After the second song, Freddie says, "It's nice to be back here in Filthy-delphia," to a mixture of cheers and boos. "I gotcha!" He tries to recover with a usual, "We're gonna have a good show tonight; I can tell," but he definitely won't win everyone over so quickly! After a fantasticly-sung version of Dreamers Ball, he attempts to recover: "Philadelphia seems to be nice for us." He gets a great cheer for it.

Like a few nights ago in New York, before If You Can't Beat Them, it seems something has been thrown on stage. Freddie says, "What's this? It's almost Christmas."

After '39, Freddie says, "You guys say something, go!" He then holds the mic out for a few audience members, and they shout little more than inaudible gibberish. He'd do this at a few shows this month.

At the end of the show: "Thank you, Philadelphia. We shall always remember you."

The first picture was taken by Neal Preston.
