I think they are:
-Rock it (full version), I know only the Buenos Aires version (is it the unique one??)
-Flash medley (incl.Battle and Vultans theme)
-Life is real, I know two versions in New Jersey and Chicago
-Lazing on the sunday a.
-Great king Rat (full vers.)

I think there are also few versions of Teo Toriatte and Need your lovin tonight.
Does anyone indicate me something else?

PS: Does exist any recording or a concrete evidence of Sleeping on the sidewalk live? I heard they performed once or twice in 1977.

How about Las Palabras... Brian plays a very short bit of it on Milton Keynes show just before they do LOML.

This was standard during the whole Hot Space 'World Tour' (so not the UK leg)


I knew that during the HS tour the song was played in a cut form, without intro, such a hard piece for the ouverture of the concert.

I must add that Put out the fire was played not many times, I think only in some Japan gigs.

Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon isn't difficult to be found on the Internet, but it was played very few times because the band though that it didn't work fine on stage.
Sleeping On a Sidewalk was never played live, according to Greg Brooks. But THIS MONTH Brian, Roger and guests played it on Russia, for a TV show, I think. This is not the same, but it's a live version... :-)

Teo Torriate was played on pratically all Queen concerts in Japan from 1976 to 1985 (after 85 they never played there again). I think there's only one or two rare exceptions. But they NEVER played it on any other country, what explains the "rare" nature of a live performance of this song.


I assume that you know this, but Teo Torriate was not played during the 1976 tour or the 1985 tour.

It was not for TV, it was for the after-party show. For TV they played Rock You and Champions.

It was in Paris. Very short and musically it was KYA's intro, but lyrically he sang some lines.

When I saw Queen in 82 in Philadelphia they opened the show w/ Rock It. A single spot picked up Freddie as he sang the intro. Roger joined in on the repeat just like the album. They plowed through it, & after the solo worked into WWRY fast. I never heard another version of it. All my other HS shows open like MK does.

Sleeping On The Sidewalk, off Course.
They Play This Once. In November, 1977, In U. S. A., But The song didn't work well, so they drop the song of the set.

I could be wrong when I said that, but I remember of reading in Queen Live that they always played Teo Torriate in the japanese tours after it was composed, except one night.


I'm sure. Just check the 1976 or 1985 bootlegs from this site www.queenbootlegs.com. Teo Torriate is played on none of them.

An old Queen trading friend from California told me a story once about a show he saw in the mid 70's (I'm thinking 1976/77) where some guy in the audience kept shouting out for 'The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke' and finally, to shut him up presumably, Freddie broke into an impromptu ver. of the tune..not sure if anyone else joined in..it was short, but he says a bit of it was played! If the story is true, that might take the prize for rarest Queen song ever performed live!

Procession, live versión is rare no isn't? and one more question there was a special reason when Queen played Inmigrant Song (you know, how they played Imagine)

and who did sing it? Fred?



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...

Very interesting! Do u have the recording of Dear Friends (and/or Mull of K., even if I was referring to proper Queen songs)? Is it only sung "a cappella" or with piano?

Yes, that's right, not only because of bootlegs, but just because they didn't played it! :) But Fred sang some lines from 'Mustapha' during some show on the Japanese part of this tour.
