    Huge Queen fan, and those were truly terrific performances. Never a greater showman in music. And it's real music too, none of them had to wear more rubber than a Durex advertising mascot or F and blind in their music to be successful. I still follow what's left of Queen closely to this day, definitely much better than anything GaGa related. Just a shame about where she got her name from

    We recently bought the Live Aid DVD just for these, Queen is far more featured on the discs than anyone else, with good reason!

    Still yet to see that, keep meaning to go with the wife (also a fan)
    I'd ask if it's any good but considering how long it's been running it can't be bad!

    I would definitely recommend it. John and I keep trying to sort out going to watch it some time during BETT week, but apparently going out on the beer is a preferred option by some. They don't know what they are missing!

    My Dad still has their Wembley '86 concert on VHS which he recorded off Channel 4's 'The Tube'. He even paused it at all the ad breaks! Those were the days..........

    That must have been their "Kind Of Magic" tour ... I saw them at Knebworth later that year along with 120,000 others ... A fantastic day, but little did we realise it was to be the last one.

    Our Sixth Form are putting on a performance of We Will Rock You... it's actually pretty damn good (although I am biased) they've got a live band in to do al the music who are fantastic also

    It's good to see that the newer generation have been bought up to appreciate true quality in music not like as synaesthesia eluded too...

    *looks on my DVD shelf at his production of it*
    Its one amazing show if done right, but you WILL be dead by the end of it, its epic, I loved every minute of it was so sad to see it all come down :'( But I've got the DVDs we made of it for the memories and the photos
