City: Frankfurt, Germany
Venue: Jahrhunderthalle
Date: December 4, 1974


Lynyrd Skynyrd opened for Queen at this show, and the audience, consisting largely of American GIs, liked the opening band far more than the main act. In fact, plenty of people left after Skynard finished their set.

Brian May's reaction after the gig: "We were just pouring it out and they were sucking it in, with nothing coming back. I tell you, for the first time in many months I felt like I'd done a hard day's work when I came off stage."

However, the second of these two reviews says the crowd warmed up to Queen by the end of the show: (1, 2)

Many thanks to Rob Schoorl for an article from Billboard magazine mentioning this show amongst others on the tour.
