Features performers such as Metallica, Def Leppard, Elton John, Axl Rose, Extreme, George Michael, and many others. Performers alternate between doing their own hits, covering Queen songs, or jamming with the surviving members of Queen. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

VHS Version Is Better Than The DVD Version
29 September 2004 | by (Berthier, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

They Were There In 1971 And They Are Here In 2004.

Though One Thing's Different : Freddie Mercury Has Gone To Heaven.

Brian Has Still His Red Special Guitar Built In 1964 With His Father Harold And Roger Has Still His Sets Of Drums He Used In Queen But John Deacon Doesn't Want To Be Part Of It Anymore. Queen Died With Freddie He Said. Freddie Would Have Liked Queen To Go On. I Don't Think That's The Main Reason Why John's Last Real Concert Was On April 20, 1992 In Wembley. Queen's Musical Directions ? Performing With 5ive, Wyclef Jean Or Anastacia Maybe ? Anyway...They Were All There In April 1992...Even The King Himself : Freddie Mercury.

Making A Brief Appearance On Screen, I'm Pretty Sure Freddie Watched The Show From Above. George Michael Performing "Somebody To Love", Paul Young Performing Roger's "Radio Ga Ga" Or His Favorite Performer, Liza Minelli, Performing His Own Anthem, "We Are The Champions", I'm Pretty Sure He Was Applauding.

The VHS Version Has The Entire Concert While The DVD Version Has Only The 2nd Part. Buy The VHS Version For A Complete Concert Or The DVD Version For A Better Sound.
