Freddie, after Flick Of The Wrist: "We'd like to do something totally new for you right now. It's a sort of a medley. Three of the tracks are on our new album released tomorrow [ed. actually the day after tomorrow, November 8], Sheer Heart Attack." He gets no response. "You've heard of Sheer Heart Attack! It's our new album out tomorrow." He receives a somewhat forced response.

Freddie sings aggressively and confidently tonight. Noteworthy is his delivery of the segment of The March Of The Black Queen.

The band have decided to swap Stone Cold Crazy and Liar in the setlist. After the medley and guitar solo, there are the two remaining singles, a fast-paced new song to blow the roof off with, then an old favourite followed by the anthemic closer. Queen were very strategic with their setlists right from the beginning.

Brian, before the last song: "This is from the new album. It's called In The Lap Of The Gods Revisited, and we would like you to sing along." That's a rather tall order, as the audience has never heard the song before! Its pairing in the setlist with Liar would last through the end of the North American 'A Day At The Races' tour.

The excellent pictures were first seen on YouTube. Note that Freddie doesn't have a piano bench - he's sitting on an ordinary chair!

This LP is missing many of the songs songs, and they've been shifted around. The quality is definitely not good. Judging by its title (lyrics from The Show Must Go On), this LP was released in the 90s, probably not long after Freddie Mercury died.
