MTV World Stage: Queen - Live At Wembley

June 27th sees the re-issue of 5 classic Queen albums (News Of The World, Jazz, The Game, Flash Gordon and Hot Space) and to celebrate MTV World Stage is proud to present the broadcast a very special live performance from the one and only Queen this Friday, June 3rd.

On July 12th 1986, the band played a mesmerizing show to a sold out Wembley with their massive video screen and dazzling light show to create an unforgettably larger-then-life spectacle.

Directed by Gavin Taylor, the show saw the band at the peak of their form, riding high on the phenomenal success of their recent string of hits: "A Kind of Magic", "I Want to Break Free", "Radio Ga Ga" and "One Vision" alongside earlier smash hits from "Seven Seas of Rhye", "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Will Rock You" to "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Under Pressure".

Queen Live at Wembley Stadium really was history in the making. No one in the 150k strong attendance, except possibly Freddie Mercury, could have guessed that the band would only ever play two more concerts in the UK and would never return to Wembley.

Live at Wembley is a stunning show performed with gusto, boundless exuberance and impeccable musicianship from one of the UK’s best ever bands. Queen were and will forever be bigger, bolder and a whole lot more fun than anyone else with Freddie's extraordinary stage presence likely to remain forever unsurpassed.

In recognition of Freddie's legacy MTV has donated the license fee for the broadcast to the following charities www.freddieforaday.com and www.mercuryphoenixtrust.com.

MTV World Stage: Queen - Live At Wembley

Paul watson

The whole magic tour was the best by any band ,past and present. No one has ever had a presence like Freddie. Over 350 million album sales Billion single sales, no 1 in all record books .the most successfull British band ever on length of time in the British charts (and let's not forget Freddie died in 91 so new albums are not frequently released.
Thank god for Adam lambert!! Not Freddie but the only singer (along with George Michael) who can pull it off by singing a queen song and performing as well. Now queen are getting the deserved respect in the u.s.a
Queen will always be big and a great part of British and the world of music.

Freddie r.i.p. long live the Queen
