Queen at Wembley is a video recorded at the original Wembley Stadium, London, England on Saturday 12 July 1986 during Queen's Magic Tour and later debuted as a mono ‘The Tube Special’ on TV with a simultaneous stereo radio broadcast so that viewers had the option to mute their televisions; play the audio on a nearby radio and enjoy “the world’s first ever stereo simulcast” in a similar way that previous live (as opposed to, in this case, pre-recorded) classical performances had sometimes been offered. It was first released in December 1990 as an edited VHS (missing 9 songs), then as an audio CD in 1992, followed by a DVD release as Queen: Live at Wembley Stadium (in its entirety) to coincide with the CD rerelease in 2003. The DVD has gone five times platinum in the United States, four times platinum in the United Kingdom, and achieved multi platinum status around the world. On 5 September 2011, the 25th Anniversary Edition of the concert was released as a standard 2-DVD set and a deluxe 2-DVD and 2-CD set. Eagle Rock Entertainment released a 25th Anniversary Edition in the USA and Canada on 12 March 2013.[1]
