Haven`t you heard any of the audio files posted here on Queenzone about it?

This subjet has been dealt with several times before.

-The three concerts in Mexico were sold out, and some people even stood outside the venues.

-Freddie`s voice was at its peak.

-QUEEN gigs in Mexico as well as those held in the 80`s are among the best Queen concerts ever in my opinion. (We must remember Queen always have given their best alive).

-Something not very many people know is that:

QUEEN were with some press people at a night club in the Pink Zone in Mexico city,this was an informal gathering organized by Jim Beach for some fortunate showbiz people as a compensation since Queen were not able to give a press conference at the airport (due to the fact that the place was chaotic- very crowded). A friend of mine attended such gathering. Jim Beach invited them on one condition : Not to tell a word about it to anyone, if any journalist or camera were seen at the place, the event would be cancelled.

-The event was held, and even Freddie sat at the piano and played something, unfortunately my friend (a reliable BEATLE know-all Fan who some time before got to talk to JOHN LENNON on the phone)can`t remeber what tune it was,because he was quite impressed at being with one of the most popular groups at the time.
