Best unofficial Queen live audio sources


Last updated: March 31, 2017



This page is my effort to provide a list of the definitive versions of the known unofficial recordings of Queen concerts. This list will certainly be continuously updated, since new audience tapes and bootleg CDs/DVDs will continue to emerge.

Click here for an introduction consisting of many necessary thoughts and facts regarding the search for the best recording(s) of each show.

The lengths of the recordings are rounded to the nearest minute.


Here is a quick guide to the sound quality ratings:

A+ Superb sound quality
A Great sound quality; minor flaws
A- Very good sound quality; some disturbance
B+ Reasonable sound quality; some instruments are not clearly heard
B Mediocre sound quality; rough but may be listenable
B- Mediocre sound quality; no longer listenable
C+ Poor sound quality; for die-hard fans only
C Very poor sound
C- Abysmal; one can barely tell which song (or even which artist) it is
