This concert is also available as a double album, and the full lyrics are available on the album page. The DVD content is virtually identical, but the DVD adds two bonus tracks, and the amount of audience noise between songs differs (most noticeably before and after 'Say It's Not True'). The two extra tracks are 'It's A Beautiful Day' which initially opened the concert but now appears over the end credits, with short highlights from the concert, and 'Imagine', which is a separate feature and was recorded in Hyde Park, London, on 15 July 2005. The opening titles of the DVD appear over the first verse of 'Reaching Out'.
The main menu features an edit of 'It's A Beautiful Day', and allows you to play the entire concert, select a song, use the Queen Jukebox (which allows you to select upto 5 tracks to play), play 'Imagine' or change audio. The Jukebox tracks are basically the same as the main concert tracks, but trim some audience noise and in some cases start at slightly different places, to accommodate introductory dialogue.
The audio is available as both stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes. For the surround sound mix, the music and vocals are more prominent through the front speakers than the rear, but there do not seem to be any other changes.
'Bohemian Rhapsody' features footage of Freddie from 'Live At Wembley'. Although some of the footage is the same, here it concentrates exclusively on Freddie, so shots of the audience, Brian and Roger are not present.
