Only 5?  Yikes..

Since you've already picked Newcastle..

Tokyo 5-1-75, Boston 1-30-76, Boston 2-9-77, Copenhagen 4-13-78, Buenos Aires 3-8-81.

Mercury's voice isn't in great shape on the 77 show, but it's by far the best-sounding audience recording of the year.  The rest are all stellar performances.

Montreal '78 was great as well, both performance-wise and sound quality.


Any way the wind blows...

Mannheim 1986 and Chicago/Vancouver 1978 are also great (excellent shows overall, and great quality)!
