Here's another pointless thread. Here's 5 very underrated shows, that I think are under-appreciated, and deserve love!

1. Buenos Aires (3/1/1981): Very nice show, with a wonderful atmosphere! It's got the first performance of Somebody To Love since the North American Game Tour, and everybody gives a great performance!

2. Hamburg (5/16/1982): Often overshadowed by later concerts (Milton Keynes, Edinburgh, Leeds), this show is a favorite of mine, (and it seems to get positive reviews on Youtube) and has an excellent all-around performance from all members! It's got an excellent version of "Action This Day," and Freddie is brilliant throughout the show!

3. Kassel (5/18/1982): Very similar to the above show! I love the "Somebody To Love!"

4. Nagoya (5/13/1985): Excellent show from the Works Tour! It's overshadowed by 5/8 and 5/9--but it's great!

5. Manchester (7/16/1986): An interesting comparison to Wembley. Everybody sounds more relaxed, it sounds like Freddie's voice was restored (it sounds cleaner than Wembley), and the atmosphere is excellent!

Add Berlin 1978 to the list. It is one of their best ever German gigs and is by far my favorite one. The band are on fire and everyone sounds very strong throughout the show. Plus, the crowd is excellent and gives the show a great atmosphere. I've come to find that this is usually not so common with Queen's German shows.


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

I wouldn't call Kassel '82 underrated. In fact, it's one of the most discussed shows of the '82 tour.

I would like to say that 3rd concert in Buenos Aires 08/03/1981 imho is more underrated that the second one.
