I believe they once performed a version of WATC that was over eight minutes long during one of their Magic tour shows. I'm not sure which one. Marbella perhaps? Anyway, it happened when Freddie ran off stage to get his crown and robe and got lost in the backstage hallways. The rest of the band just kept playing, waiting for Freddie to show up again. I believe Spike finally went and got him, after a not-so-subtle hint from Roger (throwing a cymbal at him!).

As for Roger falling off stage, that happened at every show, the clumsy fucker. He never trahsed his drumkit, though, that's a lie.

Yes, I just noticed you answered this same question in the other forum! Well, it's a unique piece of Queen history every fan should about, so it doesn't hurt to repeat it, does it? ;)

Not at all, although there are differing reports on what exactly Spike did - it may have looked like he did a little soft-shoe dance, but I think he was just slipping a bit when running to get Freddie.

And Roger did actually trash his drum kit in a tribute to Keith Moon, but that was some time in 1978 after Moonie died.

Does Roger not trash his drum kit at the end of the Rainbow show in 1974?

Also, the one at the Fredddie Tribute went on for while...
