This review is from: Queen: On Fire - Live At The Bowl [DVD] (DVD)
I only got into Queen in a big way with their Greatest Hits release a couple of years before this concert was shown on The Tube on Channel 4. By the time Hot Space was released I was convinced Queen were the best rock act on the planet, and I would have given anything to see them live. Having missed out on their Leeds concert I was absolutely beside myself when I discovered their Milton Keynes show was going to be on telly! But I wasn't prepared for how good the show was actually going to be. I've had my VHS recording of this (edited) concert for 21 years now, and only recently got it backed up onto DVD. I must have seen it several hundred times. Of all the concerts I have on DVD (and I have some good ones) this is by far the most energetic, the most fun, the tightest show I have seen. Maybe I'm biased because of the memories, but Queen On Fire showcases Queen at their absolute best (Live At Wembley is better known but nowhere near as good as this).
