Hello Everybody !

I'd ask You if You know in which years Queen performed "Big Spender" ?
I'd like also to ask if They have ever performed a full version of this song...

Cheers !

I could be wrong, but I think they did it in 1975 and 1986.

Not sure about 71-72 as there aren't any recordings, but the rest are correct.

As for playing the complete song, I don't think they ever did. Every recording of the song is just a single verse/chorus, and usually a segway into either Modern Times RnR or Jailhouse Rock.

Who knows, maybe in 71-72 they could have played a longer version...
