Sao Paolo, Brazil 1981

All four are playing at their absolute peak and especially Freddie gives his best vocal live-performances ever heard!

My choice is Sao Paolo 1981 as well.

Hard to choose one, but this stands out. Also Milton Keynes 1982, Earl's Court 1977, Buenos Aires 1981 and Mannheim 1986.

It helps that, of course, these concerts are available in an excellent quality. We should get all concerts in such a quality and then we could decide really.

Wembley 86 for ever!!!
And can i ask something? Before 1986, did Queen ever perform again in the same stadium? I am asking because a friend of mine insists that Queen had a gig in Wembley in 70s....

Seattle '77, Houston '77 and..Montreal '78



And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

The only Wembley stadium appearances of Queen were 1985 Live Aid and twice in 1986. The others were Wembley Arena (indoors).

Just burned the sound file from Montreal on the WWRY DVD. The sound there is SOOOOO much better than Wembley!

Can't wait to see how the sound comes out for Milton Keynes.....Montreal just jams!!!

What? The drums sound like crap.

My top ten:

Manchester 11-26-75
Glasgow 5-30-77
New York 12-2-77
Copenhagen 4-13-78
Newcastle 12-4-79
Oakland 7-14-80
Sao Paulo 3-20-81
Tokyo 5-9-85
Budapest 7-27-86
Knebworth 8-9-86

Most of these are listened to a monthly basis here. I'm on my second run of Knebworth this week. I just love that show.

Hammersmith '79 (Concert for Kamupuchea) has always been my favorite. Great setlist, wonderful performances and early versions of CLTCL and Save Me. Great show.

My favourite concert is definitively at Wembley stadium. I strarted to like Queen watcing the video 13 years ago.

I'm from Portugal and in my first visit to London I dragged all my family to visit the stadium. They didn't want to go, but in the end they loved.

To me the Magic Tour really means to me magic. If I was Bill Gates I would buy a Magic Tour stage with all the equipments. LOL

I think my favourite concert is Rainbow 1974. I think they did the best performance of Killer Queen ever! Also a beautiful version of White Queen!

"What? The drums sound like crap."

You're absolutely right! The drums sound crap! The drums hadn't that round sound, the toms were hollow, so there is no nice round sound! The worst drumkit Roger ever had!!! I think the best he ever had, was during A Day at the Races-tour and the one during the Hot Space tour!

Wow! The drums are crap in Montreal???
Another proof of how man can not argue about taste, I guess... I realy dig the drumsound from that era! ;-) (I'm not saying it's the best, but I realy like it...)
Fierce, explosive...
