Sorry for the nooby question, but my Dad is finally upgrading our surround sound system (speakers, amp + bluray player). We have a few Pink Floyd DVD's that we both like, but Dad is a much bigger fan of Queen than myself.

What concert films should I look at getting?

There's not really many Queen official live DVDs out there - Montreal '81 (DVD and Blu-ray) , Milton Keynes '82 and Wembley '86.....or the Queen+ stuff. with Paul Rodgers.  As for promo clips, it's pretty much the same - just Greatest Hits 1 and 2.  For picture quality and nice sound, the best of the live ones is Montreal '81 (Blu), although for a newer fan, Wembley '86 would have better-known stuff on it.  After that - check the "announce" section and download a few of the non-offical ones to get a fuller view of Queen's live prowess - the early 70s ones (Rainbow/Hammersmith) are great, as are Earls Court and Houston '77.

"Rock Montreal" looks and sounds stunning. Plus it's got enough of the hits there to be of interest for a casual viewer.

in terms of video and audio quality, Queen Rocks Montreal is superior - followed by Ukraine and Sheffield.

Wembley and Milton Keynes are great, but fall short in the production.
