This has been discussed a lot already, but I've just decided to start a separate thread to summarise EVERYTHING what we're going to get this year.

First of all, to summarise all the stuff let's hear everyone's opinions and predictions.

I'll start.

SEPTEMER:
- a new Freddie documentary
- re-released Freddie's solo stuff

OCTOBER:
- Budapest 1986

NOVEMBER:
- Rainbow 1974 (if we're lucky enough)

October and November will most likely have a reissue of Live Killers and the Knebworth show on CD.

Your thoughts?

So this is stuff you would LIKE to be released rather than what you KNOW is going to be released?

I'm surprised you haven't started the same thread before

I doubt Hammersmith will be released this year. It will most likely be included in a box set.

The title says 'for sure'. Almost none of this has any shred of official confirmation...

Any source? It means no quote on some fan forum or e-shop. Only something by Eagle Rock Entertainment.

Rhys Thomas' Freddie documentary is the only confirmed one for this year. Hammersmith 75 is officially confirmed for release but not specifically this year.

Roger has stated for the last couple of years that he'd be releasing either a new album or a retrospective 'best of' but that hasn't seen the light of day as yet despite Roger's claims.

Brian has stated his belief and desire that Budapest will come again in a better, restored format, but nothing yet to say when.

Don't forget that NOTHING was confirmed. Not even the documentary, it was only confirmed that it's going to be shown on TV.

The Budapest humbug seems to me like another cancelled product, which would explain why it's mentioned only on archived pages and not on their current versions.

Hammersmith Odeon was supposed to be released in 2009 if I remember correctly and there are absolutely no official news IF or WHEN it actually WILL be released

To be honest, I think NOTHING will be released from the Queen catalogue (even when the live re-re-releases were originally planned for this year). Simply because Brian and Roger are spending their time with Adam whatshisname.


Also don't forget the band wanted to release the Freddie + MJ collaborations this year, but there is still no official confirmation WHEN/IF this will happen

Everything is still possible. Press releases must be coming out during the next two or three months I think.

The sad thing is that everything also includes nothing happening at all.

Hammersmith 75 was confirmed as a 'forthcoming DVD release' in the press releases for the Queen and AL concerts, so I'm expecting it later this year. As its not that long a concert, it would be nice if there were loads of extras, or even a double disc release with Hanmersmith 79, though I doubt that will happen.

Whilst I don't think it is his own site, the most comprehensive Rhys Thomas states the Freddie thing for 'tv and Blu Ray' in September, and Rhys Thomas himself confirmed on twitter that it is in HD, so the Blu Ray release seems logical.
