Finally completed QUEEN + Adam
Lampart's "THE RHAPSODY TOUR" visit to Japan. Introducing a
masterpiece original recording of the Osaka performance. Of
course, the performance contained in this work is "Jan 28, 2020:
Kyocera Dome Osaka". It is the finest audience recording. The
other day, we announced the Kanto performance in the first half,
but in addition to that album, the West Japan edition in the
second half also appeared.
albums of all the performances were released at a stretch. The
release rush is at its peak, so let's organize it one by one.
January 25th "SAITAMA SUPER ARENA 2020 1ST NIGHT"
・ January 26th "SAITAMA SUPER
ARENA 2020 2ND NIGHT"
・ January 28th: Kyocera Dome
Osaka ← ★ This work ★
・ January 30th "NAGOYA DOME
Note: Only representative live albums each day.
Above, all 4 performances. All of the
above are simultaneous releases.
This work will be the first live album
of the Osaka performance, but separate recordings "KYOCERA DOME
OSAKA 2020" and video edition "OSAKA 2020: THE VIDEO" will also
It will be a profound report with 3
titles. You may be confused by the appearance of a large number
of people suddenly, but if you get lost in Osaka, this work is
just for you.
It is a set of two most important live
albums that have been released normally. [4th row ultra direct
The most important thing is of course the quality. After all,
the attention of QUEEN + Adam this time is not normal, a huge
swell that hits the general public hits the archipelago, and a
number of recordings erupted immediately after the production.
the masterpiece recordings have arrived at our shop, but it is a
live album of the best one of them. In fact, the sound was
overwhelming and what a wonderful direct feeling!
performance and vocals are close, and if the core is very thick,
the details are clear. The four-disc first report "SAITAMA SUPER
ARENA 2020" in the Kanto edition that I reported the other day
was beautiful, but it sounded like an audience, but in this
work, the core is round and bare and it is close to hand.
confuse it with a sound board because the proof of the audience
is engraved in the lively on-site feeling and the sound of the
snare tone, but if it is clear, it is comparable to a sound
board. It is a very clear and direct feeling that makes you
doubt that this is a dome recording !?
there is a reason why such a straight-ball sound was realized.
It is an original recording only for this work, which was
directly handed over from the recording person, but the
recording position is very close to the stage.
What a 4th row
from the front. Of course, it's not so simple that "front seat =
superb sound", and it gets worse if the echo gets around.
However, there is no concern about this work. It seems that PA
sound is directly picked up, and the straight core has almost no
ringing component. Moreover, both the loud cheers and the chorus
are in balance to carry from behind and do not enter into the
performance sound. Instead, the enthusiasts near the forefront
may be approaching, but it is a live album that is so powerful
that you can soak up even the power of "QUEEN and Adam".
[In fact, a surprisingly large number
of famous songs that were unveiled in Osaka for the first time]
The sound is depicted with a majestic
This is the third time for QUEEN +
Adam to come to Japan, and for the past two times the set has
changed for each performance.
The change was noticed this time as
well, but when I opened the lid and looked at it, it was the
same as in Kanto (the position of "I Was Born To Love You" was
different only on the first day of Saitama, but the selection
was the same). It seems that he has been focusing on the
spectacular production and the perfection of the performance,
which is the largest ever.
overall picture, see the explanations of other works, but let's
change the taste a little and rearrange it in comparison with
the successive Osaka performances.
The song I
played in Osaka last year (2014)
・ Now I'm Here ／ Seven
Seas of Rhye ／ Killer Queen ／ Somebody to Love ／ Another One
Bites the Dust ／ Love of My Life ／ Crazy Little Thing Called
Love ／ Under Pressure ／ Who Wants to Live Forever ／ Radio Ga Ga
／ Bohemian Rhapsody ／ We Will Rock You/ We Are the Champions
・ Japan limited song: Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together) ／ I
Was Born To Love You Since 1985: Keep Yourself Alive / Hammer to
Fall / Dragon Attack / I Want to Break Free / Tie Your Mother
Down-Since 1979: Don't Stop Me Now / I'm in Love With My Car /
Bicycle Race / ' 39 ・ Since 1976: In the Lap of the Gods ...
Revisited / Doing All Right
・ Osaka Premiere: I Want It All
/ The Show Must Go On.
There were no
Osaka performances in 2016 and QUEEN + Paul Rogers' visit to
Japan, and the set was different from Tokyo's first visit
(2014), so there are quite a few songs that debuted. “I Want It
All” and “The Show Must Go On”, which are familiar in the Kanto
area, will also be premiered in Osaka, and “Hammer to Fall”, “I
Want to Break Free”, “Tie Your Mother Down”, etc. Since the last
stage, "May 15, 1985". It's been 44 years since I reached "In
the Lap of the Gods ... Revisited".
Of course, I
don't think Brian and Roger have that much detail, but I think
some of them had a first-time experience at the venue. This "THE
RHAPSODY TOUR" showed excitement comparable to the heyday of
It is the finest live album of the
Osaka performance that appeared as the second report of the
report. Japan will continue to love QUEEN, but it's unlikely
that the tour will be as big as this time.
A West Japan
report that thoroughly enjoys the festival that may be the last.
