First of all : I attended the Stockholm gig and it was FANTASTIC! The best I've been to..

But:

Why dont they have a big screen above the stage as in 1986. It's a big mistake to not have it! If you sit far from the stage you dont see the crucial details : Face expressions of the musicians, how they play etct... This can mean A LOT to many concertgoers!!

What do u think ?

I have no problems with it, as far I can tell.

I was at the gig in Rotterdam, and saw everything quite good. And I think the last show in Arnhem will even be better!

back in 1986 .. Queen didn't have a big screen at the smaller indoor venues (the kind of venues where they play now too)
Í'm pretty sure they'll have a big screen this summer..especially at Hyde Park

I know it was larger venues back then but still... I know quite a few people missed that at Globen... I attended a Elton John gig in Norway with 9000 people, he had a large screen and it helped A LOT...

We fans are at the front so we see them good.... but for the sitting audience it will help very much with a screen...

it just a tip really, and I think they should have it...

Those things cost a lot of money, most concerts I been to never had that, only once have I seen a big screen and it was only used for pre-programed clips, and nothing live, hell even both shows at Sir Paul's concerts didnt have any big screens, this was at Arrowhead staduim in KS which seats about 65,000 for a rock concert, Paul was mostly a blur =)

I see your point! It's probably quite expensive as well.. Considering it's their comeback tour I think they should have had it...

My opinion anyway,,,

Fair point but they can detract from the overall ambience of the show for the most of us nearer to the action!!

Around 1/4 to 1/3 was closed off, as you could not sit behind the stage or past the side of the stage, I remember that it was sold out, and was in the 60,000 range, that went for both nights, the shows were in 1993 if I remember correctly
Great town, love the BBQ shop

Why is that ?

If they ahad the screens as per the Magic Tour you would probably be too close to the stage to notice them.
