diffrent vids exist for this concert..the cosmos rocks has a completley diffrent video(people near the back dancing).so i assume as in a previous unrelated thread(bowl overdub).these things have been sorted.after all queen productions cant have brian strike a wrong note lol.

I don't remember that.  Can someone post that being that it isn't 'official' material then?


I'm just getting used to my new exposure

Come into my enclosure

And meet my melancholy blues

Excellent spotting! guess the whole concert must be edited like this. After all I didn't like this concert at all. they should have released the Argentinia concert.

Are you sure Brian fucked up the Guitar Solo? I have watched it many times & not one thing went wrong. Probably your imagination.

Yes, I am sure he fucked up the guitar solo!  If you listen to the following link you will hear for yourself.

At 1.36/37 - fingers get a bit muddled
At 1.43/44 - ends the solo with a howler of a duff note

When you hear the official version these have been magically repaired.  I don't have any strong feelings on this but you wonder how much tinkering has gone on.  Should live be live?! 

Looking forward to seeing if they include the Brian to Spike moment on stage during Bijou where Brian is left standing waiting for Spike to come in with the keyboards in an eventual head turning 'Where The Fuck Are You'? kind of way!

Live  should mean Live..
 otherwise its just a Studio overdub with the best bits from the nights no mistakes where made on stage,Keep Live
Live , and it makes the Recording more real to my ears anyway..the more i listen to queen "Live concerts" the more
i apreciate the Sun City Gig,as real as we are gona here....Them..
