This is it.
The last year.
The last year when Queen appeared on stage as Freddie Mercury (vocals, piano, guitar), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar, backing vocals ???) , Roger Taylor (drums, backing vocals) and an unofficial member Spike Edney (keyboards, backing vocals, guitar).

This was the longest and most expensive Queen tour ever. They even broke some rules when they decided to make a concert in a communist country - in Nepstadion in Budapest, Hungary. I've read some rumours that they planned to visit also Czechoslovakia and even USSR but I don't know if it's true.


I have chosen these concerts :

1986-06-21 - Maimarktgelände, Mannheim, Germany
1986-07-09 - St. James Park, Newcastle, UK
1986-07-21 - Vienna, Austria
1986-07-22 - Vienna, Austria
1986-08-09 - Knebworth Park, Stevenage

Every single concert is in a separate post in this thread

Date : 21. June 1986
Venue : Maimarktgelände, Mannheim, Germany
Lineage : SBD > FM > ? > CD(x) > WAV > FLAC


There are other sources available for this concert, all come from different recordings of the radio broadcast, so all are about the same (excellent) quality.
I was thinking for a long time if I should upload this boot or the 1st gen recording which was shared here not so long before, and I have decided for this one.


Here are the links :

Originally I've been told that this is the Done Under Pressure In Germany, but it looks like it's another source :( Sorry for the confusion

Comments :
No surprises in the setlist. Now I'm Here (Reprise) has worse sound than the rest of the concert, so I think it comes from another source. It has almost the whole recording a very stable sound with no major problems. A funny moment during Tutti Frutti when Roger is a bit too late on the drums to start the heavier part of the song. This is the complete concert.

Date : 21. July 1986
Venue : Wiener Stadthalle, Vienna, Austria
Lineage : AUD > master tape > CD(x) > WAV > Cool Edit Pro (track re-editing, click removal on 2 tracks) > WAV > FLAC (TLH level 8, removing SBEs)


This one has been shared originally by SirGH, these are his comments :


Queen
Vienna, Austria
Stadthalle
July 21, 1986


As promised, here is the master transfer of the first night in Vienna '86.  Along with the following night, it's among the top ten live recordings of Queen.  The sound quality is simply excellent.  The audience sings Happy Birthday to Brian before Love Of My Life, prompting him to say, "I like birthdays!"  The performance is
definitely an energetic one overall, as Queen surely loved playing in Austria.  Sorry about the strange track dividing!  I didn't want to add a CDR gen and/or any SBEs, so I decided to leave it alone.


Lineage: AUD > Master > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)


Disc 1:
 1. One Vision (intro)
 2. One Vision
 3. Tie Your Mother Down
 4. In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited
 5. Seven Seas Of Rhye
 6. A Kind Of Magic
 7. Under Pressure
 8. Another One Bites The Dust
 9. Who Wants To Live Forever / I Want To Break Free
10. Impromptu
11. Guitar Solo
12. Now I'm Here
13. Love Of My Life
14. Is This The World We Created?

Disc 2:
 1. (You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care / Hello Mary Lou
 2. Tutti Frutti
 3. Bohemian Rhapsody
 4. Hammer To Fall
 5. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
 6. Radio Ga Ga
 7. We Will Rock You / Friends Will Be Friends
 8. We Are The Champions / God Save The Queen


I didn't like the strange track dividing and the few clicks so I decided to re-edit it properly, now every song is in a separate file, I hope it's OK for you :)

(I have uploaded THIS ONE CONCERT THE WHOLE WEEKEND to f*ing mediafire from my home, I hope you appreciate it !)

1.1 Intro 1:59
1.2 One Vision 3:42
1.3 Tie Your Mother Down 4:43
1.4 Seven Seas Of Rhye 1:20
1.5 Tear It Up 2:19
1.6 A Kind Of Magic 5:57

1.11 Now I'm Here 5:36
1.12 Love OF My Life 4:40
1.13 Is This The World We Created…? 3:00
2.1 You're So Square Baby I Don't Care-Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart)-Tutti Frutti 4:31
2.2 Tutti Frutti Cont. 2:05
2.3 Bohemian Rhapsody 5:25
2.4 Hammer To Fall 4:53
2.5 Mustapha Intro-Crazy Little Thing Called Love 5:26
2.6 Radio Ga Ga 6:35
2.7 We Will Rock You 4:15
2.8 Friends Will Be Friends 1:59
2.9 We Are The Champions-God Save The Queen 4:43
Total Time: 1:41:29

This is the second of two nights in Vienna for Queen. The sound quality on this is simply excellent. It's very nice to hear the Mustapha intro to Crazy Little Thing Called Love. This is one of the best Magic Tour shows in my opinion. They didn't play In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited tonight, instead they go right into Seven Seas Of Rhye after Tie Your Mother Down. This is sourced from the master cassette, so it simply can not get any better than this. 




