I have to take off for the evening, but I'll check back in later to see if there are any more recaps!! ;D
Sorry for being late with my review…but seriously, the nitpicking here over half a note or whatnot people might have heard pitchily or not on a CELLPHONE LIVESTREAM got to me. I’m still only scrolling through the threads as I’m still on my Wroclaw high :wub: and sometimes, juuuuuuuuust sometimes, the mood here is a bit too negative for my blissed out self lol
It was awesome. I was sitting amongst Poles (couldn’t talk with them though because their English was…well, as good as my Polish….so pretty bad) but they were totally into the whole QUEEN concert. They danced, they clapped :Clap: , they sang the whole two hours. 30,000 people!! As I said, it was awesome. To see 30,000 people clapping :Clap: :Clap: :Clap: as one...it has been a while since I've been to a stadium concert.
And Adam was perfect. The whole concert was perfect but of course my main interest is Adam. I call Brian’s and Roger’s part “intermission”. 8-) Because I can finally take a breath, sort myself and get ready for part two.
Adam owned that stage, he walked and danced it up and down and to the left and to the right, it was great to see. Ever since seeing static Elton John in Kiev (not live, mind you) I appreciate Adam’s moving around so much more.
And I don’t care what anybody with a perfect hearing or professional hearing says: His vocals were perfect. You come at me with any nitpicking on a recording and I’ll listen, but to nitpick a performance like the one in Wroclaw in front of 30,000 people is just unacceptable. Unless your Brian May or Roger Tayler and lived these songs for the last 40 years I’ll continue the scrolling.
In a nutshell: It was awesome, it was perfect. The atmosphere was amazing, the time went by too fast and I’m glad I went. I’ll just dump this here and then I’ll leave for London. Talk to you all on the flip side. :4OMG:
Disclaimer: Obviously I'm NOT telling anybody what to say, hear or post. I can scroll and I'm totally fine with that.
These are my favorite GIFS (I can't stop watching them) from Capital Records Webcast ... courtesy of @illuxxia --- He is a joy to watch and listen to, as well as an astonishing singer, so I would not complain seeing him every week on IDOL ...
Ladyoz he is that. A joy to watch, even doing the simple everyday things in life like talking and laughing and listening.
Both BTIKM & WWFM are currently charting on UK iTunes Pop at #113 & #115 respectively, as of 12:15a MST. There're more detailed chart info in the numbers thread, if you're interested.
Curious...the single NCOE is at #15 on UK iTunes overall, and the album version is at #124 overall as well. Why are we splitting our efforts instead of pushing the single into top 10?? I thought that was the whole idea or I'm missing something?

ayleim: Just checking - so there were NO Adam-sightings in the performance show right? Then I don't have to worry about being near the TV later tonight, I can just listen from the kitchen. :D

minnie12: this is great, Sauli deserves the support. There's no negativity here and that's nice.

minnie12: Nice to see all the pics of Sauli and his friends. Has a lot of female friends. Goes out a lot with Ade?

blueberry: A tech question. When I post, I'm stuck in BB Code, can't get back to Preview. Any ideas? I have Preview as default in my profile, but that doesn't help.
May 18, 2013 23:56:59 GMT -5
Q3: blueberry. there should be a two labels on tabs at the bottom of the REPLY box -- one labeled Preview and one labeled BBCode. Can you see these or are they gone?
May 19, 2013 2:08:40 GMT -5
blueberry: Q3, I can still see the labels, but when I click on the Preview label, nothing happens. And every time I start a new post, it automatically takes me to BB Code. Otherwise it doesn't matter, but posting pictures would be easier in Preview (copy+paste).
