I heard that there was a clip of Queen performing "Imagine" at one of their concerts on December 9, 1980. Does anyone have a sound clip of this ,more specifically a music matchbox one? lol

Oh and I tried to find it in the forum and the search button isn't working for me for some reason.

This song has been shared a couple a days ago. There is no video footage (I believe), just audio (comes from bootlegs).

They performed the song in London, Frankfurt and Munich.

Thank you for that link, I'll download it asap. I've always loved Freddie's version of Imagine, or rather his cover of it. I'm not sure from which concert the good one I've got is from (perhaps the same one as the link you've provided) but on that one I must say I think Freddie's rendition of the song, his vocals, are better than Lennon's...and I know to some people that's almost blasphemous, but anyway, I just think Freddie's vocals are of a better quality than Lennon's.

Take your Queen/Freddie blinkers off, to say that Queens version of Imagine is better than the original is simply laughable
