This is a double DVD, containing both Wembley shows from Friday 11th and Saturday 12th July 1986. The first disc contains the Saturday 12th July show, and is a reissue of the 2003 'Live At Wembley Stadium' DVD, which was also previously available as the 1990 video 'Live At Wembley', while the second disc contains the Friday 11th July show, the majority of which was previously unavailable. The DVD was available with or without a double CD of the 12th July show, 'Live At Wembley Stadium', previously available as 'Live At Wembley 1986'. This page includes full details of the 11th July show, while full details of the 12th July show can be found on the original album page.

The Saturday show was to be recorded for the band's archives, and to be broadcast simultaneously on television and radio, and so in preparation for this, the Friday night show was also filmed, as a technical rehearsal for the recording. As such, the Friday show was more limited in terms of the shots available but is still a very good record of an excellent concert.


Both discs feature audio available in PCM Stereo or 5.1 surround sound, and subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish. Both menus feature an animation of the characters from the 'A Kind Of Magic' album sleeve, with a total of 12 edits of 'A Kind Of Magic' from the Saturday show. The same edits appear on the same menus and actions on both discs.

Disc 1 features the full Saturday night concert, with footage identical to the 2003 version. It is divided into 29 chapters (the last one marking the end of the DVD) lasting 1:50:56, and features two additional songs compared to the Friday night concert, namely 'Gimme Some Lovin' and 'Big Spender'. The main menu allows you to play the concert, select a song (which are then spread over four sub-menus) and select audio or subtitles.


Disc 2 features the full Friday night concert, the majority of which was previously unavailable. The 2003 DVD contained seven tracks, which are almost identical but in some places use slightly different shots. The 2003 US CD also contained three of these tracks as a bonus, and a further track was available on the 1986 album 'Live Magic'. On the same day of release (5 September 2011), 'One Vision' was released as a bonus track on the 'A Kind Of Magic' double disc reissue, while 'Tear It Up' and 'A Kind Of Magic' appeared as bonus videos on 'The Works' and 'A Kind Of Magic' iTunes LP's.

As well as the Friday night concert, disc 2 also includes three bonus features, as follows:


1. The Final Tour (11:39)
this features new interviews with Brian, Roger and Gavin Taylor, footage from numerous shows on the tour, backstage footage, and some footage from the aftershow party.
2. The Wembley Weekend (25:50)
this features new interviews with Brian and Roger, excerpts from the two shows, and some backstage footage.
3. Rehearsal Footage (15:07)
this is rehearsal footage of eight tracks, recorded in London in May or June 1986, and is identical to the 2003 DVD.



Compared to the 2003 DVD, this set retains the Saturday concert and Rehearsal footage, and expands the Friday night footage to include the full show. However, it replaces two featurettes with different ones, but loses two additional features, alternate camera angles, and a photo gallery. Unfortunately, there is one glaring error on this set in that both DVD's have an identical main menu which says 'Live At Wembley Stadium 12 July 1986', so once the DVD is loaded you cannot easily distinguish which disc is playing.

This is further complicated because at the start of the show, the band wear almost identical costumes for both shows - Freddie wears his famous yellow jacket, with white trousers and a white T-shirt, while Roger wears a black and white horizontal striped T-shirt and black trousers, and both Brian and John wear white trousers and a white jacket. However, for the Friday show, Brian wears a yellow and white striped T-shirt and John wears a white T-shirt with red diamonds on the front, while for the Saturday show, Brian wears a blue and white striped T-shirt, and John wears a white T-shirt with a red triangle on the front.


The set was also released as a 'Super Deluxe Package' on 21 November 2011, which contained the double CD and double DVD, a photo book, replica concert ticket, VIP passes and laminates, replica soccer scarf, replica Hawaiian shirt, 12" inflatable Freddie, hand drawn map of the 1986 tour by Brian's father Harold, all housed in a 'flight case' 12" x 12" box.

The 2 DVD set only was released in the USA and Canada on 12 March 2013.


