The movie Bohemian Rhapsody was decided, and unprecedented Las Vegas continuation 10 performances were also announced, and QUEEN + Adam Lambert gets more and more attention. It is their gift · release decision that their latest and superb picture is such.
This film was filmed “Cologne Performance June 13, 2018”. They have continued the world tour since last year, and now the Las Vegas performances mentioned above are announced. First of all, let’s check the position of the show in the walk.

· June 23 – August 5: North America (26 performances)
· November 1 – December 16: Europe # 1 (26 performances)
· February 17 – March 6: Oceania (10 performances)
· June 7 – July 8: Europe # 2 (16 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
· September 1 – 22: Las Vegas (10 performances)

This is the big picture of “TOUR 2017? 2018”. They visited Oceania early in the spring and they resumed the tour with the off of 3 months in between. The Cologne performance of this work was a concert that corresponds to that “Europe # 2” 4 performances. In the meantime Adam ‘s solo activity etc is not done, it is a continuous tour.
This work that recorded such a show, it is a splendid audience shot. What is great more than anything is an overlooking angle. It is a shot shot from the stand seat which sees the stage in front, but this sight is amazing. There are no shadows in the front row or in the front row, but on the contrary it rarely enters the arena seat. Just to be sure, only the stage will continue to occupy the sight. It is easy to be alone, but its angle and distance are too exquisite. If you can draw it all the way, the whole stage of the stage appears, and if you zoom in, the West of Adam and Brian will spread to the screen as much as possible. Moreover, it does not cause camera shake even if you follow the highlight freely, and it is spectacularly stable.
What’s even wonderful is speech. As with the scene, it is a super clear sound of zero obstructions, and that is the details on the sound board flash. It is amazing that there are almost no audiences and noises besides the huge clapping hands … …. Well, I certainly have a period in which I can not make this image beautiful well. No, it is truly amazing. Up is like a pro shot, and the spectacle of drawing is also powerful. Anyway, the best attractions from the sudden opening scene! The giant robot of “Dedicating to the world” pulls out the wall that covers the stage and lifts up! In addition, “Tear It Up” of “THE WORKS” can be played there. QUEEN + Adam plays for the first time this time “Europe # 2”. Do not say, it was not played in the days of Paul Rogers, it was the revival of Nebrworth since 1986 when it was Freddie’s last concert. After that, there are frequent sightseeing. “Seven Seas of Rhye” “Tie Your Mother Down” “Play the Game” and delicious songs are delivered in a row. I’ve reported “TOUR 2017? 2018” as a masterpiece recording such as “EDMONTON 2017 (Uxbridge 695)” “BIRMINGHAM 2017 (Uxbridge 773)” but this opening rush is a lump of songs that they could not listen to. Although it is the same tour, it is a fresh start / dash with a completely different image.
After that, it will be a stable show carry, but that is not going to be bad husband. The famous songs Adam sings as a charismatic in the contemporary music world now. That dazzling stage will be drawn with pro shot level video and sound. In such circumstances Adam ‘s solo song corner. “Ghost Town” in 2015 and the latest song “Two Fux” in 2017, but in 2018 the choice was “Lucy”. This is also the song that will be the first appearance of this “European # 2”, the number that Brian May was playing the guitar in the album “THE ORIGINAL HIGH”. It is also a raw stage by the two originators. And because it is a superb quality, Roger and Tyler Warren’s drum battle is even cooler and Freddie’s appearance “Day-Oh” approaches the mind. While there is a one-camera experience, it is a masterpiece with plenty of spectacular looks like a pro shot.

At any rate, a beautiful sight and wonderful performance. And famous songs reminded again that “this song still exists”. It is a video work that can make 100% of this entertainment show from the special seats. Las Vegas declared “to make a new challenge” is a product that makes it impossible to wait ten consecutive performances. Please, please enjoy plenty.



これが“TOUR 2017?2018”の全体像。春先にオセアニアを巡った彼らは3ヶ月のオフを挟んでツアーを再開。本作のケルン公演はその「欧州#2」4公演目にあたるコンサートでした。この間にアダムのソロ活動などは行われず、ひと続きのツアーとなっています。
さらに素晴らしいのは音声。光景と同じく遮蔽物ゼロの超クリア・サウンドで、それこそサウンドボードばりに詳細。広大な手拍子以外にオーディエンス・ノイズがほとんどないのも驚異的です……うーん、どうもこの凄さを、映像美を上手く言葉に出来ていないような期がする。いや本当に凄まじいのです。アップはプロショットのようですし、引きのスペクタクルもド迫力。何しろ、いきなりの開演シーンから最高の見どころ! 『世界に捧ぐ』の巨大ロボットがステージを覆うような壁をぶち抜き、持ち上げていく!! しかも、そこで奏でられるのは『THE WORKS』の「Tear It Up」。QUEEN+アダムが演奏するのは、今回の「欧州#2」が初めて。と言いますか、ポール・ロジャース時代にも演奏されず、フレディのラスト・コンサートとなった1986年ネブワース以来の復活です。その後も見どころの連発。「Seven Seas of Rhye」「Tie Your Mother Down」「Play the Game」と美味しい曲が立て続けに繰り出される。これまで“TOUR 2017?2018”を『EDMONTON 2017(Uxbridge 695)』『BIRMINGHAM 2017(Uxbridge 773)』といった傑作録音でレポートしてきましたが、このオープニング・ラッシュはそれらでは聴けなかった曲の塊。同じツアーではあるものの、まったくイメージの違うフレッシュなスタート・ダッシュなのです。
その後は安定のショウ運びとなりますが、それが悪かろうハズがない。今や現代の音楽界で希代のカリスマとなったアダムが歌う名曲たち。その目眩くステージがプロショット級の映像とサウンドで描かれていくのですから。そんな中でハッとなるのがアダムのソロ曲コーナー。2015年には「Ghost Town」、2017年には最新曲「Two Fux」が選ばれていましたが、2018年のチョイスは「Lucy」。これまた今回の「欧州#2」が初登場となる曲で、アルバム『THE ORIGINAL HIGH』でもブライアン・メイがギターを弾いていたナンバー。そのオリジネイター2人による生ステージでもある。そして、極上クオリティだからこそロジャーとタイラー・ウォーレンのドラム・バトルも一層カッコ良く、フレディが登場する「Day-Oh」も胸に迫る。ワンカメの体験感がありながら、プロショットのような見応えもたっぷりの傑作なのです。
