I know I promised you that this year will be uploaded to mediafire, but mediafire have completely f*cked up the uploader and it doesn't work for me.
I've tried both the new flash uploader and the "old" uploader, none of them work, so EVERYTHING is on rapidshare.

1982 was the year of the famous Hot Space album, which is a "favourite" of most of the fans. It wasn't heavy enough, but all the concerts WERE pretty wild and heavy.

I've chosen my personal favourites for this upload
- 1982/04/12 Drammen, Norway
- 1982/04/28 Frankfurt, Germany
- 1982/05/09 Leeds, UK
- 1982/07/28 New York, USA
- 1982/10/19 Fukuoka, Japan
- 1982/10/20 (probably) Fukuoka, Japan
- 1982/10/29 Sapporo, Japan

12. April 1982 Drammen, Norway (Star remaster of a 1st gen copy)

Taken from the readme file



Queen Live In Drammen 1982 Flac

Lineage: Master > 1st Gen Cassette > WAV > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC level 8 >
WAV > Har-Bal > Wavelab > WAV > FLAC level 8

Flash's Theme
The Hero
Tie Your Mother Down
Action This Day
Play The Game
Somebody To Love
Staying Power
Get Down Make Love (cut)
Now I'm Here
Dragon Attack
Guitar solo
Now I'm Here reprise
Under Pressure
Love Of My Life
Save Me
Fat Bottomed Girls
Freddie speaks
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Death On Two Legs intro
Bohemian Rhapsody
Liar
Another One Bites The Dust (cut)
Sheer Heart Attack
We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
God Save The Queen


**As always, I have restored/remastered this FOR MY OWN USE. I hope the
community sees it as enough of an upgrade to want it, but if you don't like
it, please don't download it.

I have corrected the equalisation with Har-Bal, then applied high- and
low-pass filters with a Waves Renaissance 2-band eq and brought back up to
level (-0.2dB) with a Waves L3 limiter in Wavelab. No dynamic range has been
lost, and there is a significant increase in the peak-to-average ratio.
I have removed the digi-noise at the beginning (and end?) and created new
fades. Where there were cuts in the audio I have crossfaded one piece into
the next, leading to smoother (though not perfect) results. I have re-tracked
the songs and corrected the balance between left and right channels. Very few
eq boosts were used, and...NO DENOISERS!! **

Enjoy.



A big thanks to Stark and of course to the original sharer of the original source !

The second concert is another fantastic concert -
28. April 1982 - Festhalle, Frankfurt, Germany

A small warning - Freddie uses the "f" word too much :-)

Also there is something strange about the frequency analysis. Audiochecker reported is as MPEG, but I don't agree. There is no frequency drop at 16kHz, but all the frequencies start to exponentially drop at around 12kHz. Maybe a bad tape transfer ? What do you experts think ?

As taken from the readme file


Date : 28. April 1982
Venue: Festhalle, Frankfurt, Germany
Band : Queen

Lineage : AUD > master > low gen > CD > WAV > FLAC

Tracklist :

Disc 1:
1. Flash
2. The Hero
3. Tie Your Mother Down
4. Action This Day
6. Play The Game
7. Somebody To Love
8. Liar
9. Love Of My Life
10. Save Me
11. Get Down Make Love
12. GUitar Solo

Disc 2:
1. Under Pressure
2. Fat Bottomed Girls
3. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
4. Back Chat
5. Bohemian Rhapsody
6. Now I'm Here
7. Dragon Attack
8. Now I'm Here (reprise)
9. Another One Bites The Dust
10. Sheer Heart Attack
11. We Will Rock You
12. We Are The Champions
13. God Save The Queen

"Hello Frankfurt. How do you do you motherfuckers ?"
"I must say every time we come to Frankfurt you fuckers are wild"
"You wanna hear it. You don't wanna hear it ? If you don't wanna hear it
fucking go home" :-)

Review from queenlive.ca

Single-camera pro footage of three songs from this concert were shown on a TV
special on the band called "Musik Scene": Flash, The Hero, and the last half
of Tie Your Mother Down. After his first line of The Hero, Freddie is seen
throwing a giant hat back into the audience. Part of We Are The Champions
from the May 12 concert in Vienna was also shown on this special.

