I´ve watch "Champions of the world" time ago, but I´d like to know (someone must know here)if the part of a concert where Freddie is wearing a hat (mexican hat) is from a presentation given in Mexico. I don´t know if it was recorded (did they use to record everything?)
And what about that famous photo that appear in the Made in Heaven album: Fredddie (wearing that hat again) & Roger. Where was it taken, do you know?
Finally, do someone have material from the Queen shows given in Central America or México?

Thank you very much.

From Mexico (reallyy???) a great Queen fan.

I live in Monterrey, actually. I talked to a friend of mine who tried to locate that footage a few years ago with a friend and she told me something about those tapes being in possesion of some collector who wouldn't let them go (maybe someone from the TV or radio station??, just a guess).

We just talked about it for a while but she managed to discourage me to start my own search. She didn't give me a lot of details, though...

How much do you think they can sell 'em?


They won't sell it otherwise other Queen fans/collectors would have had it (It's well known that some Monterrey footage exists)

Thank you for the welcome Wybren™!

About the mexican concerts...well, yes there´s only audio.

If anyone knows something new about this...would be great.

Wiley, did you continue with that search?I wonder if we could find that video...someday.

Take care!
