I was there, got there early in the morning, no toilet facilities outside of the enclosed area, back of trees are great ;) they were selling official merch' outside of the enclosed area. Soon as they started letting people in, it's the fastest you've ever seen me run to get to the front. Harvey Goldsmith went on stage & told everyone to stop running, which of course nobody listened to him.
later on there was a plastic bottle/food/rubbish fight. people throwing stuff forward, those at the front throwing it back (myself included) more stuff getting lobbed forward & back & so on. all I can say is the high ground won & I must have ended up being about 6" taller, due to all the rubbish I was standing on at the front + plastic bottles don't half hurt when they clock you in the face :(
The helicopter flew over to cheers, later Brian appeared back stage watching "Big Country" through the right hand side rear back drop curtains.
The queen set was great, I remember Brian broke a string on his black telecaster during "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" luckily it was before the Guitar solo & he had enough time to swap guitars & played the solo on his "Red Special"
After the gig, it took me about 2 hours to get out of the park, I remember just turning my car engine off, sitting on the bonnet & me add my mates singing Queen songs along to the Tape cassette player in my car, other fans stuck in the traffic joined in singing.
Originally I was not going to attend this concert, as I had already done Wembley & Manchester before on the tour, Little did I know, that it was going to be the last Queen gig with Freddie, so I'm really glad that I now decided to go.
all in all, it was a great day, even though it was a long tiring one, all my mates fell asleep on the way home, leaving me the only one awake for a good 3 hour journey home, into the early hours of the next morning.........
Joyful the sound
