I'd probably go for Hammy 1979... But with a fierce competition from few other gigs!

Easy. American leg of NOTW Tour- fall and winter 1977. Bloody brilliant.

Works- terrible drum sound, Fred USUALLY in bad shape vocally... And it's pity, as the setlist was pretty interesting!

1) Which concert is your favourite of all times?
Among the ones I know, I'd say Hammy 75
2) Which tour is your favourite of all times?
Tough one... Earlier tours are great IMO.
ANATO, ADATR, NOTW, Jazz, The Game, and even Hot Space (so much energy). Just to pick one.... I think I'll go with The Game.
3) Which song do you like most in concerts?
Now I'm Here/Dragon Attack/Now I'm Here (reprise)
4) Which song do you like least in concerts?
Get Down Make Love. What I don't like about it is the vocal improv part. I could say the same for The Prophet's Song but I love the rest of the song so much, I'll go for GDML. (BTW I love the vocal harmonies on the studio version of the song, I just hate the live version)...
5) Which tour is the worst in your opinion?
Although the earlier shows of the Works tour are significantly better, I'll go for The Works Tour...

1. Favorite Concert of all time:
Milton Keynes '82
Good setlist, a lot of songs i had not heard before. Maybe a few too many Hot Space songs, but I liked it a lot.

2. Favorite Tour of all time:
Magic Tour 1986
Great way to support A Kind Of Magic, but also has the unfortunate notoriety of being Queen's last tour as a foursome. Amazing tour, using past and present hits, and Freddie's voice is very powerful and memorable throughout the whole tour.

3. Most Favorite Song performed live:
Action This Day
Probably the worst choice, but to be honest, I enjoy listening to it. Very energectic and a million times better than the studio version.

4. Least Favorite Song performed live:
I Want To Break Free
A great song, but could have been better when performed live.

5. Worst Tour of all time:
Works Tour 1985
A lackluster tour, including the infamous Rock in Rio performance. The only great thing about Queen in 1985 was Live Aid, and I'm sure a lot of you will agree with me on that.

Copied over from QOL (interesting how Fenderek and I think alike... I'd almost taken Hammy '79 too for my favorite concert):

1) Which concert is your favourite of all times?
- probably Houston '77

2) Which tour is your favourite of all times?
- News Of The World tour - very varied set list, great performances all around

3) Which song do you like most in concerts?
- tough question... I'll go with 'It's Late'

4) Which song do you like least in concerts?
- Brian's guitar solo. Blaugh.

5) Which tour is the worst in your opinion?
- The Works, 1984 - 1985: drum sound was terrible, Freddie's voice wasn't in its best condition, though the set list was pretty varied...

1) Which concert is your favourite of all times?

I can't choose one, so it's between Copenhagen 4-13-78, Newcastle 12-4-79, and Budapest 7-27-86.

2) Which tour is your favourite of all times?

A Day At The Races or Jazz

3) Which song do you like most in concerts?

Again, I can't pick one... White Man, My Melancholy Blues, Don't Stop Me Now, Mustapha, Staying Power.

4) Which song do you like least in concerts?

Body Language

5) Which tour is the worst in your opinion?

The Works tour, because of their lack of enthusiasm and creativity (nothing compared to the early days), and because Freddie's smoking had practically destroyed his voice for most of the shows.

1) Which concert is your favourite of all times?
Sao Paolo, Brazil, 1981
2) Which tour is your favourite of all times?
1979 (Jazz/Crazy Tour)
3) Which song do you like most in concerts?
Tie Your Mother Down (with Let Me Entertain You, WWRY fast)
4) Which song do you like least in concerts?
I hate Ga Ga, but in concerts it's nice because of the audience participation - so I'd go for Friends Will Be Friends
5) Which tour is the worst in your opinion?
Has to be Works 1984...
Setlist was awesome, they played songs from every album - but the sound was way to temporary (the drums are awefull and I hate the synths) and Freddie had a lot of off-days relatively.

2) Which tour is your favourite of all times?
A Day At The Races Tour - News Of The World Tour

Love Of My Life, Tie Your Mother Down.
4) Which song do you like least in concerts?
It's hard to choose but..........I'd choose....Brighton Rock solo...sometimes it's boring
5) Which tour is the worst in your opinion?
The Works, although they had a good setlist, but freddie wasn't at his best, and they used a lot of synths (sometimes you hear more the synths than the guitar like in tie your mother down!) and the electronic drums were annoying...
