From Amazon.co.uk

A complete concert of one of the best bands live, Queen Live at Wembley Stadium is the record of one remarkable summer night in 1986. This really was history in the making: no-one, except possibly Freddie Mercury, could have guessed that the band would only ever play two more concerts in the UK and would never return to Wembley.

Director Gavin Taylor's omnipresent cameras, including stunning aerial views, also remind us of the glories of the now-defunct stadium and its signature towers, such a perfect venue for Queen's epic staging, with their massive video screen and dazzling light show.

The second night playing to a capacity crowd saw the band at the peak of their form, riding high on the popular success of their recent string of hits: "A Kind of Magic", "I Want to Break Free", "Radio Ga Ga" and "One Vision" all feature here alongside earlier favourites from "Seven Seas of Rhye" through "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Will Rock You" to "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Under Pressure". In short, a veritable greatest hits collection--all performed with larger-than-life gusto, boundless exuberance and impeccable musicianship. In a period when most new bands were content to mime along to weedy synthesised backing tracks, Queen were simply bigger, bolder and a whole lot more fun than anyone else. Freddie Mercury's extraordinary stage presence is likely to remain forever unsurpassed.

On the DVD: Queen Live at Wembley Stadium is a superb memento of this memorable night. Disc 1 contains the entire Saturday gig (almost two hours) remastered in vivid DTS 5.1 or PCM Stereo. The second disc collects both contemporary and brand-new material, including new interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor. "A Beautiful Day" is a good documentary made at the time. More exciting is the wealth of unseen footage, both from the Friday night show and the band in rehearsal. There are "Queen Cam" views of each band member, and a photo gallery. Most poignant is a time-lapse short, "Wembley Towers", showing the philistine destruction of these national monuments. It's a fitting epitaph for this great live band. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

QUEEN LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM
1986 was without doubt Queen's year. Appearing at a sold-out Wembley Stadium, Queen are shown here at their most successful point in what was already an illustrious career. The band had stolen the day at Live Aid the previous year at the same venue, and these dates were the most anticipated of 1986.
Typically of Queen, the show was put on in the grandest manner. The largest stage set (160 feet wide!) an immense bank of coloured lights, and state-of-the art sound and vision system to cater for the 72,000 fans who had made the pilgrimage. The cameras seemed to be everywhere; stage side, in front, above, even helicopter shots looking over the stadium. It was as though they KNEW one day there would be a suitable medium to release this footage on.
But what of the band themselves - by this point the group were one of the very few great British rock bands of the 70s still playing, remarkably with not one change in personnel from their debut album. They had survived glam, punk, disco and New Romantic to emerge as the UK's biggest rock act. The set they played on the Magic tour was carefully considered, with old material sitting comfortably alongside more recent.
You see the approach to Wembley Stadium as the intro plays to 'One Vision' before the camera pans across an empty stadium, and time-lapse footage of the stage being constructed and the fans pouring in. The camera then switches to the stage, and first to emerge is the great Freddie Mercury, arm aloft, bestriding this huge setting.

Nearly 20 years ago I was at this concert, and little did I know that now in 2003 I would be watching this concert in such a great format.
The first disk is pretty similar to material that has been shown on TV and been out on VHS before (a couple of extra tracks however), so I will not comment too much on here, although obviously superior quality.
The second disk is the real gem however. You have your usual interviews with Brian & Roger (who provide some good insight into concert preparations). Also included are interviews with the Camera and Concert directors.
Back in 1986 someone used a dodgy camera to video Queen rehearsing for the tour in a warehouse, and that makes a great insight into the work thet Queen put into becoming the greatest live band ever.
Finaly are the Queen Member cams. Ever wanted to see exactly how Brian played a particular riff, but the camera edit went to Freddie just at the wrong point? We its not a problem any more, select The Brian cam, and the footage never leaves him. Same goes for the other 3 members. Fantastic!!
In summary, Disk 1 is for your casual Queen fan, the great concert in its entirity, remarkably undated. Disk 2, your die hard queen fan will love.
If you like live rock music, get this DVD now, it shows you how live Stadium rock should be done!

I love this DVD. Queen were remembered for their live and superb performances. This DVD has captured the magic of it.
The show starts with the brillant opener 'One Vision'. The jubliation of the crowd when Freddie Mercury comes out is fantastic and the one shot of him coming out of the smoke holding his sawn-off mic stand could go down as one of Rock's greatest shots.
The rest of the songs go through and the band pull them off with such class you might think they were from CD.
The light show is brilliant and Freddies Mercury is the perfect showman, jumping around like a mad man, but none the less you love to see him do it.
To pick favourite tracks is so hard but to pick my favourite it would have to be "Crazy Little Thing called Love". The Rock And Roll tongue in cheek always makes me smile and Brian May solos at the end are so great. Anyway, Brian May changes his guitar three times in that song!
The extras are good aswell. The interviews are amazing, but the multi angle section is such a great advantage. To flip between the bands between each part is a great idea, if only for some songs. Also the selection of songs from the Friday concert is great!
This is one of my favourite DVD's, showing a band who had conquered the world yet still put on a show to get it again.

The only way to describe this DVD concert is "wow". If you would like to see Queen at their best, this is the concert for you.

In the previous year to this Queen appeared in Live Aid, and decided that after the amazing response they gained in this concert that they would like to play Wembley. It astonishes me how these 4 men managed to carry the entire concert off ON THEIR OWN with only the help in a couple of songs, from long term friend and musician Spike Edney. The amount of energy that is put into every song from each member is incredible, and you definitely gain some of the energy through watching the concert; even though you are not physically there. I am yet to find a band that put as much effort into their public performances as Queen did throughout their career.

Another reason that you may wish you view this, is the fact that I was the last tour the band performed before the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991. It is without doubt a must see for any fan. If you have only ever heard their music on albums, I suggest that you watch them live, because they're pure magic. This is one that you can watch over and over again. Truely, a kind of magic!

As well as the legendary stage performance, this double disc set also invites you to watch the band in rehearsals. The second disc offers a whole range of different viewpoints on the concerts, so for example, say you are a budding guitarist wanting to learn a song, you can set the concert to just watch Brian May on certain songs! As well as this, the second disc also includes rare footage of the band rehearsing before the concerts - this is an insight into the amazing chemistry between the members and is increidbly fun to watch; even though the sound and image quality are not fantastic.

Buy this and take a little piece of Queen home with you. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed
