As far as I know, they performed "Killer Queen" in late 1974, the time "Sheer Heart Attack" was released in November. I don't know how many times they played, sorry.

top of the pops played clips of queen videos very often and i used to have a list of all of them but i cannot find it. it was in a queen fanclub magazine from 1994 or 1995 but yeah actually in person i think the killer queen 1974 and las palabras de amor 1982 was all they did.

Well, lets see, there was also Seven Seas of Rhye, and Good Old Fashioned Loverboy.. I believe SSOR was done in 74 and GOFLB was done in 76.

Wasn't there also Las Palabras De Amor which was 1982 when Hot Space was being released?


I hate to say this, but you're asking the wrong person because I don't know. I'm sorry, dude.

After i had seen Queen as a support to Mott the Hoople on December 8th in The Hague 1974, i witnessed their "Killer Queen" videoshoot in the AVRO studios 2 and a half weeks later. My dad had to be there to do a radio interview, and the studios of Top Pop were right around the corner. Being 11 then, i recognised this band from the show i witnessed before, and was allowed to sit quiet and watch them while they were filmed then.... but I really became a fan when i saw the BoRap clip the first time and heared that song. ANATO has been my nr.1 Queen album ever since. So, Killer Queen i know for sure , was on the dutch version of Top Pop, and was added to some videoclip-collection tapes decades after it was filmed. It has always remained a rarity in a way. It is the only clip they ever filmed in Holland.

I was responding MightyMan's question when they quoted my post that I didn't see Queen's appearance in 1982. The only Queen appearance on Top Of The Pops that I witnessed was "Killer Queen" in 1974. It's not my fault that MightyMan asked me if Queen performed "La Palabras De Amor" in 1982, which I didn't know about. Well, at least I now know that they performed "Seven Seas Of Rhye" the same year they performed "Killer Queen."

I can confirm, fair people, that I saw the 1982 performance of Las Pablas Des La Armor. Freddie was dressed in a tux with a gold mike, and on the commantary (Greatest Video Hits 2) I think it was Roger that said the live audiance was not allowed to watch them because the people were going crazy when they heared that Queen was on the set!

Hope this helps,'
