according to http://queentour2005.wegotit.at/ - the ukraine gig will be the official dvd from the tour
that's pretty brave - the very first show. paul sounds great - but they have alot of overdubbing to do!!!! c-lebrity sounded terrible, and some of brian's solos were off...

Yeah , it would be good to have a song from each gig for the DVD to pick out the best performances.

also Roger's vocals were not very good, or, at least, not as good as later in the tour

Is anyone really surprised (assuming it's true)? A crowd of 350,000, directed by David Mallet....what, you think it was only gonna be available through some shitty Russian/Ukraine web site or something?

not surprised - apart from the fact that it's the first gig on the tour, and it only featured to songs from the new album (not counting SINT)

looking forward to it - the live broadcast has some errors on it, playing wise -so they definitely has to do some fixing in the studio

Although I can see the commercial sense in this, in as much as it was being filmed in HD for TV anyway, it seems strange to release the first show of the tour.  By their own admission, the band got so much tighter as the 2005 show progressed and they say that by the US shows they were really smokin'.    As ths tour goes on they will improve in presentation and sound, and the possibility of songs from the new album to be added to the DVD will be there (didn't they only play two new Cosmos Rocks songs in Ukraine?)  Essentially this new DVD will not really be as interesting as the Super Live In Japan which at least contained exclusive versions of I Was Born To Love You and Teo Torriatte.

In addition, as well as Roger's voice not really being at it's best, it also wasn't a Queen crowd due to it being a free event.  If you record a gig that is a paying event attended by a far greater percentage of true Queen fans as opposed t 'Joe Public' the crowd reaction and interaction is far better for a DVD release.

I would be surprised though if they don't film a later show for release at some of the the South America dates so that we have two releases from the tour as per last time.

Would anybody be REALLY surprised about this?

The exclusive bonus dvd of the album (the edited version) of Super Live In Japan was used because it's costs were practically zero, and this time around Hollywood Records is footing most of the bill for their promotion costs.

Minimum effort for maximum profit, that's the Queen Productions motto.

True... but if you compare the energy of the guys and setlist to the latest show ( Hannover or....) three or four songs are now already shortened. Paul takes a day or two rest between the gigs. The first nights his voice has probably the cleanest and crisp sound

Queen+Paul Rodgers???;)

What did you think of the Amsterdam 2002 show, the Queens jubilee and the Al Murray show then? They were billed as just Queen then.

Eggsqueeze me, but I didn't realise this message board had turned into a "positive thoughts only" club.

Perhaps you should try to get that into the written rules if you want people to shut up?

what they should do is include some tcr bonus songs....

do they have screen on this tour? that means the footage will look something like Imagine from hyde park. more than sufficient for bonus footage. a dvd from tcr tour with only two tcr songs would be weird.

don't get me wrong; I'll be the first to buy it. I'll que up for anything Queen/QPR release as live products. I still think they should film every gig and release them online as official bootlegs - the same way The Who does
