I think it was played at Earl's Court concert June 7 in '77 for the last time.
It was also the last concert of "ADATR" Tour and they started News Of The World Tour from Novenber '77. From NOTW tour the setlist was somewhat changed. "Ogre Battle", "White Queen", and "Bring Back That Leroy Brown" were not contained from that tour.

Well, According to the "never wrong" Greg Brooks book Queen Live It was played at the May 13th 1978 show, but it is from Greg Brooks, and well..I don't put a LOT of faith in that book..

That's misdated from 75. The last recorded performance is indeed from 5-13-78, and I'm doubting Queen performed it again after that.

Big Spender, your info is correct, but they did throw in White Queen for the last night's sake. Also, they performed Ogre Battle at the end of the medley on 11-23-77 in Philadelphia, so perhaps they did that for the first couple weeks of the tour.

Very sorry!
According to the book, "A Concert Documentary" of Mr. Brooks, they did play it for the last time at May 13th in 78.
This was one of three concerts played at London and this night was the last one of Europe (UK) Tour '78, so I think they did it with a special intent.

Thank you!
