5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Must have for Any Queen Fan March 11 2005
Format:DVD
My husband is a Freddie Mercury and Queen fanatic. This in his opinion and mine is the best concert we have seen belonging to Queen. Their stage performance especially Freddies is out of this world, and the concert songs A1, theres a grest twist to the song 'Fat Bottomed Girls" but you'll have to get the DVD and find out for yourself what it is.
If you love Queen you got to have this DVD. Hope this helps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory for any Queen fan March 14 2005
Format:DVD
This is an excellent companion to the (even better) Queen "Live at Wembley" DVD. Anyone who is a Queen fan should add this to their collection. Not the ultimate concert footage (especially the bonus Vienna concert) but the Sound quality (DTS 5.1) is first rate. Turn up the volume, dim the lights & be amazed at just how good Queen were as a live act.
So four stars then, mainly because I own "Live at Wembley" which is Five stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen - A Performance With Something To Prove. Sept. 15 2012
Format:DVD
By the time QUEEN headed out on the Hot Space Tour they could already feel the backlash due to the direction of the recording. QUEEN were going to show the world that they still could rock! The songs in the setlist have a certain type of attack to them, very pleasing to the bands rock base. Freddie sings with amazing power, just listen to his vocal of Under Pressure as he hits all the high notes and doesn't have to sing in a lower key as he would in later tours. This dvd is great document that shows QUEEN at the peak of their powers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome concert Oct. 16 2004
By Michael Allred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Here are the full details for this DVD from the press release:Filmed by Gavin Taylor, and only ever seen in an edited version on Channel 4's The Tube, this release has the concert restored to its original full length, amounting to an additional 47 minutes of previously unseen footage. Not released on video, "Queen On Fire - Live At The Bowl", marks the first time a recording of this concert has been available to own.As to be expected from Queen, the release comes only after extensive restoration to the original footage and sound. Audio producers Justin Shirley-Smith and Kris Fredriksson returned to the original 24 track analogue recording and created brand new PCM stereo and DTS 5.1 surround sound mixes. As with all previous releases in the Queen DVD Collection, "Queen On Fire -Live At The Bowl" comes with a second disc full of bonus features. The 75 minutes of extras include behind the scenes footage of preparations for the concert, together with unseen material from interviews filmed on the day with Brian May and Roger Taylor. Further interview footage shot in Munich during the European leg of this tour shows Freddie, Brian and Roger discussing the tour, the then current Hot Space album, as well as discussing the 10 year longevity of the band.In addition, disc two provides over 35 minutes of bonus live performance from the same year, filmed at the Vienna Stadthalle in May and the final show of the tour at Tokyo's Seibu Stadium in November.The disc also features a photo gallery which raids the Queen photo archive in a stunning collection of rare and previously unseen shots from the 1982 tour that took the band across Europe, the US and Japan. In a real treat for Queen collectors, the gallery is displayed to a recording of the band performing "Calling All Girls" at that year's Tokyo concert, the very first time this track has been made available.Track listing:1- Flash2- The Hero3- We Will Rock You (fast)4- Action This Day5- Play the Game6- Staying Power7- Somebody To Love8- Now I'm Here9- Dragon Attack10- Love of my Life11- Save Me12- Back Chat13- Get Down Make Love14- Guitar Solo15- Drum Solo16- Under Pressure17- Fat Bottomed Girls18- Crazy Little Thing Called Love19- Bohemian Rhapsody20- Tie Your Mother Down21- Another One Bites the Dust22- We Will Rock You23- We Are the Champions24- God Save the QueenVideo: 1.33 - full screenAudio: DTS 5.1 surround, PCM stereoRelease date: November 9th.

5.0 out of 5 stars They really were on fire Nov. 27 2004
By Stephen Morrison Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It's easy to see why some people would claim this was Queen at their peak. This is a very solid concert, very high energy, and very Queen.

Of course, there are flaws in the actual video, due to the date of the concert and the lack of huge budgets for live videos at the time. These shouldn't be a problem for your enjoyment, however, unless you really dig picture perfect presentation. Queen was more about the show anyway, and the sounds are pretty top notch. The visual performance is every bit as good, even if the video doesn't always capture a picture perfect reflection of it.

My only real issue is that Brian's vocals appeared to be heavily buried in the mix. I know that Brian has never had the presence of Freddie or even Roger, but his vocals should be a little more obvious. This could, however, be a flaw in the actual recording of the concert, and doesn't ruin the disc at all.

Otherwise, Freddie Mercury is on the entire night. Queen's presentation is simply excellent. This is, perhaps the only chance to catch "Hot Space" tracks in full versions on video (Action this day, Staying Power, Backchat). While the hot Space album is considered by many fans to be the low point of Queen's career, it's part of the Queen experience (And I am personally a fan of Staying Power and Backchat). Hearing "Hero" from Flash Gordon live is also a solid option.

The high points of this show are many, but include: We Will rock You (Fast), Somebody to Love, Now I'm Here, Dragon Attack (on of my favorites), Back Chat, Get Down, Make Love (The visual presentation in the bridge of this song is amazing), Fat Bottomed Girls, and Tie Your Mother down.

