Which queen concert dvd (in store) is the best so far ? You have to choose between WWRY, On Fire and Wembley. So no other dvd's like earls court or Hammy, because they aren't in store.

My vote would be for for On Fire. The milton keynes concert is really amazing. Great setlist (better than WWRY and Wembley. This is much more variated with the hot space stuff) , great vocals (espially Freddie is much better than at Wembley) and great audience (much better than for the WWRY dvd). The audience at Wembley is also great, i've to admit that. This dvd also has the best sound of the 3 dvd's I think. On fire has some nice extra's, although Vienna is a bit dissapointing. I'm not saying that WWRY and Wembley are bad. On the other hand : these dvd's are also fantastic. WWRY had a fantastic sound with good tuning of your sound system. Wembley is perhaps the most perfect queen concert (not the best)and it had great extra's and the camera positions are much better than on fire.

Summarized : I like WWRY, on fire and Wembley, but I love on fire the most !!!!!!!!!

Since I all I have right now is Wembley, I'd have to say Wembley :)

I am on the fence for this one. Wembely has a great set list and has a stunning epic feel but Milton Keynes is a much tighter Queen show, with the Hot Space songs sounding stunningly fresh and lively. Personally I think Milton Keynes gets my vote just because it shows Queen doing an amazing show even though at the time their popularity was suffering.

I can hardly choose between WWRY (Indeed Dust Biter, there's a DVD of Montreal '81) and Live At The Bowl. The quality of LATB is better, but I think Queen were in a superb shape during the Montreal gig. So I say WWRY.

LAW is too much "I Want To Break Free" and "Radio Ga Ga"


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Wemberley - possibly Queen's finest hour and a bit.

We Will Rock You. "Somebody to Love" is just amazing on that one.

I love the "Bowl" but really it has to be the Live Aid set even if the excellent Smith n' Jones intro was left out! The Live Aid performance was history in the making (easy looking back now) and given the number of TV sets tuned into it at the time, legendary - 20 small minutes and 1 big performance which revolutionised the band!

I think audience makes all the difference in a gig. WWRY, you could hear a pin drop throughout. I hate them Quebecians. Wembley is great but On Fire is just astounding. I've got nothing but praise for On Fire.

I have we will rock you on dvd, released in 1998 by...um let me get the dvd box....by mobilevision, a division of Pioneer. No bells and whistles or anything just the concert. BTW the concert isnt that good because of the dubbing. Seeing Freddie singing when his mouth is closing takes away from the experience. BTW they need to release a dvd from the 70's. I'd love tho see the Live at the Rainbow concert film officilly released on dvd, as the live concert film, who cares if they dont have the entire concert, I love Jail House rock on that one and in the lap of the gods. I love the entire concert. Houston 77 would be super tight too. I loved Freddie's voice before he started singing lower, even though it was still good.

On Fire

Just seems a better set list, and maybe the stage was too larg at Wembley to get the whole atmosphere, whereas the stage at Milton Keynes was more compact.

Firstly, is We Will Rock You available for purchase? Secondly, I think Wembley is better than On Fire because of the sheer power of the show. I do like PTG and STL on On Fire and I wish Queen had kept those songs for the magic Tour but Hammer To Fall, Radio Ga Ga and One Vision add something special to the Wembley one.

Right now On Fire, Live at The Bowl is my favorite, Wembley as a close second.

I don't have WWRY on DVD though (I do have it on VHS). Thye say the DTS DVD is great.
