I'm happy to share the story with you.

Freddie fell down some stairs, and had to stay at the piano for the rest of the gig!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed that.

Ah yes, the famous incident in Hannover 1984. Indeed, the setlist was shortened and he had to sit the rest of the show. Having said that, he sung one of the most passionate versions of Boh Rhap ever, with beautiful low notes.

Unfortunately, during the fall, Freddie crushed the tape recorder so the show never got recorded.

Untrue, surprisingly.

Yes, this show exists on record. Freddie fell down after Hammer to Fall, and after some discussion, the band decided to cut out Crazy Little Thing, Radio Ga Ga and the first encore, and play Bo Rhap, WWRY, and WATC to end the show in a hurry (but still give the fans three songs that they inevitably came expecting to hear). Freddie remained seated at the piano the whole time (I haven't heard this bootleg for some time, but I seem to recall there being no encore break after Bo Rhap), and was rushed to the hospital after the show.

He had previously ruptured the ligaments in his knee a few months before that

John referred to it in his fan club letter at the time.

The line was something simple like 'Freddie hurt his leg again on stage the other night and we had to cut the show short'.