In total, this video does capture Queen in a strong light, whether this is at their "peak" or not. Highly recommended to Queen fans, or just fans of a good live show.

4.0 out of 5 stars i've seen some of this... Oct. 18 2004
By ryan m - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
this show at Milton Keynes rips. It lacks the glossy production of the Wembley taping but the overall execution by the band is superior--particularly Freddie Mercury's vocals. A highlight is Freddie's impromptu launch into "Somebody To Love". Also love the Flash Gordon track as the opener. Maybe the songs from "Hot Space" will be better appreciated now? Anyway--I'll definitely pick this one up. Hope they come out with the Budapest concert next.

5.0 out of 5 stars On Fire and Still Burning Nov. 17 2004
By Manny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
What do you get when the worlds greatest live rock band performs in front of 40,000 loyal fans? Queen On Fire At The Bowl and then some. As you may or may not be aware of, Queen had (and may still have) the largest fan club in the world, and it seemed as if the entire fan club was at this particular concert.

Queen On Fire At The Bowl was recorded live at the Milton Keynes Bowl on June 5, 1982. On Fire showcases Freddie's voice in top form. Rarely have I heard Freddie use trills as much as he did in this concert. His vocals were extremely powerful and pretty much controlled throughout the set with the exception of Action This Day where Freddie seems to struggle to maintain his upper range. Freddie, however bounced back with powerful vocal renditions of Play The Game, Staying Power and of course my favorite of the three, Somebody To Love. Freddie's "Impromtu Lauch" (from Ryan M's review) into Somebody was something different and special to listen to. Another Freddie highlight was the "Impromtu" sing along with the audience where Freddie has them singing like Aretha Franklin. Even the audience has their own highlight when they sing a nice rendition of Love of My Life. Hearing the audience sing this song reminded me of the Rock In Rio concert where it sounded like all 250,000 fans sang along. This made me realize how truly loved this song is.

Though Freddie's voice was probably the highlight of the show, It does take the four of them to play Queen music. I have to say that Roger Taylor's drum playing was excellent this night. Roger was never one to show off his playing skills, but this night he seemed to tease us with a lot of little drum fills that were pretty impressive. I was disappointed that Keep Yourself Alive was not a part of this set. I think Roger would have shined.

John Deacon was his usual quiet self, however his bass playing seems to stand out more in this set, especially during songs with his more recognized bass lines such as Bite The Dust and Under Pressure. John also plays Rhythm Guitar during Staying Power.

Brian May's guitar work was pretty steady during this gig, however he seemed to lose direction during his solo. I've always believed that Brian play's his best solos when he does the full version of Brighton Rock. It just seems as if he needs the beginning of Brighton Rock to launch his solo, it seems to get all 4 of his cylinders going, as evident in his solo at the Hammersmith Odeon Christmas concert.

Over all I think that this performance by Queen was one of their best performances, deserving the title On Fire At The Bowl.

The picture quality of this DVD could have been better, it was a bit grainy and dark in some parts, there but then again what can one expect from a recording from 1982. The sound quality was great in 5.1 DTS however, the stereo sound quality is surpassed by the Live at Wembley sound. The bonus footage features extra live performances from Seibu Stadium Tokyo, Japan and Stadthalle, Vienna, Austria, and rare interviews with Freddie, Brian and Roger. This DVD set also features a nice photo gallery of the band which is shown during a live recording of Calling All Girls.
For queen fans, this is a definite must, and for music fans who want to know what all the hoopla's about when it comes to Queen's live show, here it is. This is the second dimension to Queens live abilities. The third will be Live At The Hammersmith Odeon where Queen struts their heavy stuff. Until then, this will definitely do!
On Fire is Hot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Mercury March 5 2006
By boab - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I had to give this one 5 stars because of Freddie Mercury's extraordinary performance. After watching this concert, you think to yourself, "If Freddie Mercury is not the greatest performer in rock music, then I don't know who is." I mean, man can he sing, and boy can he hold that crowd!
One thing that I did not like as much about the concert though, was the list of songs. There were some rather boring songs like "Dragon Attack", two versions of "Now I'm Here" and a song called "Backchat". I kind of wished that more of the standard Queen repetoire had been included.
Another minor complaint is that Brian May as a guitarist seems a little bit puny next to Freddie Mercury. Mercury has such a powerful voice that he just drowns out everyone else in that band.
Interestingly, a lot of people own another Queen dvd called "Live At Wembley" that was filmed in 1986. In that concert, Freddie Mercury's vocal do not seem nearly as impressive. In particular, he lowers a lot of the higher notes. But in this concert, Mercury is extraordinary. Some of the best moments, as mentioned above, involve improvisation "Somebody to Love", "Play the Game", "Another One Bites the Dust". Freddie Mercury is not someone who just sings the songs note for note as they appear on the albums, and that is what makes this concert so special.
Well, I would recommend this dvd to any rock music fan.
