Audience microphone on Brian's side I presume, the guitar is roaring on this video. There's a lot more flanged guitar in the verses too than on the released video, which is new and interesting to hear.
I saw Queen on the 82 tour (August) and the audience was very engaged and loving the show. Even the Hot Space numbers were well received. The one thing I do remember from the show was that Freddie wasn't as engaged with the audience like he had been in 1980 when I saw them where he actually interacted with the people in the front. I think it was toward the end of the tour and they were probably pretty wore out by then. I just don't remember Hot Space being hated by people, Body Language especially was played all the time at the college bars that I frequented and Hot Space t-shirts standard attire around campus.

It could be - but it still sounds like the levels of the guitar and audience are being adjusted.
For sure these are the audience mics, but there's still a bit of manipulation here.
My favourite part is Deacon's chromatic run at 2:36.
Definitely would like to hear more of these.
I am planning bon uploading the full Audience microphone from Both official releases "We Will Rock You 2001" and "Rock Montreal", on the 2001 release only a couple of songs can be heard vocally and without Overdubs, the rest of the vocals is buried or is too quiet to hear because Brian's guitar is too loud. On the Rock Montreal microphone everything is heard perfectly there's a good speration of the Instrumentals and vocals but this doesn't do a good as job of removing all the Overdubs like the "We will rock you" 2001 release.

Fine by me, and then some.
Looking forward to it.
I think what will excite people is the vocals in jailhouse rock will be heard in its glory, no Overdubs or anything fully live, It will be great to compare to the audience recording that we have, it matches that perfectly.
Does anyone remember the original VHS of WWRY? It was 'Stereo Hi-Fi' and sounded bloody good, but the guitar volume varied wildly throughout some of the songs. Can't remember if PTG was one of them, but the guitar solo in WWRY (Fast) suddenly bolted out of the speakers!
Not sure if this is relevant, so feel free to ignore... ☺
