Review
This is a live album from the Wembley ’86 concert during the Magic Tour. It is over 100 minutes of live quality Queen.
It has some quality tracks and medleys with some great audience participation.

This is my favourite Live Queen album! I could play this one about once per week and I often play along on the piano for the whole concert – I have the set-list learned off at this stage!

This Concert was also released on DVD, with multi-angle scenes on certain songs.

About Queen Live at Wembley Stadium ’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 a companion Queen Live at Wembley Stadium 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 aging 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.
