Full concert recording of Madrid 2008 on DVD. The person who recorded it had a great view to film the whole concert and he did indeed a very well job during the first part of the concert. The rest is less enjoyable as he had to be much more carefull with filming because of the tight security. Overall image quality is highly enjoyable and the sound quality is B+ with some distortion (mainly during the second part of the concert). This concert includes a special performance of Las Palabras De Amor. We Believe is also a part of the setlist. The recording is archived on two DVDs to have the best quality possible. Both DVDs have no copy errors. Not sourced from VCD/SVCD.

Taper's comment:

I recorded Queen + Paul Rodgers live in Madrid concert, October 25 2008 with a cam Sony dcr-sr35, 40x zoom. I could record very well the first part without problem, but a security man said to me: "The camera is disabled, if they see you, they can take the camera from you, I'm sorry guy" (You can listen it in the video, in Spanish language). I had to hide the camera, and put it on my legs between the bars. They were monitoring me. Sometimes the sound is saturated. The problem is the drums I think. I shared the whole video without edits, no cuts, nothing. The concert was grand, first time I saw Queen and I like it. They sang "Las Palabras De Amor" only this night. Brian May spoke in Spanish "Una problema" "Mierda". Brian played a few bits of "El concierto de aranjuez" (a Spanish song) in his solo part, spectacular of course. The best part was "The Show Must Go On", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Radio Ga Ga", "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions". I hope you enjoy it!! This recording is dedicated to all the persons who keep Freddie Mercury's spirit alive. Thank you very much.
