Win Queen’s ‘Hungarian Rhapsody: Live in Budapest’ Blu-ray
Named after a series of pieces by 19th century composer Franz Liszt, 'Hungarian Rhapsody' captures the English rock legends' July 27, 1986 concert in front of 80,000 fans at the Nepstadion in Budapest, Hungary. At the time, Hungary was still under Soviet rule, and this was the first stadium rock concerts by Western band behind the Iron Curtain. Within three years, the Communist Party would begin losing control of Hungary.
In addition to the nearly two-hour show, 'Hungarian Rhapsody' also contains a 27-minute mini-documentary about the period in the band's history, beginning with their triumphant performance at Live Aid the year before. This concert was during the tour in support of 'A Kind of Magic,' which turned out to be their last tour before Freddie Mercury's 1991 death.
