A couple nights ago Freddie played a bit of The Millionaire Waltz during the medley, and tonight he does an even longer segment.

Before the encores, the audience sing You'll Never Walk Alone, as had happened a couple years prior at Bingley Hall in Stafford.

The fifth pic was taken at the "now you can kiss my ass goodbye" part of Death On Two Legs. Pics 2-4 were taken by Jim Jenkins, and the rest were taken by Gillian Parry.

Here are some pro pics from the first night in Liverpool.

This is an awful copy of the Liverpool audience tape. A few songs are missing, and most of the banter between songs is cut out, clearly as an attempt to disguise the date of the recording. The sound has also been purposely degraded, and converted to mono.

The transfer is overblown starting with Donít Stop Me Now, and gets progressively worse. The sound itself is very good (although one channel is muffled), but by the end of the show the distortion is pretty well unbearable.

We Are The Champions is almost entirely missing.

A silent 13-minute Super 8 film exists from this show. It was filmed from the back of the theatre, but since the venue was so small (under 2,500 capacity) the footage doesn't appear to be too distant.
