Review from the net.

This is the outline of the tour that has been published to date. QUEEN + Adam Lambert that began in 2012 also has been established for over 5 years. The Birmingham performance of this work was also the final performance of the 2017 edition.
The greatest taste of this work which contained the last show of 2017 is such a terrible sound! Celebrity is also vital audience recording, but if you listen carefully it sounds like a soundboard only. It is a neat and superb type like it was also done with FM broadcasting. Anyway, the musical sound is vivid, especially the direct feeling of Adam’s singing voice is terrible, I can hardly feel the distance feeling. If you listen well with headphones as well, you are still sucking in audience-like venue sounds, but it is also transparent to crystal clear, directing the sound beautifully, it is not related to turbidity or cloudiness. It was the familiar “British master” in our shop that made such a sound. He is a recording man who has lived in London and has been continuously recording rock since the 1980s. His collection is too large to be considered a masterpiece lightly because it is too big, but it is definitely a top class masterpiece.

A wonderful thing about the show drawn with that sound …. In the beginning of the tour also playing somewhat unusual songs, also this year is the fifth year. I also took up Adam ‘s solo song, but I came here and shook it back. The golden gray test hit color is getting darker. Still, 2017 colors are still left. This year is also the 40th anniversary of “NEWS OF THE WORLD”, and we will perform at “We Will Rock You” which reminds me of the opening of one of the famous boards. That is not the fast version, it is the original beat. It is a pity that the “Spread Your Wings” and “It’s Late” of that “NEWS OF THE WORLD” have fallen, but “Bicycle Race” and “I’m In Love With My Car” since Paul Rogers era are solid “Tie Your Mother Down” “Its A Kind Of Magic” “I Want To Break Free” also revived. Tyler · Warren (drummer of the official tribute band QUEEN EXTRAVAGANZA) who replaced the drum battle from Rufus · Taylor.
To tell the truth, Brian May is feeling a cold on this day, singing voice can not feel tension, but still the guitar is excellent. And above all, Adam is doing great! Although I can not mind also spending the number of words in his skill now, I really fall in love with the singing voice that roar in the super clear sound of this work. Although it was spectacular from the beginning, after five years I completely made my QUEEN number, and as a singer named 35, I can feel plenty of the most fat-rich Vocalization. In addition, the mood that is before Christmas is also wonderful. Not only the band but also the exhilarating feeling unique during this time in the venue drifts, the group of famous music of glory seems to shine even more.

QUEEN finished off in 2017 in my home country. It stands at the site of the final performance, and is a masterpiece that can be bathed in whole body with famous songs by the beautiful sound just like a sound board. The best live album that Britain ‘s proud name recording person recorded at the wrist of the arm to the latest. One more beautiful one not more than the year-end and New Year holidays, please enjoy.
