Queen: Return of the Champions DVD

(Originally posted 2005-11-14.)

As many people know I’ve been a Queen fan since 1974. And us Queen fans all know how we feel about Freddie Mercury’s death and the subsequent retirement of John Deacon. So it was with a mixture of anticipation and trepidation that I saw Queen + Paul Rodgers live in Hyde Park this summer. That was a great show. As these guys are all about 15 years older than me it’s nice to see that in a notoriously youth-oriented business they could still deliver. The parallel with the IT industry is obvious (not that I have to mention it to be able to blog here).:-)

So on my way through Heathrow I picked up the Queen: Return of the Champions DVD. It was all shot at a concert in Sheffield (with the exception of a very nicely done Imagine which was from Hyde Park).

I have to tell you it recreated the buzz I got when QPR strode onto the stage at Hyde Park. But this time I could see much more.

So, for Queen fans who can cope with the idea of Brian and Roger touring with someone other than Freddie, or for Paul Rodgers fans, this is one nice DVD.
