Trivia

This is from Queen's famous "Magic Tour", which was their biggest ever world tour and also their final tour with the classic lineup of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. Their final concert with Mercury as frontman was soon after this one, at Knebworth Park. Because of Mercury's declining health (he was diagnosed with AIDS the following year), they were never able to tour again. See more »

Quotes

Freddie Mercury: You know something? There's been a lot of rumours lately, about a certain band called Queen. The rumours are that we're going to split up, what do you think?
[audience yells "No!" and Freddie points at his ass]
Freddie Mercury: They're talking from here! My apologies, but I say what I want. You can forget those rumours, we're going to stay together until we fucking well die, I assure you.

"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!
