By Cutting out Ogre Battle and White Queen they spoilt the whole thing.
This has always been the bestest Queen gig ever for me ( and ive seen and been to a lot)but OMG what a disapoinment when they cut out Freddie throwing flashbombs during Ogre battle.
I liked the Sound of the Newly vamped production , but that's it.Liar was good they got rid of the mistake at the end,but they missed out lots bits of classic freddie posing ...i was so looking forward to this but it didn't flow....roll on the dvd


Thankyou....Thankyou and goodevening everybody.

...exactly... they couldn't show the whole show if it's due for dvd... thus the edit. Editing the mistakes I think on this occassion was a plus for me surprisingly. I'd like the public to hear them at their very best... even if it cheating ever so slightly... unlike the FBG on QOF edit which I would have rather they kept faithful... voice break and all lol (he was human)

I think the mistake near the end of Liar was where originally the group were to sing"Liar liar,they never ever let you win".

Instead what happens is that the group come in slightly behind Freddie on the first Liar which puts Freddie off so he ends up not singing the second Liar and then carries on singing They never ever let you win.

They seemed to have sorted that problem in the new version.I also noticed that they had added back in some of the things that Freddie had said or sung which had been missing for years.For example,before they started Liar,Freddie said"And now a special Christmas edition of a little number called Liar"

It's a shame they left out White Queen (or cut in the concert at all), it's one of my favorite live versions of a queen song ever!

I was disappointed too at these cuts, but it was nice to see it good quality on my tele rather than watching them on youtube.
