I heard that Chinese Torture was played on 1986 tour in guitar solos - BUT I don't remember which gig it was - do you know something about this correctly?



Part of Back Chat Improvisation was played in mid-1981 - do you remember what concert it was?



Now I'm lissening Vancouver 1978,dec,14 - in Jam after Brighton Rock (after Drum's and Guitar's solo) they played something that seems to be almodt Dragon Attack - I am so thrilled.



And when did Brian played riff from I Go Crazy? Sorry, I can't remember, but it definitely was somewhere back in 1984



Do you know something about these or about anothers perfomings - this infirmation is very interesting, I hope not only for me

The Under Pressure single was released October 26, 1981. That's before the Montreal concerts.

Several songs from the JAZZ album were played before the November 14, 1978 release date. I saw them on that date and didn't know any of those tunes until I bought the album two days later. Bicycle Race and Fat Bottomed Girls was just released so I knew those but the rest were unknown.

Save Me, it was played during the Crazy Tour, and on the final gig (Hammersmith'79) Freddie announced it was gonna be their next single.

C-Lebrity was played in April 2008 and released in September...

Say It's Not True was played live in 2003 and released in 2008.. I guess that's a rare exception.

You can find these answers on my website in the "songs" section.

Thank you, Sir GH



I looked your site - it's well done , I mean it is very interesting [img=/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif][/img]



I did not find the song section, but there are so usefull material, so I don't miss it [img=/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif][/img]



About WHY I am asking this question



When the songs are live-played, they are changing through the years, then:



1) the song is just composed and the group play it close to the record - Freddie particularly can hit lot of high notes and Roger did not play very fast at beginning (Sheer Heart Attack, Tie Your Mother Down, Liar)



2) They don't try to play the song, they just enjoy the song, it sounds easely, with nice tempo



3) then comes time for experiments - improvisations (Brians and Freddies both), for bright Freddies example - Another One Bites Your Balls and Fucking Power or Spread Your Legs, and Brian begins Now I'm Here in mid-80 in a different way



4) they can miss the song, I mean, it can became boring, then the song is getting removed from the set or, when it can not, sometimes this song sound not interesting - I don't remember bright examples, but it definitely was. (well, it always comes to everybody).



Freddie sad it always should came something new not to became boring - I agree with him, no doubt. I'm a musician and time after time I replace the songs in my set, then after few months I play them again. (Of course, you always have to study for new songs). I think, this is the reason Queen played some early stuff in 1984-85



Anyway, I enjoy every concert and wish you the same
