Hope this hasn't been discussed before, but the search button is still not working...

Just found this DVD on my local music store. Simply titled Queen: Live In Rio. The setlist is the same as on VHS.

I'm not sure how official this is. Looks fine to me, but I haven't heard that they were gonna release this one. It says it's released by 'Masterplan' and is copyrighted EMI Globo Brazil. Licenced by Queen Films Ltd.

Anyone know anything about this one?

That is probably a bootleg from the VHS. Queen haven´t released that DVD to any country in the world, and i don´t think Queenproductions would sell the rights back to Rede Globo.

If you have a good condition VHS from that show, then my advice is don´t buy it. But, it´s your call. If you don´t own the VHS, then compare the price and decide for yourself.


Now, if the setlist was the complete show, that would be a different matter!

Take care

Well this stuff from Brazil is impossible to authenticate. Major stores carry them sometimes, and some people swear they're official in some way, but that laws in South America are different and they can basically release whatever they want, etc.

In my experience with 3 Brazilian DVDs.. both volumes of Flix released by DVD Total are VERY good video quality, even a cut above consumer-level laserdisc I'd say. And I have "John Lennon & Yoko Ono on the Mike Douglas Show" 2-DVD set from ST2 Video which is incredibly well-done and high quality.

So, official or not, it might be the best way to get some stuff which will otherwise never come out on DVD.

Strange timing to start hearing about Rio though. Just last month I bought the Japanese version of the laserdisc and authored my own little DVD with PCM sound :-P

If it isn't from the laser disk then does anyone know where I can get a Rio DVD that HAS been transferred from the laser disk edition rather than the VHS?
Same goes for Budapest.

Undertermined, just seen the last part of your post. Any chance of a trade? I have quite a few Queen stuff on DVD.

Are you the one who emailed Kev? If not I guess I'm getting quite popular :-P

I'll get back to you later today about that. Meanwhile here's a 30 second full-quality sample and caps of the crappy menus I made:

Ahh, well it was available in my profile for awhile.

Anyway, to both of you. After careful consideration, due to recent events which were widely publicized.. I'd rather not go into details but let's just say I am a potential father to a deceased personality's child, scrutiny has been intense and may in fact reach governmental levels. Therefore any action on my part which might be conscrewed as copyright violation or any other crime for that matter is rather inadvisable at this time.

I apologize.

It was. I hid it. I just don't feel like trading stuff right now. I have such shitty mail service, and I've just started new medications.
