OK and @QueenWillRock my god Brian may can def rock he was amazing tonight that guitar solo was to die for !
IPB Image
The amazing thing with today's technology is that BM wizardry is flashed on screen and one can see how those fingers fly over those strings - a treat to guitar enthusiasts.
One does not see it in old Q concerts with Freddie Mercury. Those old concerts focused mostly on FM, that was what makes him an incredible frontman. But in QAL shows, I would say imo that BM shares equal limelight with AL. That is what I love most about AL, much as I would like to focus my attention to AL, he shows much respect and admiration to BM and very much willing to give the stage to him in his accompanying solos!

From what I gather from the response at Ticketmaster who have seen all the shows, BoRhap was mentioned more as favorite, a few love KQ. and some mentioned LOML as their the fav moment (I suspect from diehard Qfans) . Almost all of the responses (and that would include Qfans) commented they love the show and it is one of the best shows or the best they have seen since Freddie.

I have to say, I'm totally not a rock guitar fan, they usually drive me nuts....but when I was at the San Jose concert, I was totally spellbound by Brian's guitar playing.  I swear he could make that guitar sing, it was so clear.

I never thought his solo was too long, I could have sat there all night, listening to him play.

Thanks, everybody, for bringing in the good stuff.  I never, ever get tired of all the accolades.

Queen + Adam Lambert at the Manchester Arena tonight was incredible! Steward said it was biggest audience (cont) http://tl.gd/n_1sk66c2

" Steward said it was biggest audience he's seen since he's worked there (about 16k). We had awesome seats, great view and sound was fantastic! Adam definitely converted a few Queen fans tonight - was chatting to a few guys in the car park afterwards, all glowing reviews (the only negative someone could find was Adam was a bit too camp on a few songs, tsk, but he did say Adam had an unbelievable voice and no one else could do the songs justice in today's pool of talent). I think my mum can understand my constant galivanting all over the globe now, lol :P

Home now, up in 5.5 hours for work - wish I was doing it all again on Friday /o\"

I was working during this concert and could only listen to the audio stream...which was great!  Thank you so much for getting people to volunteer to do this for us.  

I think that separating the discussion from the concert thread just serves to separate us during the concert.  The fewer threads we have to go to, the better.

For each concert, I think that all the conversation and everything else that pertains to it belongs in the concert thread.  I go into the concert thread first to plan for concerts, then to get the stream and twitter links and then to enjoy the tweets and info leading up to the concert.  When the concert starts, it makes sense to stay in that thread to discuss that concert while it is happening and then afterwards, read all the tweets, pictures and videos brought in for that concert.  It is almost like having a complete memento for that concert which is fun to go through.  I especially enjoyed getting home from the concerts I attended and reading everything that went on here during that concert.  

My biggest concern was that we were prioritizing bringing in tweets and pictures, etc. rather than having a conversation and enjoying the stream if we were lucky enough to have one.  It was becoming a stressful chore for a few members to try and post and keep up with everything coming in.  I don't think we need dozens of up to the second tweets.  Most of us are probably unable to read them until later anyway so a few choice ones during the concert are plenty, bring the majority of tweets in groups after the concert is over.

barb4Adam @ Jan 21st 2015, 2:58 PM

Adam is Naked and he's Far from Home.....
Adam’s hall mark is vocal control.....

But the moment where it all crystallizes, at least for me, is when Adam sings “Save Me” in the third act. This is a new addition for the UK/European tour, and it’s very powerful, especially as a lead-in to “Who Wants to Live Forever.”

But what makes it that way is that Adam sings the first few lines a cappella. He stands on the top of a staircase that angles up from the stage to over the audience, all alone under a spot light. Just him, his voice and a microphone. There are no drums to keep him on beat; no instruments to keep him on key; no backing voices to hide any vocal mistakes. There’s nowhere to hide. He’s vulnerable, off balance. To quote the song, he is naked and he’s far from home.

The music does come on, he makes his way down to the stage where Brian sits with his guitar, but he also sings the final soaring notes alone with just his voice. Filling the stadium with just his voice. Flawlessly and effortlessly, something no one else does. And still vulnerable in all the love and glory with which we clothe him.

I don’t know if he’ll sing this song this way the whole tour – that’s the beauty of live and dangerous. Things can change. But I’m very glad he’s doing this song this way, demonstrating just how courageous they all are.

I now love Save Me. Thanks for the tip. I listened carefully this morning before going to work.
I really didn't pay attention to the song before your post. It's beautiful!

madamimadam' date='Jan 22nd 2015, 11:45 AM

I agree! I think that the chatroom thread is not working out. Best to keep conversation and everybody in the one concert thread.

I'm going to merge the chatroom thread with the Leeds concert thread since most of the convo that took place there was for Leeds. I'll transfer the few posts about Manchester here afterwards.

Maybe we got carried away about bringing ALL the pics and ALL the tweets in 'real time'... Less is more in this case... IMHO! By all means bring in 'cute/special' tweets and some awesome pics but no more killing ourselves to get them ALL....

Yesterday, because of RL stuff and somewhat of a streamers debacle, I didn't RT any tweets/pics during the concert... and you know what? We survived! :roll:

OK, off to move/merge stuff!

:)
