Customer Review

on 3 June 2010
This performance is absolutely brilliant. Paul Rodgers' voice is stunning, and really does fit the songs well. He projects himself right out to every single member of the 350,000-strong audience. Not only is there a generous amount of classic Queen material, but many of Paul's songs from Free and Bad Company are featured. His solo acoustic version of "Seagull" stands out, as does "All Right Now". There are also songs from the new album "The Cosmos Rocks", which are also fantastic.
Another nice addition is that of Brian and Roger singing the lead vocals a few times (Love of my Life, '39, I'm in Love With my Car).
This concert also acts as a fitting and tasteful tribute to the late, great Freddie Mercury. For Bohemian Rhapsody and Bijou, his pre-recorded vocals are played in the background whilst the band plays, and video footage of him is projected on the large screens above the stage.
The camerawork is also very good, featuring many close-ups of certain audience members (many doing interesting dances!), as well as the band members themselves as they play (look out for Roger's tambourine incident at the end of '39!).
Also deserving of a mention are Jamie Moses (additional guitar), Spike Edney (keyboards), and bassist Danny Miranda, who takes the place of the sadly absent John Deacon. They are great musicians, and keep the concert going beautifully.
In all, this concert is superb, filmed in Kharkov's huge city square, and I would certainly recommend this to fans of Queen or Paul Rodgers. Honestly-you won't be disappointed!
