Queen Soar on ‘A Kind of Magic’ in 1986

Clip from Budapest gig marks Freddie Mercury’s 66th birthday

Back on July 27th, 1986, Queen played a massive show in Budapest, Hungary. The gig was just one of many on the Magic Tour, which ended up being Freddie Mercury’s last. Now, Queen are readying a remastered concert film, Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest ’86, featuring “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “I Want to Break Free,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Are the Champions” and more. Here the band digs into “A Kind of Magic” behind a dynamic light show and the unforgettable presence of Mercury, who would have turned 66 today.

Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest ’86 will be shown in theaters with a new mini-documentary starting September 20th. More information can be found here.
