I know this is still very early days, but I wonder if this will come packaged with a CD release, like some of the recent Queen live re-releases have? Be nice if it did, given that it's apparently been remastered.

If a cd comes I hope it comes extended with some added bonus material of songs played during the tour but were left out due to cd space.

Plus I hope it was remixed.

Can we assume this is just going to be a video to DVD transfer with minimal work done to it? I don't know what format it was recorded on but I'm guessing they aren't going to be spending money on remastering the picture/sound or an HD transfer even if the option was available...?

The clip of "Since You've Been Gone" Brian has uploaded to his YouTube account certainly looked like they'd been spruced up at least a little. It was still very obviously an old, not especially brilliant quality recording but it was much better than you'd get from VHS.

The info is in the link provided. It's nothing more than a short statement. No big announcement.

With "Since You've Been Gone" it is, for me, just like with the Free/ Bad Company songs: Within the Queen environment, it sounded so much bigger. Most of them I heard first with QPR, then went to the originals and was almost always a little disappointed. The same happened when I listened to Rainbow's studio version of "Since You've Been Gone".

I doubt Rainbow ever got it quite THAT good in a live environment.


Certainly didn't hurt having Cozy helping cover it.

I hope this does get officially released. I have, what I think is a dvd burning of a vhs release. Several years ago I had a chance to get copies from someone's library, and this was one of the concerts I asked for.

I love the girls. The do such a nice job of rounding out Brian's singing. I enjoy their energy too.

I think the probable reason the song was originally included in the set, was because Cozy played on the original, and he considered it one of his career highlights. It's inclusion certainly wasn't an accident.

The Brian May Band's arrangement of the song certainly doesn't lose anything from the song, and as was said above, the female backing singers seem to add an extra dimension. Being realistic, I think Graham Bonnet is a bloody good rock singer, and technically way better than Brian, but on this occasion Brian delivered a pretty good lead vocal.
