4.0 out of 5 stars Fun stuff but camera work could be a lot better, 21 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live In Ukraine [DVD] [2009] (Audio CD)
I went to see the Cosmos Rocks tour in Liverpool and it was a fantastic night out with the whole band on top form.

Unlike some of the other moaners leaving reviews here I accept that Brian and Rodger have moved on and things are different now. One of the true pleasures is that the songs that Freddie wrote and sang are still going strong and work well with Paul's voice. It is good to hear some of Paul's early stuff again too and it was treat to have a few new songs from the new album.

OK it is a bit of a repetition - but then aren't all live shows? Look at the previous Queen releases of live shows on VHS and DVD and you will find that 90% of the playlist is the same going back to Live at Milton Keynes Bowl.

The extras explain how the filming was all rather off the cuff and last minute and it does show in places. The one place I was really looking forward to seeing again was the 'evolving' drum solo where Rodger's kit grows as the solo progresses. On stage it was a fantastic thing to watch but unfortunately it doesn't appear that the camera crew knew in advance what was going on because the whole experience seems to be pretty much missing with lots of close ups on Rodger's face and the crowd which turns the DVD experience into an ordinary drum solo.

There were some genuinely moving moments in the filming that redeems the overall show - not least a quarter of a million non-English speaking people singing Love of my Life flawlessly.

Finally where was GaGa? It was in the stage show so why isn't it in on the DVD?

All in all not the best concert recording but still worth having.
