Widely considered to be one of Queen's finest live performances, this concert is from the band's 1986 Magic Tour. Regenerated and reinvigorated by their triumph at Live Aid almost exactly a year earlier, the band were on a 26-date tour of the UK and Europe and after a month out of the country returned home to London to play two defining concerts at the "place of champions," Wembley Stadium.

These were to be Queen's biggest dates ever - the biggest stage, the biggest lighting rig, the biggest screen that not only Queen had performed with, but also that Wembley Stadium had ever seen. Filming it involved 15 cameras and a helicopter to capture aerial shots.

Guitarist/songwriter Brian May said of the concert, "The Wembley concerts in 1986 were the pinnacle for us. We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None of us realized that this would be almost the last time we played together." The band played only two more UK concert dates together.