One Vision


Chapter 1. Length 5:45.
This track segues into 'Tie Your Mother Down', because Brian starts the guitar intro too early.
It was also included on the 2011 'A Kind Of Magic' double-disc reissue as a bonus track, fading out from around 4:57 to 5:10, length 5:10.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Kind Of Magic' album page.

And in my heart it shows
Look what they've done to my dream
Hey

Tie Your Mother Down


Chapter 2. Length 3:46.
Brian starts the guitar intro too early, before Roger has finished the last drums of 'One Vision', so the two tracks segue together.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Day At The Races' album page.

Lyrics:
Come on
Yeah, yeah
Come on

Get your party gown
Get your pigtail down
Get your heart beating baby
Got my timing right
I got my act all tight
It's gotta be tonight my little schoolbabe
Mamma says you don't
Daddy says you won't
And I'm boiling up inside
No way I'm gonna lose out this time, hey

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Lock your daddy out of doors
I don't need him nosing around
Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight

You're such a dirty louse
Go get out of my house
That's all I ever get from you
And your family ties, in fact I never heard
A single little civil word from you guys
You know I don't give a light
Gonna make out all right
Got a sweetheart hand
Put a stop to all that
Shouting and fighting going on

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
Take your little brother swimming with a brick
That's all right
Tie your mother down, hey
Tie your mother down
She ain't no friend of mine
Ain't no friend of mine

Let's go

Oooh, your mumma and your daddy
Gonna plague me till I die
They don't understand it
I'm just a peace loving guy
Yeah, yeah

Tie your mother down
Tie your mother down
A big, big, big, big, big, big, daddy out of doors
Tie your mother down, yeah
Tie your mother down
Give me all your love tonight

All your love tonight, hey
All your love tonight
All your love tonight, hey
All your love tonight

Shoot out


Freddie: Hello my beauties. Is everybody feeling in a crazy mood? Are you happy? Then take your clothes off.

In The Lap Of The Gods.... Revisited


Chapter 3. Length 2:05.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Sheer Heart Attack' album page.

Lyrics:
It's so easy, but I can't do it
So risky, but I gotta chance it
So funny, but there's nothing to laugh about
My money, that's all you wanna talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh
I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh

It's in the lap of the Gods

Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh

Seven Seas Of Rhye


Chapter 4. Length 1:19.
This track segues into 'Tear It Up'.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Queen II' album page.

Lyrics:
Fear me you Lords and Lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine
The seven seas of rhye, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fear me you lords and privy councillors
I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will command any soul you won't believe my trust
Before me what is mine
The seven seas of rhye, yeah

Sister - I live and lie for you
Mister - do and I'll die
You are mine I possess you
Belong to you forever, ever, ever

Tear It Up


Chapter 5. Length 2:12.
This track segues from 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' and into 'A Kind Of Magic'. It was also included as a bonus video on 'The Works' 2011 iTunes LP, fading in at the start and out at the end, retaining some of the segue, lasting 2:20.
It is debatable where 'Tear It Up' ends and 'A Kind Of Magic' begins, so the above time is based on the division on the album release of the Saturday Night concert.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Works' album page.

Lyrics:
Yeah

We gonna tear it up
Stir it up
Shake it up, baby
Tear it up
Start it up
Make it up as you go along
Tear it up
Break it up
Shake it up - baby
Tear it up
Start it up
Make it up, and you can't go wrong

Give me your mind baby give me your body
Give me some time baby let's have a party
Ain't no time for sleeping baby
Soon it's round your street I'm creeping
You better be ready

Tear it up
Start it up
Shake it up, baby
Tear it up
Start it up
Take it up as you go along
Tear it up
Flare it up
Wake it up, baby
Tear it up
Start it up
Make it up

Oh yeah - baby, baby, baby
Are you ready for love (oh yeah)
Baby, baby, baby, are your ready for me? (oh yeah)
I love you so near, I love you so far
Come on little baby, you're driving me ga ga

A Kind Of Magic


Chapter 6. Length 6:46.
This track is followed by a Freddie Singalong, of length 1:29.
The entire track, including the singalong, was also available on the original 2003 DVD, while 'A Kind Of Magic' alone was also released on the 2003 US CD reissue and as a bonus video on the 2011 iTunes LP of the same name.
It is debatable where 'Tear It Up' ends and 'A Kind Of Magic' begins, so the above time is based on the division on the album release of the Saturday Night concert.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Kind Of Magic' album page, while details of other singalongs can be found on the Live Solos & Improvisations page.

