Queen

Super Bowl

Sun City, Bophuthatswana

South Africa

October 19th, 1984.





Originally shared by Anthony aka City-in-the-Sun at Queenzone.com

Edited by Alex Solan.






Here it's the amazing soundboard show at Sun City shared a few weeks ago in MP3 format only and incomplete (almost first half of the show)

Pitch runned about at a semitone (approx.) slower so I corrected it using GoldWave... now I've downloaded Anthony's original MP3 (single file) and done the same process but now splitted on tracks and encoded to FLAC (to avoid gaps between tracks for those of you who might want to burn to Audio CD)



Lineage for this version: SBD > ? > City-in-the-Sun's original MP3 single file > decoded and edited using GoldWave -pitch correction and tracks splitted- > encode to FLAC level 8 using Trader's Little Helper (aligned on sector boundaries)



.md5 and .ffp files included.



Also including the preview MP3 file shared by Anthony at the Serious discussion forum (also pitch corrected and encoded back again to MP3 128 kbps, using GoldWave) and a very nice interview to Brian & Roger from 1986 talking about the Sun City gigs, Irish radio clip kindly shared by Marknow at the original thread:

Indeed, I always though once a file was transferred to mp3 the quality was ruined forever. No decoding possible to the orginal quality.

Thanks for the original uploader and for the effort Alex has put into this torrent version.

and forgot to mention Danie van der Merwe for both pics from the show, not sure from which show but they survived over 26 years!

"Myself & Victor took off on a trip to see Queen at Sun City in the middle 1980's. I smuggled a camera and a tape recorder in, in the bottom of my boots."

unfortunately, the recording didn't survive the pass of time...

Was it at least sold or traded, which would explain the lack of a 2nd tape here?

Either the guy shows up and shares the second tape or he doesn't, Without any contact information, there is nothing we on Queenzone can do to make this happen.

I was listening to Part 2 and it kicks ass so I rushed through this sharing forum to find part 1.
The drum phrases, the guitar, Freddie's voice all sound so rich here.

The only ship that sailed was the one containing Freddie Mercury, Luciano Pavarotti and another great artists. This not.

Half good/half bad. That's life.
