Pink Floyd - On The Turning Away

Queen's Legendary Wembley Shows Released

Both of the band\'s historic shows released for the first time

On 5 September Queen release 'Queen Live at Wembley Stadium', a special 25th Anniversary edition DVD of the band's legendary 1986 concerts. The 2 disc set comes with previously unreleased footage and brand new bonus features.

On Friday 11th and Saturday 12th July 1986, Queen performed two sell out shows at Wembley - concerts which have been widely acknowledged as two of the most iconic rock events ever staged. Now, for the first time, both the Friday and Saturday night concerts can be seen in their entirety on the Anniversary edition DVD.

The DVD footage has been restored for the Anniversary edition and the sound has also been remastered with a brand new stereo mix and 5.1 sound.

Extras on the DVD include 'The Magic Tour', a short feature containing brand new interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor filmed this year in which they reflect upon what was to be their final tour. They explain in depth how they approached planning their concerts and they also reflect on the poignancy of the shows which were to become among the last few performances with Freddie.

The release date coincides with what would have been Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday. The final five studio albums that Queen released are also re-issued on the same day.

"The Wembley concerts in 1986 were the pinnacle for us" says Brian May. "We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None of us realised that this would be almost the last time we played together..."
