wonderful wonderful wonderful!!! I have sen them many times since 1975 and was a little worried beforehand but it was amazing. Good to see the guys are still rocking with the best!

I shed a few tears during the gig - particularly during LOML and Say its not True.

Great performance, terrible crowd (the worst I've seen on this tour). Paul was brilliant, great setlist. But folks who didn't know 39 or Love My Car and looked as if they just left Bingo Club didn't create an atmosphere- not like the one in Cardiff, Birmingham or Manchester anyway...

I totally agree with you,I mean none of the crowd knew what key Brian was playing in,no-one knew RT's drum patterns,I noticed durng radio ga-ga & we will rock you the guy next to me was 13 milliseconds out with his clapping,I mean c'mon if your going to go to a rock concert at least have the decency to spend at least an hour a day learning all the words to every song the band has made.
I'm sick to death of people just going to concerts to enjoy themselves ,someone needs to put a stop to it,I for one will be sticking to bingo in the future!

C'mon- the crowd was quiet! The band wasn't even sure what is the response! Do people like it or not? That's the ROCK hgig- the band plays with energy, the crowd responds with energy, than the band lays even better and so on... It's not about knowing what fuckin' note Brian just polayed but about knowing what track this is or at least clapping along- I saw crowds in manchester and Cardiff and they rocked. That's what rock is for- to enjoy yourself and give your fav band an audible sign of appreciacion... It's not an opera, it's not a bloody theatre... It's a ROCK concert... I couldn't care less what chords is Brian playing- but there was 2 and a half hour of the gig- not only Radio Ga-Ga and We are The Champions. Half of the crowd in Sheffiled didn't notice that. And that's why I'm saying it was lame. To be honest- that was one of the lamest crowds I have ever seen on the rock gig- and I've seen quite few...

Well i think the crowd was good and too right who cares if we knew what key brian was playing in, thats just pathetic, everyone was there to enjoy themselves not learn to be fucking rockstars. i thibk the crowd was great

You know what, this must be about the fifth post from you about how shit the crowd at Sheffield where. And guess what, you are the only person who went to that concert who has moaned about it repeatedly - did you get blown out by some young Sheffield lass and that put a dampner on your night? Everyone else had a ball.

Check some reviews at queenonline- many people who went to numerous gigs said the same. And I went to the gig with my better half...
Yes, I moan and will be moaning as it's difficult for me to agree with the fact that once the best rock band on Earth (and very good one at the moment!) plays for bingo goers and people who don't appreciate anything else than We Are The Champions and Radio Ga-ga. I just find it really sad and depressing, so I rant.
Tell me something else- why does it bother you...? People generally post shit on this noticeboard, you don't reply to any post you don't like, do you... Is it because I'm talking about your city...? C'mon, give me a break...
PS
Again I repeat- I saw few other shows and that was THE WORST when it gets to crowd, it was one of the best when it gets to performance and almost the best on Tour when it gets to setlist (only two Irish dates were better).

I think the crowd were odd becuse it was so light in there because of the filming. The worse crowd out of the 10 gigs I went to but one of the best gigs!
