Date: May 1, 1979

Setlist:
We Will Rock You (slow/fast), Let Me Entertain You, Somebody To Love, Death On Two Legs, Killer Queen, Bicycle Race, I'm In Love With My Car, Get Down Make Love, You're My Best Friend, Now I'm Here, Teo Torriatte, If You Can't Beat Them, Dreamers Ball, Love Of My Life, '39, It's Late, Brighton Rock, Keep Yourself Alive, Mustapha (intro), Bohemian Rhapsody, Tie Your Mother Down, Sheer Heart Attack, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, God Save The Queen


For the second night in Fukuoka, If You Can't Beat Them is a bit later in the setlist than usual, in place of Don't Stop Me Now.

After You're My Best Friend, Freddie reads out a note given to him by an audience member: "To our dearest Queen, we love you forever. With love, from Matsuri Senka." The show then continues with his introduction to Now I'm Here. "We'd like to do a song right now. We'd like everyone to sing as much as possible. This is a song from the Sheer Heart Attack album. It goes like this."

He teases the audience with a bit of Mustapha after It's Late. He eventually sings the a cappella intro before starting Bohemian Rhapsody, just this once on the Japanese tour.

This is a second audience source. It is also distant, and has some light distortion as well as occasional tape speed issues.

It's Late is complete, which gives it some redeeming value.
