What song do you think has the biggest ovation on the RTOC cd/Dvd? In my opinion, it was '39, I think this is one of the best Brian's live performance. The audience reaction at the end of the song is amazing!!!...I also found interesting the ovation "I'm in love with my car" received from the audience.

i absolutely agree, i was there and the atmosphere was just amazing when brian played the intro to 39, and also it was special when roger sang these are the days of our lives in front of the old videos, but the best moment was when brian dedicated love of my life to freddie's mum! who was there with the rest of his family.

it's nice you were there, and I agree with you, but one thing I wonder is where Freddie's mom and family where sitting, the DVD doesn't show them and I dont think they were close to the catwalk, am I right?

freddie's family were sitting in a special area that had been cut off just for them, so no one would hassle them

Only '39? Sometimes I feel like half of the audience didn't know what the hell Queen were... Earls Court '77, Montreal '81, Sheffield '05 (from widely available, I mean) - the worst shows if we're talking about audience reaction, IMHO.

Well... close...
They DID have fun during Ga-Ga and WWRY... and BoRhap...
But yes- I'm In Love With My Car, even Tie Your Mother Down...
Folks who were at the rock gig instead of usual bingo night... never heard about any other Queen album apart from GH... Yep- that was half of the venue... Interesting, how different it seemed at few other venues- I personally thought Manchester rocked big time! Or Cardiff...

I don't unterstand that is this point about audience. As for me, I want to listen to musicians, not to fucking crazy screaming girls and drunk fellows. And I like this quite intimate atmospere on WWRY&ROTC.

It's something called mood, atmosphere... If you wanna hear clear sound of musicians - it's on studio albums. Live recording without audience noises, handclaps, Freddie's chats with audience? The next step will be live recording without audience at all ;)

P.S. Roger didn't want to play his Cyberbarn gig without real audience front of him even!

I was at the one in Manchester and everyone near me seemed to know most of the stuff. But so some people don't know EVERYTHING Queen have ever done. The point is the enjoyed it all.

i was there too, and i loved it allllll! I went just a bit mental when Roger started playing I'm In Love With My Car, i was trying to yell to my friend what it was, cos she's kind of new to it, but she just looked confused. X-) Happy, but a bit confused. ;-D

I think Love Of My Life had the biggest ovation because the sound of the crowd is brilliant, I also think Crazy Little Thing Called Love had a good ovation when you hear the whole arena shout "READY FREDDIE!"

I think the audience wasn't so bad, but if they wanted a great audience which screams lower than them they should have recorded a spanish gig. I went to the concert in Barcelona and I wasn't able to hear them as clear because of the screams!!! It was so great!!! Even they felt very surprised, it was incredible...

And the man that recorded all the concerts from the tour (I don't remember the name) said that the greatest audiences were Italian & Spanish, sorry for my English...

If you click on this link...

... and click on 'Seating Plan' about half way down the page, either block 102 or 103 is where Freddie's family we're sat, directly to the left of the stage and catwalk.

Surprisingly, All Right Now was as well received as any of the Queen songs. Then again, perhaps not so surprising, given how well Brian and Roger provided the instrumentation for one of Paul's songs. From my perspective, All Right Now showed the power and all the potential of the combined Queen+PR. That was a great, great performance.

I was at Cardiff, and I thought the audience reaction was great. There were a heck of a lot of PR fans there, and the Free and Bad Co songs got as good a reaction as the Queen stuff.

correct if i'm wrong,but WWRY was recorded in a stadium?i don't think that a quiet audience in a stadium intimate(don't know how many were there,let's consider at least 30.000) they where so quiet...see how freddie reacts on jaihouse rock..even love of my life they didn't sang.

i don't call that intimate,i call that very bad audience

I agree with Rockyracoon, I was at Sheffield, and I too noticed how Brian and Roger added real power to Pauls songs. I think the main ovation from the crowd was after Boh Rhap, and very well deserved too, it was.


Is it happening?
