City: Canvey Island, UK
Venue: The Paddocks
Date: March 22, 1974


Freddie is playing a Wurlitzer in the last picture, not a piano. Freddie didn't yet own a piano at this point, and would play whatever the venue provided. No doubt tonight's versions of White Queen and Seven Seas Of Rhye were one of a kind.

Decades later, Roger Taylor frankly recalled this to be the worst show Queen ever played.
