Probably an inane question, but I'm wondering if anyone knows why Bohemian Rhapsody was played halfway through the set at this show instead of being played second-to-last as it had been for years. It hadn't been played that early since the ANATO tour, and wouldn't be played that early again. Does the bootleg give any clues as to a flub that resulted in it being played early, or even a casual remark by a member of the band about playing it so soon?

It is thought to have been an experiment in the flow of the setlist. I think they may have played all of Friends Will Be Friends that night too.

Nope, no FWBF that night. They first played it in Leiden on 6-11-86, and only played the full version one more time after that (the following night in Leiden).  As for BoRhap, there were no comments about it at the show...
