By now im guessing most of us will have seen both nights now and can say what night was better but if you had to list the songs and what song was better on what night based on how good the song was that night, here is my feelings on it

One Vision - 2nd
TYMD - 1st
ITLOTG - 2nd
SSOR - 1st
TIU - 1st
AKOM - 2nd
UP - 2nd
ABTD - 2nd
WWTLF - 1st
IWTBF - 1st

the impromptu bit was good both nights
the guitar solo for both nights, have never sat through the whole thing but what ive heard is fine

NIH - 1st
LOML - 2nd
ITTWWC - 1st

The medley of non Queen songs was equally good on both nights

BR - cant decide as both are great
HTF - 1st
CLTCL - 1st
RG - 1st
WWRY - 2nd
FWBF - 2nd
WATC - 2nd

Overall i always enjoy watching both nights but the above is just for me, i know nobody will have the same opinion!!!

Plumrach, I'd say you're pretty well bang on. I just might pick CLTCL from the second night.

But clearly this is a tough exercise to be unbiased on, as we've heard the second night for 20+ years, and the first night was just released.

Btw, the guitar solo from the second night is superb. Might actually be one of the best things Brian ever did on stage.

imo i cant believe anyone would think IWTBF is better on the first night. I mean the 2nd night is punchy and sounds full compared to the first night. even the video looks more exciting!

Same with TYMD - second night packs a punch, it's loud, it's shouted out fantastically, basically rock and roll

WATC - 1st night is more crispy than the 2nd faded night, so therefore better

WWRY - both good. 1st night the drums are more bouncy, but second night it's really crisp. Think guitar intro is better on first night though.

In no particular order.
I think the 2nd night had more action and excitment a better rock experience.
TYMD loved Freddie's intro with the roar then bang the song just takes off and the crowd bouncing away is just hypnotic.
IWTBF was good i just wished Fred sang all the lines instead of waiting for the crowd to sing the opening line.
I think maybe his voice was on borrowed time after the blasting it took over the 2 nights.
SSOR 2nd Night brilliant and lively performance, Freddie at full throttle.
AKOM Not keen on the Live rendition quality level headed south and little resemblance to the recorded version i guess difficult to re-create the atmospheric backdrop to the song on stage nigh on impossible.
2nd night Hammer to Fall amazing guitar from Brian especially the solo when spike joined him on stage and Freddie doing the mock press ups.
WWRY 2nd night that intro with Brian and John amazing rock at its very best.
Overall 2nd Night gets my vote for the all round musical experience I thought the band gave it everything they had sadly Fred's voice didn't hold up to well in some of the songs. I can see why the first night is preferred mainly due to Freddie's vocal delivery.

The reason i chose IWTBF for the 1st night was for that song his voice was better on the 1st night singing and plus there is some great back up vocals from Roger!!

Both nights are great in their own way but the 2nd night is better in terms of picture and sound quality and on the 1st night there are a few random noises going on in songs that shouldnt be there

i think they meant performance wise.



its a shame we've gotta bicker on useless opinionated stuff... in theory, i believe we're all going through post partem Queen depression.


I mean, realistically.. they haven't released anything since 1995.


Brian has his albums, so does Rog... and not much has seen light of day that would be considered new or unearthed.


I'm just saying... not to sound obnoxious and all.
