After the excitement of last night's performance, the band hold back a bit tonight.
Freddie's mic died on him at some point during this show, and it apparently took him a little while to get back into the swing of things.
A complete audience recording of this show exists, although the taper has been in the shadows since the late 70s. His recording of Thin Lizzy's opening set emerged in early 2010.

Sweet Lady [cut], Bohemian Rhapsody [cut], Liar [cut]
Considering the age of this 8mm film, the picture quality is incredible (but the sound is very muffled). The filmer is focused on Freddie most of the time, but there are still some amazing bits of footage of Brian and John, especially in Liar - only because Freddie was in the picture with them!
Sometimes old tape stories are legendary in their exaggeration, but the story goes that the filmer was caught filming the night before at Madison Square Garden, and was forced by one of Queen's bodyguards to turn over the film reels to Freddie Mercury himself. Undeterred, he filmed these reels of footage the following night.
