Got a quick question, for any of yas who have gotten this DVD:

Is the audio overdubbed or "fixed" in any parts, a la ROTC?

My opinion is (on first listen and late at night) it's not overdubbed, and not much has been 'cleaned up' I think it is fairly true to the soundboard. It doesn't sound as 'clean' as ROTC, (IMO)

I'd say nothing was overdubbed. there are many mistakes, especially things like Roger screwing up the lyrics to Born To Love You, Brian getting more out of time in I Want It All than he did in ROTC.....all in all, it looks like a concert. It's a really great dvd, and I'd almost say that the sound (mix) is better than ROTC.
Oh, and the 3 extra months has really relaxed Paul...he is on fire from the start.

Nice interviews, I wish they had put more footage of the sound check, but it was pretty good, the usual DoRo speed-up stage assemble shots but we love them don't we?

Good interviews with the band and techs, I wish Rogers tech and Pete were interviewed.

I would say it's pretty good but there could have been a bit more than just a 25 mins on a whole disk.

Are there any parts of the Budapest concert in the bonus disc? Because I was standing next to a cameraman and he filmed me several times. (I'd love to see myself on an official Queen release :-) )

So the question is: any footage of the Budapest gig?

There is some concert footage in the Documentary which I assume are from Budapest. The clips are pretty brief though and do not show any entire songs.

What about the crowd (did they sang during love of my life, jumped a lot, clapped, etc)?

I always thought that Love Of My Life was a superb version during that show. A little bit slower as normal, but the audience sing very nice.
