i was there mate

they came on stage well after 8pm (about 830 i think). and although there is still plenty of sunlight left that time of year in Britain, the shape of the venue - it's a bowl - and the trees - meant that as soon as the sunlight got low in the sky - it was more or less non-existent

Cameras can make things look lighter or darker.

That's why you don't notice it getting dark at the cricket, and are surprised when they go off for bad light.

A perfect example is the part where Fredddie says: You know it's not often that we do shows in daylight" etc. Prior to that, a different camera is on Freddie and it looks like it is night. But when the picture switches to a different camera (overlooking the crowd) you can see that there is still some daylight.

Sunset seems to do that a lot (not meant to be sarcasm or yelling at you or anything). On the subject of cameras at MK, they should have gotten more shots of the rest of the boys (this is a Freddie fan saying this!).

just found a nice picture of the scene i was talking about. you can see that it is no longer bright daylight and that spots were already needed.

i can remember at the time that it appeared "dark" very quickly - one minute the sunshine was there...the next it was dark and cold

but that picture does show what i meant about the bowl...the bank of the bowl was very high ...about 20ft - so once the sun dropped low in the sky it didn't take long to vanish behind the bowl

I think it may have to do with whether or not the camera itself was under the stage lighting or not.

Possibly a self-adjustment to allow a certain amount of light in, making it dark when there is too much light and a little lighter when there is just enough.

I think this makes sense.
