Queen Promo Videos

This page briefly summarises all of Queen's promo videos, giving known details including directors, filming locations and dates, content, and availability of each. All of the videos on this page have been officially released, with the exception of 'We Are The Champions' with Robbie Williams, the Iron Eagle version of 'One Vision', 'Let Me In Your Heart Again' and 'Love Kills', although the last two are available on Queen's official Youtube channel.

In the notes below, a 'standard performance' means that Queen perform the track live, without audience involvement, but the studio version is dubbed over the top.

On the 'Greatest Flix' video, most of the videos segue into each other and so lose elements from the intros and outros, but on 'Greatest Video Hits I' these have largely been rectified.

Brian and Roger also appear very briefly in the 'We Will Rock You' 2003 Pepsi advert with Britney Spears, Beyonce, and Pink, but are only on screen for a couple of seconds, and in the 2005 Comic Relief video, '(Is This The Way To) Amarillo', which has it's own page. A video was also made in 2009 for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' featuring The Muppets, but this does not feature any Queen footage at all.

Filmed at the disused Playhouse Theatre, Charing Cross, London, between 28 February and 3 March 1986.

Available on the videosingle, 'Greatest Flix II', 'Classic Queen', 'Greatest Karaoke Hits' and 'Greatest Video Hits II'.
The ending on 'Greatest Video Hits II' is slightly different, as Freddie is seen outside the theatre, whilst in the original, he was not.
