Live at Knebworth concert from 1990 to be issued on 5.1 Blu-ray


Eagle Vision will release the 1990 Live at Knebworth concert this March on their  “SD Blu-ray” format with three hours of uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound.

The concert was staged to raise funds for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy and the Brit School For Performing Arts and featured a very post-Live Aid idea of ‘rock royalty’ with Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton et al. Tears For Fears represented the young guns! To be fair the line-up chose itself since it was drawn entirely from acts who had been recipients of the prestigious Sliver Clef Award for outstanding services to the British Music Industry.

The blu-ray is region free and is released on 16 March 2015.

Best Concert of my Life ever! Sunburnt during the day, soaked and windswept at night. How atmospheric was that for Pink Floyd to come on. Blew my mind. Walked 10m home in 6″ Thigh Highs. Slept 19hrs straight. Thought I’d dreamt it.

Dave Nazzaretta

Watching David gilmour singing in the rain and with a big smile on his face you can see he was loving it and his group was performing excellent considering the factor of all the rain and possible danger involved with all the cables and wires.I love Pink Floyd and I thought they were excellent and as far as the rest of the concert I wasn’t much into a lot of those groups apologize for that. Pink Floyd and David gilmour rule!


Release the whole show please!


Received this today … haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but it claims to be “newly restored” for the SD Blu-ray release. The spec has:
VIDEO: 1080i High Definition 16:9 (4:3 PB)
AUDIO: LPCM Stereo, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1


Whatever the limitations/omissions of this release, it is only £9 on Amazon UK at the moment. Excellent value as far as I’m concerned.

Peter Neski

This was shot in HD and they are giving us SD?? not to mention all the music they are leaving out

Peter Neski

No Not Film HD The Japanese laser was clearly transferred from HD

[…] ELO Out of the Blue – Live at Wembley on blu-ray in March. Like the Knebworth release SDE reported on recently, this is an “SD Blu-ray” which means non-HD video (it’s upscaled standard […]


Too me Eagle Vision just dumped a repeat of the DVD release a number of years back with the same footage. I’m not rushing to pick up this release unless it’s dirt cheap. I can live with the SD [if it was filmed in that] but to sucker us with the same footage?

Brad Chase

I sat thru and recorded the show from FM direct to a VHS recorder. Status Quo were definitely the best of the bunch; it was all downhill from there.
If ever there was a show that could use a reissue/release it’s that one.

Phil Cohen

Even The Japanese Laserdisc version(released as 2 separate volumes) was slightly longer. It had two more songs from the Cliff Richard set(“Living Doll” & “Do You Wanna Dance”). I transferred the Laserdiscs to DVD years ago, after buying, then selling off, Eagle’s very poor looking DVD edition(which had a layer change break in the middle of one of the Paul McCartney songs)


This is disappointing. I had hoped the 25th anniversary of this event would be the ideal excuse to release this complete and unedited. This was the last great British “everybody you could ever hope to see in one day” charity concert. My mate and I stood at the front for the entire day, willing our bodies not to need the toilet! You can actually see me at one point over Clapton’s shoulder while he’s playing a solo.

It was such a magical day, you almost wanted to pinch yourself in case it wasn’t real. If ever a concert deserved be released in all it’s glory, this is it. Can you imagine a line-up like that today?

Dave Figgley

Ha ha. +1

The “toilets” consisted of a yellow river running down the side of the field, mate. You definitely needed to assume a certain, awkward, stance!

Having been forced to consume huge quantities of bottled beer (or have it thrown in the skip) before entering the site didn’t help matters.

TFF were fantastic but my overriding memory of the day is laying face-up to a perfect, fluffy June sky listening to Cliff and The Shads belting out “In the Country.” Literally priceless, sunshine.

Oh, to be back there! Plant and Page were equally fine. As a kid in the seventies, I was a fairly regular visitor, courtesy of my parents’ boring estate car, to the adventure playground at Knebworth and had seen people setting-up for all manner of gigs. Frustratingly, I knew it was forbidden fruit to me as a twelve or thirteen-year-old. Was it Floyd or Zeppelin they were building the stage for?

Fuck nose, geezer. Anyway, June 30th 1990 was a memorable one. The rain held off until Floyd’s set which is when we jumped on the bikes and headed back down the A1 to NW London. It had been a long day.

I was dried-out and back in bed within 90 minutes, mate, whereas some car-bound friends didn’t get off the site until 4am.



This initially looked enticing, if a little disappointing that there were obviously many missing songs. Having read the highly informed comments above, I’m far less interested. Eagle Vision appears to have taken the easy route and dressed it up a little bit. :(


Eagle Records released a 2 cd set in 1990 ‎– ER201732, same track listing. Maybe they will just use that source and do a cheap bit of magic and change it to 5.1. It also is only SD Blu ray ( typically standard-definition television quality). So I expect not much would have been done with the PQ also. IMO this will be a disappointment. Hope i’m wrong.


I was there and probably one of the best concerts I have been to. Even the rain never spoiled it. Eight of us sitting on a large poly sheet with I pulled over our heads. Unfortunately I was on one of the ends of the poly sheet getting wet trying to hold it down with a pint in a plastic glass in the other.


I agree a buck is a buck is a buck. We purchase many items we don’t really need. Why can’t most companies put out complete ( get the legalities out of the way ) concerts? Who wants an incomplete set list.
I would buy this concert for the majority of artists I like. What are they saving the missing footage for?
Just like with Led Zeppelin, and Robert Plants’ perfectionism run amok. Unless, his voice was hoarse all the time??
Give us Live Aid complete and all the Led Zeppelin concerts that are available, but not seen.


I was at this knebworth concert, what an amazing day. I have a vcd of this and my vhs of the mtv broadcast. Thanks for the info on this release.

John Kearon

That is a great set that should have been set down on 5 discs and people like me who can’t get enough of the great bands of that era. It is also the same with Live Aid where they only had 16 hrs of a 23 hr show. If this full show ever materialises I will be first in the queue being a big Pink Floyd Genesis and Robert Plant fan.

Graham Aveyard

But not necessarily in that order

Darren Gray

There’s lots missing. Pink Floyd did an hour-long set for a start; Clapton + guests played for an hour-and-a-half; And so on…

What’s really annoying though is that there was an official VHS box-set release with bonus VHS tape featuring Clapton’s “Sunshine Of Your Love”. So the DVD and now Blu-Ray have failed to include all the previously officially released material.

Julian H

To be fair though, many of the concerts had some techincal issues. You can hear the complete TFF set on YT and on memoriesfade dot com, to get an idea of how it was

Matthew North

Will we ever get to see this concert in full I still have my pretty decent sounding recording of it from the radio and the Channel 4 tv version as well as the original release (And a Camera in the audience bootleg of the complete Floyd set) . so much space on a Blue ray for an SD filmed show and not a single bonus track.

Jr Larsson

I agree … not to mention the 15 minute Sunshine of Your Love with one of the best drum jams ever!

Mark Rorke

Hi Paul, do you actually have the entire show ? If so how could I get a dvd copy from you…

Mark Rorke

I would still give anything for the entire show


My fear is that the sound will be as bad as the previously-released DVD version. I bought that with great expectations and the sound is like 80s-style tv/radio compression….awful and unlistenable.


Great audio and region free awesome

John Kearon

I am pleased that this deluxe edition is region free as I live in America and know this won’t play if it is region 2
