[Update: Bad original choice of words. I love the fact that people are sharing moments live, and that viewers can chat along. The sound and video quality depends on a lot of variables as are discussed in the comments.]
Made me take a look at YouTube to see what people were uploading from Adam's concerts.
I wathched three videos and they improved in quality with each one. [In reverse chronological order from Best to Worst]
The Boston video is a screen capture of a professional production. But let's go back to crowd-sourced video.
Check this compilation. It takes footage from multiple people who were at the same concert.
Adam Lambert - Strut *IMPROVED VERSION* Fantasy Springs
Download the HD/iPod mp4/mp3 of this performance at my blog http://bit.ly/AloFSStrut. I edited the best footage from anthrogeekPF, etharei8, lekispop, mywilson3235, TALCvids & TheLambertLuvva, setting it to tinafea's recording which I cleaned up & enhanced. Edited by me http://adamlambertobsession.blogspot.comI enjoyed seeing people capture moments, and then the creativity of someone else pulling it all together.
This is from the concert in Indio on 27/02/10. Thanks to all the videographers for capturing the concert and to Adam Lambert for a thrilling show.
In the end, the professional production beats them all for audio and video quality, but crowd sourced video can't be beat for immediacy and authenticity in capturing a live event.
What are your thoughts?
Update from the comments:
ADAM LAMBERT Glam Nation tour AFTERMATH in Wilkes Barre.
Also by indybeck71, his hit single, Whataya Want From Me, and the Muse-penned Soaked.
Great job with the quality and fast turnaround.
