At long last, after 25 years or thereabouts, Queen's famous Budapest concert is finally remastered and released in the West. Get the Deluxe editions if you can - you get the concert itself on a DVD or Blu-ray Disc (whichever format you choose), plus two CDs with the COMPLETE concert, unlike the video which is edited (the Hungarian government at the time discarded the unused footage, which no longer exists).
Included with the concert is "A Magic Year", a short half-hour documentary chronicling the band's lives from their show-stopping performance at Live Aid up until the Magic Tour itself. Well worth checking out. A nice little addition to this release is a booklet which provides all the usual Queen information, and, as a bonus, the lyrics to "Tavasi Szel Vizet Áraszt", so if you fancy a singalong, then it's right up your alley.
Loved it when I saw it at the cinema, love it now. Don't hesitate - go buy it. It's superior to the Wembley gig in almost every way (although some numbers do sound better at Wembley than on this gig, but it's only a few). Go get it. :)
