I just watched a great deal(well, all that Dave Fuller had to offer) of this on youtube, and, what a great show! Freddie was in fine voice, surprisingly, since he stated it was the end of their tour, and, Brian, John and Roger were spot on, as well. Another concert I wish I'd seen. Live.


It is all random

Oh, good for you.
Yes, Hammy '79 is awesome. It's always one of my favorites. And I'm sure there are many QZoners here who love this concert.


Je vais bien.

Yes I just now downloaded it yesterday. There seem to be alot of missing parts though. I wish I could find all of it because it was one of the best concerts. Freddie told the audience they were quiet. My favorite song in the concert was "Save Me". And then also...I actually hate the song "We Will Rock You" but I liked it in this concert. In the middle of the song when they had that great rhythm going.

I have this one too, it is great. Love Death on Two Legs and that crazy version of Sheer Heart Attack. Sadly no Mustapha, that one was almost always missing from shows from that tour. There's something very exciting about the footage available. It's not in pristine condition so it kind of adds to the retro feel.
Also, the band were literally so close to the audience, if I'd been there, I don't think I could have stopped myself trying to grab a handful of Mercury ;O

Sadly no Mustapha ?
If you're talking about the CD, you have there the complete Mustapha, if you're talking about the DVD, you have there "Mustapha, Salam Aleikum" ending.

Yes, I was talking about the DVD. We only get that ending as a kind of 'tease' of what we've just missed! I've heard a few audios of it and seen that clip from the St Paul Civic Centre but it still remains, along with 'It's Late' one of the hardest songs to find in a live video format.

Yes but also, you MUST see earl's court 77. It's pretty much the whole concert with no missed parts you can download. I can't remember who uploaded it exactly but I think it's Oberon somebody.
I love how it even includes the intro/processsion and at the end....god save the queen.
I love that!

Me either! But I've heard Mercury is very hard to hold onto and it's very slippery.
