Just thought I'd post a new topic for opinions with it being out today. 

Anyone noticed the mistake on the Friday night DVD menu? It says it's the Saturday night! Thought I'd put the wrong DVD in the player. A schoolboy error QPL!

Just watched One Vision and TYMD and Freddie is on fire, really incredible. He clearly blew his voice on the first night, he is really going for it. Such a pity they didn't remix the Saturday night, Brian's guitar actually sounds like a guitar.

Queen on top form,pity the camera work isnt a little better but then again it was only a practice recording not ment for release so cant complain.
 Maybe its just because Iv been spoilt by the Montreal bluray lol :)

For the guitarist's out there, Brian's solo on WWTLF appears to have been dubbed. He also seems to break a string at the beginning of WWRY and used the Guild for WWRY and FWBF, you don't see him again until GSTQ where he is holding the RS.

I thought exactly the same!!  it wouldn't be an official Queen product without a stupid error somewhere along the line!

Yes, I agree that Freddie's voice is in far better shape than the Saturday - Who Wants to Live Forever is stunning.

I did also notice something strange in my eyes and ears telling me something wasn't tying up in parts of Brian's solo - the comment regardign this being patched up/overdubbed/replaced makes sense.

I sneaked a couple of tracks of the Saturday night D in this morning too - I know it's not a new mix, but it has been tweaked with some EQ and mastering; both Brian and Roger's backing vocals seem to come across much more prominently, and the whilst the drums levels have been evened up (the top end covering the hi hats and cymbals have been calmed down for the better, and the snare is a little more subdued but still with the 'crack'), the toms (even though those Yamaha's were quite dead sounding anyway) seem to now be missing any natural decay, tuning, tone and ambience. Still, that's to be expected if Justin Shirley-Smith has had his hands on them.

Thanks for the review. Just listened to the guitar solo from the audience recording on youtube. Brian indeed makes a few annoying mistakes that are quite hard the replace or correct. This could be nice to figure out what was replaced and where it came from. Perhaps another show from the Magic Tour????  Something for Sir GH, Lostman or Gregsynth I guess

Its possibly just a little studio trickery after listening again. Not had time to A/B it with anything yet.

Anyway, very pleased with the Friday night finally getting a release, its a far better show than the 2nd night IMO. 

I watched the 2003 DVD the other week and was shocked at how bad the picture quality was. Don't know if it's just my imagination but this new release does seem to have better picture quality.

Not so great extras and no new mix for the Sat night are the let down's.

Has anyone uploaded some of Friday night on youtube?


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

You can rip the audio from the dvd with "DVD Audio Extractor"...

Got the DVD today and I'm pleased with the other concert. The friday concert is actually much better than the day after. It's nice to have this too. I'm only very disapponted about the project itself that could have been great.

 -The image/picture quality is crap; To me it looks watching an old VHS transfer. I'm quite sure QP transferred the friday concert from an old spare copy or so as this is NOT the mastertape. Also it looks like they did not restore anything from the image. Grainey lines and dust on the images.  Probably the money and time that was needed from QP to tranfer the old mastertapes did not convinced them to do it.. So that feels a bit like a rip off.

- The musicmix is great and well balanced. Good job! John is very clear in the mix.
- The menu's are great, though a unprofessional attitude, like we seen before, caused the painful mistake with the date on the Friday disc
- Extra's are not so good. Just the old known videos. Though there are some new parts like the afterparty with Freddie and Samantha Fox singing TF. But no new interviews. Just outtakes from the Days of our Lives doc that we probably see on the forthcoming DVD.

I'll rate it with a 6. It could have been so much better in my opinion.
