"Die-hard Queen fans who have gotten over the 'Freddy's gone, nobody should replace him' thing will definitely love this concert dvd. For those still living in the past, just skip it and You Tube some Freddy stuff from 1980 or something. Seriously, though, this was an amazing concert, over 350,000 Russians rocking out hard to a fast-paced, energetic concert. The band was in top form and Paul Rodgers again proves why he is considered the best rock singer, period. He continues to amaze with his ability to take songs that were so definitely Queen hits and reinvent them and give them an entirely new feel. He brings a raw, bluesy feel to hits like I Want to Break Free, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and the Show Must Go On, the latter never having been performed by Freddy Mercury live, making it feel more like a Paul Rodgers creation. The new tunes, C-Lebrity and Rocking the Cosmos are uptempo and played with ease by the band. My only complaint would be too much indulgence in some of Brian May's and Roger Taylor's 'pet project' songs and not enough time for Rodgers' own material. He does an understated, lovely version of Shooting Star, but a few more chances for the band to play some more Free music would be better. All in all, a nice compromise for both Queen fans and Paul Rodgers enthusiasts."
