Has anyone been to a live queen show in the 1971-1979 period? How was it, how do you remember it?
Do you agree that the shows between 1982 and 1986 were less spectacular, although more gigantic?
By the way, can I find somewhere a complete video of the March 31st 1974 performance at the Rainbow?

what does he play? with who? when? where?
(sorry, except for queen, and some 60s-70s musicians/bands I don't know much about rock players. I am especially not good at what is done these days)

I have it.
It has 7 songs.
On the back of the CD, it says:
"The Players
Freddie Mercury
Brian May
John Deacon
Rodger Taylor"

They spelled Roger's name wrong!

If you go to the associated links on the home page, there's a guy in Peru -Magicvision who has loads of VCDs (if you've got a relatively new dvd it will play)including the Rainbow concert and the Hammersmith X-Mas show in total. They cost me $40.00 £20.00 for both. It took a few weeks to get from there to England but hey well worth it.
As for them live absolutly brilliant-charismatic (posted this last night on another thread). I would love to hear the support slot to Mott the Hoople again if there's a boot of it....please.
Birmingham Odeon 75, Hyde Park 76, Stafford 77, 78, NEC79 All xcelent shows. Hope first Para is of help.

I saw the WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS tour in '77.Awesome show! I've seen some pretty good r'r shows THE WHO,ZEP,CLASH,KINKS etc.I thought Queen were every bit as good as these groups.Queens'musical genius was amazing-very tight.Combine this with the bands' showmanship & you have a killer show.I know i'm a middle aged old fart now but I can't of many of todays' bands that are as talented and as original as QUEEN in the 70's.It's all corporate now and all about the money.QUEEN were true artist. Just my opinion of course.

tymd, glad to have your point of view on the matter.
I was 3 when Freddie died, and I wondered if it was just my impression, that Queen in the 70s is something exceptional.

My first Queen concert was December 8, 1978. It was my first concert and I will never forget it. It was thrilling and scary at the same time. Scary because I was only 12 and I was surrounded by a bunch of people doing drugs,which was something I had never been around before. I also saw them in '80 and '82. My favourite show was the one in 1980. It was the Game tour and it was the number one album in the USA and I had better seats than the one in '78. The show in '82 had Billy Squier opening the show and all my friends were there to see him. Well after the show they were all raving about how incredible Queen were and they didn't remember anything about Squier. Oh to be young again.
