What are, IYO, best live performances you've ever heard from Queen..

Not the whole concerts, but your favourite performances of some songs...

Like this...
Best We Are The Champions I've ever heart is from Live AID...
Best Save Me performances are from Kampuchea 1979 and Montreal 1981!

I personally love Love Of My Life from Wembley 86. I also like Save Me from Montreal as well, as the band was spot on that night!


How can I go on from day to day? Who can make me strong in every way?

I've not heard enough bootlegs to form a true opinion, and even those which I do have, it has been a while since I've listened to. Liar from EC77 (?) springs to mind as one that blew me away when I first heard it.

This thread could go a long way towards moulding a new "ideal concert" bootleg similar in concept to the shoddily-edited Opera Omnia compilation from a decade ago.

I've not heard enough bootlegs, but I believe that in terms of the relased live stuff, for performance it goes:

Live at the Bowl > Live Killers > Live Montreal > Live in Tokyo > Live at Wembley

I don't include Liver Magic because it's been tampered with so much it's awful.

Anyways my favourite part of any concert is from Staying Power to Now I'm Here (Reprise) at Live at the Bowl.

There are indeed some cracking performances out there!

But isnt it during Liar at Houston that something weird happens like Brian breaks a string, and theres a massive pause before the clean guitar comes in leading to "I have sinned.....", presumably to change guitars?
