In these days of large HD-capable TVs and kids with no attention span, I actually find watching stuff is a better experience in my own home.

This is especially true of surround sound material - at home I KNOW I'm in the best spot, in a cinema there almost certainly isn't one.

I tested this theory on Live In Montreal when that was shown at cinemas, and am confident that I will gain nothing by schlepping to Bristol on a Monday night for a DVD that I already own, albeit without the overdubs - and I'll happily wait until the DVD comes out to "enjoy" them.

Hi, folks.

Yesterday night I went to see Let The Cosmos Rock here in Brazil with my wife and a couple of friends. It was a wonderful experience, I must say! The quality of the image and of the sound is astonishing. The band was not as "tight" as in the end of the tour and the setlist was not yet that of the South American gigs, but this was the closest to a gig experience you could get at this point!

It has to be said that the sound and even the video editing seems to be a lot better than the bootleg version, from what I can remember of it. They even had (good) Brazilian portuguese subtitles!

The highlight for me was Brian's solo. It took a whole new dimension in 5.1 surround sound. This part was even better than live, I dare to say.

Only some 15 to 20 people were in the theater I went to. Poor promotion, I'd guess. There was also another movie theater showing it in another part of town, but I don't know how many people went to that one. Both were very good theaters and very well located.

All I want to say to those that didn't go is that you missed it, fellows. Maybe this was the last chance of seeing a proper gig of the guys in the big screen.

Cheers,

Ogre-

I went to the cinema in Barcelona on December 1st and ... well. I was really disappointed:

OK´s:

1.- Picture quality
2.- Sound quality

KO´s:

1.- Quantity does not match quality. 300.000 people does not mean a great show
2.- Boring set list for a TCR Tour premiere (my exceptions - and I´m a Queen fan, not a PR one:  Shooting Star & Bad Co, Bijou, and the mega-edited TCR songs)
3.- Disastrous directing: Mr. Mallet seems to enjoy more focusing on really freak/drunk members of the audience rather than on the proper musical performance.
4.- When you, as a fan, have seen the original TV Broadcast and now you see the editions/overdubs, etc etc, the final result is nothing but a shame. I really felt embarrassed while watching the "new" Say It´s Not True.

It is difiicult to understand wich reasons take you to release and distribute one boring show with an audience that hardly knows one single word of your songs.

You have a whole European tour, a return to South America with enthusiastic audiences ... you have everything you´d ever need to perform, shoot and release a FANTASTIC SHOW as a representation of your current work.

And you release Kharkov.

Ah! ... 300.000 people, a new record for your biography .... ah! .... cheaper shooting costs ...

now I understand everything

Yeah, Vali, I understand your point, but I am so greatful that I got it anyway. I tend to think that they do not owe us nothing and I am quite delighted when they deliver good old rock'n roll, even if it is for free in a public square, overdubbed or not. I just had a wonderful night, and they have been delivering me that for ages! :) 

Fuerte abrazo,

Ogre-
