Hollywood Records will on Nov. 9 unveil the first commercial release of Queen's 1982 concert at London's Milton Keynes Bowl, originally broadcast on British television and MTV. "Queen on Fire: Live at the Bowl" will be available for the first time in its entirety on separate double-disc CDs and DVDs, sporting a new stereo mix supervised by the surviving members of the band and engineer Justin Shirley Smith.

At the time of the show, Queen was supporting its then-current album, "Hot Space," from which such tracks as "Under Pressure," "Body Language," "Back Chat" and "Staying Power" are drawn. The 25-track "Live at the Bowl" also includes such Queen standards as "We Will Rock You," "Fat Bottomed Girls," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Another One Bites the Dust" and "We Are the Champions." The set is enriched with a gallery of rare photographs from the tour.

The DVD edition of "Live at the Bowl" includes the full audio program on disc one, in both stereo and DTS 5.1 surround sound mixes. Disc two sports an array of extras, including backstage interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor, an interview with Freddy Mercury filmed during a Munich stop on the Hot Space trek and the aforementioned photo gallery.

Twelve additional performances from the tour have been unearthed, including "Dragon Attack" and "Put out the Fire" from Tokyo and "We Will Rock You" and "God Save the Queen" from Frankfurt, Germany.
