As lots of fans, I always think that it's so difficult to decide the best live concert. If I dare to choose one, Hammersmith'79 would be the best from various viewpoints. Personally, there are some or more concerts I think to be tied with Hammy'79 in some ways or nearly the best among the ones I've known, though. And imho, every Queen live makes me feel that the more I listen to it the more I want to listen to it.

I much preferred Hammy Odeon 1975. Why? Because as a live spectacle they had to rely more of the music and less of the lights. And the set list was more to my liking, me being an old skool Queen fan. Thats my twopence worth.

Just One??

Montreal '78


And as the seasons turn the days to years

She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers

The days grow lonely for the dancing Queen

And now she dances only in her dreams...

What is the criteria?

Freddie's vocal range? His stage presence and ability to communicate? Brian's confidence? Audience interaction? The overall vibe? The number of people to create such a vibe?

This kind of question is completely relative. One could say Rio 85 because the number of people, Hammersmith 79 because of Freddie's range (although he was less cracky in Glasgow in Newcastle earlier in the month), Houston 77 because of its demand, Montreal 78 because of its audience, Budapest 86 because it was groundbreaking, Wembley 86 because it's so represented, or Auckland 85 because Freddie was piss drunk and surely put in a unique performance as a result.

The answer: you can't pick one or two.

Warsaw '82. That was the best fucking show ever. It's in the archives, but Brian's been a bitch and does not want to realease it. Surprise. Bootleg is fantastic, even though the quality of the recording is not even near that of a soundboard. It's a must have, let me tell you.

Magic tour
Knebowroth- Best AOBTD, Brian is on fire, Radio Ga Ga is great.
Mannhiem-Bo rhap is one of the better sounding in Magic tour, and the band is in Key and had a good time.
Vienna(both nights)- just for really great sounding Bootlegs, around average performance's.
Lieden- not such great sound, but great crowds and the band was having fun, full version of Friends will be friends.
