has anyone watched this dvd yet if so how is it?
What is this DVD? Is it a compilation of footage from the various Knebworth concerts over the years, or is it a particular concert?
I actually attended the first two Knebworth concerts in 1974 (Allman Brothers headlining) and 1975 (Pink Floyd headlining) and would love to be able to revisit some of the performances from those shows - particularly the likes of Tim Buckley, Van Morrison, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Captain Beefheart, and Roy Harper.
It's an upgraded version of the previous "Live! at Knebworth" DVD that Image released briefly back in 1997. The contents featured the 1990 all-star charity concert (McCartney, Clapton, John, Pink Floyd, Plant & Page, etc., etc.)
It's long been available as a CD and various video versions. The Image disc is pretty poor, so an upgrade is certainly warranted. Haven't seen it, though, so I can't say.
The following is taken from Play.com:
Knebworth, Hertfordshire, Saturday, June 30th, 1990. 12,000 fans gathered for an historic event featuring a legendary combination of British artists...

Robert Plant: Hurting Kind / Tall Cool One / Wearing & Tearing / Rock And Roll
Genesis: Mama / Throwing It All Away / Turn It On Again medley
Pink Floyd: Shine On You Crazy Diamond / Run Like Hell
These are extracts from what all in all was a pretty reasonable concert of AOR rock. All or most of it was broadcast on BBC radio. I have an especial fondness for the concert because my girlfriend (now my wife) and I had it playing in the background as we moved her stuff into my house.
Hmmm, don't think I will bother - there is very little on that list that appeals to me.
I still have clear memories of the 1975 Knebworth concert at which Pink Floyd were headlining. They presented the full Dark Side of the Moon show but with the added extra that it kicked of right on sundown and with a very low fly past of two (or was it three?) fully camouflage painted Spitfire fighter planes. It was a pretty spectacular way to start a concert!
I remember that version of Page/Plant's Wearing & Tearing really blew my socks off as I hadn't heard it before.
Given the playlist, I think I'll be checking this one out.
from what i can tell the knebworth dvd has been pushed back at least a week
I have the 97 one it is not very good audio I tried to get it today but no one had it so I ordered on line from Best Buy I wonder if I will get.