Lyrics:
It's a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic
A kind of magic

One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal
One golden glance of what should be
It's a kind of magic
One flash of light that shows the way
No mortal man can win this day
It's a kind of magic
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time
(It's a kind of magic)

The waiting seems eternity, yeah
The day will dawn of sanity
Is this a kind of magic
It's a kind of magic
There can be only one
(It's a kind of magic)
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done

This flame that burns inside of me
I'm hearing secret harmonies
The bell that rings inside your mind
Is challenging the doors of time, hey

Wow
(It's a kind of magic)
(It's a kind of magic)
A little bit of magic

This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be, will soon be done

This is a kind of magic
There can be only one
This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be done
Done

Hey, everybody
Wow-hoo-hoo
Yeah
Magic, magic, magic, magic
Ha, ha, ha, ha

Magic, ha
Go, go

One more time

This rage that lasts a thousand years
Will soon be, will soon be
Will soon be, will soon be
Will soon be gone
Will soon be done


(Freddie Singalong follows)
Freddie: Fuck you

Under Pressure


Chapter 7. Length 3:27.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Hot Space' album page.

Lyrics:
Um, boom, bah, bay
Um, boom, bah, bay
Dum, dum, bah, bah, boh bah

Pressure pushing down on me
Pushing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

Um, bah, bah, bay
Um, bah, bah, bay
Eh, day, dah
Day, dah

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Day, day, dah
Day, day, day, day, day
OK

Chipping around - I kick my brains around the floor
These are the days, it never rains but it pours
Eh, doh, day, day
Eh, ba, ba, bop
Eh, doh, doh
De, dop

People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, day
People on streets
Eh, dah, dee, dah, dee, dah, dee

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming
Let me out
Pray tomorrow - high, higher, oooh

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking

Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to
Care for the people on the
Edge of the night
And love dares you to
Change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves

Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure


Freddie: I fancy a boogie coming along. Did you like my American accent? It's alright, I've got to get this snot out of my nose before I can sing, fuck anybody who doesn't like it. How about 'Another One Bites The Dust'?

Lyrics:
Hey, let's go
Steve walks wearily down the street
His brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet

Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this?
Are you standing on the edge of your seat
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, sing it


Audience: Another one bites the dust
Hey, let me hear you
Audience: Another one bites the dust
Hey, and another one gone, and another one gone

Without you when you're gone
You took me for everything that I had
And kicked me out on my own

Are you happy, are you satisfied
How long can you stand the heat
Out of the door way the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Another one bites the dust
I need to hear you - do it

I'm standing on my own two feet
Out the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Freddie: Now then, there have been a lot of stories going around that, and a lot of real stupid rumours that Queen are gonna break up. I tell you it's not true, OK. I can tell you straight from my bowels that we're not gonna do it. That is the truth, really. Why should we split up when we have so many people with us, OK? Mind you, as I was saying, we don't, we don't do badly for four ageing Queens, do we? This is a new song, written by Brian, this is called 'Who Wants To Live Forever'

Who Wants To Live Forever


Chapter 9. Length 3:58.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'A Kind Of Magic' album page.

Lyrics:
There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that fills our dreams, yet slips away from us
Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever, ooh, oh, ooh

There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who dares to love forever, ooh, oh, ooh
Oooh, yeah, oooh yeah
Who wants to live forever, oooh-oooh
When love must die

So touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can have forever
And we can have forever
Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway?

