I have the second release of the "We Will Rock You" DVD, and I enjoy it a lot. But I just spotted the new "Queen Rock in Montreal" DVD today, which is supposed to be the same title but remastered, or something.

This is the one I have:

This is the new version:

I also noticed that there is a Blu-Ray version available.

I like my current DVD, because it contains video footage of historic Queen landmarks and things (and maybe other extras I can't remember). But I was wondering if the new release of this concert is any better.

Any opinions are appreciated! Thanks...

Check out the many topics in the 'serious discussion' section of the forum, and there you'll see many opinions.

My two cents... I'd say the CD is good enough if you already have it on DVD. Although it does have the Live Aid '85 extras, if you haven't already got those.

The picture quality for the Montreal show isn't much different, but the audio is a very nice upgrade, in my opinion. The bass and drums sound very strong, and overall, it's simply the best-sounding Queen concert we've got at the moment.

I got anxious and picked this up today for only $12.00 - the Live Aid version, which I didn't know existed until after I posted the message.

This set is AMAZING! I can see Freddie Mercury in widescreen for the first time today. And the Live Aid footage looks like it was taped yesterday.

I'm totally satisfied... :D
