Queen are set to reissue the concert film Queen Rock Montreal in a variety of physical formats.

Queen Rock Montreal captures the iconic rock band at the very peak of their live powers. Recorded in 1981 and recently released as a record-breaking digitally restored IMAX concert film, it will be released as both double Blu-Ray and double 4K Ultra High Definition packages, plus double CD and triple vinyl packages.

Both packages will be out on May 10. The concert film also is set for worldwide release on the same day.

Queen Rock Montreal presents Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon at their most exciting and exhilarating form. As May puts it, this is Queen “live and dangerous.” Queen were in all-conquering form when they returned to Montreal, Canada, for the fourth time in November 1981 to play two huge concerts at the 18,000-seat Forum.

Queen Rock Montreal features a raw version of the band who had released Bohemian Rhapsody half a decade earlier, showcasing their unparalleled musicianship, soaring vocal power and unstoppable live energy. “There’s no one on the stage apart from us,” says May.

Says Taylor, “It’s fascinating to now realize how free we were on stage in 1981. It’s a four-piece, just the four of us in Queen, and to see Freddie. It’s like being on stage with the band because the cameras are very high quality for the time. I’ve never seen anything that makes you feel quite so involved with the performance.”

Queen Rock Montreal Double CD/Triple vinyl LP (Universal Music) consists of 28 tracks.
