Hi folks... You know, there used to be a comedy TV show here in Brazil (from 1988) called "TV Pirata" on Globo TV (the same that taped the Rock in Rio concerts), and now this tv show in running at a local cable tv... Anyway, on this series thay showed 1 very very very short clip of Freddie (about 3 seconds)... It was definately Rock in Rio, but the scene was in the afternoon... Freddie was doin' his typical movements, with no shirt and wearing a "cowboy" hat (just like the one he wears when Queen is arriving in Rio, as shown on "Champions Of The world" if i'm not mistaken)..
I taped it, and i'll try to get the video for you guys...
So, here's my question: Does anybody know if there is any footage from queen doing a soundcheck (or rehearsal) for Rock in rio? I have never seen this clip they showed and now i'm sooooo curious hehehehe..
That's it, thanks in advance!

Yes, there is a video recording of the soundcheck.
It was recorded on 8. I. 1985. (4 days before the concert!), and it was broadcasted on TV. Two songs were recorded: "Radio ga ga" and "Jailhouse rock".

this 3-second clip that i've seen it's not so bad quality (because the original footage was used, i think).. But that would be really interesting.... I think i'll try to contact this tv network and see if they can get me a copy!
