Gig Of The Week: Queen

Rock Montreal [1981, 1h]
~ watch now ~

In November 1981, with Under Pressure topping the charts in the UK, Queen arrived in Montreal following dates in Japan and their record-breaking tour of Latin America. It was to be the only concert by Queen that was ever shot on film. Always a great live band, with arguably the greatest frontman of all time in Freddie Mercury, they excelled themselves with the cameras rolling.

Originally released on video as We Will Rock You - this 2007 digitally remastered version has everything you’d want from Queen in spades. Featuring the vast majority of Queen’s crowning glories (ho ho ho), Rock Montreal includes everything from We Will Rock Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust through to We Are The Champions.

Think of that old Greatest Hits album that came out donkey's years ago - It’s that essentially - but with the added dose of stunning visuals, the band’s incredible stage presence and an hour’s worth of some of the most epic rock music ever performed.

The Band: Freddie Mecury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon.
