Here is a review of this show at "The Igloo", which is more of a statement of the reviewer's disdain for the band.
In an uncharacteristic move (Queen was no stranger to bad reviews and had grown a sense of resilience to it), Brian May felt the need to respond with a letter to the editor a couple weeks later to set the record straight. At the time Pittsburgh's main industry, steel production, was well into its twilight, creating hard economic times for a fair portion of the population.
