Queen: Queen Rock Montreal + Live Aid 2xBlu-ray


Queen Rock Montreal, recorded live at Montreal’s 18,000 seater Forum over two nights in November 1981, is a celebration of Queen at the very height of their 80’s record-breaking achievements. It is also a historic recording of the very last concerts of Queen ‘raw’.

This was the time when Queen had topped both the US singles and album charts for the first time, had become the first band ever to top the UK singles, albums and video charts simultaneously and on their historic invasion of Latin America had broken the world attendance record for a single paying concert when 131,000 Brazilians saw the band play Sao Paulo’s Morumbi stadium. 1981 was, says John Deacon, “a year for discovering new audiences we didn’t know existed.”

For this new version of Queen Rock Montreal, the 35mm negative was scanned to ensure the highest possible resolution, which was then examined frame by frame to remove any dirt, damage or splices to enhance the sharpness and quality of the picture. The audio for both Queen Rock Montreal and Live Aid are presented in Dolby Atmos audio for the first time ever.

The double Blu-ray release features Queen Rock Montreal in Full Frame on disc one, as it was originally intended to be viewed, along with their iconic Live Aid performance, presented for the first time in upscaled HD with Dolby Atmos audio. Disc two contains the widescreen format of the concert, along with a behind the scenes featurette composed of Queen rehearsing for Live Aid interspersed with an interview with the band, recorded just prior to Live Aid. The Queen Rock Montreal and Live Aid performances are presented with LPCM Stereo, DTS-HD Master Audio, and, for the first time, Dolby Atmos. Queen Rock Montreal also includes a commentary track recorded by Brian May & Roger Taylor discussing the film.
