"This is a model DVD release for a rock band. No corners seem to have been cut! The concert footage itself is very good, the extras are excellent, and there's a lot of care and attention paid to every last detail of the packaging. This probably isn't the best concert in Queen's history, but it's probably the best filmed Queen concert, and that's more than good enough for me. Everything you loved, or hated, or loved to hate about the band is preserved in exceptional detail. It's almost like being there. I prefer this DVD to other filmed Queen concerts, to be honest. Queen were not only first-rate rockers but also fantastic showmen, and Freddie and Brian's showmanship is nothing but captivating. This is one of my favorite concert DVDs, and is well worth a purchase instead of the collections of Queen lip-synched videos also available on the market."
All time great!

"Perhaps this is the number one best live rock video you can buy. It's queen in their last live tour at a place that loves and appreciates them the most. Some of the reviews are just too picky. One person even suggested this isn't an actual live video. Huh? What else is it? Sure not all of queen's 2 1/2 hour concert is here, the video is about 75 minutes but all 75 minutes is live footage from that concert. One can argue some with the song selection, something else instead of tutti frutti for example but most of the show is fantastic and contains stuff from most of their albums over the previous 15 years. The band hits the stage running just before sundown with "one vision" and "tie your mother down". Then comes an onslaught of hits and favorites and freddie has total control of the crowd. Rarely can you see a concert where the audience of that size is so close and intimate with a band. The band itself plays a tight, inspired self assured concert. Seasoned pros at their best playing before long time friends. Definitely a special moment and who would have guessed that just 5 years later freddie would be gone and queen would be no more. Everyone should own this video!................socks"
Queen's Best Concert on DVD

"By 1986, Queen was at their absolute peak. They had placed themselves up there with the greats. So during their Magic Tour, they decided to professionally film their Wembley Stadium concert. They played two nights at Wembley, July 11-12 1986, and each night they packed in 70,000 plus. Since it rained the first night, the Wembley Concert DVD is from the sunny, July 12th.
Since there is no track listing to be found (except for the Live At Wembley CDs), I will provide you with one.
1. One Vision
2. Tie Your Mother Down
3. In The Lap Of The Gods
4. Seven Seas Of Rhye
5. Tear It Up
6. A Kind Of Magic
7. Under Pressure
8. Another One Bites The Dust
9. Who Wants To Live Forever
10. I Want To Break Free
12. Brighton Rock Solo (Brain May's Guitar Solo)
13. Now I'm Here
14. Love Of My Life
15. Is This The World We Created
16. (You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care [Cover]
17. Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart) [Cover]
18. Tutti Frutti [Cover]
19. Gimme Some Lovin' [Cover]
20. Bohemian Rhapsody
21. Hammer To Fall
22. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
23. Big Spender [Cover]
24. Radio GA GA
25. We Will Rock You
26. Friends Will Be Friends
27. We Are The Champions
28. God Save The Queen
The first thing to point out is that Seven Seas Of Rhye is only 1 minute, 18 seconds long here. In other words, it's not the complete song. That's okay though, since the Rest of the DVD is a gem. Brain's guitar solo ends up at more than 9 minutes, and in the middle of the concert, Queen throws in covers of old songs. Ending out the DVD is We Will Rock You, followed by Friends Will Be Friends. First, it's only 2 minutes of Friends Will Be Friends, but surprisingly second, it's not the We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions combo. That's okay, I never mind a little change once and a while.
Overall, the concert is excellent. It contains many great Queen songs, and other great non-Queen songs. You have songs on here like One Vision, Another On Bites The Dust, Now I'm Here, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio GA GA, We Will Rock You, and We Are The Champions just to name a few. The stage is huge, and Freddie Mercury manages to cover every square inch of it. Every moment, he's somewhere different.
The bonus features are as followed:
1. New Interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor
2. Multi Angle Feature
3. Rehearsal and Friday (July 11) Concert excerpts
4. Backstage Documentary
While watching the bonus features, you'll learn more about the Wembley concerts and how rainy it was at the Friday concert. You'll also learn about the camera positions and see Queen in multi angle. For four songs (One Vision, Under Pressure, Now I'm Here, and We Are The Champions) you can select one band member and watch him for the entire song. The Queen Live At Wembley bonus disc is better that most bonus discs are.
In the end, you get a wonderful Queen concert and an excellent bonus disc, along with a photo booklet for a list price of 20 dollars, but the sale price is usually under 15 dollars. It's a great DVD set and I recommend it to anyone who doesn't yet own it.
If you like Queen Live At Wembley, then you will also enjoy the Live Killers CDs, The Platinum Collection, and Queen On Fire: Live At The Bowl."
WARNING: DO NOT CONFUSE WITH THE BRAZILIAN DVD BOOTLEG

"Check some of the 1 star reviews for this DVD. It's not because it is bad, but because these people bought the wrong DVD.People please pay attention... The Official 'Queen Live at Wembley DVD' includes 2 Discs and shows Freddie on the cover kind of kneeling on one foot.
The Brazilian bootleg has only one disc, it doesn't include the complete show and it has very poor audio and video quality. It's a pirate version and it shouldn't be sold in stores. Please be careful when you buy it."
