From Champions of the World. Two Concert from 1979 during WWRY.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhLRpQY-e_0

First at 1:23 with Fred wearing the bananas on Superman. shoot from behind. I don't know if the Superman-gag was done before the Japan 1979 tour. Saw it first on the Tokyo-video. So it might be another Japan concert?

Second at 1:50 with the yellow towel? Maybe Paris, because no WWRY (slow) performance is on the Paris-Video-Bootlegs.

Someone an idea?

As for yellow towel it's most likely from the second night in Paris on February 28, 1979.

It definitely isn't Alexandra Palace.  This documentary was broadcast on TV the day before the Alexandra Palace concert (12-21-79), so it is technically impossible..

And as for Freddie on Superman with bananas at 1:23 I think it's most likely from some concert in Japan in April / May 1979 because it seems there are Japanese people in the audience against Freddie.

Yeah I also thought that it could be another concert from the Japan-Tour. Would be nice to know which date and if there is more filmed from that concert. Maybe we will find out on an offical Live Killers DVD...Haha (with a lot of sarcasm ;)
