Hi folks, I got the 2trk Promo CD from Sheffield today. Take your hands off it, it´s NOT worth it !!! When i turned it on, i really thought i can´t believe it. Awful sound, not well mixed: Paul´s voice not strong enough & wrong singing, Brian´s guitar is very weird, and seems to be a bit out of tune, not the Brian sound i´m used to. I´m a musician myself, thanks to my ears i notice every little mistake.
Why the hell do they want to release this show & not instead any other, where they are in better shape ? Just because Freddie´s mum was present ?
They did a much better job in Vienna, Frankfurt, Budapest or Pesaro.

BE AWARE. THE MAGIC OF QUEEN IS GONE WITH THIS RECORDING !!!

What do you think about it ??

or maybe even

Every bit of Sheffield I have heard so far, even on the television has been absolubtly amazing. Even the picture quality astounded me.

I personally think the two gigs I went, Cardiff C.I.A and Hyde Park were excellent.

I was not at the Sheffield gig but am aware this was one of their weaker performances and I thought, "Shit, there is me going on about how excellent they have been and they are releaing the concert that shows them far from their best!".

I have to say, I though Hyde Park was exceptional. Paul Rodger's voice was very strong and the music was very tight. Did they film this at all, because I did see cameramen there. I believe if they released the Hyde Park concert on dvd and cd then it would be a winner! Place Peter Kay's parts in there and happy days!!!

I think everything so far has sounded good, so what is he talking about really?

I`ve seen We are the champions,and it`s very good indeed!
Paul`s voice it`s amazing and so is the band. As Brian said before, as they knew the concert was being filmed for release they gave a litle bit extra from themselves, and i think the final result is amazing.

It`s about time to stop criticism on everything they do. Wich was the best concert of the tour? Can we really decide that?- For me, it was Lisbon because i was there, but probably those who were at Hide Park will say deferent.

The thing is, this concert was already planned for release almost when the tour began, and they were playing each night the best they could so when the time arrives they would be on ecxcellent shape!!

So, everybody was on top form, and to say that Brian guitar was out of tune...I don`t need to ear the CD to say that isn`t true simply because were talking about Brian May! I don`t need to say more.
And i really think they did a good decision by releasing this concert instead of the outdoor ones!!

Take care

Sounds great to me...excellent! A stupendous live experience!! Perhaps you can hear me screaming in the nosebleed seats in sheffield ;-) Having seen all the UK shows-I'll admit that sheffield was not the best show of the lot-for me Cardiff, Belfast and Manchester in their own ways were better..as far live shows go in the big scheme of things the Sheffield DVD will be a hit. I can't wait until the release date!!

It does sound cool.
I immediately notice the fact that TYMD is played
faster than it was played at the two shows I went to: Arnhem and Antwerpen. So I do believe they really did give something extra during this show.

Call me weird- I think it sounds fantastic... It WASN'T the best performance, but that's the one they bloody videod- so hat do yo uwant them to do? release fan recording from Firenze...?

I believe Hyde Park would make much better release- still, performance in Sheffield wasn't THAT bad- the audience kind of was at times, but the performance... I saw worse as well...

I went to Sheffield, and I have to say, OK Im not a musician, but I do love Queen, the concert blew me away. I am willing to accept that it may not have been the best concert, I wouldnt know because it was the only one I could afford to go to, I would reserve judgement on the cd/dvd until I get it, but I do think that some (only a few) people had sour grapes because Sheffield was filmed, got under pressure aswell as the set list, and Freddies Mum there, we were very lucky thats all, and I might add, that we also had to put up with the lights being on all the time for the filming, but who cares, we saw the guys, had them entertaining us, and had a bloody fantastic time.


Is it happening?

Sheffield was set as the DVD Show from the start of the Tour; this was revealed at Brixton. No doubt Freddie's mum was invited because of this.

I still think the performance at Sheffield was good- check out the Bootlegs- but the Crowd is awfully flat.

The best indoor shows were Budapest and Prague; I think its a shame the former wasn't released- though saying that, Sheffield has a better setlist.
