Nieuwe Releases

day’s of our lives


days of our lives

EINDELIJK weer een nieuwe DVD release, na de her release van Wembley 1986 komt op 28 november de DVD Days of our Lives.

De documentaire bevat beelden die nog nooit te zien zijn geweest met zeldzame interviews, met alle nodige strubbelingen, opstakels, de ruzies en alles wat men meemaakte tijdens de aanloop naar hun doorbraak en de weg erna.

Deze documentaire was al uitgezonden op 29 en 30 mei 2011 op BBC 2 met als aansluiting de beroemde Hammersmith 1975 concert.

In deze documentaire kijken Brian May en Roger Taylor terug op de afgelopen 40 jaar, de producers kregen een unieke kijk achter de schermen en vonden per ongeluk ook nog even Queen’s aller eerste tv optreden waarvan men dacht dat deze gewist was terug. Alle studioalbums, concerten, tournee’s enz. komen aanbod en is geproduceerd door Rhys Thomas en Simon Lupton. Het gebeuren duurt 2 uur en zal naast DVD ook uitkomen op Blu-Ray met veel extra’s.

Ook zal de documentaire in Nederland en België op tv komen, op 17 november is België het eerst aan beurt (Canvas), en op 26 November dan op Nederland 3

Hier verdere informatie zoals deze op de site van de BBC 2 stond:

Episode 1:

In 1971, four university students got together to form a band. Since then, that certain band called Queen have released 26 albums and sold over 300 million records worldwide. The popularity of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon is stronger than ever. Their story is a remarkable one, a narrative that covers early struggles, huge obstacles, success, arguments, breakups, triumph, tragedy and an enduring legacy – all against a backdrop of brilliant music and stunning live performances from every corner of the globe.

In this film, for the first time, it is the band that tells their story. Guiding us through an extensive archive full of hitherto unseen footage, the documentary reveals how four strong-minded individuals, all capable of writing massive hit songs, worked together so successfully for four decades. Queen never did anything by halves – meaning their highs were massive, but their lows catastrophic. It is a compelling story told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humour and painful honesty.

Episode 2:

The story of British rock band Queen, formed in 1971. The second half of this documentary sees Queen at the peak of their powers. With the ultimate showman in Freddie Mercury and a string of rock anthems to their name, Queen smashed attendance records with a series of stadium shows across South America.

But the band quickly learned that if reaching the top is tough, staying there is the biggest challenge of all. With a loss of focus in the studio, the decline in popularity in North America, increasing internal tension and a desire to pursue solo projects, it seemed as if the band had had its day. Then came the performance from Mercury at Live Aid, and their record breaking Magic tour in 1986. Queen were propelled back amongst the very best. Re-juvinated, the world was once again at their feet, but then tragedy struck and threatened to tear the band apart.

Featuring musical performances, previously unseen and rare footage, and intimate interviews.
