A 16-year-old girl was almost crushed in the crowd early on in Queen's set. A security guard noticed and pulled her away, subsequently giving her the seat of all seats - on a speaker next to bassist John Deacon!

Here is a picture of the cover of a Melody Maker from November 9, 1974, where this show in Leeds and last night in Liverpool are briefly mentioned (including a picture most likely taken on one of these two nights):

On the same page is a mention of John Lennon's pending appearance at an Elton John show at Madison Square Garden in New York later in the month, which would turn out to be the former Beatle's final rock concert. He had promised Elton that he would join him on stage if their duet, Whatever Gets You Thru The Night, hit number one - which it did.
