Over, all 15 performances of large volume. Although it was QUEEN of popular explosion from the first visit to Japan, this third time is the most numerous. The popularity of boiling is transmitted only on schedule. This work was not only the 2nd time at Nippon Budokan but also the whole concert as the 2nd tour in the whole tour.
The quality of such a work is superb. This show has long been known for powerful recording, has been loved as “PRIDE AND JOY (Wardour-047)”. However, the sound of this work has even exceeded that masterpiece! Although it has been praised as “Budokan in the martial arts building”, this work is clearer and sparkling shining sound. Compared with the previous episode, the venue sound is quite small and it is transparent. Especially the mid to high spirit feeling stands out, vocal and guitar reach vivid like laser beam.
And the sound suits you very well in this show. Brian’s legendary MC “I can hear well!” Also sounds clearly clear (laugh), but more than that is Freddie’s vocal. When saying “Japan tour of” JAZZ TOUR “, it is also famous for Freddie ‘ However, this work is the 2nd performance show, the condition is still great. Of course, it is not “historical best condition”, but it will blow away the wave of upsetting problems! It is filled with the spirit of just saying. Although the latter half of the Japanese tour will still be unable to cover up, in this work the fight surpasses the bad condition. The spirit of “Now I’m Here”, “Love Of My Life” emotional singing … …. Depending on the songs, they are singing a bit different to cover outstanding voices, but this is not a “painful” but a “live feeling” as well.
Of course, if the three people trying to support such Freddie are fully pitching, the audience welcoming is also hot. Although the sound of this work does not give up the position of the leading role with a clear singing voice and a brutal musical sound, it also contains a realistic sense of the place on it. It is also a furious era sense. While playing, do not speak, clap your hand clapping like a metronome, and the yellow chill of “Gyaaaa!” Boils at the required points. Of course, it is Freddie ‘s performance to take the command and a wave of yellow voice that reacts quickly and regains silence quickly. That contrast, exactly “That ‘s Western music! “Nori is boring.
