Queen to release limited edition 6 DVD box set

Queen will release a limited edition 6 DVD box set on November 19 that features four concerts, including “Live At Wembley Stadium – 25th Anniversary Edition”, “Queen Rock Montreal”, “On Fire: Live At The Bowl”, and “Live In Rio.”

Exclusive to this package, “Live In Rio” features the band performing at the “Rock In Rio” festival in January 1985 in front of 250,000 fans.

“Live at Wembley Stadium – 25th Anniversary Edition” was originally released as a separate DVD in the US in March of this year, and features two sell-out shows at London’s famed Wembley Arena in 1986. This DVD includes the bonus film “The Magic Tour,” which features interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor filmed in 2011, where the members reflect on this 1986 tour.

Filmed in 1981, “Queen Rock Montreal” was the group’s only concert to be shot on 35mm full cinema format film (they were the first band to do so). Originally titled, “We Will Rock You”, this film was first launched at the Cannes Film Festival in May 1983. North America followed suit in September 1984, making “Queen Rock Montreal” the first commercially available film of Queen in concert.

Re-issued on DVD this past May, “On Fire – Live At The Bowl” features Queen in the midst of their 1982 “Hot Space” Tour. This show includes a second disc with bonus interviews, a photo gallery, and additional performances from Tokyo and Vienna.
