Given a good view of stage, I would choose one of the concerts in Sau Paulo, Brazil in 1981. I bet the passion and energy in that stadium was off the charts!

I would be brave and pick a News of the World or
Day At the Races show in Dallas, my home town, because I haven't ever heard those shows and I love those two tours best(in terms of songs played).

That being said, if I was to choose a concert I am more familiar with, I would choose between either Earl's Court '77 or Live Aid. I would rather see a complete Queen show, but at the same time, as a true Queen conniseur I would love to see what was probably their greatest career moment. I'm sure ultimately Earl's Court would win.

Probably the one they did in Charleston in 1980, cause it would have been fucking AWESOME to see Queen in South Carolina..;-)

That's not very nice. I happen to be perfectly well aquainted with my Father as it happens.

Stafford, Bingley Hall 1977, I wasnt even born but Its local to me and my uncles went. They played my local theatre in 1973 when they were starting out. Victoria Hall in Hanley, Stoke on Trent.
But I heard Bingley Hall was good.

Either of the Nov 74 Rainbow shows on the Sheer Heart Attack tour. Or any of the Hammersmith shows on ANATO 75 tour. Thankfully one from each tour as been filmed for posterity and I can view them again and again and again! Heaven.

9 January 1971. I would introduce myself to Brian, Roger and Freddie and tell them I'm a bassplayer. I would've been hired and I'd be playing with Queen & Paul Rodgers now

Either Houston '77 or Knebworth '86 (only if I knew in advance this would be their last concert).
