Is there a version of The Show Must Go On from this show floating around? I've heard it was dreadful, but curiosity, you know.... I never really liked Elton doing this to be honest. But I'd love to hear it anyway.

Is this the last time where we can see John Deacon live?

Besides of GHIII part of their performance and interviews with Brian and Roger could be seen in the documentary about making of the ballet. Very short snippet from this film is still available on old version of Queen site:

The version on GHIII is recorded live at the Bejart Ballet?? I didn't know that. That's the 1 Queen release I've never bothered with...

Mr. X, buy Greatest Flix III. That's the complete performance. They played only The Show Must Go On. Do a better research before sayin' crap.


Euhm, mister Moreira could I ask you to do better research before posting crap (I haven't spoken the words :P), look here:

BEJART BALLET : BALLET FOR LIFE 90m version (VIDEO EX- / AUDIO EX)
Excellent translation of Queen's music into a ballet with Mozart!
1) It's A Beautiful Day 2) Time 3) Let Me Live 4) Brighton Rock 5) Heaven For Everyone 6) I Was Born To Love You 7) Cosi Fan Tutte 8) A Kind Of Magic 9) Thamos 10) Get Down, Make Love 11) Piano Concerto No. 21 12) You Take My Breath Away 13) Masonic Funeral Music K477 14) Sinfonia Concertante in E Flat Major K364 15) Radio GaGa 16) A Winter's Tale 17) The Millionaire Waltz 18) Brighton Rock 19) Bohemian Rhapsody (there is a 56 second loss of video during this song) 20) I Want To Break Free 21) The Show Must Go On (most probably with ELton John)


Do I hear a "sorry, you're the best" coming on?


Without any 'probably' or 'perhaps' on officially released VHS with Bejart's Ballet The Show Must Go On was performed without Elton, Brian, Roger and John. It was filmed on other night.

No problems!

For official VHS the show was filmed in Laussane, as I remember, but Queen played in Paris.

Taped. I've seen few of these shows in different venues, there wasn't any orchestras around :)
