Queen's second live album, released on 1 December 1986 on LP, CD and cassette. The LP issue has a gatefold sleeve and a printed innersleeve.
Released in the USA on 13 August 1996 on CD (and cassette?).
A 1997 / 1998 pirate picture disc was released without a sleeve.
A 2001 pirate LP issue was released on colored vinyl with a giant poster which is also the sleeve. Each copy is numbered and limited to 500 copies.
Re-issued in Japan on CD in October 2004 with a card sleeve (using the 2001 remasters). The package also includes a mini innersleeve like the original UK vinyl issue.
