A must for Queen fans but not a keeper since the sound and video are not great. Freedie Mercury steals the show with his strong vocals on We Will Rock You, Boheminan Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust, We Are The Champions and Somebody to Love.

Doesn't do Queen justice

"When I first saw this at the store, I wondered why it was released on DVD. This has always been the worst of the Queen live videos, but that's not their fault. Queen play as well as ever, but it seems that both the audience and the audio engineers were asleep for the whole show. Even in 5.1 digital audio, the sound is horrid. The drums and bass are completely lost throughout, as if you're listening to it through a drive-in theater speaker. And the audience...good Lord, they don't even know the words to "Love of My Life" (as Freddie dejectedly points out during the song). More than once he tries to coerce them to stand or even clap their hands, but to no avail. So avoid this one, as much as I hate to say it, and start bugging Hollywood Records to release Live at Wembley or Rock in Rio...tapes that do Queen justice."

"A must for all serious Queen fans. This DVD presents the images and sound of Queen in a new light. The sound from Brian's guitar
on " Love Of My Life " leaves you looking for him playing it in your lounge room as the sound is so unreal. The clarity of the picture makes the concert seem like it's no where near as old as it is. Even though we only see Queen up to and including the " Hot Space " album,it does allow vintage Queen like Roger Taylor's " I'm In Love With My Car " which is so raw and pure.
Also features a great version of Brian May's guitar solo ( Brighton Rock )which this crowd needed to rev them up somewhat because the crowd tended to be a bit tame. Freddie sounds great as usual and " Save Me" and his guitar effort on " Crazy Little Thing Called Love " are highlights to remember. O.K enough said now go out and get it all you serious Queen fans."
Didn't really rock me

"As a long time fan of Queen (I saw them live in the early 70's) I was dissapointed with this title. The sound quality was poor even for the 80's and the look of the film makes me believe that it was originally shot for television rather than the big screen. The biggest mistake however, was made when synchronizing the vocal with the video. I believe that Queen played this venue two nights in a row with both shows being recorded. But the producers seemed to take audio from both nights (the best bits I guess) and dub them over the video so ,many times I could hear Freddie singing but could not see his mouth move. Overall I think the Queen performance was very good, but add to the mistakes listed already with a less than enthusiastic audience (why did they choose to shoot the film here anyway?)and poor camera work, it leaves me feeling a little ripped off. There are thousands of Queen fans in the US who are starving for more Queen video/music, and I know that there is a lot of much better material out there than this. I am suprised that Queen put it out in the first place, and this coming from a guy who, several years ago bought a laser disc player just to watch a collection of Queen live videos not available on tape. Give us live at Earl's court, live at Hammersmith or live at Hyde Park, but not this."
