Hey guys. I bought 2 tourbooks the other day off of ebay; The USA Jazz and the 1980 USA.

I was reading it yesterday I noticed that a pic of something has been cut out. Its the pic on the other side of the photoshoot during the CLTCL video.

Its hard to understand, I know. But can anybody tell me what the pic that has been cut out is?


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

Sorry I'm not able to answer your question....but I have a question for you. What the hell are in tourbooks anyway? I've never seen one and always wondered what they were about.

I still have the one I bought at a Queen concert in Los Angeles in 1980. I keep it in a mylar sleeve now. Anyway, I'm not sure which page you're referring to. The very last page has an ad for a Queen fan club membership, with an enrollment form that could be cut out at the bottom of the page. Is that the part you're missing?

They're souvenir booklets that you can buy at the concert along with the T-shirts and other merchandise. They include band photos, bios, tour dates, discographies, stuff like that.

The pic opposite CLTCL is the inside cover, with the USA map and tour dates. Unless you're missing the cover, and then the fan club stuff would be opposite.

Curious as to what's on the cover, and what page the CLTCL pic is in your version.

The cover shows freddie in front of Rogers kit with a lot of yellow lights around him. There arent page numbers so I cant point it out. All I know is that the 2 sided picture where it shows the guys posing for the CLTCL video, is missing the right side of that picture.

Cover-Freddie and drum kit and pizza oven lights

Inside cover- US tour dates and map

opposite (or page 1) - CLTCL video picture
(L-R standing: John, Roger, Babe 1, Babe 2, Brian
L-R sitting: Male 1, Freddie, Male 2)

next page (pg 2) - tour credits

next page (pg 3) - close up picture of John

Hope this is more helpful.

I looked through the book last night and I realized that there are 2 CLTCL pictures. Your refering to the first one. The one im talking about is towards the end. The picture after the pic im talking about is freddie with his head leaned back on stage.

Its a bit confusing.
