Queen
Newcastle, UK
City Hall
December 3, 1979


edit - an even better version is here:

This is a slight upgrade of the first night in Newcastle. It may be a tape generation better, and it has an extra few seconds of tape after Don't Stop Me Now. It also doesn't have the hiss reduction treatment heard on the more common copy. It's still a bit muffled, but it's audible.

Thanks to Peter Wiley for sending our pal Gregsynth his tape collection, and of course to whoever taped the show - likely a member of the Royal Family of superfans, as evidenced by the usual tricks found on their recordings:

-panning off to one side near the end of Somebody To Love
-long analog fade out/in near the end of the guitar solo
-tape is slowed down between Spread Your Wings and the aforementioned cut (corrected here)
-sudden volume increases in Sheer Heart Attack (corrected here)

Most of these issues are on previous circulating copies.

This is the only known tape of Queen opening with Let Me Entertain You. Mercury and the band are in top form.

Enjoy, keep it lossless, and do not bootleg !



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Thank you :)

A show generally disregarded compared to the next night but a smoking hot one in my opinion. :)

You're not wrong! This show is slightly underrated compared to the more famous 2nd night. Freddie sounds amazing on this show and this show needs some love!

Despite the recording quality - this is a great show!



I always knew I was a star And now, the rest of the world seems to agree with me-Freddie Mercury

Only the first song is really muffled but the rest of the recording sounds quite decent. Still hissy and distant but a solid B- in my opinion.

Yeah I'd give it a B- overall, just like the new Glasgow 1979 copy.
