I had a question about the press release about the upcoming Queen+PR live Japan DVD on Brian May's site.

It was the last sentence that got my attention:

" The DVD will be released for the first time in Japan prior to any other countries."

Does this mean it will (at least eventually) be released in other countries after it comes out in Japan?

Another blurb on Brian's site mentions a UK date and US "to be announced."

Well, since the Japanese import will cost about 60/65 euro's (ditto in dollars)... that's a realy good question!

It says on Brians site today that it was a mistake and that it will only be released in Japan.

On QOL they announce the Japanese DVD - NTSC and region 2 with Japanese subtitles. This is not a UK release becaause it's NTSC. The region is the same for Europe and Japan. I don't believe they will release a PAL version for the UK and a NTSC/region 1 version for the USA. I think they just sell the Japanese version worldwide via QOL.

On HMV Japan the DVD costs 4420 Yen if you buy two, that's 30,80 Euros and I pay 2200 Yen (15,40 Euro) shipping for 4 DVDs, I buy the 2 Rock Legend DVDs, too. That's not cheap but also not over-expensive for a Japanese product considering it's a double DVD.


oops, I did not see your message in time, Pieter:)


I do not want any google ads here.

I did the same thing.

I bought the Queen Super Live, Queen Final Live in Japan and Queen Under Review. Total was 11,118 Yen which is roughly $110 Canadian. Which is a fantastic price considering I would have to pay about $30-$50 more if I ordered through my local stores.

Can't wait!

I'd go with HMV Japan. It may still be cheaper than waiting on Ebay.

hmv.co.jp seems to be on the mark. I had am email from them when I logged on this morning saying that mine had already been posted to the UK. I guess they sent all the pre-orders out a the same time, give or take a few hours. Just have to see how long the actual delivery takes but it's probably a good way to go if you want it quick.

I think it's region-free coding, so it should work on US DVD players....

Everything I've seen so far says it's region 2, not region free.

What does it mean by:

Regional Encoding: ALL

Is that something different?

No that would mean Regio 0: region-free.
