This claims to be a clip of The Hero in Vienna on May 12, 1982. It's great sound quality, and the picture looks semi-professionally filmed. Anyone know anything about this? Is it what it claims to be and is the full concert available

This is from Frankfurt 82 filmed by DoRo for a documentary. This specific YouTube piece was taken from an Austrian broadcast of the documentary, you can see the ORF logo.


I do not want any google ads here.

This is great Queen performance of the HERO but in my opinion the Bowl version ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and is a even better performance, although not too dissimilar.
Follow that Paul Rodgers!and the rest of you wanabees.

Thanks YV. This is a great version of one of my favourite songs. I love hearing the Flash gordon stuff live. Wonder is there any footage of Vultan's Theme/battle Theme around?* They played it on the Japanese leg of the 81 tour, for example at Tokyo Budokan February 17, 1981.

It's also pretty amazing to see the way the band members 'own' the stage in this clip. Fantastic stage presence.

*edit: check this out. best thing I've seen in ages:
