Don't Stop Me Now returns to the setlist for the last three shows of the tour.

The intro to Dreamers Ball goes on for a bit longer than usual, and Freddie sings, "I'm ready for you babe. Yeah, any time." The audience surely don't know that this is a cue for the band to shift from the jam into the first verse of the song.

Brian had fun with the band intro before '39 each night. Tonight, Roger is "on various kinds of percussion and drums," John is "on various kinds of bass guitar," and Freddie is "on indisputable vocals."

Freddie has a chat with someone in the audience before introducing It's Late, and for some reason he makes a couple Village People references. "Are you from Japan? Are you in the navy? Do you like YMCA?" Although his upper register is gone, Mr. Mercury gives his all in It's Late with his middle range.
