Did Queen ever perform in Toronto.. at Exhibition Place or other? If so, anyone know the date? And more so, is there a recording/bootleg out there (dvd or audio) wise?

They played at CNE Stadium in 1980 and there is a recording of it.
They also played at Maple Leaf Gardens in '77,'78 and '82

They did 1 night on the Day at the Races and News tours at Maple Leaf Gardens, two on the Jazz and Jot Space tours, and for The Game tour, they did indeed play at Exhibition Stadium.  I bought $10 scalpers for $30 and thought I scored floor seats.  Wrong.  In the greandstand, about 10 miles from the stage.  Too far to enjoy it, but I had front row for the News show, and it changed my life.

There are recordings of three of the shows, and plenty of pictures.  Have a look on my website.

They've all been shared here.  Have you used bit-torrent before?
