Queen - Queen Rock Montreal: Wikipedia Album Entry
Queen Rock Montreal is a live album by English band Queen. It was released in 2007 as a double CD / triple vinyl on 28 October in Australia, 29 October in Europe, and 30 October in the US.
It was recorded in Montreal, Quebec, Canada at the Montreal Forum on 24 November and 25 November 1981, ten years to the date before lead singer Freddie Mercury died of complications related to AIDS.
This marks the first official release of the film soundtrack to the concert film We Will Rock You on an audio-only format.
Unlike the original video release of We Will Rock You, which has been re-released as Queen Rock Montreal, the album and CD features the full show (including "Flash" and "The Hero" not on the film) fully remixed.
Before Killer Queen, Freddie remarked to the unusually docile crowd, "If you guys want to move around and shift your asses a little it's OK by us... you can take all your clothes off if you like too, doesn't matter,". Freddie gets notably frustrated with the crowd's lack of enthusiasm and orders them to "Move it, you fuckers, come on!" during Jailhouse Rock. Freddie states on the album, "We must tell you that we are filming this as you know and it's the last show in this series, it sounds like a television game, but forget the cameras, it's just you and us, alright?".
