People often say this is one of freddie's best shows but after some closer listening I don't agree.He has some great moments but struggles a lot during 'save me' and 'we are the champions' for example.I think he had much better shows.I prefer for sure the 8/12/1980 show or Copenhagen'78. Your opions please.

I think hammy'79 is better aswell.Fred's voice reaches these higher notes easier IMHO.He struggles in Sao Paulo,also during STL!!

I think that Freddie's vocal range was best around 1981/1982. Just listen to Somebody To Love on the Live At The Bowl DVD, just incredible!

Newcastle 1979 (4.12.1979) is IMHO Freddie's best show ever.

SAO PAULO is one of the best Queen performances.

This is one of the performances from my personal top 10.

Other favorites of mine are Hammy '79, Houston '77, Montreux '78, Rainbow '74 (31 martch), and a lot more :P


Montreal, not Montreux.

In my opinion Montreal'78 is just an average Jazz tour performance. It's one of the best audience tapes of Queen from the '70ies, but Chicago, Toronto and Oakland from the same tour are IMO much better performance wise.

Roger's shouting before Dreamers Ball in Montreal 1978 made my day. Oh man, great stuff.
