A petition from fans led to this show being added to the itinerary. Even though it was April, it was still very cold outside to the point that heaters had to be brought into the dressing room. Mercury caught a cold, and it affected his voice for the rest of the tour.

After Now I'm Here, Freddie introduces pianist Brian May formally for the first time, and invites the audience to sing along to the next song. "So get on with it! This is called "Teo Torriatte."

Freddie plays a uniquely drawn-out rubato piano intro to Don't Stop Me Now.

Brian gets the instrumentation of Love Of My Life wrong: "This is a song Freddie wrote about three years ago for the piano and voice, and we've adapted it for piano and guitar." Of course he intended to say "guitar and voice."

Spread Your Wings is in a peculiar place in the setlist tonight. Like last night, it was probably dropped in favour of Teo Torriate, but Freddie thought he'd give it a shot later in the show. But Queen would drop the John Deacon favourite from the set after this show because Freddie's voice was weakening. If You Can't Beat Them is dropped for a few shows, too.

This above average quality recording emerged in 2005, allegedy from a first gen tape. The cheering between encores is missing, but it is musically complete.

This is almost identical to the above RoIO in sound quality (it has been EQ'd a bit), but it's from a longer source tape including the cheering between the encores.

The pictures on the left half of the front cover were most likely taken at this show.
