Nice DVD with great footage from the Rock In Rio Festival. This is from the second night only and comes from a TV broadcast. The image quality is only B-, but still enjoyable. Overall sound quality is good and sometimes it's really clear and great to listen. It only lacks some bass and the sound disappears a few times on some songs for about 20 or 30 seconds. As you can see, this is not the complete concert and there are a few cuts too. Tear It Up is cut from the beginning. This is also the case with Crazy Little Thing Called Love, but this one is also slightly cut in the end. Freddie was really in a very great mood during Crazy Little Thing Called Love. No copy errors. Not sourced from VCD/SVCD.
