Did they always leave every gig, every time by Limo???

I always thought it was just the early days they did this as a sort of gimmick for some flamboyancy.

I have seen all the gigs they have given in Holland from 1980.
I always tried to get early at the venue to see the band arriving and try to catch up some soundchecking.
They always came separately in a limo. Even the last tours with Paul Rodgers they
arrived separately in three limos.

But why would they do it merely as a gimmick? They were wealthy rock stars who wouldn't have left concerts by  taxi cab. Certainly Freddie wouldn't have done so, and as for driving themselves, it may simply be more practical to take a limo than to drive oneself. I can imagine that most rock stars would take limos back to the hotel from gigs; certainly most old-style rock stars.

No, they left the Earl's Court gig in 1977 on children's tricycles.
 
After the Sun City gigs, they left the stadium in a 40-foot high Trojan Horse.

And Brian left the Budapest 86 gig in a hot air balloon. Probably.

You forgot the tunnel they dug during Brian's solo at Milton Keynes so that they could get away by one of those hand-carts...
