New York, NY—Queen. Four Concerts. Six DVDs. Does it get any better?

On November 19, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the Special Limited Edition 6DVD set of Queen’s Live At Wembley Stadium – 25th  Anniversary Edition, Queen Rock Montreal, On Fire: Live At The Bowl, and Live In Rio. 

Exclusive to this package, Live In Rio features the band performing at the “Rock In Rio” festival in January 1985. Dazzling 250,000 fans, the setlist features such favorites as “Seven Seas of Rhye” and “Liar,” while spotlighting 5 songs from The Works, which they were supporting at the time.

Live at Wembley Stadium – 25th Anniversary Edition was originally released as a separate DVD in the US on March 12, 2013, and features two sell-out shows at London’s famed Wembley Arena in 1986. This DVD  includes the bonus film “The Magic Tour,” which features interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor filmed in 2011, where the members reflect on this 1986 tour.

Queen Rock Montreal, which was filmed in 1981, was the group’s only concert to be shot on 35mm full cinema format film (they were the first band to do so). Originally titled, “We Will Rock You,” this film was first launched at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1983. North America followed suit in September 1984, making Queen Rock Montreal the first commercially available film of Queen in concert. This was originally released on DVD on August 3, 2007.

On Fire – Live At The Bowl, which was re-issued on DVD this past May, features Queen in the midst of their 1982 “Hot Space” Tour. Plucked from over 60 sell-out concerts in the world’s biggest arenas, this show includes a second disc with bonus interviews, a photo gallery, and additional performances from Tokyo and Vienna.

All the greats are on full display in these concerts: “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody To Love,” “Under Pressure,” “We Are The Champions,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Who Wants To Live Forever,” “Radio Ga Ga” and many more.

Queen were, indeed, “champions” of the arena concert experience, and this 6DVD is a brilliant document of that, showing four different occasions where the band executed live brilliance.

I already have almost all of these items. You will also launch them separately?

The Queen estate should recognise the state of the economy and support hard core fans. We will buy this set but we should have option to buy RIO on its own. Upsetting that the rich dont care about the poor.

Rip off KER..CHING....Etc.....

We've already been supporting these live releases, including, in some cases, their subsequent re-releases. We shouldn't have to purchase them yet again just to get Live in Rio. This leaves a very bad taste... sorry fellas.

Fandango

Should I buy 6 DVDs now 5 of which I already own? No, I don't think so. They should release the Rio DVD separately. Otherwise, it would be nice to know that this product does not sell all too well. :P
