Rock Montreal In Japan
Fri, Feb 9th, 2024

The legendary live concert of QUEEN was digitally remastered into the image and sound quality of IMAX.

QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL, the legendary live concert of the band held in Montreal in 1981, will be screened exclusively in IMAX nationwide for 4 days from Feb 22 – 25.

This exhilarating live concert from 1981 is a window into Queen in their most unalloyed form. The film was digitally re-mastered for the first time into the image and sound quality of IMAX, giving audiences a larger-than-life, front-row immersive experience. Rock & roll royalty Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon take to the stage in a historic and exhilarating performance of their greatest hits including “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody To Love,” “Under Pressure,” Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “We Are The Champions,” and additional songs from popular album The Game including “Dragon Attack,” “Play the Game,” and more. “I don’t think we quite realized it at the time, but this film has preserved one of the highest peaks in Queen’s touring life, on stage in the old glory days. The director was very much focused on Freddie, and this now stands as probably the most precious intimate capture ever of Mr. Mercury at his full awesome power,” said Brian May. Added Roger Taylor, “Enjoy. We were young!”

“QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL” captures a pivotal moment in the band’s history. When Queen returned for the fourth time to Montreal’s 18,000-seat Forum in November 1981, where this concert was recorded, it was after a 15-month absence during which they became the biggest band in the world. Fueled by the release of The Game album, their smash single “Under Pressure,” and extensive touring, Queen now dominated the charts in every major territory across the globe. This tour marked the last time Queen played without any extra keyboard player.

The two shows that took place in Montreal – November 24 and 25, 1981 – were arranged specifically to set Queen up for another first: shooting a full-length concert film to properly document their live show, highlighting the state-of-the art sound recording. Having spent almost two years on the road, the group was ready for such a challenge and hit Montreal in top form for what would end up being two consecutives sold out, legendary nights.

“QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL” not only delivers Queen in their rawest form but captures the unparalleled musicianship and vocal talents of Freddie, Brian, Roger and John performing together. Showcasing the group in their pre-Hot Space album era, before keyboards would find a place in the band’s touring line up, this classic concert film shows these talented musicians in total cohesion while finding space to demonstrate their individual strengths.

“QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL” will be screened at 50 IMAX cinemas nationwide from February 22 – 25 for 4 days. For tickets, please check each cinema’s site.
