Editorial Reviews

On July 27, 1986, Queen performed the largest-ever stadium concert at the Népstadion in Budapest in front of 80,000 ecstatic fans. The concert was part of the famed Magic Tour, which was the last time the band toured with lead singer Freddie Mercury. Now, this original concert film has been remastered in high definition and features many of Queen's favorite tracks Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, I Want To Break Free and We Are The Champions. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was the first Western rock concert performed in a stadium behind the then Iron Curtain. It was of such significance to the Hungarian authorities and film industry that a group of the country's top film cameramen and technicians were brought together to film it for posterity. / Bonus Feature:

I saw this on at the movie theatre last night, and WOW! I was blown away. I adore the Wembly concert, but I think this one is at least as good, and perhaps better. Freddie's voice just soars, and i love hearing his choices, to harmonize a particular line, or punch another one. He's wonderful to watch, too, of course. Seeing him singing the folk tune in context was great. The video and audio quality were fabulous.
There are cut-aways to the four of them periodically, doing interviews, publicity events, and just hanging out. It was fun to see them in those contexts, too, and added to the movie.
It's more than just a concert. It's an event.
Sometimes after a really rough day, I'll watch Wembly, just to help cheer myself up, and soon I'll have a choice. Can't wait!
Enjoy, everyone!

This is a terrific concert film of Queen's 1986 gig in Budapest. Although the shots/camera angles of drummer Roger Taylor onstage are frustrating during the first song or two - it's as if the camera crew struggled to get Taylor's face/head in the frame, clear of cymbals, tom-toms, etc. (Taylor is seen at better camera angles from song three or four on.) Be sure and get to the theater early (Sept. 27) or at least on time to see some 1986/85 in-studio footage and 1986-era interviews with all four members. There are at least three subtle hints by Mercury and the band during interviews that hint at Mercury's illness with HIV and, eventually, AIDs. When asked if Queen will return to Budapest to play another concert in the future, Mercury says, "Well, I'll tell you what. If I'm alive, I'll come back." Queen never did. 1986 was the last year they toured with Mercury - Mercury already was ill at the time. Another interesting comment in the film during the interview portion has Mercury saying, "I want to make sure we're healthy to go out on the road again. I don't want to just go out there and do it." There's excellent takes of "Under Pressure," "I Want to Break Free" and "It's A Kind of Magic" included in the concert portion. Actually, all of the concert footage is good, and even the two or three mistakes have charm (Mercury's voice cracks once, but hey, it's live music, and he was already feeling the effects of cigarettes and HIV by the time they hit the road in 1986.) Leaving the theater, the viewer will agree that Queen easily is among the top five rock bands of all time, and Mercury's voice, preserved on Queen's albums and in their concert films, remains music's greatest male voice ever.

I owned this on VHS and LD back in the day... so I was curious as to how it would transfer to BR... and also the 16x9 crop as both previous editions were 4x3.
RESULTS? it LOOKS GREAT!
Of course reading the liner notes in the lovely booklet enclosed reveal that this show was indeed filmed by Hungary's leading cinematographer/director who used every 35mm camera in the country and shot it on FILM not video.
As they say in the notes "This is the last complete concert shot entirely on film. So junk that old laserdisc, throw the VHS in the bin and burn the bootleg.

HIGHLY Recommended!

PS...the repurposed nearly half hour documentary is fun and I particularly enjoy the large interview chunks with the retired John Deacon.

This is a commanding Queen performance. The footage really captures each band member's enormous contribution to this epic concert. Freddie is in awesome form - his voice, his showmanship, his costume changes, his rapport with the audience, his bit with the flags - just all around undeniably incredible. Brian shines as usual with his tremendously talented playing and energized performance. Roger plays the drums with his intense immediacy and tenacity, thus earning the privilege of (almost) wearing Freddie's crown at the end. John's fierce performance and captivating bass lines add a complete exclamation point to the show. The personal moments with each band member throughout the performance are quite enchanting. The editing and vivid color and lighting of the footage is completely spectacular and does the concert total justice. This is indeed a very special capture of what makes Queen such an amazing, legendary band. Love it!

You could quibble with the arrangements and longer set list of Live at Wembley, but for quality, energy, and capturing the band, this is the one. The video, audio and overall production is excellent. The Hungarian crew made this so good it looks and sounds more like 2006 than 1986. Freddie's voice this night is ON. Less self indulgent than Milton Keyes. It's a band giving to it's audience.

The people who criticised this Blu-ray disc for not including the full show as presented on the accompanying 2-CD set(I bought the Blu-ray + 2-CD set) have failed to read the booklet. The raw, uncut camera negative no longer exists. For "Another One Bites The Dust", "Hello Mary Lou" & "(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care" (if they were filmed), the film footage no longer exists.

My question concerns a new variation of DTS-HD Master Audio that is used on this disc. It is "DTS-HD High Res Audio". When played on my Oppo BDP-83 disc player(playing through an Integra DHC 9.9 A/V Processor), the audio is played as 4.0 audio(the subwoofer & center channel are silent). Has anyone else experienced this issue?
