Trivia

The concert was shot using video cameras, which was then fairly unusual for professional concert footage, which in the 1980s was normally still captured on film cameras. As a result of it being shot on video instead of film, the picture image is slightly softer and bright lights cause noticeable comet trails on the screen. See more »

"Hello again my Beauties"
27 May 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've had this on VHS for ages, and last year upgraded to the excellent new DVD, what can I say, it is simply amazing. I've seen a fair few bands in the last decade live, but none have come anywhere near to matching rock's royal family.

Queen were surely the best live band in history, they just seemed to get it so right. Sadly other Queen live videos inc 'Rock in Rio' and 'We Will Rock You' don't do this justice, either too tinny, or dormant audiences, but 'Wembley' is an amazing record of one of their best shows.

Each band member oozes confidence and ability, Freddie was born to play Wembley and he knew it. The audience clearly know it too and respond with admirable energy to the great singalongs.

Too many highlights to mention but Fred's majestic voice, Rogers pounding drumming, John's foundation threatning bass and Brian magical guitar work combine to create the ultimate live treat.

How I wish I'd been there, but I was only 9!

There are some half decent pretenders out there but no-one can and probably will come close to Queen live, now that's magic!
