25 October 1986 – “Live At Wembley” premiered on Channel Four (UK) and private radio stations simultaneously.

One year after their show-stealing Live Aid performance at Wembley, Queen returned to the venue to perform two sold-out shows to 150,000 fans in only two nights (July 11-12, 1986). The band broke all previous attendance records during their ‘Magic’ Tour.

An even bigger stage was specially designed for the two Wembley Stadium shows. But the crew hit some roadblock upon discovering the architect’s plans for the stadium were wrong (they were four feet out). The stage had to be redesigned, and it was finally finished just before soundcheck was due to start.

“The Wembley concerts in 1986 were the pinnacle for us,” said Brian May. “We were at our height band-wise, and Freddie had developed this phenomenal way of dealing with stadium audiences. Being back home in London playing two sell-out nights was such a big, big occasion for us. None of us realized that this would be almost the last time we played together.”

In fact, ‘Magic’ would sadly be the bands final tour with the legendary Freddie Mercury. The two Wembley concerts stand as a fitting testament to one of rock’s greatest frontman at the height of his powers.

“You know something? There’s been a lot of rumours lately, about a certain band called Queen. The rumours are that we’re going to split up, what do you think?
They’re talking from here! My apologies, but I say what I want. You can forget those rumours, we’re going to stay together until we f***ing will die, I’m sure of it! Also, I suppose we’re not, we’re not bad for four aging Queens, are we, really, what do you think?”
