Why no professional footage from the Game tour 1980?

Postby J Starbuck88 » Sun Mar 10, 2013 11:57 pm

Hey all just a question that's been bugging me for the last week or so now but I'm just wondering why there's no footage at all (besides the little snippet of it on youtube) from the 1980 leg of the Game tour?

I know this is probably a stupid question and I'll probably get a few stupid answers and apologies if this has been asked before :)

I agree it seems quite odd especially considering the vast amonts from '79 & '81. Obviously it's possible some footage exists we don't know about or is sitting undiscovered somewhere?

It's possible footage does or did exist from the Houston '80 show as the venue had its own in house crew, that's why you see so much footage from various bands on YouTube. Greg did mention quite a few years back that they had discovered a very early '80s show they had no idea even existed, unfortunately he's yet to elaborate any further.

yeah that's true it's a shame as well

I know it's ANOTHER 80's show but it would be cool to see some pro shot footage from the tour (if there is any and considering it is one of the rarest Queen live eras) and wonder if it was one of those shows that Greg discovered, would be cool to see

Does anyone know when they pushed the button regarding filming Montreal? I imagine the initial idea must have been launched many months, even a year or more, in advance?
