Queen Live At Wembley Stadium

Queen Live DVD / Video

Release Date: June 9, 2003

DVD Features: Special Feature Information, Friday Concert (video test shoots), Interviews, Backstage Documentaries, Archive Rehearsals, Picture Gallery, and Multi-Angle Tracks.

Queen Live at Wembley Stadium is one excellent DVD, the multi-angle tracks are a brilliant addition to the DVD, it’s a pity there were not more songs included in the multi-view selection.

This is my absolute favourite Live Queen Concert and an amazing Queen DVD to have in your collection. I will put on this DVD of Queen at Wembley and I will turn on my piano and play along with the whole concert from start to finish. The first 5 songs are brilliant, with other highlights being Who Wants to Live Forever, I Want to Break Free and Bohemian Rhapsody. I would give Queen Live at Wembley a big 5 stars!

About Queen Live at Wembley ’86

The amazing concert was recorded live on Saturday 12, July 1986 during the ‘Magic Tour’ at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The album was released on 26 May 1992, with this companion DVD released in June 2003.

Almost exactly one year after their amazing Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in London, the now invigorated Queen returned to the Wembley venue to perform two massive sold-out shows to 150,000 fans in only 2 nights on July 11th & 12th, 1986. Queen’s Magic Tour band broke all previous attendance records.
Queen designed a massive scale stage which needed numerous trucks to transport. The stage was so big in fact that it went around 3 or 4 feet bigger than the stadium could cater for and the redesign only finished just before soundcheck on the first day of the concert. While this stage was being taken down on trucks elsewhere were delivering another stage to the next venue; so at all stages, one stage was being dismantled while another was being constructed in a rolling flow for the concert.
Brian May said “Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None of us realized that this would be almost the last time we played together.”
The Magic Tour was Queen’s final tour with the legendary Freddie Mercury. The two Wembley concerts stand as a fitting testament to one of rock’s greatest frontman at the height of his powers.
Freddie even said on stage, “You know something? There’s been a lot of rumours lately, about a certain band, called Queen. The rumours are that we’re going to split up, what do you think? ….. They’re talking from here!… My apologies, but I say what I want. You can forget those rumours, we’re going to stay together, until we fucking will die, I’m sure of it! Also, I suppose we’re not, we’re not bad for four ageing Queens, are we, really, what do you think?” – Those words resonate with me. Did he know at that stage that this could be his last tour? Either way, the footage from this concert is amazing and a great example of the power of Queen Live.
