Comment:

A surprise concert by Brian and Roger on the Museumplein in Amsterdam 2002. It was on the Dutch Queen's birthday party. The whole day various Dutch bands and artists played a small set and Brian and Roger were the big highlight of the day, but it was kept secret until the day of the concert. It was free for everyone with an audience around 100,000 who all saw that Brian and Roger played together again live on stage since many years. Unfortunately John Deacon was already retired, but the band was filled with other musicians. Spike Edney played on the keyboards, Steve Barnacle on bass guitar, Jamie Moses on backing guitar, Eric Singer (Drummer of KISS) on drums during several songs, Patti Russo on lead vocals during Another One Bites The Dust and The Show Must Go On. Dutch singer Trijntje Oosterhuis came on stage to take the lead vocals for We Are The Champions. Radio Ga Ga, Tie Your Mother Down, Hammer To Fall, No-One But You and We Will Rock You are sung by Brian and/or Roger. Under Pressure was a duet with Patti Russo and Roger. Note that Hammer To Fall is the slow/fast version, which was played live for the first time. No-One But You was played live for the first and only time. The whole concert was broadcasted live on Dutch TV and later it was completely re-broadcasted including backstage footage, soundcheck, interviews with the band members etc. All this is included on this special DVD version. The image and sound quality are both excellent. Many thanks for "ghostwithasmile" for making the transfer from his VHS to DVD and also many thanks for Pittrek as he corrected the image quality.
