    Default More Info About Bad Tour on Film

    We know that they did shoot 35mm film on Bad Tour but here might be some more info about it. I don't know if someone has noticed this before but the colorist Warren Eagles who worked in London in 1988 talks about it a little bit in this 2011 podcast around 06:30:

    http://www.taoofcolor.com/441/interv...eagles-part-1/

    He says that they were shooting film for fun in those days. 35mm, 16mm and they had stacks on film.

    He is the same guy who wrote this:

    I really hope Estate still has all the footage so they can release a concert on Blu-Ray. I didn't know if I should have put this thread in 2000 Watts section or here. This is not about downloads so I think this is the right place for this.

    Yeah I feel like we heard all this before.

    When you think about it, the Bad Tour was like the biggest tour ever up til that point. The biggest star on the entire planet on his first ever solo tour - and also touted as the last - breaking Guinness world records at will....and it wasn't filmed? Or it was filmed and the footage simply lost?

    When you consider the other artists out there and the wealth of filmed material that exists of them it really is quite shocking.

    My opinion - the estate has all the footage and is sitting on it for now.

    My exact thoughts. The idea that that they never filmed at least 1 concert in full makes no sense whatsoever. Even if they never fully catalogued all the archives in 2012 doesnt mean that they haven't done it by now..
    I think Hulk mentioned someone on an FB group stating that the estate found the Wembley films just before bad25 was supposed to be released and decided to shelve it - just hearsay but if true, it's a good sign that the film isn't lost...

    It sounds the kind of thing a fan would make up.
