Review from the net. 

“THE RHAPSODY TOUR” is unfolding in an unprecedented mood. A live album that lets you witness the hot scenes with superb sound.

Included in this work is “Mansfield Performance on August 4, 2019”. It is an audience recording that records the whole picture. “THE RHAPSODY TOUR” is a world tour that the whole world has been waiting for since the release of the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The entire tour will be handed over to the explanation of “WASHINGTON 2019 (Uxbridge 1095)”, which will be released at the same time.

・ July 10-28 (10 performances)
・ 30th July `` WASHINGTON 2019 ''
・ July 31 + August 3 (2 performances)
・ August 4: Mansfield performance ← ★ This work ★
・ August 6-10 (4 performances)
・ August 13 “COLUMBUS 2019”
・ August 15-18 (3 performances)
・ August 20-23 (3 performances)

This is the ongoing North American tour. All 25 performances are scheduled, and the Mansfield performance of this work was the concert corresponding to the 14th performance. The biggest point of this work is the finest sound. What's amazing is the powerful core. Anyway, it ’s on and there ’s no sense of distance. It is the most sound board-like recording of the three titles released this week, and there is almost no hall sound. The sound was realized by the sound of the recording artist, but the venue was probably one of the factors.
The “Xfinity Center” that became the site is an open space that opens wide behind. “Section 8” of the recording position has a ceiling, but there are no walls beside or behind it, and the sound does not bounce. It directly picks up the sound emitted from the PA.

This work is definitely an audience recording while it sounds like a line. The proof is that the mood is hot! This is already hot. To be honest, at the beginning I picked up some of the upcoming screams, but it was like the 80s! Encouragement and chorus are very thick. Moreover, it is amazing because its thickness is clear. As I mentioned earlier, there is no response at this venue. You can see that each chorus is clear and each person sings the lyrics. It becomes a fiber and spins the yarn, and the yarn bundles into a rope. Despite that fat chorus, Adam's singing voice drags the rope by force without losing anything.

Although I missed it because of too much choral spectacle, the guitar, bass, drums and other performers are super-thick and sound board-like. The performance sound, Adam's singing voice and chorus are the best like the official work, and the great chorus is super-clear. This spectacle is ... like a movie theater with a screaming movie. With that sound, you can fully enjoy QUEEN's famous songs, but the complete version is “Bohemian Rhapsody”. This is ... amazing.
Too great. It begins with the a cappella part in front of the ballad part, but the tape is also very thick and sings and sings chorus teams! Sing !! Super choral chorus that doesn't blur to the voice of each person, the chorus work of the studio recording swells several hundred times and penetrates the whole story. I don't remember this super spectacle "Bohemian Rhapsody". I don't know if the full version was aimed at this effect, but it doesn't stop tingling with the skin standing up.
