Press Release: Hungarian Rhapsody DVD/Blu-ray/CD and Download Release

QUEEN ‘HUNGARIAN RHAPSODY – LIVE IN BUDAPEST’ WILL BE RELEASED ON DVD, BLU-RAY and DELUXE EDITIONS FOR THE FIRST TIME ON NOVEMBER 5th 

“Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest” is a must–see concert experience by legends of rock, Queen, and now comes to DVD and Blu-ray. It will be released on DVD, Blu-Ray, 2CD and DVD Deluxe Edition and a 2CD and Blu-ray Deluxe Edition on November 5th worldwide. 

Originally filmed in 1986, this momentous concert movie has been re-mastered in high definition and superb 5.1 surround sound. An amazing performance is now available to be seen in crystal clear HD clarity. 

Also included on the DVD and Blu-ray is a new 25 minute documentary feature entitled “A Magic Year”. This follows Queen from just after their historic show–stealing performance at Live Aid, London, on 13 July 1985, through the year leading up to the epic concert in Budapest. Using archive footage from rehearsals, interviews with the band in the studio and on the road during the Magic Tour - some of which has never been seen before - this fascinating feature has been specially created for this new release.

As part of the hugely successful 1986 Magic Tour that, poignantly, was the last to be played by the band with Freddie Mercury, Queen were for the first time able to include Hungary on the tour schedule. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was the largest concert ever staged at the Népstadion, Budapest, and the first Western Rock Concert staged in a stadium behind the then Iron Curtain. It was of such significance to the Hungarian authorities and film industry that a group of the country’s top film cameramen and technicians were brought together to film it for posterity. 

Staged for 80,000 ecstatic fans, the concert set includes favourite hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, I Want To Break Free and We Are The Champions. 

“We’re delighted that Queen fans across the world will finally have the chance to relive this amazing moment for the band. We knew a stadium concert in Budapest was ground–breaking, but hadn’t quite anticipated what a historic night it would turn out to be.  The concert looks fantastic on the screen in all its digitally re-mastered glory and the documentary does a great job of setting the scene – it really was an extraordinary time in the band’s history.”  Brian May and Roger Taylor

Мои дети выросли на Вашей музыке!! Вечная память Фредди!! In 1986 I lived and worked in Budapest and I was lucky! ! ! I was at QWEEN concert! ! ! I remember everything to trifles..... laughter, pleasure and tears, with happiness! ! ! Still anybody is better made than nothing and didn't sing! ! ! My children grew on your music! !

"Queen was a great band, I met thanks to my mom and loved it, was the best band in the world to me"

Chuck Wolkowich

I bought the DVD Blue Ray disc and it only came with the concert,still looking for the CD version so I can listen to their music in my car. I have all the 1991 re-released albums on CD that I just " retired " because I purchased all the 40th anniversary versions with long lost cuts and various re-mixes,and I love them,I listen to them everyday in my car,starting with their 1st album and finishing with Made in Heaven....I'm on Live Killers now to be followed by The Game.
