The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert

Posted June 25, 2013 03:35 PM by Webmaster

Eagle Rock EntertainmentEagle Rock Entertainment will release The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert as an SD Blu-ray – with upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD surround sound for the best possible quality. This release boasts newly remastered sound across both sections of the concert and represents the first time the opening acts' performances have been made available on Blu-ray. Street date is September 3rd.

On April 20th 1992, Roger Taylor, Brian May and John Deacon, the surviving members of Queen, took to the stage at Wembley Stadium for the start of one of the biggest events in rock history, which the band had organized to pay tribute to their former colleague – the incomparable Freddie Mercury. Queen were joined by some of the greatest musical talent in the world to celebrate Freddie's life and work and to increase public awareness of AIDS, the disease that had prematurely ended his life the previous year.

The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert features many Queen classics in unique performances including: "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Hammer To Fall", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Radio Ga Ga", "I Want To Break Free", "Under Pressure", "Somebody To Love", "We Will Rock You", "We Are The Champions" and many more. Special guests include David Bowie, Gary Cherone, Roger Daltrey, Def Leppard, Joe Elliott, Extreme, Bob Geldof, Guns 'n' Roses, James Hetfield, Ian Hunter, Tony Iommi, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Metallica, George Michael, Liza Minnelli, Robert Plant, Mick Ronson, Axl Rose, Seal, Slash, Lisa Stansfield, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Young & Zucchero.

As well as being great entertainment, the concert raised a huge and still growing sum of money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity formed at the time by Roger Taylor, Brian May and Queen's longtime manager Jim Beach whose charter is the relief of suffering from AIDS throughout the world. Profits from this release will be donated by the Mercury Phoenix Trust to AIDS charities around the globe.

I see that Robert Plant's confused interpretation of Innuendo is still missing, though that doesn't bother me. He did ask that they not put it on the last DVD release. It does have some of the songs missing from the original US VHS release, but still looks to not have Spinal Tap and 2 of Extreme's songs, and 2 of Def Leppard's songs.

I will be buying this, as Queen is my favorite group and some of the bands presented are up there too.

Sweet! I remember watching this and rewatching it many times on an old VHS copy. Excited about this!

Still complete bullshit that they NEVER release concerts compete EVER. Robert Plant is an asshole for not wanting Innuendo released. It was an historic moment in that it was the first time the band Queen had ever performed even a portion of it live. The best part was when Roger Taylor nearly forgets when to come back in with his drumming. It's not about YOU Robert. I guess I'll get out my bootleg copies again...seeing as how this was shot on tape, the only real upgrade will be in the sound dept.

Still not included: Extreme - Love of My Life (a Queen song, so I don't know why it's not included), More Than Words; Spinal Tap - The Majesty of Rock; Def Leppard - Animal, Let's Get Rocked; the aforementioned Robert Plant w/ Queen - Innuendo; and U2 - Until the End of the World (that one was via satellite, so I'm not sure it counts). Memorable for Vivian Campbell's debut public performance w/ Def Leppard, following the death of original band guitarist Steve Clark. I guess I'm keeping my bootleg VHS copy, although that doesn't include the Bob Geldof song.

Any word on whether it will be the original 4x3 broadcast version? I'm glad I'm not the only one to notice all the still missing performances. I have a bad copy of the original MTV broadcast and the Japanese laserdiscs, but will pick this up if it's not cropped to 16x9. I'm not sure what other Queen material will be released. I'm still hoping for a Greatest Video Hits 3, since 2 didn't have all the rest of the videos. If the made in heaven videos were done on film, maybe we'll get those in HD some day.

Yea, wonder why they omitted some of those songs (EXTREME did Queen proud with their set, they even said so [Queen members]). Can't wait to get this - I remember watching it LIVE the day it was on tv.

I have pre-ordered this too, as said before why the entire concert is not on this releases and was only on the VHS is such as shame, I remember years ago putting the Extreme melody onto mini-disc, they did a great set, Brian even said that "these guys get it"

Why oh why we get the incomplete releases and don't get blu-ray's of video hits anymore, I have so many on DVD but would love to upgrade them all to Blu-ray

Aside from Plant not wanting his butchering of "Innuendo" included, I have no idea why the other performances are still being excluded from any official release. It could be at the artist's request, it could be some legal red tape, who knows? (and no, the U2 bit most certainly doesn't count. They weren't there that day, it was "live via satellite" so who cares?) I'm a bit confused as to why they are bothering releasing a 21 year old concert shot on videotape to Blu-Ray or why they haven't created any new supplemental material or feature any more of the rehearsal footage (there's tons apparently.) As for other Queen material, there was very little they actually got on film and what has has already been released on BD.

George Michael's take on "Somebody to Love" was the most memorable performance of the night for me. The joy and energy on display was amazing! Extreme was outstanding, too.

I'm all over this if for no other reason than to get the Extreme medley.
