The iconic Queen frontman Freddie Mercury would have turned 66 this month, so to celebrate, we're posting this trailer of the new Queen concert documentary hitting U.S. theaters today: Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest '86. The documentary chronicles Queen's journey from their epic performance at Live Aid in 1985, through their subsequent Magic Tour, which ended with the first Western stadium rock concert staged in Budapest, which at the time lay behind the Iron Curtain. Originally filmed on July 27, 1986, the Queen concert film has been re-mastered for digital cinema in high definition with 5.1 surround sound and features many of the band’s most popular tracks, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “I Want to Break Free,” and “We Are the Champions.” It's also significant because it was the last time Queen toured with gay lead singer Freddie Mercury before his death and it was also the largest stadium concert ever staged at the Népstadion in Budapest, in front of 80,000 ecstatic fans — three years before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
