Why is the setlist from those concerts on the WWRY video do different from the Milton Keynes DVD. And it's not just Milton Keynes, either. From the boots I've heard/seen from the tour its different as well. As is the lightning rig. Why is this? Any particular reason?

"Rock you"-Concert in Montreal 1981 was part of their Game World Tour, Milton Keynes was part of their Hot Space-Tour in 1982...

Guess they just wanted to do it it slightly different for the first time... :-))

Dragon Attack
Love Of My Life

If it is from The Game tour, why is Under Pressure in the set list?

I doubt that they were playing new material before it was released because Under Pressure was a jam session during the making of Hot Space, no?

The "Game Tour" officialy ended after South America in 1981... Right! They just wanted to film a concert/show at this time to be shown in cinemas in Spring 1982...

...and it just happend that "Under Pressure" was already recorded in the studio at the time this show in Montreal was filmed... and I guess they couldn´t resist playing it live! :-))

...so you may call it the small "Under Pressure Canadian Tour 1981"!
Never understood why they didn´t play "Soul Brother" live there though... :-))

Under Pressure did come from a jam session during the Hot Space recordings...which started in late 1981. however it was released in October (I think) 1981, a month before this gig.
