Queen

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Barra da Tijuca
January 12, 1985

"25th Anniversary Edition"

This is a merge of four sources to nearly complete the first night in the best possible quality.  The uncut video source is quite a few generations away from the master, so the sound is muffled.  Three other sources fill in the gaps.  Under Pressure has a small cut, but the show is otherwise complete.

I would have shared this along with my version of the Jan 19th show last month, but I was holding out for the Globo TV source (many thanks to Claudio for it!).  I Want To Break Free was also broadcast on TV, but after years of searching I've more or less thrown in the towel.  If it ever turns up, I'll update this thread.

I realize that a fair chunk of this is from a 1985 official release, but the VHS simply can no longer be found for a legitimate purchase, which means Queen Productions won't lose a penny from this.  If people interested in this download were around in the mid-80s, they probably bought the video back then too.  That said, if I'm asked to remove the links by the powers that be, I'll do so without hesitation.

** "Live In Rio" official VHS release > DVD-R (1) > WAV (ImTOO DVD ripper) > FLAC (Frontend level 8)

From TV ?  If Fred has his fake boobs on, we'll have ourselves a winner.  Fingers crossed !

I've been checking a couple of old VHS tapes last weeks and I have a feeling I have seen it on one of those, but I'm not 100% sure about it. However I will check it when I come home from the office

Are you talking about this : Queen Break Free Rio boobies http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuCDqwUOr6U

I do have that show on a vhs tape. But the thing is , the tapes I bought at the time were transfered from NTSC to PAL, so I wonder if there is a great NTSC version around.

Was there a RIO complete in my tapes Pittrek ?

There is SOME Rio in your tapes, it's on one of the tapes which I haven't checked completely, just a few random parts. But I have a strong feeling I've seen exactly the song you posted there

wow: There are really two meanings of official!  that's nice. so this one isn't it?
ok then - it must also be possible:
- I'm a little bit pregnant
- I'm pregnant
This is really something else.
ok - now i understand the difference:-)

Cheers

That's the one.  It's got the logo in the corner, so it's from TV.  Is anyone here actually in contact with him, and can get a lossless copy?  Or is he like Trancer and only sells?

Being a little bit pregnant is the best kind of pregnant.

Let's just take advantage of the fact that there doesn't seem to be anyone doing abortions here these days.

There's a DVD out there called Queen in Rio: Lost footage (or something like this, I don't remember exactly). I own a copy wich is ruined in some parts. The DVD includes both nights concerts, with the exception of the released footage. However, the quality sucks in most parts. That IWTB video featuring Freddie with the fake boobs is also included.

I'm not able to download either of the parts. "Temporarily unavailable" all the time .  By the way, big thanks for the share!

The material from the first night there is from the "master tape", but it's many, many gens from the master.  The version I'm looking for was broadcast on TV, and it's a better-looking/sounding copy.

I've uploaded another link for disc 2.  It, too, says "temporarily unavailable," but hopefully at least one person can manage to grab it and torrent the whole thing.  In that case, please be sure to use the info file that matches the first post in this thread... it went through a couple revisions.

Thanks Bob!

Freddie sounds awesome: Much better than a good chunk of the 1984 gigs!
