A very interesting show. The band seems to be enjoying it but Freddie seems to be
pissed at the audience. They improvise a bit of Under Pressure during Now I'm Here
and something what sounds like Back Chat during the intro to Keep Yourself Alive.
Brian breaks a string during the last seconds of Killer Queen and it takes him a bit
till he's able to continue normally. He also forgot to play his solo during Bohemian
Rhapsody, and after he remembered he is supposed to be playing, he plays something
very, very different (but also very interesting).

There are several versions of this concert available. The most famous and probably
most spread version is from Digital Dreams (hopefully I remember the name correctly),
this version has DTS sound, but it looks and sounds pretty bad (sorry). It's too
dark to see anything, has very small bitrate and a huge amount of solarization.
The sound is far from perfect too, it sounds like it went through some hiss or
noise reduction.

Fortunately other copies have surfaced over the years. Two VHS tapes were "leaked"
by Ghostwithasmile, one of them was sent to me, I transferred it and shared it
on Queenzone a few years back. This new copy looks and sounds even better. I received
it as one lossless avi file, I cleaned up most of the video noise in NeatVideo and authored
it to DVD. The image is still not perfect, and it has MANY problems in the dark parts,
but it's the best I have seen so far. If somebody has a better copy please feel free
to share it :-)

Technical details :

Main feature :

Length : 01:32:48
Resolution : PAL 720x576
Framerate : 25fps
AVG bitrate : 8Mbps

Audio : LPCM 2.0 48kHz

DVD contains
- full concert
- soundcheck (1 min)

Please note - this is a DVD9, you will need a dual layer DVD if you want to burn it,
or you will need to use some program like DVDShrink to be able to shrink it for a
normal single layer DVD.

Also, if you decide to distribute this outside Queenzone, distribute the DVD "as is"
including this text file. Don't re-encode it, don't put it on youtube and monetize it,
don't use it as a basis for a commercial bootleg. And please don't re-encode it,
if somebody is interested in a "1 file" version, an mkv version will be shared on
request.

Thanks to both of you! :)
Are we allowed to put it on YouTube WITHOUT monetizing it? I doubt I'll get around to it, but just in case? :)

Thanks Peter. Nice to see you authored as a DVD9.
I can just burn that straight to a bluray disc!

If folks who want an mkv and have the software/patience, they could download this, make a disc image out of it with "imgburn" (free), mount the disc image with "Free ISO mount" (again free!) and then open it with "makemkv" (FREE!!) and create some mkv's :)