Before Staying Power, Freddie asks the audience if they want to hear songs off
the newly-recorded album. "The damn thing, you wanna hear it? You're gonna
hear it." There is a mixed reaction, and Freddie replies, "If you don't wanna
hear it, fuckin' go home!" This classic speech inspired the title of a bootleg
of the show.

This is the last performance of Liar in its entirety. The band decided to
focus closely on their more recent material, as they had brought Back Chat
into the set, and would soon introduce Body Language as well. Part of Liar
would be resurrected for the Works tour as part of a medley of older songs.

Contrary to what some sources may report, there was no second night in
Frankfurt on April 29. If there was, the first picture most likely would have
read "28 & 29.4"

Review from queenbootlegs.nl

Very nice concert from Frankfurt 1982 during the Hot Space Tour. The sound
quality is Excellent and very enjoyable! It has tape speed problems as the
pitch is runs too fast during the whole recording. Some parts are faster than
other parts. The name of the bootleg comes from a speech from Freddie before
the start of Staying Power. There is one very small cut almost at the end of
Now I'm Here (Reprise). I think the tape was running out, but otherwise
complete concert. Very nice Back Chat Intro to Bohemian Rhapsody and wonderful
performances of Action This Day and Liar.



Please IGNORE ALL the comments about the speed !
THIS RECORDING RUNS AT THE CORRECT SPEED !!!!

best performances during the Hot Space tour IMO. In Staying Power, Freddie
sings Fucking Power instead. Tracklist is the same as Milton Keynes.

Convert to lossy only for personal use. If this gets shared in any form of

download only the interview from rapid and for the rest wait for the mediafire upload.
The interview is in the first file.

And the last recording for this year comes from a recently shared show

29. October 1982 - Sapporo, Japan


Queen
Sapporo, Japan
Hokkaidoritso Sangyo Kyoshinakaji
October 29, 1982


This is a mix of two bootlegs from this show to create what seems to be the definitive version. The bulk of it is from the "Live In Japan 1982.10.29" (BGS) silver, and the gaps are filled in with "Hot Space In Cold Place" (Breakdown). The former is from a pre-LP tape, and its sound quality is truly excellent. About 1:30 is added to beginning of show from the Breakdown version, as well as Love Of My Life, Get Down Make Love, Body Language, Under Pressure, and Tie Your Mother Down. I have sped up the Breakdown version 1/3 of a semitone, and brought the volume down 30%.


Lineage:
Live In Japan 1982.10.29" (BGS) silver > WAV (EAC) > FLAC (Frontend level 8) > WAV > FLAC (Frontend level 8)
"Hot Space In Cold Place" (Breakdown) > CDR (x) > WAV > GoldWave (pitch/speed correction, volume adjusted) > FLAC (Frontend level 8)


Disc 1:
1. Flash (intro)
2. Rock It
3. We Will Rock You (fast)
4. Action This Day
5. Play The Game
6. Calling All Girls
7. Now I'm Here
8. Put Out The Fire
9. Dragon Attack
10. Now I'm Here (reprise)
11. Love Of My Life
12. Teo Torriatte


Disc 2:
1. Get Down Make Love
2. Guitar solo
3. Body Language
4. Under Pressure
5. Fat Bottomed Girls
6. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
7. Death On Two Legs (intro)
8. Bohemian Rhapsody
9. Tie Your Mother Down
10. Another One Bites The Dust
11. We Will Rock You
12. We Are The Champions
13. God Save The Queen



Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered. This recording should not made available at Queenzone or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format.


Enjoy!

Thanks for the Rapidshare links.
I certainly appreciate them more than mediafire as I feel it's worth finding the money to pay for an account so I can have multiple downloads and fast speeeds.

Just a question about Fukuoka: reading this page:

http://www.queenlive.ca/queen/82-10-19.htm

it seems that We are the champions and God save the Queen (cut) from Live USA 2 are from the 19, but in this wonderful release the concert stops right after Tie your mother down... Who is wrong? :-) Thanks in advance! :-)
