What do we all think was Queen's best tour. This means, as far as performance wise. What was your favorite tour?

A DAy at the Races tour. Fantastic setlists and performances.

I saw them on the JAZZ and GAME tours but would have loved to have seen them on the NOTW tour. That's my personal favorite!

The Day the Races Tour used to be my favorite but Freddie's live voice wasnt very powerful then plus it was a couple years after he first got the nodules, so he didnt really know how to deal with them yet. The crazy tour, hot space tour, and game tour (also '81) are my favorites. In my opinion, the worst tours were The Jazz tour and the Works Tour

I saw the "a day at the races"  tour,  the jazz tour,  the "the game' tour,  the 'hot space " tour,  and the '  a day at the races" will stay in my mind forever.  I've missed the "  news of the world"  tour,  but i saw it from Houston live,  i think that would have been the best.  The jazz tour was huge and crazy,  the game one was very good,  freddie's voice was very good,  and the "hot space"  one was very good too,  sound quality,  freddie's voice was strong,  but among all,  the first queen concert i've seen:  " a day at the races"  tour  was fantastic,  and had been classified the best Montreal show that Queen have made,  better than the " live in Montreal".  excuse my english.

I was 10 in 1986 so am in absolutely no position to answer this question (as I never actually went to a Queen gig) anyone else who have never seen Queen live cant answer either.

I went on 7 Queen tours 1977 - 1986, and were different and brilliant in their own way, the light show in 84 was fantastic, as was the wall of lights in 79, but my first Queen show in the poxy Bingley Hall 1977 will always stand out, such fantastic memories.

Right on.  Did you take any pictures at the shows or preserve the memories otherwise?  I'd like to hear all about Bingley particularly.

In the 1970s and early 80s it was forbidden to take photo's at most concerts,  people used to smuggle camera's in,  but if you got caught you'd loose your camera,  so i never bothered.
I did a report on the Bingley hall show for ' Queen Concerts '  a while ago, you can read it here

Cool, I've read that one before.  How lucky you are to have been there.
