On April 20, 1992, surviving Queen members Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon performed at Wembley Stadium in London with a long list of guest performers, saluting the late Freddie Mercury.

Eagle Rock Entertainment will release the concert on 3-DVDs or 1 Blu-Ray with upscaled standard definition original material with uncompressed stereo and DTS-HD surround sound for the best possible quality. This release boasts newly remastered sound across both sections of the concert and represents the first time the opening acts’ performances have been made available on DVD or Blu-Ray.

Guests at the show included David Bowie, Gary Cherone, Roger Daltrey, Def Leppard, Joe Elliott, Extreme, Bob Geldof, Guns ‘n’ Roses, James Hetfield, Ian Hunter, Tony Iommi, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Metallica, George Michael, Liza Minnelli, Robert Plant, Mick Ronson, Axl Rose, Seal, Slash, Lisa Stansfield, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Young & Zucchero.

The first half of the show features artists performing some of their biggest hits while the second half includes Queen with special guests performing some of the band’s best loved hits with a short foray into the catalog of David Bowie.

As well as being great entertainment, the concert raised a huge and still growing sum of money for the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity formed at the time by Roger Taylor, Brian May and Queen’s longtime manager Jim Beach whose charter is the relief of suffering from AIDS throughout the world. Profits from this release will be donated by the Mercury Phoenix Trust to AIDS charities around the globe.
