Queen Rock Montreal

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Essentially, the 2007 release Queen Rock Montreal is the long-delayed official release of the soundtrack to the We Will Rock You concert video, capturing highlights from the group's two-night stand at the Montreal Forum on November 24 and 25, 1981.
