I still think there's going to be one.  Maybe that info is incomplete?

 I hope you are right, that the blu-ray will be out in a few months or something. I e-mailed Brian about this, let's hope he at least knows the answer

Dear god have you seen the quality of the cover.  Given five minutes with paint shop pro or photoshop I could come up with something a bit more professional than this.  I'm really pleased that we have a release from the tour but at least some extras would show some real enthusiasm from the band for the project.  No HD is also a big let down.

I'll still buy it but I presume that is what everyone is banking on - the real fans will buy it no matter how poor the product is.  I hate to sound critical but this release looks a little like a lost opportunity.  With all of the original media build up and press conferences etc surely it wouldn't have been that difficult to come up with some extras to go with the DVD?

Bah. I think I'll pass on this one. It just won't be worth the price... whatever that turns out to be.

Why man?
Really there is no reason to buy this shitty release. Real fan or not. I'm almost 20 years fan of this band but I refuse to buy rubbish like this.

What I really would have liked would have been a 3 DVD set of the ukraine gig, a europe gig and a south american gig - it sounds like a lot but to be honest I don't think this would have been this big of a challenge if they had planned it out correctly.  If this was to be their last big tour then finishing up with a DVD set to be proud of would have been something I'd have wanted. 

It starts to make you think about the current situation and makes you wonder just how co-ordinated the whole Queen thing is - I mean do you all remember the tickets situation - totally unreal from the word go.  We then receive a poor reception from the tour website followed up by very poor marketing and promotion.  It starts to feel that no one really cares.  No video for the single - only one single from the album - no wonder it didn't sell that well - only the die hards ever came across it! 

I can appreciate it they are not in it for the money - so why don't they concentrate on what the fans really want?  This DVD release is starting to be the icing on the cake for me - yet again a lost opportunity.  In my book if you aren't going to give something 110% then don't do it.  It simply becomes a compromise and not something to be proud of. 

I can appreciate the band start to go on about all the fans are are take, take take but to be honest they has been a lot of loyalty over recent years and a bit more of thinking about what the fans really want wouldn't go a miss once in a while. 

It start to feel that the band are simply fitting in with an agreed contract with the record company.  Produce 1 more album, at least one single and one DVD from the tour and off you go without any real effort in to producing a quality finished product. 

If really starts to make real fans feel unwanted and simply a cash cow to be milked to death for all it is worth.  I wonder were things will progress from here?

That is one shitty cover. Better than ROTC or Montreal, though.

The No-BluRay and no extras is a true let down. Maybe they WILL release a BluRay version with extras in a few months time?

Of course it will be released on Blu-Ray (with extras) in a few years so that everyone can buy it twice, and the box sets can be delayed again.

Queen motto -

Recycle ... recycle and recycle again.

By the way, I have no interest in QPR live, so I will not buy it. 

However, I am perfectly happy complaining about Queen's horrendous disregard for their most loyal customers, releasing only recycled shit while they delay the box sets and refuse to release any concerts from the 70's.

What is it that people don't understand?  Queen, or any huge band, isn't as interested in their loyal customers as they are their mass market appeal. 

Translation:  If it's only going to sell to select few, cut the production costs and make as much as you can.

They're probably hoping that everyone in the Ukraine will buy it because it says Ukraine, not Queen.  How many Live In Ukraine titles can their be?  (No offfense to Ukraine, but your promotions Dept is kinda weak!)

Oh, and you forgot to use the word "am".  Should've been the 2nd word.

I corrected the error in my original post.  I guess I have become too reliant on word processing programs with spell checkers and grammar checkers.

By the way, your second sentence could be improved.  It should have read:

"It should have been the second word."

Panchgani reply:

There are plenty of bands that cater to their most loyal customers AND the mass market.  It is called "hearing the voice of the customer" and is unfortunately only practiced by a limited number of ethical and quality driven world class companies.

I'm still curious as to how a free AIDS awareness concert is being released, seemingly for commercial gain.

Does anyone know what, if any, share of the profits are going to AIDS charities?

I would assume, minus production costs (DVD authoring, replication, distribution and all inbetween), the profits would most likely go towards the Freddie Mercury Phoenix Trust and/or the 46664 Foundation.
