From Musictap:

"Hollywood Records announces two interesting DVD titles for September 13,
with one from Jesse McCartney and another from Queen. The projects are
title-less for now."

I imagine this title is probably the same one as the Queen+Paul Rodgers title named for approximately the same timeframe.
If not, perhaps its Greatest Video Hits 3.
Hopefully we get both a Q+PR live DVD AND GVH3 before Christmas, but Im not holding my breath :)

My question:

Why release a show from a tour that you are just now bringing to the US? Why would Hollywood release a Q+PR DVD in order to promote a Q+PR tour? Makes no sense.

On the other hand, wouldn't it make sense to release GVH III to capitalise on the interest generated by the tour? It makes sense to me, certainly more than putting out a live dvd.

I'd imagine it'd be something like this:

It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me. It would be great if that is what they do, but I don't see the rationale from an economic perspective.

Then again, I never see the economic rationale with Hollywood...

A coupla issues back, Ice Magazine wrote that the 12/26/79 gig was being released direct from the master tapes. Outside of that article I haven't heard anything else about this.

There is only a limited number of shows the band can perform (and they do have to pay a lot of people wages for it..). They aren't going to tour in the States enough to satisfy all the fans, but if they release the show on a dvd, they can reach a lot bigger audience.

What if there is no "tour"? Do you see them doing another thirty dates in the states, or do you think they will play a handful of concerts on the east coast?

In the autumn the main (ie European) tour will be over, and they are going to release the cd/dvd to cash in from those places that weren't included on the schedule. Sadly that is going to include most of the USA as well.

I stand corrected.

According to Brian's reply to a letter on the subject, it is a DVD of the current tour.

Why does everyone keep saying they wish its going to be GVH3. If this was the case, why would they only be releasing it in America?

I agree with Michael Allred - if you like the DVD - go to the concert. Watching a DVD is nothing compared to seeing a live performance.

For example I have commented that the We Will Rock You Musical is crap based on my viewing of the video at the Breakthru convention - only to be repeatedly told that I would like it if I saw it live.

If DVD's and videos were the be all and end all of entertainment, there would be no market for live performances.

Everyone wants GH3 for Innuendo, IGSM, Headlong, and TATDOOL videos....which have never been avalible to us.

I just ordered a bootleg vhs off some pirate ebayer just so I can see Headlong and IGSM videos.....

It will have to hold me over until we get GH3.

Nothing about Innuendo made even a ripple in the water in the USA. In March 1992, when BoRhap was put in Waynes World.... all focus shifted to Queen's 1970's work.

Innuendo was for the most part a very English sounding album. In the USA, thats a term heard in many music schools, for a dark, moody sounding album.

Damn, I love Innuendo.

Who's claiming the dvds are? They are just a supplement (and occasionally vice versa) to the concerts, and they have the potential to reach those who couldn't go to the actual concerts.

There are always going to be people who can't go to the concerts for one reason or another... Too little money, too young, not able to travel 2,000 miles across the country etc.

Maybe they're just trying to find any old excuse to bump the GVH3 another year forward?

It's cheaper to produce a new concert than several different music video clips, and as long as they haven't released "all" the music videos on dvd, they can still claim to the general public that the band isn't finished. :P

What's this DVD then?

Yes. We are planning to release a live DVD of the current show.
