After two nights off, Freddie puts in one of his better early 1979 performances. He delivers the songs with more ease and precision than he had in the past few weeks.

Freddie pours water on the audience after a great version of Somebody To Love. "Just to wake you up a little," he insists. "Straight away we'd like to do a song from an album called A Night At The Opera, and..." Someone in the audience distracts him. "That's cute," he responds. "This song's about a dirty, nasty man. We call him Death On Two Legs."

Freddie forgets a couple lines in the second verse of Teo Torriatte. It's otherwise a very nice version of the song, with the audience singing along in Japanese as always.

Although most copies are about 50 minutes long, at the correct speed it should be five minutes shorter, as it plays a whole tone too slow.
