Default Judas Priest Proshot Chronicles

I did a similar list at the old Quorum, but it was lost for all eternity when Baxter pulled the plug on it. What I'm trying to do here is to list all known pro-shot Judas Priest live performances that haven't seen an official release yet. Some are available as bootlegs, while some are only known or rumoured to exist but never seen by anyone. For simplicity's sake I've included a section for each era/tour.

If I've missed something, please write it in this topic so I can add it to the list. Especially from the 200s onwards there might be some performances I might be missing.

1969-77: Absolutely nothing. Only the 1975 Old Grey Whistle Test performances are known to exist, and they've already seen an official release on the Electric Eye DVD.
1978 Stained Class: Probably everyone has seen the five-song bootleg from Tokyo recorded on 31st July, which was presumably commissioned by CBS to promote the band in Japan (it being their first tour there). They also appeared on a couple of TV programs miming Exciter and giving a short interview.
1978-79 Killing Machine/Hell Bent for Leather: Promo videos for Take on the World and Killing Machine were recorded at the Brighton Dome on 31st October, existence of any further footage from there is unknown. Clips from the Brighton promo videos were used on the 1993 Metal Works VHS. A promo appearance for Rock Forever on German TV with live vocals and mimed instruments was recorded on 30th December 1978. A clip of The Green Manalishi being performed in Berlin on 3rd December 1979 exists.
1980 British Steel: The Breaking the Law official video contains a clip of the band on stage, shown on the security guard's TV. Where and when that clip was recorded and if there's any more of it is currently unknown. The fact that it shows Rob with his "poodle"-hair instead of the shorter haircut seen in the rest of the video indicates it might not have been created solely for this music video. Could be outtakes from the recording of the Living After Midnight video at
Sheffield City Hall on 11th/12th March.
1981 Point of Entry: No professional footage known to exist, only some 8mm fan recordings. There are rumours of pro-shot video from Hamburg though.
1982-83 Screaming for Vengeance: Nothing known except for recordings made by a student film club at the MSU University in 1983 (the exact date is unknown, but it might be Lansing Civic Center on 21st January).
1983-84 Defenders of the Faith: Highlights from a December 1983 show broadcast by ZDF are well known, as is the first three songs of their appearance at Channel 4's The Tube in January 1984 with a further two being somewhat rarer, coming from a broadcast by the Italian
Videomusic channel. A clip from The Tube appearance was used on the 1993 Metal Works VHS. A few days later they lip-synced Freewheel Burning on Razzamatazz. And where did the crowd scenes in the Love Bites video come from?
1985 Live Aid: Partially available on the official Live Aid DVD, missing one song and the interview. Master tapes for the missing content may be damaged/lost due to wiping by ABC and BBC.
1986 Turbo: The 23rd June San Antonio concert was filmed to supplement the 27th June Dallas concert which forms the majority of the Priest...Live! video, as the Dallas venue (Reunion Arena) didn't allow pyrotechnics to be used. Some other 1986 clips from unknown venues have appeared in interviews.
1988 Ram It Down: The music video for Johnny B. Goode was filmed at Roxy Theathre, Amsterdam, Holland on 3rd April
, with four songs (LAM, BTL, TGM, YGATC) performed to "warm up" the band before the actual video was shot, although it is unknown if the other songs were filmed. On Setlist.fm there's also a report of a concert in Poznan, Poland on 4th May with a different setlist and a comment that says "Video was filmed but never used, possibly for a 2nd single from the Ram It Down album". Persistent rumours claim that the 7th August New Haven concert, popular as a FM broadcast bootleg, was also filmed. However apart from a minuscule clip of Electric Eye, buried within a news report about the Reno court case, no pro-shot footage is known to exist definitely.
1990-91 Painkiller: Footage from the 13th September Concrete Convention show exists. The Detroit show from 5th December is available as a full pro-shot bootleg, however as it was taped by a fan from the venue's internal TV feed it is unknown if professional master tapes exists at all. Their appearance at the Rock in Rio festival in January 1991 was filmed and is widely available as bootleg, with one track from it being included as bonus content on the Classic Albums: British Steel DVD. The 26th February 1991 show in Zagreb was partially covered by Croatian TV, however it is unknown if the master tapes even survived the Yugoslav Wars. The show at Irvine Meadows on 12th July 1991 was filmed for ABC's In Concert, with a clip from it used on the 1993 Metal Works VHS. The whole show is also available, sourced from the in-house feed.
1998 Jugulator: The 19th March show at Cologne's E-Werk club was filmed and partially broadcast by the German VIVA music channel (note: Maddrakket's Info Pages claims this video comes from the 2nd April Hamburg show instead, but all other sources state it originates from Cologne). The 8th April show in Brussels was filmed and partially broadcast by the Spanish
40 TV music channel. These two have been put together into a bootleg release called "Jugulator TV Compilation".
2001-02 Demolition: The show in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 1st September 2001 was filmed and broadcast by the Volver TV channel.
2004 Reunion: Their visit to Bulgaria was well covered by Bulgarian TV: first, they appeared on the "Slavi" talk show on 17th June, giving an interview and performing an acoustic rendition of Diamonds and Rust, after which their concert on the following day was filmed and broadcast in full. Two shows in Spain on 24th and 25th June were filmed and partially released on certain special editions of the Angel of Retribution album.
2005 Angel of Retribution: The show in Birmingham, England on 19th March was filmed by the band for an upcoming DVD, but the footage was shelved in favor of the Tokyo Budokan concerts in May, which formed the Rising in the East DVD. Glenn has stated that four shows on the tour were filmed. Rob, Glenn and KK were interviewed by Eddie Trunk on VH1 classic, with acoustic performances of Diamonds and Rust and Worth Fighting For. The Mexico City show from 3rd September is available as a bootleg sourced from the in-house feed. The show in Santiago, Chile on 13th September was filmed and broadcast by the Via X channel.
2006: The band appeared at the inaugural VH1 Rock Honors on 25th May, performing Breaking the Law, The Green Manalishi and You've Got Another Thing Comin'. This was filmed and broadcast at a later date.
2008-09 Priest Feast/Metal Masters/British Steel 30th Anniversary: The Graspop Metal Festival show from 27th June 2008 was filmed and is widely available as a bootleg. A free admission mini-concert was held on the 2nd September 2008 edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
2011-12 Epitaph: The band appeared on American Idol on 25th May to perform a medley of Living After Midnight and Breaking the Law with contestant James Durbin; this was the first public appearance with Richie Faulkner in the band. The show at the High Voltage Festivalon 27th June was filmed for TV highlights and originally meant for an official DVD release as well, however technical problems with the projection system prevented this from happening. On 7th October the band appeared at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, performing Breaking the Law and You've Got Another Thing Comin'.
2014-15 Redeemer of Souls: Three songs from the High Voltage Festival show on 12th June 2015 were broadcast on Palladia HD on 6th September 2015.

I'd love to see some pro shot footage from the Ram it Down tour.

An official quality release of Rock in Rio would be cool, even though Axl Rose forced Priest to neuter their stage show.

Added stuff from 1998 onwards. I probably missed something as the band has appeared on quite a few TV programs in the past couple of years.
