"It’s one of only three concerts of Queen captured on FILM rather than crappy non-hi-res digital – they are: Live at the Rainbow in 1976, this concert, and Budapest in 1986 – which will be a future project – and will be sensational."

from Brian's soapbox, the above is taken from his little speech regarding the upcoming Montreal DVD.

To be fair, Brian does not say Budapest will not be the next DVD release but looking at the history of Queen Productions, I would not be surprised if it was.

...And the same translated to English reads:

"There are now only two Queen concert which I don't hate, and could possibly even think of releasing... Up next (after the forthcoming QPR "Champs still rock" album, tour, and live video) will be Budapest 1986, available Christmas 2009 in stores near you."

Finally something interesting. But I'm pretty sure they'll fuck it up like all DVDs except Wembley and Bowl

Absolutely - Montreal is just going to be a clearer picture, better sounding fuck up of the original. Interesting how he manages to hide behind the mistakes of Saul Swimmer's crew whilst forgetting to acknowledge that Queen signed up for it; I don't buy the excuse that they didn;t know what they were getting themselves in to. They were wise enough by then.

Perhaps, with Freddie being openly rude to Swimmer, Swimmer decided to get his own back and fuck the editing up for him....... You reap what you sew.

Budapest is a legendary concert indeed but it will be very similar to Wembley. Why don't they release something from the seventies?

Money money money ...

What do you think a "causual fan" will buy ? A concert with "Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, We WIll Rock You, We Are The Champions ..." or a concert with "White Man, Stone Cold Crazy, Keep Yourself Alive, Liar" ...
They're (unfortunatelly) releasing nothing for the "die-hard fans" and collectors (how many years are we waiting till now for the promissed box set ? )

I agree with you but not for 100%. Greatest hits 1 was a big seller in the eightees. So I see no point why QP could not release a concert like Hammy 1979. Crazy Little Thing is there, We are the Champions, We Will Rock You, Now I'm Here, Bohemian Rhapsody, Tie Your Mother Down and Love Of My Life. These were also played on the Magic Tour. Songs like Don't Stop Me Now, Killer Queen, Somebody to Love, Save Me and You're My Best Friend were also big hits and... on the Greatest Hits album.

How did they ever get so popular? They kept releasing things noone had heard before, yet people STILL bought them.

Things like "A Night At The Opera" - that had ONE hit on it when it came out!

Huh? Was any Queen concert captured in digital (apart from ROTC)?

I suppose he means videotape...like The Bowl DVD was captured in.

Brian has problems with his memory for a long time. No wonders when you consider his age and the amount of alcohol and drugs and whatever ...

Actually, Brian and John were the tame ones. As I understand it, Brian shied away from narcotics, and only occasionally drank. Freddie and Roger were the wild ones.

But that has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I think what brian meant and queen fans with great knowledge of the band should know this but i think he's referring to the rainbow gig in 1974, and then the RELEASED date of 1976 where it was played as a support feature to a burt reynolds film. I believe that's what he was thinking of.

cheers.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

Rainbow show went to cinema to support Led Zeppelin's film The Song Remains the same, not some burt reynolds film.
The year 1976 is correct though. (It premiered in Oktober)
