Where any of you here at the most famous Queen concerts??

Such as:
1) Live Aid '85
2) Wembley '86
3) Hammy '79
4) Milton Keyes '82
5) Earls Court '77

I'd love to hear the details!
Where we you seated?
Who'd you go with?
Which Queen member was having a "on" night?

Thanks

Sorry, to be at all of those, my mother would have to have given birth to me at age 12. Sorry!

Wembley 1986 - On the Friday night. Also Knebworth, which I would consider to be one of the most famous gigs simply because it was the last.

Hammersmith Odeon, Boxing Day 1979.

And it was 1000 times better than you could possibly imagine.

To turn my weary eyes for home.

I know I was sitting in the first row on the balcony, dead centre, and that my sister was with me - she got my ticket as a Christmas present. However, I cannot remember a single thing about the performance, not a note. I have listened to the bootleg and it doesn't ring any bells at all, I am cursed with a shit memory.

All I remember of Hyde Park 76 is not seeing much and the sound was very poor. IF there were 150,000 people there I was 149,999 away from the stage!!

I can remember snippets from '80 & '84 at Wembley Arena.

Earl's Court 77 - I was 18 and for the first time in London.
Zuch 79 - OK, not one of the show you mentioned but still a kick-ass gig and loud as hell. My ears still ring when I think about it.

Ok...
Guys & gals...we want details!!

What were the guys wearing?
Any interaction with the audience?
Any famous Freddie quotes at the concert?

I understand that some of these concerts were 20+ years ago... but you must understand, for us in our 20's... who were 2, and living in the USA in Queen's heyday...all we have is your details.

:) Thanks!

Was at Milton Keynes in 82, got trampled on the moment they came on stage and had to be dragged out by St Johns Ablulance folk, got my self bandaged up and went back in after about 10 mins.

Great show, Roger was on form, I remember them testing the mics around his kit before he came on and someone left the bass drum mic faded up way high, it nearly shattered my ear drums!

Was also at Wembley 86, they were all on top form, Fred had the crowd in the palm of his hand and the sound was fantastic, much better than I'd heard before.

Wasn't there a free concert at Hyde Park in '76? Or was that mentioned above?


I'm so pissed I could spit.
