This is the first of three nights at Wembley Arena (known as Empire Pool at the time). Although the June '89 issue of Record Collector) magazine claims the shows were properly recorded, sources close to the band have since denied this.

The band perform Liar instead of Stone Cold Crazy tonight. Freddie asks the audience, "Liar or Stone Cold Crazy?" Everyone shouts for Liar! "We're gonna do Liar."

The first picture was submitted by Julien Cohen. The last three pics were taken by Gillian Parry, and could be from any of the three nights.
