When was played "Love of my life" for the first time ?

In that bootleg sounds very fresh and new

Thanks

It was played for the first time during the NOTW US tour in 1977. I guess the first ever performance of the song was in Portland on 11/11/77, but there seems to be no recording of that show. So Houston was indeed one of the first performances.

EDIT:Oops, he was 2 seconds faster than me :-)

The first time they done it was during the American News Of The World-tour (1977). To be exactly: Portland 11.11.1977

The earliest recording of Love Of My Life live is Philadelphia 23.11.1977.

hence the fact that Freddie sings it all the way through, not the audience as they did in later years (i.e. after the release of it from Killers)

It's a beautiful version. I actually don't like it when sang by audience, sounds like a bloody football chant or something... This version is pretty beautiful, Freddie's voice is perfect, better than on record IMO...
