Jailhouse Rock, We Will Rock You (fast), Let Me Entertain You, Need Your Loving Tonight, Play The Game, Mustapha, Death On Two Legs, Killer Queen, I'm In Love With My Car, Somebody To Love, Get Down Make Love, You're My Best Friend, Save Me, Now I'm Here, Fat Bottomed Girls, Love Of My Life, Keep Yourself Alive, drum/guitar solos, Brighton Rock (ending), Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Bohemian Rhapsody, Tie Your Mother Down, Sheer Heart Attack, We Will Rock You, We Are The Champions, God Save The Queen


Freddie is really in magical voice tonight. He sings Need Your Loving Tonight as strongly as the studio version. Also noteworthy is his brilliant vocal performance of Death On Two Legs, surpassing the studio version in many ways.

Brian's guitar solo is a bit long and wandering, but he really does create some pretty things tonight.

Freddie is at the piano for twelve songs at these early Game tour shows (nearly half the night). Perhaps this is why Somebody To Love would be retired from the set after this show. It would be revived in 1981.

This is the last show of the month, as the band take three weeks off before their next gig in Memphis on August 5.

The quality of this one is superb. Save Me cuts out at the end, and it seems Now I'm Here wasn't caught on tape. The encores are also missing.
