I don't actually have this DVD, but a friend gave me the CD of it today, and WOW were they "on" that night!! I saw a few videos off of youtube, and damn, they all look so good! Freddie looks lovely w/o his shirt on, and those white pants.. *grins*

I hope to get this DVD soon. For those of you who have it, could you give me your 2 cents on this amazing concert?

Cheers!


That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends...

Yeah, they were on point...did you see the whole concert...Freddie was so outta control that night, he bit one of strings on Bri's guitar, (when they were singing sheer heart attack) and Bri lost the cord while he was doing his solo, it was soooo damn funny, he looked confused like what happened...??? lol

But overall excellent DVD...I'll be happy when they have more of their performances from the 70's on DVD!!!

Cheers

Somebody To Love is mega fabulous, and I love Action - who can strut better than Freddie. In that same song, he does this skippy skippy skippy thing with his feet as he flows across the stage. How does he do that? And his jacket with the streamers hanging down from his waist by his hips. Oh my oh my. Are you ready brothers and sisters?


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

I love the Back Chat version on this dvd/cd.
I think this version is better than the album version, and the version of Action this day is really good too.

The reference to Brian having his guitar getting unplugged...that is exactly why I love this band. Do you know how many bands would've doctored the video to make it look like nothing ever goes wrong? It made the band look all the more human...and that's keeping in mind that Queen's road crew were among the best in the world! BTW, I like Freddies little rap to the crowd defending "the new sounds" of Hot Space..."people get so excited", they must've been taking a lot of flak about and were sensative about it.

Roger overplayed his electronics

Thats my 2 cents


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

Well, they STILL doctored it up, if you listen to the bootleg version of this concert you will hear Freddie's voice crack on Fat Bottomed Girls.. Yes yes yes.. I KNOW its been said before.. but I will say it again.. :P

all in all it is a good show yes.
