So that's the xmas Queen product ... Wembley for the fifth time?

I honestly thought they could do better.

Excellent.
2 months after I bought the 2DVD + 2CD set they are releasing Wembley again.
Hooray !

Well I bought Wembley on MC, VHS, CD in 1992, CD in 2001, CD in 2003, DVD in 2003, CD+DVD in 2011 (October). So naturally I MUST buy it also in 2011 (November), right ?

Sorry, I'll keep my money for something at least interesting

agree - actually a rare US Queen release I won't be buying...

I put the 2011 Wembley CDs (from Amazon.co.uk) up against the 2003 remaster CDs, and heard no difference at all...

Didn't compare the waveforms, but there was little if any sonic improvement for this last release.  Sooo wanted a new mix a la Montreal.  Could have been brilliant.

Am I the only one who thinks the price of this release is ridiculous? Even the most elaborate Pink Floyd-re-release is significantly cheaper than this item. And this one doesn't even have any bonus content in terms of sound or vision the regular release doesn't!

over 200 euros for a fucking 2xDVD + 2x CD set which sells for 15 euros in the Netherlands. But wait - there's more. An inflatable Freddy-doll, a hawaiian shirt and a hand-drawn map by Brian's dad. Don't care, not gonna buy it.

Hmmm... i don't see any mention of an inflatable doll...

With that price they oughta at least include all FOUR members' characters....

While I've always loved the artwork...

i think the pricing range is out of my league...

toss in a replica of Freddie's Mighty Mouse T Shirt and John's horrible 80's Euro Jeans...and i might consider it.

but.... $279.01.... you're out of your f'ing mind...

why...why... i'd have to give up beer..... FOR A MONTH!!!

:)

This is extremely ridiculous and over-prized. I´d like to listen to some official word trying to explain why QPL/Universal think this boxset has to be much more expensive than any of the Pink Floyd boxsets, for instance.

My frustration with QPL has become pity. I feel sorry for them, really. They´re nowadays totally out of place in the music industry. Everytime they try doing one step forward, in the end it´s three steps back !!

The price is very high.

Does anyone know how much there will be made?
