Here is mine.  White Queen live, Christmas 1975.  The intrumental section that starts on 3.00 and ends around 4.20.  Total Queen. The rest of the song is fucking awesome as well, but this 1.20 seconds is something special!!

Any time i'm asked about my favourite show , Birmingham 1984 always springs to mind. It was just a sensational show from start to finish. I loved the build up

Announcer

"The Show will begin in 5 minutes"

"The show will begin in 4 minutes"

"The show will begin in 3 minutes".........................

Bang on 0 lights out and Machines intro. Just amazing

The moment when Brian started playing TYMD at the 1990 Xmas party.

It felt like the entire building started bouncing, I was in the front row, and it was the first time I'd seen Brian play a Queen song.

Good choice. One of my favourites from the Live At The Rainbow show. Makes me wish they recorded the original like this. It is classic Queen!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that Christmas 75 concert was live at the Hammersmith, not the Rainbow.

Any time they played White Man/Prophet Song.

They were so good at putting that spacy middle section in their concerts.

No, you're 100% correct. I just didn't word it properly. I meant to say that I have the Rainbow gig and they play a similar version of White Queen as to the one mentioned here. :)

OK.  I thought I might have gotten the gig wrong all this time :D

whenever Brian started his guitar solo:
we always looked forward to that moment,not because we liked it but because thats when Keith would go and get the beers in for us from the beer tent coz he knew he wouldnt miss anything for the next 10 minutes :-]

The piano-transition (or what the word is) between

Get Down, Make Love and The Millionaire Waltz

from Live in Houston 6/6-1977. GREAT!

I admit the '74 Rainbow Version of White Queen takes my breath away every time I hear it. I wish this version had been on the album, as I regret to admit I skipped over this song by lifting up the needle on my turn table, as  kid.
The piano and guitar play between Brian and Freddie on that version is just...goosebump producing. I don't enjoy the '75 version nearly as much. Doesn't seem to have the intensity level as the Rainbow version, for me, anyhow.


It is all random

Will 'Live in Rio' ever be released in a remastered format?? I managed to pick up a copy in France on DVD but the quality is pretty crap....just like the video.  Rock in Rio Blues...........

For me it`s Stockholm 1986.
"I don`t care what do you say, I like the rain, I like. If you don`t like it - fuck you", followed by the breathtaking vocal duel. ("Wait a minute!")
And whenever The Millionaire Waltz faded into You`re My Best Friend.
