(hennemusic) Queen have released a video of their performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody" as a preview to the November 20 release of "A Night At The Odeon - Hammersmith 1975."

The lead single from their fourth album, "A Night At The Opera", was in the middle of a record-breaking 9-week run at Number One in the UK charts when the Christmas Eve show took place at the famed London venue.

The finale of Queen's 26-date fall UK tour was broadcast live on BBC2-TV and BBC Radio 1. "This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TV the Christmas Show," says guitarist Brian May. "The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully."

The DVD and SD Blu-Ray versions feature a documentary, "Looking Back At The Odeon", which includes a previously unseen interview with May and Roger Taylor by Old Grey Whistle Test host Bob Harris about the Hammersmith show.

The set also presents rare footage from Japan during the group's tour of the Far East. "A Night At The Odeon - Hammersmith 1975" will be available on CD, DVD, SD Blu-Ray, 2 LP vinyl, Super Deluxe Box Set and digitally. Watch the video here.
