This is QUEEN + Adam Lambert in 2022. Overcoming the new corona pandemic and restarting “THE RHAPSODY TOUR” for the first time in two years. It was also completed in late July and is currently off. The tour can be roughly divided into a “British” leg and a “European” leg, the former centering on the “London O2 Arena” performance of 10 performances. “RHAPSODY OVER LONDON” is a live video recorded at this London performance. Details are unknown because there are no detailed credits, but it is believed to have been compiled from 10 videos.
And “RHAPSODY OVER LONDON” will be distributed for a fee on “July 25th”, the final day of the tour. However, the distribution period is only one week until “July 31”, and it is not possible to view it now. This work is a DVD made so that you can enjoy such a phantom official video anytime and any number of times.
The quality of this work is (naturally) completely official. However, in this case, the reason is different from the usual “official grade”.

From the beginning, it starts with a credit scene like a Hollywood blockbuster movie, and there are almost no performance mistakes that can not be avoided in one performance pro shot. Even with Hong’s trivial one-shot, the contrast between the clear Adam and the blurred background of the pin is beautiful, and the composition of the screen is perfect like a painting. different dimension. The tremendous “work feeling” is completely at the theater movie level, and it can be said that it is a “masterpiece” that transcends all QUEEN + Adam images so far.
A full show of “THE RHAPSODY TOUR” that has reached the height of its brilliance is depicted with such unprecedented quality. Speaking of QUEEN + Adam’s official video work, it is “LIVE AROUND THE WORLD”, so let’s organize the set while comparing at the end.
