This is the fourth and final night at the Forum.

The band are full of energy at the beginning of the show, but they are a bit sloppy getting into the first verse of the fast We Will Rock You.

Freddie, after the third song: "This is our last night at the Forum, and we're gonna bust our balls for you. So stick around." He then introduces John Deacon's new composition, Need Your Loving Tonight, which is now much earlier in the set.

Freddie's final line of Get Down Make Love is as raunchy as it'd ever get, coming very close to the vibe of the studio version.

Once again, Freddie does a few Another One Bites The Dust adlibs in Now I'm Here. He must have been aching to play the song. Similarly, he would often sing Back Chat adlibs in early 1982 shows.

Brian adds a uniquely heavy touch to the interlude after the first chorus of Keep Yourself Alive. Freddie then delivers the second verse brilliantly.

Here's a review of one of these shows.

The pictures were submitted by Nino Trovato, Fabio Minero and Alessio Rizzitelli. It is uncertain which night they're from, but they're certainly not from the July 8 show.
