Would love to, but I have a 0540 flight cross-country to Seattle tomorrow
to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra.  There isn't any possible way I could
be out until midnight and then be up by 0300 to catch my flight.   I have
the Kharkov DVD, so except for the impact of the big screen and missing
out on a "one-off" showing, I'm not too bummed.

Hope everyone going enjoys the experience.

So I went to see Queen+ Paul Rodgers' "Let the Cosmos Rock" at Movies 14 in Mishawaka, IN tonight. Including myself I think there was a total of about five people there which was not entirely unexpected considering there's shit promotion for it.

Anyway, I had seen bits & pieces of the show on youtube of course but nothing quite prepares you for seeing it on a massive screen. Visually it was a wonder  to see though my neck got a bit cramped from looking up.

My biggest gripe (and it's a big one) was the audio. Now I don't know if it was the mix (which I doubt) or if the theater's surround speakers were that bad but there was virtually NO surround sound to speak of, everything seemed to be coming from the front speakers. Oh sure there was some noise from the sides but it's pretty bad when you can't even hear the backing vocals and the bass was sorely lacking. It really robbed the performance of having any weight. Lead vocals, lead guitar were crystal clear with the drums falling somewhere in the middle in terms of sound quality. So yeah, that kinda brought down my enjoyment level.

As for the show itself, it wasn't the best I've seen them perform. Granted this WAS the very first show of the current tour so I suppose that can be forgiven.

Some personal highlights; Roger Taylor's drum solo first playing away on an upright electric bass(!) then coming to his drumset. He was flailing away *as his drumkit was being put together*! Take THAT John Bonham! The boys playing "Bad Company" was pretty damn good as well. "Say It's Not True" came together nicely with Roger, Brian May & Paul bringing the studio version to life. It was rather comical to see how hard Paul was trying to get the crowd to sing along with "All Right Now." Each time he went to them they kinda...well, didn't. On his last try they finally chirped in and the look on Paul's face as he said "You got it!" was priceless.

Sound issues aside, it was a decent concert though, as I said, clearly not their best. It will be released on DVD (probably next year) so perhaps then I'll finally be able to hear the damn thing properly.

Dang...3 people...5 people..  Maybe our 10 wasn't half bad! ;-)  I noticed the lack of decent surround sound, too, so it wasn't just your theater, Michael.

I just got back from seeing the "movie" in North Brunswick, NJ. I'd say about 35-40 people in attendance. I enjoyed it very much, but I agree, the sound (especially backing vocals) was horribly low! Here's hoping for a N.A. tour in '09!!!

Greetings everyone, well I went to this in Saginaw MI and it was PACKED......



Just kidding, there was a total of 6 of us there, 4 of my friends and 2 older people that made a comment that they hope it wasnt going to be TOO loud .. my friend said if its too loud you're too old.. but she didn't hear him..

GREAT show though, loved when Roger beaned himself with the tambourine at the end of 39...

My wife and I went to see the movie at a theatre about 10 miles outside of New Orleans, LA in a town called Harvey, on the Westbank of the Mississippi river and the crowd loved it which made sense because my wife and I were the crowd-no one else was there, just the two of us. As far as the movie goes the sound in the theatre was good so we got the full effect of the music and all the overdubs. The visual quality of the film was very good also.  The biggest problem I had with the show is three guitar solos in a row from Brian - the Brighton Rock bit, Bijou (which was great) and Last Horizon.  Three is too many and even though I am a huge Brian fan I felt there was a lull during this segment. Thank god there was no A Kind of Magic or Radio Gaga as in my opinion these two could be replaced by other songs anyway and their absence was a reprieve.  All in all it was a good looking and sounding film but it did feel strange to be in the theatre with no one else there.  Hope they hit the U.S. in 2009-might be the last chance to catch them.

Just saw the QPR movie concert in Kansas City, MO Northlands.  Total in attendance was 11.  I agree, the audio was CRAP!  Highlight of the show was Cosmos Rockin...that is an AWESOME live track!  Lowlight was the $18!!  Could have bought a DVD for that price and cranked the audio properly!  But Queen was in top form...Paul was better than the last tour.  I'd seen youtube clips, but putting it all together was a different story.  Bijou was awesome as was Seagull!  Lets cross fingers in hopes QPR come to the US in '09!!

Just returned from seeing the Cosmos Rocks!!!! Ok first I saw the movie at a great theatre in NJ The Ritz in Voorhees outside of Philly. Some of the things have already been said, the sound absolutely sucked! There was no surrouned sound to speak of, and this really affected the experience. The sound was coming from the front of the theatre with the exception of a few side speakers. I was expecting full surround sound especially for $15 a ticket!!! As far as the concert itself, it was a great concert vibe, although the energy wasn't as good as ROTC DVD. However the band sounded great, would have like to here some more new songs, But it was great to here Shooting Star which they dropped into the tour.

Just got back. I saw it in Waukesha, WI (Milwaukee Metro) about 35 people in a 200 capacity cinema.  I would agree the audio took a while to kick in. Our folks started it @7:15 not 7:30 so many of the sparse crowd missed the opening set.  Now I have seen 11 show of the TCR tour..this show was fab, nicely presented and a better set list (more paul songs).  I thoroughly enjoyed it  despite the sound issues.  People were clapping and singing along to the songs. Missing from the set..Radio Ga Ga, Wishing Well, IAKOM. I thought the video and editing thereof was supberb, much better than ROTC.  I have to say this film was better than some of the shows I saw live a month ago.  I had some fellow PR fans in attendance who clapped and cheered for Paul songs :-)  After the show made a point to listen to the reaction/comments..all were positive and some mentioned that now they need to bring the show to Milwaukee... so I am very pleased at the presentation of the music but disappointed at the sparse turn out.
