Trivia

This is from Queen's famous "Magic Tour", which was their biggest ever world tour and also their final tour with the classic lineup of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. Their final concert with Mercury as frontman was soon after this one, at Knebworth Park. Because of Mercury's declining health (he was diagnosed with AIDS the following year), they were never able to tour again. See more »

Simply Amazing!!
8 April 2005 | by coogansbluffSee all my reviews

This is by far THE greatest concert ever staged by Queen! Filmed when they were at their peak and with all their classics songs this is a must have for every Queen fan or any music lover at that!

All the great tracks are here including - "a kind of magic", "I want to break free", "Another one bites the dust", under pressure" plus a few of their lesser known songs(to non Queen fans anyway) like "in the lap o the gods" and "is this the world we created". Oh and I can't forget the legendary "Bohemian Rhapsody".

The DVD version is amazing, you can almost feel the atmosphere of the crowd in your lounge room! This DVD made me wish I was born a few years earlier so that I could have attended such a magnificent entertainment spectacle!! Also contained some interesting interviews and behind the scenes doco.

In summary, a must have for anybody who appreciates great music!

Now if only I could invent a time machine...
