Queen's Hungarian Phapsody Live in Budapest

(Not sure what is happening here but the white background was not my doing)

September 20, 2012 marks a special day for fans of Queen , long has it been since there has been something for the fans of this phenomenal group to be seen, even this being a concert that has been available for sometime.
It has been remastered and is in 5.1 Digital Surround Sound for its worldwide first cinema screening.

Tickets are available now at participating theatre box offices and online at  A complete list of participating theatres and showtimes is also available online.

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapeston November 6, 2012, in multiple formats: DVD, Blu-ray, digital video, DVD/CD and Blu-ray/CD.


The film opens with a special 25 minute documentary that follows Queen from just after their historic show-stealing performance at Live Aid on July 2, 1985, through the following year leading up to the concert in Budapest.  Using archive footage from rehearsals and interviews with the band on the road - some of which has never been seen before - this fascinating intro feature has been specially created for the theatrical release.

As part of the hugely successful 1986 Magic Tour, the last to be played by Freddie Mercury, Queen were, for the first time, able to include Hungary on their tour schedule. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was the largest concert ever staged at the N├ępstadion, Budapest, and the first Western rock concert staged in a stadium behind the Iron Curtain. It was of such significance to the Hungarian authorities and film industry that a group of the country's top film cameramen and technicians were brought together to film it for posterity.

Staged for 80,000 ecstatic fans, the concert set includes favorite hits like 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love', 'I Want To Break Free' and 'We Are The Champions'
I am looking forward to see this myself being a long time Queen fan.

Thank you for reading this
Hope you come back again
Till Next Time
