Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74 release


Article by:

To mark the fortieth anniversary Virgin Records and Queen are to release the “long-lost live album”, originally intended for release in 1974. Newly mixed and mastered, Queen: Live At The Rainbow ’74, will released in several formats on 8th September 2014. Details can be found HERE.

Queen 74“Sunday 31st March 1974 is a landmark date in the history of rock music. It is now celebrated in the multi format release of a rare recording made at legendary London venue The Rainbow, of a concert by a then up-and-coming band called Queen. Few who turned up for that iconic performance could have predicted they would go on to become arguably the world’s best and most successful rock group, although many more may have suspected it after this stunning show.

Among the unique material contained in this release are over a dozen tracks never previously released on any official Queen live album.

Now, a remarkable 40 years later, Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74 has finally surfaced from the archives, providing an invaluable record of emerging superstars demonstrating their talent.

Queen and Virgin Records are proud to announce that Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74 will be released on 8th September 2014 in a variety of formats all newly mixed and mastered to the highest contemporary standard.”
