Did you know researchers have shown that watching live music could help reduce people's levels of stress hormones, including the steroid cortisol.​​​​​​​ Over the past decade, a range of studies have shown that listening to music - and even singing it - can have a positive impact on our wellbeing.

But until now, no one had looked into the benefits of actually attending a concert. And if this new study is anything to go by, you might want to grab a ticket to your next local gig or festival as soon as live music returns to our lives.

But until then, enjoy dozens of concert on YouTube to get you into the mood - whatever mood takes you - there is something here for everyone.

Queen - Live in Montreal (1981) - Complete


6 months ago

This is by far the best concert recording on YouTube. The band were at their best, and not only played exceptional, but put on a performance to remember. The fact it was shot on film, and has been preserved in this level of quality is icing on the cake. It's almost a shame that the director didn't want to include the crowd singing too much, as I'm sure they would have been phenomenal at a concert like this. That said, it's still an amazing concert, easily my favorite. Gives me chills every time I watch it.

Queen - Live in Montreal (1981) - Complete


2 weeks ago

This is the best ever live footage of Queen. It was filmed in Montreal in 1981. Moblevision developed technology to create a traveling IMAX show with a 5 story movie image. They approached Queen about filming them and eventually Freddy agreed. They wanted to shoot all band members so they used 8 cameras. They had to rotate 3-4 of 8 cameras each filled with with a 10 minute roll of 35 mm Kodak film. They also had people running back and forth to the cameras and a guy next to each cameraman to load the film and pull the focus. The cameras used double anamorphic lenses to squeeze as much detail onto the film as possible. There was no way to say take 1, take 2, etc. when filming so automatic slating was used to create an ID tag for every shot of film. It was the first time automatic slating was ever used. Many years later 700 Apple Mac G5’s spent one MONTH processing the film. A computation compared each frame with the ones before it and the ones after it to remove dirt, scratches and some of the defects of the original filming.
