Obviously it was because of money... :P

Personally, I think it's because Brian wanted a dvd release to compete with the american WWRY dvd.
The cd/lp release was just a by-product that cost them virtually nothing to make.

I heard that they didn't want to release it before because they (Brian and Rog) thought it was a really crap show. But then, having looked back at it, they were, as Roger said "on fire!" So they fixed up some of Freddie's scratchy vocals and released it on DVD.

Brian had some bad guitar bits like on We Will Rock You(Fast) and Now I'm Here/Dragon Attack where those tracks he blew strings and switched to his old Red Special duplicate that he had from 1975 to July, 1982.
