The band sound great tonight, and Freddie, although a bit careful in the first couple songs, still nails the key few high notes in Somebody To Love, The Millionaire Waltz, and Death On Two Legs.

A somewhat unique bit of banter: "We'd like to take you to the sort of softer, delicate side of Queen, something that Brian wrote a long time ago. This is called White Queen."

After Death On Two Legs, Freddie says, "Okay, we'd like to do a very good song that we haven't done for a long while. This is off the very first album. It goes something like this." He then plays the piano intro to Doing All Right, its first performance in about nine months. When compared to 1976 versions, Freddie's voice has noticeably developed in the last year.

A fan recalls how the music of Chopin played through the house for what seemed like an eternity before Queen finally went on. He says the band encored with Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, and that a fan managed to get onstage at some point of the show and danced with Freddie for a few seconds (of course, until the bodyguards got to her).

This is not so much a review as much as it's a letter to the editor of the Record Mirror mentioning this show.

These pictures were first seen on YouTube. It is the biggest haul of pictures from a single Queen show.

Although there's a bit of tape hiss, it's a nice-sounding recording overall. Although the music sounds pretty clear, the recording is distant, making some of the speeches between songs (especially the soft-spoken May's) practically indiscernible.
