I know that some of you might have heard a lot more concerts than others i'm just intrigued to know which one is your favourite and why?

My favourite is Earls court 77 for the great setlist great sound and the overall concert i general.

There's a good vibe between the band and in my opinion catching them on top form my fave song from it was "white queen" just brilliant.

I can't believe I am answering this but, mine would have to be 24 July 1982 at the Philadelphia Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA my very first concert and the last time I saw Queen. Everything else is a close second.

Earls Court is pretty good, and from what I've heard so far (only listened to a likkle of it) Knebworth 86 is top notch as well.

Kalamazoo 1978 without a doubt

I actually drove a hour to Western Michigan Uni to to listen to a bootleg (ok sounding) from this show and see quite a few pictures that a college student who was hired via the school to help with the crew, the guy actully kept all the towels the band used and never washed them, about 9 in all.

Yes, live aid had me excited!!!!!!!!!!
But actually, the one that excited me the most was the Tribute Concert... i dont know why though.. maybe because the crowd was really into it and everything

imo, EARL'S COURT in many ways, I looooove it!
Its set list is pretty good and from the biginning to the end, all of the band performances are so fantastic. Freddie's vocal solo between White Man and Prophet's Song and Rock'n'Roll medley are awesome. Besides I love his banters of that day so much. I envy its audience and their warm rapport!!!(i.e. between Queen and them)

Kampuchea Concert Hammy '79 is also awesome, imo. Freddie was so hot and especially he was rampageous during SHA. I was so astounded when I saw it first.

I also haven't seen any Queen concert, except on DVD or video...I do wish I had been born earlier and been there.
I love both 'album Queen' and 'live Queen'. :)

Sao Paolo 1981!!!

A chemistry that evening that was rare, even for Queen. All members are right on top and Freddie has one of his best nights. And he KNOWS it! Imagine Milton Keynes with just a little even móre.

My favorite shows were the two I attended in Providence, RI in 1978 and again in 1980. As far as bootlegs? I love Montreal, Toronto and Chicago from December of 78. They were in the middle of the tour and you can tell by those shows they were really on fire at that point. Outstanding performances!!!

Sao Paulo (pity Brian fucked up solo in STL- that would be the best version EVER!)
Hammersmith'79
Golders Green is also great, especially for such a young band
Wembley Arena'80 (MUSTAPHA is amazing!!!)
