I've watched the concert live in 1992, and owned the NTSC laserdisc version as well as the 2002 DVD.
They improved the video quality of the concert and cleaned it up a lot. The picture may look a bit pixelated
since you are up-scaling from video to blu-ray, however, it always looked way saturated (especially the reds)
and now it just looks cleaner. Presented in full screen 4:3 does justice to it, since the 2002 DVD was cropped
to make it fill the screen therefore giving us less.
It will always be my favorite concert, and bring me to a time when the whole world will sit down and watch
something together. Well, at least all of Europe. The sound quality is good, not a day and night improvement
over the other versions I mentioned, even though it DTS-HD. There's only so much you can do with a video source
meant for TV from 20 years ago.
As far as content? It's still not the full version with Spinal Tap, all of Extreme's set, Def Leppard's set
and Robert Plant butchering "Innuendo" but, we have do everything else. Nothing beats George Michael's "Somebody to Love."
If you're a fan of Queen, or of any of the major acts participating, and you want to see a lot of rock legends on one stage, Buy it.
The American release VHS and laser disc releases had most (but not all) of the concert. The 2-disc DVD release in 2002 had LESS of the concert than the VHS and LaserDisc had (the DVD did not include the Extreme medley, the GNR set, or the Metallica set, for example) BUT it included bonus backstage and rehearsal footage that was not available on the Laserdisc or VHS as well as the Zucchero performance.
This new Blu-ray, if we are to believe what we're being told, fills in the holes. We get all the footage from the Laserdisc and VHS that didn't make it onto the DVD, and all the other DVD content that was never released on Laserdisc or VHS. The best of both worlds. Plus, it includes the Bob Geldof appearance that was not on the laserdisc or the VHS.
I'm told there was some additional concert footage that was released on Japanese versions of the tape and/or laserdisc that still isn't included here. But we weren't gonna get that stuff anyway.
Yes, the concert was shot in Standard Definition. It was more than 20 years ago, for crying out loud. But you can count on the Blu-ray image to be upscaled and still look a bit sharper and cleaner, even if only slightly, than any previous U.S. releases.
So what's to complain about? Nothing, really. There is more footage in this single Blu-ray release than was available on any previous single release -- in any format -- in the U.S. Everything in one place instead of spread out over different formats.
Received my Blu-ray on 10/23/13. Played the documentary feature first and was very, very pleased with how the concert footage looked in that documentary. Sharp, clear, bright.Read more ›
If you've already got one of the Laserdisc editions(particularly the Japanese or British Laserdisc releases) and you've transferred them to DVD-R, your homemade discs will suffice. I'm one of only a few hundred people in North America that has the equipment to play British Laserdiscs, and I long ago transferred this Laserdisc release to DVD-R, and those of you who have the Japanese Laserdisc release would be advised that your homemade DVD-R copies will suffice.
UPDATE: I cancelled my order for the endlessly postponed U.S.A. release, and I've ordered the UK Blu-Ray disc. I'll give you an update on its quality(or lack thereof) when it arrives. Eagle Rock Entertainment can't seem to get its act together. And I won't be surprised if Eagle Rock's upcoming Doors Blu-Ray disc also ends up being released only overseas.
LATEST UPDATE: I bought the UK Blu-Ray release from Amazon's British affiliate. The disc is indeed U.S.A. compatible(1080i all regions). The disc is 4:3 ratio(Non-widescreen) upconverted to 1080i. The surround audio is an upmix from the original stereo, and is presented in the "DTS-HD High Resolution" format(a lossy variant on the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio system). You might as well play the lossless 48Khz/16 bit lossless PCM soundtrack, and create your own simulated surround sound with your surround sound receiver or preamplifier.Read more ›

Very interesting lineup (including David Bowie and so many others). Since the concert was in 1991, the video isn't perfect but the sound makes up for it. Read morePublished 10 days ago by James

I honestly never thought I'd see such a good version of this concert. Sounds fantastic and looks... well, it looks as good as it could seeing as it was shot on SD video. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Nicholas Jenkins
Pretty good audio track, decent video (4 x 3) considering it was shot 24 years ago.
Lots of great Queen songs, and original Queen band members minus Freddy. Read more
