That's what the Sheffield audience was like actually... :S

But the cover (like the title) is awful. Single looks awesoem this is really bad.

Hah!

Just about to raise a thread on this........

I've never seen anything so unimaginative in my whole life.

Let's hope that the mastering and the footage on the DVD is of a higher quality than this - I'm not holding out too much hope though.

Surely a full stage set-up shot from the back of the hall at Sheffield would have been a better design. Apparently we're also getting the studio shot picture in there too (what joy).

The title is shit too. Surely "Live at Sheffield Arena" would have been more descriptive. What are Queen champions of? Where have they returned too (Queen didn't play the Sheffield Arena)?

Niek (Friedchicken) made an alternative and better cover within two minutes ;-)

Looks like they mixed up their cover promo for Kraft's latest Cheesewhiz product with their new album promo!

LOL! LMAO! Shoosh...don't give QPL any ideas. They might chnge their minds and go back to this cover!

Aw hell...it's actually growing on me. Has a slightly eclectic, abstract perspective to it Erin. I think they should go back and use the REJECTED cover!

I think it looks ok. Nice shot. Better fonts than the "Queen on fire album".

I agree that Niek's is much better and follows what they've had for the tour programme.

Maybes we could all design our own CD covers and send them to Brian.
