City: Madrid, Spain
Venue: Pabellon de Deportes del Real Madrid
Date: February 23, 1979

Six songs from the second night in Madrid were soon broadcast on a Spanish TV program called "Popgrama" (aired on March 7).

Since the songs shown were We Will Rock You (fast), Let Me Entertain You, Somebody To Love, Sheer Heart Attack (just some of the audio), We Will Rock You, and We Are The Champions, it would seem this is one of those cases where the TV station only filmed the first and last few songs, instead of wasting money and blank film for footage that wouldn't be used.

The TV station must have had the multi-track as its audio source, as there has been some level adjustment done in Somebody To Love. There is no lead vocal in the first verse, and part of the guitar solo is *only* guitar!

An interview during the day was also part of TV spot, where the band discussed the first night in Madrid amongst other things.

At the end of the concert, Freddie says, "Good night! Adios! Hasta pronto." Freddie and Brian always tried to learn a few words in the native language of the country they were playing in.

The station's archives opened up in 2011, and some of the footage was released on their website in broadcast quality.

Queen wouldn't return to Spain again until 1986.
