Why were some tracks edited out of the Tubular Bells III concert video?

0

The concert started at 21:00 with the extract of Tubular Bells. Then we had TBIII in full, and as encores we got: Moonlight Shadow Family Man Secrets / Far Above The Clouds. Virgin own the rights to the tracks released during Mike’s time on that label, so WEA could not include Tubular Bells, Moonlight Shadow or Family Man on the video. Differences between the VHS and DVD versions: Whilst the DVD version has superior audio quality, some small edits have been made. For example, during the opening of FATC (Encore) the whole crowd shouts “Tubular Bells” along with the girl, but the crowd cannot be heard on the DVD. This is a pity as it gives you an idea of the atmosphere on the night (along with everyone dancing to Moonlight Shadow!). Credit: Alex Reid, alex@snowfox.co.uk.

For example, during the opening of FATC (Encore) as the little girl gets to “…except for the sound of Tubular Bells”, the whole crowd shouts “Tubular Bells” along with her, this has been removed from the DVD version.
