Does this all but confirm that Houston will be getting an official release?

At the same time this basically means that we aren't getting the full Houston 1977. I'm betting we are getting some tracks FROM Houston but not the full gig.

BUT it still sounds like an awesome package. Let's hope we feel this way when the full details are announced.

Even without the whole show being a possibility, I'm still pumped. I even want the magazines about it. :D

So am I but it's gonna be costly :lol: I'll gladly pay top dollar for value.

It says "performance...footage". If it were the full gig it likely would've stated such

I bet it will be costly. There goes the books on my wish list that I want, because I plan to save for this. Please no family emergencies this time! :angel:

Mick Wall (a supposedly reputable journalist) states in the Classic Rock article that Queen have opened EVERY show since the NOTW tour up to the current US tour with Adam with the track 'We Will Rock You'. Just 30 seconds of internet browsing could have given him more accurate info than that!!!

To me that says there'll be some live snippets in the documentary but nothing stand-alone, which would suck.

Oh, mama, this is looking good. From what I have read already, I shall be definitely buying this on the day of release - and I no longer say that about every Queen product these days. This could be up there with Rainbow and the Days Of Our Lives documentary for me in regards to recent worthy releases.

I think he was there as a fan. Rhys moved to LA with his family (including his wife, comedian Lucy Montgomery), a few years ago. Unless he's playing it very close to his chest, he's not working on anything for Queen right now, but is busy developing a couple of TV projects. When I spoke to him recently for the final Brian Pern special, he had this to say...

"As far as my ‘other career’ [Rhys directed three award-winning documentaries about the rock band Queen], that was just a one off. I don’t consider myself a real documentary maker."

Didy could you ask Rhys to confirm this or at least comment, personally I hope he is involved :-D

It would be good to know if Rhys did indeed direct this. The QOL announcement confirms that Simon Lupton produced it, but as they as have been involved with Queen projects before both jointly and independently it would be good to know that the Classic Rock reference to Rhys is not just them assuming he is directing it because Simon Lupton is producing.
