I watched this live from a pub in my local town and it struck me that most of the people in there thought the new singers of today were crap and couldn't sing their way out of a wet paper bag. It starts off in spectacular style with Brian May giving the national anthem a right old pasting on the guitar from the roof of Buckingham palace. From then on it's a bit of a roller coaster, sort of like up and down but thankfully mostly up. Certainly on DVD you do have the option of selecting which performers you wish to listen to which is a blessing because most of the new ones are rubbish. Best bits... definitely the start, good old Brian. Shirley Bassey, still got the voice. Eric Clapton, say no more. Sir Paul McCartney, as good as ever and Sir Cliff Richard, never a dull song sung. If you like good music, good atmosphere and a unique setting then get to see this or better still buy it on DVD.