Originally shared by jose something (our good pal Joe). He disappeared suddenly, I hope he's OK.

I have a slightly off-topic request - I have been this year in Stadthalle on the Queen + Paul Rodgers concert. I have tried to record it but I have failed, for some reason I have recorded only the first song.
In the case that somebody has recorded this concert (either audio or video) and is willing to trade it, please let me know :)

So how should I end this thread else then with the last Queen concert ?

Date : 9. August 1986
Venue : Knebworth Park, Stevenage, UK
Lineage : AUD > master > "Thank You All" (http://www.queenonstage.com/mywebpage/thankyouall.htm  ) > WAV > FLAC (level 8)

The last track is a compilation done from "Thank You All" and the old high-gen source.
In the case you already have the bootleg from the torrent, maybe the only interesting thing for you is the last track (done by SirGH, I think)

So that's all from Queen Live.

I would love to continue with other years. I could provide some concerts for 1992 (both Christmas songs by The Cross with special guest stars), some Brian May gigs from 1993 and 1998 and of course almost all QPR gigs.

However could somebody who has something which could be used for the threads for the years 1987 - 1989 contact me ?

Yep, Windows Media Player can do that. But take care of Windows Media Player. I once discovered that for some bootlegs I extracted with WMP, the resulting files were corrupted. So now I decided to stick to EAC which is known for being the best tool, and that's probably not for nothing ;o) ...



Thanks a lot Pittrek for that beautiful share, finishing with the Knebworth show, this one is a should-have anyone, if only for the part of history it represents ! If you had to download only 5 shows from Queen, this one should be among them. But of course every shows share here by Pittrek are important as they are probably the best versions you'll get to hear (at the present time) of these shows, at least that's why Pittrek worked that hard on that.  

Let's have a loud THANK YOU for this wonderful work, that took several months only for the pleasure of Queenzoners. Dedication to quality and kindness, that's really nice from you. so, THANK YOU !!!!
Hope we could continue the work and provide you more shows from the 1986-2005 period !


Regards,

Olivier,
Belgium.


Ps : you're right about Joe, aka Josedequeso, I was also wondering recently what happened to him. Let's hope nothing bad, if ever someone know him closely, it seems we can't contact him anymore, please tell us that everything's OK ! 








wanna trade ?

Pittrek you posted 2 times the same link in the Mannheim post: http://rapidshare.com/files/163661627/1986-06-21_d2_1.ZIP  

So just to be sure there is 9 links: 5 for disc 1 & 4 for disc 2, isn't it?

Thanks a lot!

hope you don't get bored now that the series is complete :-D


some suggestions (wrong thread, i know... but i'm lazy...)
unfortunately i only got those following concerts only as MP3, which is (enough for me but) , of course, untradeable :-(

nevertheless i'd suggest them for the most being of exellent quality
I hope that will inspire some FLAC-suppliers to UL their files :-D 

 
the Cross: 1988/03/10, UK, London, Town & Country Club,
the Cross: 1988/04/23, Germany, Dortmund, Westfalenhalle II 
the Cross: 1988/12/04, UK, London, Le Palais (not for the quality but the fact that BM & JD appear!)
the Cross: 1990/12/07, UK, London, Astoria Theater (ex quality, feat. BM)

the Cross: 1991/10/15, Germany, Munich, Circus Krone (mainly soundcheck!)
the Cross: 1991/10/22, Germany, Düsseldorf, Philipshalle
Brian May: 1991/11/21, London (collab with Jerry Lee Lewis)

if anyone is interested i could upload some MP3s for gathering some impressions....


wasn't there some tv-gigs by the cross in 1987 ? my archives leak of that, but i'm sure they're somewhere out there :-D




of course i am not well informed about those official theCross-bootlegs provided by the fan club, and if it would be ok to publish them here. 






and finally (again!) a big thank you for providing all those nice FLACs of the best concerts of our favourite band...
