New Queen Live CD/DVD/Deluxe Due For Holidays
Queen has announced another release of a live Deluxe Edition/CD/DVD, and for big time fans, it is a familiar recording. A Night at the Odeon - Hammersmith 1975 has floated around in various forms as a bootleg since its recording 40 years ago.
Last week in the UK, the band showed the film footage for the first time publicly...and legally. It will be available for sale in the US for the holidays. The reason behind the release, aside from the obvious holiday shopping season grab, is to commemorate the 40th anniversary of "Bohemian Rhapsody" (originally on A Night at the Opera) and the first time it was played live. The performance took place on Christmas Eve 1975, and was originally broadcast on BBC. Guitarist Brian May gave an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine at the film's premiere.

The setlist is one that any true Queen fan will love to find in their stocking this year:
"Now I'm Here"
"White Queen (As It Began)"
"The March of the Black Queen"
"Bohemian Rhapsody (Reprise)"
"Bring Back That Leroy Brown"
