Here's some caps I made. Sorry they came out bad. I really suck at capping.

Dual-layer
It runs 2:12:28
Imagine runs 4:00
Full menu music is a bit of the 'Beautiful Day' remix, but running only 36 seconds and just the instrumental part.

Looks alright so far, sounds great.. just kinda lacks excitement since there's no bonus disc. Was $19.99 at Best buy. You can get it cheaper elsewhere.

$13.99 from Amazon if you hurry.

Of course, I have to wait until November for it to arrive, but them's the breaks.

So, I reckon it's a single disc afterall??

Damn... bollocks...
Where are the tracks from the open air shows, as they promised??
Surely they did not talk about just ONE song!

Yes, single disc. At least it has a booklet though. I was worried it wouldn't even have one. But it's identical to the CD version booklet, just different shape & size of course, and slightly different info.

I just noticed there's a closing credits track listed. "It's A Beautiful Day" remix by Ross Robertson and Sergey Tarakanov. So at least that's there.. even if it is out of order :-P

I'm not going to actually watch the whole thing until this afternoon/evening.

Oh, and 'Imagine' is in PCM and DTS as well :)

After watching about 30 minutes of it, I have to say.. I LOVE IT!. My only complaint is the fast editing style on faster songs.. hard to absorb what you're looking at when it changes so fast.

The quality seems fantastic so far. Watching via S-video on a standard telly.

I think I can safely say I'm happy with it. Wish there was something more on a 2nd disc to compliment it, but the concert itself rocks :)

Does the 5.1 mix actually USE the center channel?

If it does, I have to give up my Immortals 7" record :9

Is there anything on the DVD that's not on the CD like a decent intro to the show (IABD remix and/or Lose Yourself) or does it start right into Reaching Out (= lame)? There must be something if the playing time posted above (2:12:28) is correct, because it's 5 minutes longer than the total time of the 27 tracks from the ROTC CD in my playlist (2:07:25).

EDIT: Whoops, didn't read that post above about that credit sequence until now, that must be it then...

Richard: I'll check on the DTS mix soon.. was thinking of doing that anyway :)

And yes, interestingly it does run longer by 2 to 3 minutes even before the credits.. part might be extra applause, but I'd safely say it's 2 minutes longer.. and I noticed bits here and there which weren't on the CD. Also, the mix is definitely different. I listened only to the PCM (I'll have to check the DTS by extracting the channels)

One big thing was the "Ooh yeah" stuff by Freddie at the end of Bo Rhap is not there on the DVD.. or it's buried in the mix.

Incidently I LOVED the show. I can't really express how much I loved it. I cried 3 times :)

Edit: And yes it starts exactly the same as the CD.

Hmm, believe it or not the mix seems to be an actual 5.1 remix! I extracted 'Wishing Well' and low and behold, the center channel is just drums, bass and a bit a vocal!

I'll email you Richard with some links to have a listen if you'd like :)

This is amazing.. what I'd always hoped for in a live 5.1 mix.. no crowd noise in the center.. they're still on the right & left front though :-P

is it just me or...they sayd that the extras included highlights from the open air concerts?

just imagine as a bonus??i am seriously considering NOT to buy this dvd....

not even a a backstage documentary,some rehersals....and they played Imagine because of the terrorist attack in London...if the attack never had happened, this was going to be a dvd with no bonus material.if we can call one 4 minute song as a bonus..

I smell an upcoming special edition !

it's a rip off !

Let us also rememberw were supposed to get :
- Bo Rhap download for free (and we had to wait for months to burn the Europe Live CD's, dammit !)
- Downloads from Outdoor gigs
- QPR's hear as far the setlist (remember the poll ?). Well, I don't believe anybody asked for Last Horizon !

Long live QPR, but enough with broken promises !

If the atatcks didn't happen two guys from darkness were supposed to join Queen on stage and they rehearsed Now I'm Here and Seven Seas Of rhye for that occasion. THOSE were suppose to be as bonus... After they changed the date, guys from Darkness couldn't make it...

Just survived watching the 140 minute DVD without having a stroke or something.

The Fast editing is distracting and unnecessary- it really ruins the experience..please focus on a shot of a band member for at least 10 seconds...not two.

There where far to many sweeping crowd shots not enough of the band. And no shots of me who was in the upper tier row 19 at the show ;-)

The sound was EXCELLENT.

Bonus of imagine--very nice

I grabbed my DVD of ROTC yesterday and was able view some of it already. (It was like being there Sunday night all over again!) I agree with the reviews above with regard to production and 5.1 sound quality. (Displaying on a 60" HD screen wasn't too shabby either) :').

I have no problem with the use of the fast-editing, IMO this technique works well and expresses the energy of the show. BoRap with "taped" Freddie is a major highlight, especially the conclusion where PR sings alternating lines w/Freedie and Paul's voice ends up finishing very strong! Nice Job.

I think Brian intentionally teases Its Late prior to Hammer!...and a touch of Love Token (I think) leads into FBG.

ps. I enjoyed the inclusion of AKOM in the DVD, IMO Queen always did a great job on the live rendition.

With footage from the US on there aswell. They must be planning some sort of other release from the tour.
