Ayreon have released another new live video, this time for “Valley of the Queens” from the band’s new live DVD Ayreon Universe – The Best of Ayreon Live. On 15, 16, 17 September 2017, Ayreon played live for the first time ever, bringing together 16 guest singers and 11 Musicians, playing 28 songs with performances by Floor Jansen (Nightwish), Damian Wilson (Headspace), Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian), Tommy Karevik (Kamelot), Anneke Van Giersbergen (Vuur), Marco Hietala (Nightwish), Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Edward Reekers (Kayak) and many more.

Regarding the song, Arjen Lucassen commented, “Here is the second full video track of the upcoming DVD/Bluray. The first track we showed you was the bombastic ‘Everybody Dies,’ so as a contrast here is a very intimate ballad called ‘Valley of the Queens.’ Man… even though I’ve seen this a million times by now, I still get goosebumps hearing these lovely three ladies sing… enjoy!”
