Back in January the newly remastered 1981 concert movie Queen Rock Montreal screened in over 400 IMAX cinemas around the world.

In just four days the film starring Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon made over $4.1 million worldwide, breaking the record for the biggest IMAX exclusive event opening ever.

Now Queen Rock Montreal is heading to Disney+ with IMAX Enhanced sound powered by DTS.

The film, which includes live performances of classics from Another One Bites the Dust to Bohemian Rhapsody, is available to stream globally on May 15.

Praising the newly restored Queen Rock Montreal, Sir Brian May said earlier this year: “I don’t think we quite realised it at the time, but this film has preserved one of the highest peaks in Queen’s touring life, on stage in the old glory days.

“The director was very much focussed on Freddie, and this now stands as probably the most precious intimate capture ever of Mr Mercury at his full awesome power.”

According to the band: “Queen Rock Montreal captures a pivotal moment in the band’s history. When Queen returned for the fourth time to Montreal’s 18,000-seat Forum in November 1981, where this concert was recorded, it was after a 15-month absence during which they became the biggest band in the world. Fuelled by the release of The Game album, their smash single Under Pressure, and extensive touring, Queen now dominated the charts in every major territory across the globe.

“The two shows that took place in Montreal – November 24 and 25, 1981 – were arranged specifically to set Queen up for another first: shooting a full-length concert film to properly document their live show, highlighting the state-of-the art sound recording. Having spent almost two years on the road, the group was ready for such a challenge and hit Montreal in top form for what would end up being two consecutive sold out, legendary nights.”
