Knebworth is one of the best gigs Queen ever played. Maybe the setlist is virtually the same, but the performance- its like comparing Yugo to Ferrari...
I think Darks idea is really good (I never thought I would ever say that but...recently his posts are really good!)

Merci, Fenderek. I made a resolution to make better posts this year and try to be a better person, albeit I'm being a bit of a hypocrite right now, cos I'm making fun of Rosanna

It should be a good idea, indeed. Their performance in Knebworth was much better than in Wembley, probably the best of Magic Tour

Fenderek, P_G is right.

Wembley has already been released, you can't take it back, so releasing another show with almost the same setlist (even if the performance isn't the same) will be useless.

Obviously, if QP had the complete video and if Wembley wouldn't have been released, Knebworth would be a good idea. Since Wembley is already out, there's nothing that can be done.

That's a bit of a defeatist attitude to take, Guy. Never say never. Although Sean Connery should have(!), the point is, we may see it sometime soon.

Peace,

My point is:
of course I would rather see Milton Keynes out or Hammersmith'79 or some early shows. OF COURSE!!! But I don't agree that releasing Knebworth would be pointless... That's all- I agree, you can't take back Wembley release, but... C'mon- just compare London Saturday show with, let's say, Budapest. It's a huge difference!!! And Knebworth was even better!!!
Let me put it this way- I would ALSO love to hear Knebworth in 5.1- that's my point. Will it happen? Don't know... Maybe after Queen + Gareth Gates or sth. Or maybe never... But that's something I WISH

It's unrealistic to expect a DVD video release of Knebworth. For all we know it was filmed with only a few cameras while Budapest was filmed with 16 cameras. So, *if* a second Magic Tour DVD should ever see the light of day, it will most likely be Budapest. Wembley set standards and QP will certainly not fall behind that standard and we can hardly blame them for that. But I don't even think there will be another Magic show out on DVD for the reasons PG already explained - all signs point to Milton Keynes which will leave us fans of the early shows disappointed.

Yes!!! But we were talking about AUDIO DVD! That wouldn't be that BAD idea, would it?
