There are pirate DVDs of these shows taken from VHS.

Better to find DVDs converted from Laser Discs. If the convertion was done by professional people quality will be not much worse then on the officilal DVDs. Good luck!

Why not? It's not worse than Wembley, especially setlist wise and considering the shape of Freddie's voice.

The way it's shot- I think it is actually worse than Wembley... And it's 1985- WORKS tour era- which IMO was imply terrible. The drum sound- yuck!!

I was talking about the quality of the performance, which is definately not as bad as some people say...

But I agree with you that it was filmed in a quite bad way.

it wasn't THAT bad- I can agree, but let's face it- not their best. far from it. That would be probably the least favourite choice for me for future DVD Collection release...

Much better to get the laserdisc version of both, if you can find a laserdisc player.

Hopefully Live in Budapest will be released with much bonus material.

I have the concert on VHS and the pirate dvd aswell. I really enjoy these bits with each of the band members, but these are too short. I think they have taped more material, most of it should be released.

Rio has its good moments, but overall, the 84-85 performances were pretty stale. The first few 84 shows are good and strong, but they started hating each other quickly again. There are a couple good shows in Japan 85 as well, but these shows still pale in comparison to their 75-78 golden era.

I'd welcome a DVD release of Rio, but it's probably the last thing on my QP want list.

Which is why it's guaranteed to be released a few decades before the box set(s)...

What I've heard of Budapest is great stuff. Visually it's bound to be better as well because it was actually *filmed* (from what I've seen/heard anyway) as opposed to being shot on videotape.
Didn't Brian May bitch about the people who have the rights to the concert video?

I'd like to see Budapest. Fred's voice sounds great on it- much better than at Wembley and The Works tour would be good too. I disagree completely with a reviewer who said it was a bad tour- rubbish. They went back and did Great King Rat etc. and I liked their policy of covering every album- they should have done that in '86.

No, the little films should be on an extra disc.
