This and Queen's performance at Live Aid are absolutely epic, it the truest sense of the word. If you don't like Queen after seeing either of those performances you never will.

It depends. Are you talking about Freddy Mercury, or are you standing over another man who has your spoo in his facial hair?

This kicks so much ass. Freddie was a great performer that delivered his art with such grace and love for his craft and fans. I was nearly five when he passed and I didn't realize for another three years when I had started to like Queen (thanks Mom), that he had died. I was nearly inconsolable.

I recorded this concert on VHS when it was aired in October '86. Still have the tape around here somewhere, though it's showing some wear from repeated re-watching over the years.
Hell of a show. All the band were on top form, and Freddie was at the peak of his powers. If I ever get myself a ride in the TARDIS I'm gonna ask the good Doctor if we can go see it in person.

Last time they tried to go see a concert, they ended up in 1953, having to fight the Wire. NOOOOT a good idea to try to go to concerts with the Doctor.

I was born in 1978. To this day, my two biggest music regrets is being too young to go to a Queen or INXS concert. Two great front men indeed.

For this gig that's a chance I'm prepared to take.

Queen was my first live show (back in 1980 during The Game tour). I've always considered myself fortunate to have a band of this calibre break my concert "cherry"

In before someone even attempts to suggest rock ever had a better front man.

Bon Scott would like a word, as would Roger Daltry, Mick Jagger, Ozzy etc. Yes Freddie was top notch, but to say he was the best as fact rather than opinion is silly.

I kick myself (pun unintented) for breaking up with a girl and giving up my ticket for that night's INXS Kick tour concert (@ 1989) we were suppose to see. They were awesome seats too.

And Pink Floyd in Nashville 1994. "I'll see them next time." Guess not.

Incredible band. Incredible singer.


As a relatively young person, I had a fistfight in highschool because a kid said Queen II was their worst album because all the songs had no start or end. The asshole was listening to it on random on his mp3 player. Who the fark listens to albums on random the first time they get them.

Okay the fistfight was more because I called him stupid in ways that would make Edmund Blackadder blush, but still.

According to Wikipedia INXS was an opening act for the 1986 Wembley concert. That show was made for you.

Other opening acts that day were The Alarm & Status Quo.

Never really liked Queen, but I think I have some tapes in my car that must have transformed into a "best of queen" album by now.

INXS may not have their frontman around, but they still put on a good show. I saw them a few weeks ago and had an awesome time.

You answered your own question.

People raised on mp3s don't understand the purpose of a well constructed album

It's not just a collection of songs - order is very important - something those companies that re-release classic albums with tracks out of order would do well to remember

A friend of mine has this on DVD. Watched it already.

But you're damn right if you think I want to see it again. *plays*

Whenever I get a new album on to my iPod, I always listen to it in order the first time.

Maybe that's just me. I was raised by my dad to do such things. Also because I actually remember listening to albums on cassette tapes when I was a wee lad.

The same thing happened to me! I think I was 9 or so. One of my cousins told me he was dead- and I didn't believe him. When I found out it was true from my aunt; I remember crying & my cousin calling me a baby.
 
2011-09-05 11:56:36 AM
Well, it isn't quite the full concert, as there are a few songs missing. But still freaking awesome.

Occasionally, I'll hear a song on the radio or in public I haven't heard in a while. At some point in the song I'll expect it to just stop... since that's how it used to play when it was on a mix tape I made (and tossed) years ago. It very strange to hear the song uninterrupted. Still, I always preferred the interruption and tape-flip to messing with the track order.

RIP Freddie.

Gonna be a great day to watch some live concerts. I just received the T.Rex movie Born to Boogie and it's got two full live shows and a documentary feature, and now I've got to make time to watch the Queen show as well. Time to fire up the vaporizer and crank the speakers!
