If i have understood correctly, the rock in rio dvd or vhs is compiled from both nights.I´m wondering, what songs came from the january 11 and what came from January 18.

I watched the Dvd again yesterday, and noticed that freddies voice sounds quite different on different songs. Sometimes it sounds good, and then, little less great. If anyone has information about which song is from which night, please let me know.

WTF? I thought the shows were like two nights in a row, not this far apart. Oh well. I'll stop thinking.

This was a very big festival in Brazil, headlined by Queen, Yes, ACDC and the likes. It would be strange if the same band would headline two nights in a row. This is what wikipedia says (in portuguese, but I guess you'll understand the core):

As pointed out, the correct dates are 11.01.1985 and 18.01.1985. Obviously I haven't corrected it on this page yet :-) Will do soon.

Wow!!!!!!

The Go-Go's opened for Queen? That just must have been a treat.

But talk about a Guitarists' dream show. Brian, George Benson, Angus Young, Trevor Rabin (sad, no Steve), James Taylor, Steve Vai, and whatever his name is from The Scorpions. Andy Taylor (Duran Duran) was Rod Stewart's that year. That pretty much covered everything. Plus wasn't Randy playing with Ozzy still, at that time? (can't remember) Al Jarreau had session king Paul Jackson playing for him.

Holy cow.

Nope, Rhoads died in '82. Otherwise, yeah... lots of big names!

Anyone else think that having Ozzy followed by Rod Stewart on the 16th is a bizarre mix?
That must have been an interesting audience to stand in.

Id probably have enjoyed both, but I suspect I would have been the exception rather than the rule!

Now I'm Here (and possibly others) is definitely a mix of the two nights - check out how the position of the bass drum microphone changes position (from memory it's clearly visible around about when the solo starts but I haven't watched from years so it may not be exactly at that point).

Indeed you're right... ! Great observation.

Well, I was lucky enough to attend both nights, and I can give you a hint. On the first night (january 11, in fact 12, because the gig startet about 1:00 am) Roger played wearing white trousers. On the other night(january 18 - 19 - same observation) Roger showed up with black trousers). He was the only member in the band that changed his 1st performance's outfit.

On the first night Freddie did the first encore to sing "Iwant to break free" wearing the costume from the videoclip. On the second gig, he sang the song without the costume.

Also: Ozzy's guitarrist was Jake E. Lee.
