Default Queen: Live In Montreal - More details



Queen Rock Montreal & Live Aid Blu-ray

Queen Rock Montreal & Live Aid Blu-ray Review

QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL
PRESS RELEASE

On 29 October 2007, Eagle Rock Entertainment simultaneously release two incredible DVDs capturing the incomparable Queen in their pomp as the world's biggest band at a sold out show in 1981 at Montreal's 18,000-seater Forum. The single DVD is "Queen Rock Montreal" and there is a special edition double DVD "Queen Rock Montreal + Live Aid". The live CD/LP from the concert is released on the same date on EMI with HD-DVD and Blu-ray versions to follow in November through Eagle.

Click here for full press release and packshots!

"Hello Montreal...long time no see. You wanna get crazy?" asks Freddie as the band tear into their alternative 'fast' version of We Will Rock You, and from there on Queen show their hard rock roots, slowing down only for Love of My Life and the more mid-tempo Under Pressure, notably being performed live for the first time in this concert.

TRACKLISTING
1) Intro 2) We Will Rock You (fast) 3) Let Me Entertain You 4) Play The Game 5) Somebody To Love 6) Killer Queen 7) I'm In Love With My Car 8) Get Down Make Love 9) Save Me 10) Now I'm Here 11) Dragon Attack 12) Now I'm Here (reprise) 13) Love Of My Life 14) Under Pressure 15) Keep Yourself Alive 16) Drum & Timpani Solo 17) Guitar Solo 18) Crazy Little Thing Called Love 19) Jailhouse Rock 20) Bohemian Rhapsody 21) Tie Your Mother Down 22) Another One Bites The Dust 23) Sheer Heart Attack 24) We Will Rock You 25) We Are The Champions 26) God Save The Queen

TRACKLISTING (Double Disc Live Aid footage)
Live Aid: 1) Bohemian Rhapsody 2) Radio Gaga 3) Hammer To Fall 4) Crazy Little Thing Called Love 5) We Will Rock You 6) We Are The Champions 7) Is This The World We Created

The real joy to be had in watching Freddie, Brian, Roger and John performing here is that, unlike any other Queen concert film available, this delivers raw Queen. This is before the Hot Space album, before keyboards would find a place in the band's touring line up; this is simply four musicians in total cohesion.

Both these releases offer extraordinary footage of one if the greatest acts of all time, recorded at the height of the powers. Truly, Rock royalty.

Awesome. It's a must have for me although the camera work will be a bit doubtful as it was shot in 1981 when cameras couldn't handle the contrast so there will be flaring everywhere. Still Freddie in HD - awesome! Oh, and Dr Brian May too (Jumping the gun a bit I know but at least the PhD thesis is finally in.)

Cameras can't handle contrast flaring? I think that's only applicable for video cameras which would not be HD. If this is in HD, then it has to be shot on film.

Unlikely. "Queen Live at Wembly Stadium" was shot on video and it was around the same time. It suffers from bad camera flaring. Be nice if it was shot on 35mm but I doubt it. Anyone know for sure?

Well, from what the article says, it is basically the We Are The Champions show, which is out on DVD. I have both that show and the Live At Wembley show and the We Are The Champions disc has superior PQ and Audio to it, even having been recorded 6yrs prior to Wembley.

PAL video. You can see the cameras in several shots, and in the documentary the guy talks about how they had to plan for when people would change out the tapes.

The LiveAid footage better be on the BLu

Personally I can't wait to see this on BD! I am sure that the video they took back then was film. Queen filmed all their concerts for future releases. They would be likely to remaster it from the original. Even though I would love to see one of their more modern releaes as well on BD such as the LiveAid, or the Freddy Tribute concert, I would rather actually see Freddy and Brian and Roger ad John in HD a they looked in the old days, especialy since Freddy is now gone and John is in hiding so to speak,

Still, I hope to get a lot more Queen on BD, among othe bands.

I've been seeing this title in the "New Pre-Orders" sidebar all day.

Okay. I'll say it: Queen f*(k*ng rocks.

Okay. Maybe I wish a mustachioed Freddie kept his shirt on the whole show.

But I am secure enough and old enough to admit I probably have to have this.

Am I the only one?

I totally agree with you. There is nothing quite like Queen when they were in their prime. Freddie Mercury is the greatest frontman of all time (aside from Mick Jagger) imho. Queen with Paul Rodgers just can't compare.

I'm SO there.

I've been looking at this title on the movies page, just dying for the "Pre-order Now" button to show up. Yesterday afternoon someone posted a sale link to J&R.com, and I saw it available for preorder there. I thought "Hey, what gives Amazon!?" Later last night, I went to the movie section again, saw the button, and preordered it immediately along with a few other preorders that were sitting in my cart waiting.

I LOVE queen.

Queen and AC/DC in the same month.

Just when I think I've figured out how to finance this addiction they throw another title I want out. Pretty soon I'll just stand outside of Best Buy and bum change of people.
Now the real pain begins, Danny-boy.

Question Queen Rocks Montreal & Live Aid

I see that Amazon.com is stating that this pre-order BR disc will supposedly play in BR players REGARDLESS of region. Question: Is that unique, or is BR "Region-free" and playable universally, be the disc a UK, EEU, Japan release, etc?

Queen has always had a "one disc for the world" thing going. They made a PAL version and an NTSC version and that was it. Blu doesn't have TV system problems, so one disc
