After figuring out some uploading plans (and preparing for the Races Tour debate), I am back with another Magic Tour show! While I hold the Magic Tour in high regard (often defending it), and is one of my favorite tours of Queen, there are a few shows that aren't nearly as good as other shows. This show is one of the weaker ones on the tour (it's not bad--don't worry). Before the show, the members of Queen got into a huge fight backstage (and ending up destroying the dressing room) due to internal conflicts. The show has a very "tense" stage atmosphere for a good portion of the show (then the tension loosens up during the acoustic section). Freddie's voice is pretty rough in spots (maybe he blew his voice during the fight?), and features some performances that wouldn't sound out of place during his weaker Magic Tour shows (Zurich, 2nd Wembley, Marbella, etc). His voice does improve as the gig goes on, and he delivers some surprising versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Hammer To Fall," "Radio Ga Ga," and "Friends Will Be Friends." The rest of the band are great as well (awesome guitar solo from Brian)!


Note: This recording has great quality, and is nearly complete (some cuts).

Note 2: The band have fun between "Hello Mary Lou" and "Tutti Frutti!"
