English fans at Wembley

British rockers Queen exploded onto the musical scene in the seventies and with the release of “Bohemian Rhapsody” their musical legendry was born.

In July 1986, the rockers with their flamboyant lead singer Freddie Mercury played two nights to sell out crowds at Wembley Stadium in London. It woud be some of the last concerts every played by the foursome in the United Kingdom. Those concerts have never been seen in their entirity, except for the fans who were thre,...until now.

On March 12, a two-disc DVD will commemorate the 25th anniversary of that concert event. The package will include both concerts in full along with some special features amd previously unreleased material. “Queen Live at Wembley Stadium” is being released as a DVD and in digital video formats. Included in the special features is a 2011 interview with Brian May and Roger Taylor reflecting back on the event and not realizing that they were nearing the end as a foursome.

Born Farookh Bulsara in Zanzibar, Tanzania, the man who would become Freddie Mercury met his future bandmates while in college. Mercury died on Nov. 24, 1991, just one day after revealing the secret that he had managed to keep even from his bandmates – that he had contracted AIDS.

Mercury has been gone for over 20 years and the surviving members of the band have never permanently replaced the flamboyant showman; but with video and DVD the music and the show will go on.