I want to break free from your lies
You're so self satisfied I don't need you
I want to break free, yeah

Audience: God knows God knows I want to break free

Audience: I've fallen in love
I've fallen in love for the first time
This time I know it's for real
I've fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I've fallen in love

It's strange but it's true, yeah
I can't get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, baby
Oh how I want to break free
Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on
I can't get used to living without
Living without, living without you by my side
I don't want to live alone, yeah
God knows, got to make it on my own
So baby can't you see, yeah
God knows I want to
God knows I want to
God knows I want to break free, yeah

Is This The World We Created?


Chapter 15. Length 2:36.
This track is also available on the 'Live Magic' album, losing the middle two verses, reducing the length to 1:28.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'The Works' album page.

Lyrics:
Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created, what did we do it for
Is this the world we invaded, against the law
So it seems in the end is this what we're all living for today
The world that we created

You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by
Oooh, oooh, ooh

Is this the world we created, we made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated right to the bone
If there's a God up in the sky looking down
What must he think of what we've done
To the world that he created

(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care


Chapter 16. Length 1:20.
Details of this cover version can be found on the Live Only Songs page.

Lyrics:

Bohemian Rhapsody

Lyrics:
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, Scaramouche will you do the fandango?
Thunderbolts and lightning - very, very frightening me
Gallileo, gallileo
Gallileo, gallileo
Gallileo, figaro - magnifico-o-o-o-oh
I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go, let me go
Will not let you go, let me go
Never, never, never, never, never (never let you go)
Never let me go-o-o-o-oh
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, mama mia, mama mia
Mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oooh, baby, can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Oooh yeah, oooh yeah

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters

Audience: Nothing really matters to me
Nothing really matters to me

Lyrics:
Here we stand, here we fall
History don't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

You don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
Comes to you as to us all
Then it's time for the hammer to fall

Every night, every day
A little piece of you is falling away
Lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles till your body decays

Toe your line and play their game
Till the anaesthetic covers it all
Till one day they call your name
Then it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same (oh no) oh no (oh no)
Lock your door 'cos rain is pouring
Through your window pane (oh no) oh no
Baby now your trouble's all in vain

For he who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
Just want to scream it louder and louder and

What the hell we fighting for?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
Just got time to say your prayers
Then it's time for the hammer to, hammer to fall
Yeah

Yeah
Yeah, yeah
Waiting for the hammer to fall

Yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Waiting for the hammer to, hammer to, hammer to fall

Give it to me one more time

It cries (like a baby)
In a cradle all night
It swings (woo, woo)
It jives (woo, woo)
Shakes all over like a jelly fish
I kinda like it
Crazy little thing called love

There goes my baby
She knows how to rock 'n' roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
And she leaves me in a cool, cool sweat

Gotta be cool, relax, get hip
Get on my tracks
Take a back seat, hitch hike
Take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love

Lyrics:
I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio
(Radio)

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made 'em laugh, you made 'em cry
You made us feel like we could fly
(Radio)

So don't become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know and just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
Had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows, we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
Our music changes through the years
(Radio)

Let's hope you never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around 'cos we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
Had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you

Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga
Radio ga ga

You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
Radio (radio)

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo, radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you, yeah

You, yeah

Lyrics:
Another red letter day
So the pound has dropped and the children are creating
The other half ran away
Taking all the cash and leaving you with the lumber
Got a pain in the chest
Doctors on strike, what you need is a rest
It's so easy love, 'cos you've got friends you can trust

Friends will be friends
When you're in need of love to give you care and attention
Friends will be friends
When you're through with life and all hope is lost
Hold out your hand, friends will be friends right till the end

Now it's a beautiful day
The postman delivered a letter from your lover
Only a phone call away
You tried to track him down but somebody stole his number
As a matter of fact
You're getting used to life without him in your way
It's so easy love, 'cos you got friends you can trust

Friends will be friends
When you're in need of love to give you care and attention
Friends will be friends
When you're through with life and all hope is lost
Hold out your hand
Friends will be friends

Audience: Right till the end

I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand
Kicked in my face
But I've come through

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions of the world

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune
And everything that goes with it, I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before
The whole human race
That I ain't gonna lose
On

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
Ooh, we are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions of the world

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cos we are the champions
Of the world
