Live At Wembley DVD 'Friday Night'

Hello Chums,

Now please bear in mind before you reply that up until very recently I was offline for nearly four years. I've noticed from YouTube that the whole of the Friday Wembley Stadium show (the one I went to) is available. I also see from Amazon UK that there is a 25th Anniversary version of the DVD (plus 2 CDs) that was apparently released in 2011. Unfortunately, the reviews for this on Amazon are exactly the same as the ones for the original version. Does the 2011 version have the complete Friday show, or has the YouTube poster got it from somewhere else?. Thanks in advance.

It does! But it doesn't have the Queen Cam feature. So it is definitely worth having both DVD editions.

The Friday show is great, by the way.

As Simon said, the most recent release includes the Friday show.

You definitely picked the wrong night to go along, it was chucking it down on the Friday! :)

I wouldn't go as far as 'chucking it down'. Yes, it rained, but it was quite nice. The clips on the first Wembley DVD make it look worse than it was. Thanks both for your replies.

Well, memory is the one thing we can successfully manipulate so it serves our needs :P .

Haven't been there and cannot really argue, I do know though that sometimes, rain on film looks like more than it actually feels. And why concentrate on raindrops touching you, when Freddie is strutting his stuff right in front of you ;).

I was there, and I have no recollection of it raining at all despite the footage. I remember it raining on the Thursday night, but that's because we were sleeping in the turnstyles, having been there since the morning.
