Well, Hrvoje ....perhaps he is not telling the truth ...because there was no booing ! Of that I am sure !

Well, good luck .... but don't feel bad if you don't get it ... ... it is not worth dealing with people who are difficult. The recording is bound to be quite bad in any case .. and is illegal !!

From what I've heard most of the 'booing' and negativity was from an idiot announcer.

Anyway.

cro, there is no such message on Bri's soapbox! check for yourselves. Anyways, if there was a such message or reply, it would be not wise to copy and paste it from there, as it states on the soapbox!

Interesting, you got a reply from Brian about this. Maybe you could ask him if the stories about the announcer calling them limy bastards and stuck-up pommies, mooning the audience, and their lighting rig breaking down are true or not.

Yeah... when Brian emails you, the sender's name is "Brian's Soapbox", not "Brian May".

Why not let him use it on his Soapbox but use it here instead..? I do not see the point.

I lived in Australia in the 70,s and remember the talk after the show very well. My recollection, and I am pretty sure this is how it went, is as follows.
Queen, largley unknown, played their set and were very well received. They did get calls for an encore. They were to be followed by an ozzie band that was very well known and popular at the time, whose name I forget, but sounded like Ambrosia. Perhaps that who it was. Anyway, the dick of an emcee egged the crowd on saying things like "we don't need these pommies back, we want an Aussie band", stuff like that.
Naturally the local and probably very drunk audience did boo, not about Queens performance, but at not wanting Queen to come out and wanting their local band instead. The press being what it is figured booing the band sounded better and so was born the story, albeit not an accurate one.
So there it is, now you know.

Look, it was over 30 years ago, he might be sketchy on the details. Also, the way it was put above, it seems Queen had left the stage and so they probably wouldnt have heard it.

This was an outdoor show with a few thousand people, not the tens of thousands we usually see at a Queen show, and the majority of people did not boo, but rather voiced their enthusiasm to see the band they mostly came to see anyway. Don't forget, Queen was not the headliner band.

I know you are wrong. Sorry mate, but it is true, Queen were not well known or well recieved in AU at this point. Brian is like anyone on else that has led a very busy life, we all seem to forget the bad and try to just remember the good.

Why on earth couldn`t he post it on his site?
Did you only ask him about the booing? If you ought to send such a mail to Brian, you should have more information about this, and not only ask about one certain thing.
