 Correct. The picture was published in the 'Gluttons For Punishment' book. I don't have that book any more. Don't remember the date....

Bob

I have that picture in a magazine that came out in 2008!

Underneath the picture reads: "Queen - Test your sound for the first show "

And then he says:

Roger Taylor started the sound check, Brian and Freddie then came and began to play Somebody To Love without John Deacon, then Rock It!

Greetings! =)

In conclucion:

That image Could Be the soundcheck in Argentina:

Buenos Aires 28/02/1981
Mar Del Plata 04/03/1981
Rosario 03/06/1981

I think that is Buenos Aires 28/02/1981!

If it says the "first" show, then I guess we have 2-28-81.  Thanks everyone for the input !

Damn, you're right... Roger is wearing the same shirt as in the other soundcheck pics.  Thanks for clarifying.

If so, then it's North America, not South America.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
