Recorded in 1981, Queen Rock Montreal captures the world's most iconic rock band at the very peak of their live powers.

Queen Rock Montreal presents Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon at their most exciting and exhilarating. As Brian May puts it, this is Queen "live and dangerous."

Queen were on all-conquering form when they returned to Montreal, Canada for the fourth time in November 1981 to play two huge concerts at the 18,000-seat Forum.

This pair of Montreal concerts marked an historic moment for Queen. After their massive success in the 1970s, the band entered the 80s bigger than ever, with the hugely successful The Game album producing their two biggest ever US singles in Another One Bites The Dust and Crazy Little Thing Called Love (both Billboard No.1's), followed by the UK No.1 single Under Pressure.

Queen's return to Montreal came after almost two years of touring, including their very first tours of South and Central America, which saw the band playing two nights at Sao Paulo's Morumbi Stadium to more than 150,000 devoted fans. As a result, when the band arrived in Canada in November 1981 they were in electrifying form.

"Montreal is one of our favourite cities, it's a great audience there, very full of energy," says Brian May. "We'd played this particular venue, The Forum, several times before, and it was always full of really enthusiastic people giving us a lot of energy back."

From Freddie Mercury's opening cry of "Hello Montreal… long time no see. You wanna get crazy?" through to the thrilling climactic one-two of We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions, the energy rarely lets up - and even then only for signature ballad Love Of My Life.

The powerful vocal acrobatics of Mercury, May's dazzling six-string pyrotechnics, Deacon's rock solid heartbeat bass, Taylor's unstoppable rhythmic display, and not to mention the unique combination of all four voices - Queen Rock Montreal shows the total cohesion and individual strengths of four musicians who were, as Brian May says, "at the top of our game".
