Hi all,
   not sure if this is really a serious discussion but i'm sure there are some out there that are interested in stage set-ups and rigs etc as well as the music. Having just watched Rainbow 1974, I noticed during Rogers solo in 'Son and Daughter', behind his head were the large silver letters  '..ue..'. I have seen a large Queen logo on a poster before from about the same period. Was this present during the whole 'Sheer heart attack' tour or just for the Rainbow. Not very musical but I know but still.....

The logo was there for the whole of the 'Sheer Heart Attack' UK tour in 1974. It was illuminated for the encore of 'Big Spender', 'Modern Times Rock N' Roll, 'Jailhouse Rock' and 'God Save The Queen'.

Interesting. Can we assume that there is a video to prove it ? :-)
