Review by Guillermo
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars I saw this concert because one cousin recorded the full T.V. broadcast in a videocassette in 1992 . It was a good concert, IMO, but some of the singers were not chosen very well. For example, Liza Minnelli is a very good singer, but I can`t see a reason to include her to sing songs like "We are the Champions" other than Freddie Mercury was a fan of her. She really looked out of place there.

The best choices as singers, IMO were Elton John, who sang "The Show Must Go On", and George Michael, the best of all the singers in this concert. He really could have been a very good substitute as new lead singer for Queen. In those years, there were rumours about him joining Queen for a tour. He also released an E.P. C.D. with the songs he sang with Queen in this concert. Maybe he had the right voice for Queen, but maybe not the same creative qualities as composer like Freddie Mercury to be a new member of Queen.

This concert really showed, IMO, how hard was/is for Queen to find a real substitute for Freddie Mercury as singer. He was a very good musician, and he was/is very hard to replace in Queen.

3 stars This is a very moving tribute to legendary Freddie Mercury, one of the most revered adored frontman in rock history. His impact on the industry is such that an enormous amount of artists contributed to this amazing concert. It starts with a raucous version of I Want It All featuring Roger Daltrey who gives it everything. The next song of note is Stone Cold Crazy with Mr Metallica James Hetfield, and of course its a moment to savour as te band had made it their own practically. Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Robert Plant is a crowd pleaser and its great to see him on the big stage again. Perhaps one of the most powerful emotional performances is by Brian May with the ironic Too Much Love Will Kill You.

I think Radio Ga Ga sounded great by Paul Young but I could have done without Who Wants to Live Forever by Sea. I Want to Break Free is marvellous by Lisa Stansfield and a highlight is Under Pressure with David Bowie and Annie Lennox. They are absolutely dynamic together and it is a classic performance worth checking out. Bowie looks splendiferous in powder blue suit and Lennox is a sight in funereal Black dress and mask like makeup. The crowd sing a lot of the ad libs and seem to be having a blast.

All the Young Dudes with David Bowie, Ian Hunter, Mick Ronson is a curio that seems to work. Heroes featuring Bowie and Ronson is very good too. Once the mini Bowie concert is over we get back to Queen with ) George Michael and Lisa Stanfield singing These Are the Days of Our Lives. Somebody to Love is by George Michael and the awesome Bohemian Rhapsody is deftly handled by Elton John and Axl Rose; a genuine show stopper. Elton in fiery red suit handles the first part and is helped by the enthusiastic crowd, and Brian May is stunning on guitar. The opera section is just the original screened on the large screen. Axl comes in on the heavy metal part as expected, the stage literally explodes, and he is a formidable presence burning up the stage. He wears a number 22 guernsey and black leather skirt. Elton and Axl finish the song arm in arm and the crowd are on their feet. The Show Must Go On continues with Elton John, and Axl returns for We Will Rock You. A low point for me is We Are the Champions with Liza Minnelli looking like a fish out of water but the end of the concert is a mini concert by Metallica with Enter Sandman, Sad But True, and Nothing Else Matters. Extreme do a rendition of a Queen Medley and Def Leppard belt out Now I'm Here.

It was a one night stand to remember. Not perfect, but this is defintely one to check out to see these rock legends pay tribute to Freddie Mercury.

4 stars Watch this video for Gary Cherone. Not being a fan of Extreme I was surprised that he was far and away the very best singer to participate. I always liked Freddy but really didn't know how great he was until seeing all those other stars trying to do his stuff. Cherone was the only one who did ... (read more)
