Here is a post by Owen Smith at QZ which I would like to share with you.  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:

Comparison of Saturday 17th Jan 2015 vs. Sunday 18th Jan from my experience.

"Saturday: Block 111 Row F - technically "VIP" but that only means a seat low down near the stage.
Sunday: Block 415 Row M - halfway up the upper tier in the gods

I enjoyed the first half of the show more on Saturday, and the second half more on Sunday. Let's see if I can explain why.

Saturday sound quality was better. There appeared to be repeater speakers hung from the ceiling further back for the upper tier, but I'm not convinced they were working on Sunday. The sound was a bit "mono" all towards the front of me where the stage was on Sunday, whereas on Saturday lower down the sound was from all around pretty much.

Crowd around me on Saturday was better, stood up and singing plus waving arms around most of the show. On Sunday everyone up in the 400s was sat down including me. However, when sat down your feet are level with the shoulders of the person in front of you that's how steep the raking in the 400s is, and there is no barrier in front of you. If you stand up and trip forward, you'll fall about three rows forwards and what seems like fifteen feet down so you feel rather exposed. I stood up for the applause at the end and my word I felt exposed up there.

The light show was better for me on Sunday. Where I was on Saturday I was side on to a lot of the laser beams and light beams from the giant Q and couldn't see what it was doing. On Sunday the light show was gloriously laid out below me and I could see all of it. This came into it's own from about half way through, which is why I probably started enjoying the Sunday show more then.

On Saturday I could see band members easily with my own eyes, the big monitors were optional or for checking which screws on the Red Special look rusty. On Sunday I couldn't really make the band members out without the large monitors, and these sometimes showed black and white or special effects or other crap when I was trying to watch the band. The video footage of old times with Freddie and John (much cheering for John both nights) were fine, but why show the current band in black and white or distorted? We're trying to watch the show on those big monitors, you damned fool directors!

Saturday they played great. Sunday they played even better. I'd have been entirely happy with either performance. I'd have preferred a few older numbers in the set list and I would much have preferred Now I'm Here to open rather than One Vision, but that appears to be this tour.

Save Me didn't do much for me, I've never really liked the song and mid era Queen is my least favourite. It did really demonstrate how well Adam can sing soft and sweet, but there are plenty of early era songs they could have used for that.

I rather missed I'm In Love With My Car, I love the way Roger sings that while playing the drums. Maybe he's not up to it any more, a lot of both shows looked quite an effort for him. Brian looked effortless and happy throughout both nights, great to see him smiling so much.

I love Brian's new "F hole" Red Special style guitar he uses for the start of Crazy Little Thing Called Love, it's got such an acoustic sweet sound. The real Red Special was superb both nights, it's sounding great.

Brian's selfie stick pan round on the B stage was a GoPro on Saturday, and a stereoscopic pair of cameras on Sunday which got quite a cheer.

Guitar cam on the black Guyton (current Drop D tuning guitar) for Fat Bottomed Girls worked fine both nights, it amazes me how much some of those strings move around. I guess that's partly due to the Red Special design having a short neck, plus the camera is in use for Drop D tuning only.

Adam was great both nights. Having seen him New Year's Eve I had already bought into him being more than up to the task. He's improved immensely since the 2012 shows, I have bootleg videos of some of those. But what was new to me was how he worked the crowd, he really can get them with him just as well as Freddie did (and I was there and exeperienced Freddie live, twice).

No set list difference between the two nights, so much for surprises. The only differences were Brian's selfie stick (see above) and the "sing along with Adam" section. On Saturday the sing along was the entire audience. On Sunday it was much better, he split it into left section, right section and centre section, and then had the men and then women in each section singing seperately (apparently we men have to sing the low notes from our balls). Great stuff.

I think I've rambled enough. "
