As 2006 is the 20th anniversary of Queens last ever gig at Knebworth, i believe they should release it on DVD, cameras wsere there as is proved on the rare live vid. So even if the quality isn't fantastic, release it.
What does everyone think?

I dn't see the point of releasing a concert with exactly the same setlist as Wembley. What we need is a seventies release to showcase som eof Queen's heavier and earlier songs.

Just got my copy of Wembley '86.

As much as I *love* the bits from the rainy Friday show, I really think they could have splurged and thrown at least a little Knebworth on Disc 2.

Final Live isn't too hot in my view. Now I'm here, Tie Your Mother Down and Tear It Up are wrecked by bad sythesisers which sound like they were overdubbed. The guitars are pushed right out of the mix. Freddie's voice is rather weak too, particuallr yon Killer Queen which he really struggles with. Still there are some highlights including a stomping version of Keep Yourself Alive, an elegant Somebody To Love and Hammer To Fall which sounds really powerful here.

Yes, a dvd from The Game tour would be interesting. It may be fairly similar to the MK setlist I suppose but then again they did play '39, Don't Stop Me Now, Death on Two Legs etc on that tour before being dropped in '82 so yes you may have a point there.

The more DVD and Live footage there is the better - it would be great to have a DVD for each Queen tour.

Knebworth sd people have said is too similar to Wembley, I'd love to see a show from '77 they did a very good live performance in '77. i wouldn't refuse a nice better quality version of Hammersmith '75 though.

I'd love to see Knebworth. I've never seen it before and being Queen's last performance I think it should be released. If it The Beatles it would probably be out.

here is a question for some of you who know more then i do-why does it seem like QP never does the right things for the real fan base?im sure they know what we really want,do we ask too much from them?Give us a great quality concert with limited dubbing and BS.We have bought every single piece of product they have ever produced.Just once how about something with extra footage and better then average production.ANATO aniversary combo was a complete disgrace,ROTC was a one disc hastily done project.You guys have taken gazillions of dollars from us-give the diehards something to enjoy please!Brian-are you reading this??

Although their last, it wasn't the best. You must be a post 1986 fan as the shows they did before the magic tour are the ones that need releasing.
I would kill for Earl's Court 77, more footage of which has recently turned up on NATO special edition.
We already have Wembley 86 so why do you forget about Hyde Park in 76?

Let's face whatever they release they are gonna make us wait so let's just hope they all come out in our lifetime.

QP can never "get it right" because they aren't making products for the real fan base.

ROTC is the only kind of concert product (no extras and minimal production costs) that will ever bring any profit to the record company and/or the band, so that's what they're going to put out... The older concerts are excluded from the same kind of prospects because they would require a few weeks of work before release!

I still wonder. Is this show completely filmed? I doubt it, actually.
