Queen
Zürich, Switzerland
Hallenstadion
February 4, 1979


To commemorate the 40th anniversary of this show (only a week late, but hopefully worth the wait), this is very likely going to be the definitive version of it. This audience tape isn't far from the master - likely a first or second gen copy. This seems to be the copy that was sent off to bootleggers over 25 years ago (only It's Late ended up on the "Absolutely Rare" LP, as a great sounding version of It's Late absolutely was rare at the time). Inferior copies of the 90 minute tape subsequently circulated.

There are tiny cuts in a few songs that are certainly on the master tape, as it sounds like the microphone cable being jiggled. I've left them intact so as not to disturb the tempo of the song.

A pro shot video of the last two songs came out last year, and I have included an audio rip of them as well.

In lieu of an announcement about a Live Killers box set, hopefully this will fill the palette in the meantime.

Thanks to Ernst from www.queenonstage.com for the tape, and to the taper, whoever you are !

Enjoy, keep it lossless, and do not bootleg !

Also - another transfer of this tape has circulated for a little while, but it was overblown and was missing 30 seconds of Brighton Rock. Everyone should grab this.

Yesterday I was thinking about all those 40th anniversary tapes that are possible to appear...
And now Bob gives us another upgrade of a great 79 show.

Thanks so much to everyone involved

This won't be reflected on this week's cheque, but next week's. ;)
