It's excellent! A really awesome performance!
Just listening to Freddie singing "Somebody To Love" almost brings a tear to my eye. :-D

Excellent, powerful and awesome performance. Band on top form. Hot Space numbers are MUCH better live! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.

Absolutely. A must for any fan and recommended even for the casual listener.

I think they should have done better with the Tokyo 82 and vienna 82 concert. For example, if you look at the quality of another one bites the dust on the rare live video and the quality of it on the dvd, the dvd is crap. They had to edit it but they failed to in my opinion.

..that's why i won't buy it...the HS numbers - i was there that day...didn't like em live then...didn't like em on Channel 4's THE TUBE special, haven't liked em on vhs since....and NOTHING will make me like em on DVD - cleaning them up doesn't make em better - the gig would've been great if you could use the "fake dvd easter egg" i suggested weeks ago - ie an egg to remove the HS tracks

Just love the concert. And the extras are good too: interwievs with Rog, Bri and Fred and some tour highlights from Vienna and Japan. It's a must

This is surely the best official release in terms of performance, but commercially, there is still no official release of a concert that gives Brian the "guitar god" status that he deserves. If they released something from around 74-77, that would do it.

The problem is, the material Queen performed in their later shows wasn't as technically demanding as their early material, so Brian hasn't really been shown in his full glory on an official release yet.

I have to agree, for the most part. I downloaded Earls Court 77- Brian is AMAZING! Even Brighton Rock is great... I think he did go a little lax in the late 80's. Then again I adore his MK performance, so as I said before it's definetely worth buying.
