"I agree with just about everyone else who has reviewed this DVD, how can the people who edited this cut out the BEST performance of the concert which was Extreme's medley of Queen songs. I thank my lucky stars I still have it on tape from when MTV first aired the concert 10 years ago. It's my favorite part of the show and by far one of the coolest moments. The band, most especially Gary Cherone, payed tribute to Freddie and Queen in the best way I've ever seen. The medley of songs were performed with such excitment and the audience loved them. So did I :) This DVD just starts the concert with Joe Elliott doing Tie Your Mother Down, that's like the middle of the show! There were several performances cut out mainly Metallica, Guns 'N Roses, Def Leppard, and the above mentioned Extreme. This DVD needs to be re-issued in it's entirety. I did, however, like those Freddie segments included on the dvd that were shown to the audience during intermission. Those were really cool. Great concert but not shown to it's fullest potential on this dvd and that's a real shame. QUEEN AND FREDDIE deserve more...and so do the fans :)"
Move on, you don't want this one....

"As a fan of both Queen and the bands that perform at this show I can honestly say this is the worst edition of the concert ever published.
I recorded it when it aired live on MTV, and I'd still have it if my dad hadn't taped over it! They did an absolutely horrid job compiling this show. So much is missing. Robert Plant's oustanding cover of "Innuendo" is missing, as is Def Leppard's cover of "Now I'm Here" and Extreme's 15 minute long Queen medley.
I also hate the menu design, it's very difficult to navigate.
On the positive side there are plenty of extra goodies, such as band interviews and all the videos they played on the big video screens in the stadium in between acts.
Overall this is not nearly worth the 20+ dollar price tag."
