Queen Releasing Classic 1975 Concert 'A Night At The Odeon': Queen News

On Tuesday Queen Releasing Classic 1975 Concert 'A Night At The Odeon' was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Queen will release "A Night At The Odeon - Hammersmith 1975" in multiple formats (CD, DVD, SD Blu-Ray, 2 LP vinyl, Super Deluxe Box Set and digitally) on November 20.

The package captures the band's Christmas Eve concert at the famed London venue - the Hammersmith Odeon (now known as the Eventim Apollo) - a month after the release of their fourth album, "A Night At The Opera."

After playing five shows at Hammersmith earlier in the month, Queen returned for the finale of a 26-date fall UK tour that 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 concert took place while the album's lead single, "Bohemian Rhapsody", was in the middle of its record-breaking 9-week run at Number One in the UK charts. Read more including the tracklisting and watch the preview video - here.
