Queen Concert Movie ‘Hungarian Rhapsody’ On The Big Screen For The First Time At A Cinema Near You From 20th September 2012

Queen Concert Movie ‘Hungarian Rhapsody’ On The Big Screen For The First Time At A Cinema Near You From 20th September 2012

Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest ‘86 is a must–see event for Queen fans released in cinemas worldwide from 20 September 2012. The film is expected to play on screens in over 30 territories worldwide. In the UK it will be screened in all the major cities, around 100 cinemas nationwide.

Cinema listings and ticket booking links will be available soon at www.queenonline.com with new venues being added on a regular basis.

Originally filmed in 1986, this momentous concert movie has been re-mastered in high definition and superb 5.1 surround sound for its first–ever cinema screening and opens with a special 25 minute documentary feature following legends of rock, Queen, from just after their historic show–stealing performance at Live Aid on 2 July 1985 through the following year leading up to the concert in Budapest.

As part of the hugely successful 1986 Magic Tour that, poignantly, was the last to be played by Freddie Mercury, Queen were for the first time able to include Hungary on the tour schedule. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this was the largest concert ever staged at the Népstadion, Budapest, and the first Western Rock Concert staged in a stadium behind the then Iron Curtain. It was of such significance to the Hungarian authorities and film industry that a group of the country’s top film cameramen and technicians were brought together to film it for posterity.

Staged for 80,000 ecstatic fans, the concert set includes favourite hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, I Want To Break Free and We Are The Champions. The resulting concert movie has been digitally re-mastered for the big screen and is introduced by a documentary feature that gives the inside track on events leading up to the Budapest concert. Using archive footage from rehearsals, interviews with the band and on the road during the Magic Tour – some of which has never been seen before – this fascinating intro feature has been specially created for the cinema release.

“We’re delighted that Queen fans across the world will finally have the chance to relive this amazing moment for the band. We knew a stadium concert in Budapest was ground–breaking, but hadn’t quite anticipated what a historic night it would turn out to be. The concert looks fantastic on the cinema screen in all its digitally re-mastered glory and the documentary does a great job of setting the scene – it really was an extraordinary time in the band’s history.” Brian May and Roger Taylor

Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest ‘86 – a fantastic opportunity to dress up, sing along and celebrate the magic of Queen at your local cinema.

I think it would be nice to go and watch but a dvd/blu ray is a bit unnecessary.

115 minutes - 25 minute documentary = 90 minutes
And that's the length of Live in Budapest VHS, I guess no complete concert for us :(
Excited to see it on big screen though!

EDIT: Tracklist that I found from http://www.wewillrockyou.co.uk/news/story/hungarian-rhapsody/

TAVASZL SZÈL
ONE VISION
TIE YOUR MOTHER DOWN
IN THE LAP OF THE GODS
SEVEN SEAS OF RHYE
TEAR IT UP
A KIND OF MAGIC
UNDER PRESSURE
WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER
I WANT TO BREAK FREE
NOW I’M HERE
LOVE OF MY LIFE
IS THIS THE WORLD WE CREATED?
TUTTI FRUTTI
BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY
HAMMER TO FALL
CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE
RADIO GA GA
WE WILL ROCK YOU
FRIENDS WILL BE FRIENDS
WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

So no AOBTD or or RnR medley. No guitar solo either? And Tavasl Szel as an intro?

Omg The biggest crap in the world. Don't tell me they will release the same thing they released almost 30 years ago but only in hd. The only excuse i can find for this is "marketing movement" Unlike montreal i am quite sure they do have the full show. Both audio and video. What i think, and i really hope i am right, is that after they release it on cinemas they will include "extra footage on the bd/dvd release" liks "extended version of the concert" to be sure they have nice sell numbers. If that's not the case, in the future instead of having a 70's era concert we may have a new release of the budapest "full concert". Hope that does not happen

1. What makes you think it will be widescreen ? I didn't find such info in the press release.
2. A HD transfer is not immediately a remaster
