This is the last known performance of Need Your Loving Tonight on this side of the Atlantic. But interestingly enough, the addition of this song tonight leads to a fun historical tidbit - Queen play all five songs of side A on The Game, the first time they perform an entire album side at a show.

They now play two verses of Dragon Attack, but the guitar solo isn't included this time. It seems they were experimenting with the song early in its touring life.

Queen are still playing around a bit with the setlist, performing Tie Your Mother Down in the first encore, as confirmed by someone who attended the show. Another One Bites The Dust is the last song of the set proper this evening.

The pictures were submitted by Marc Michollet.

This is a transfer of the master copy. The tape ran much too slow, having a running length of 78 minutes.

The taper probably paused the tape after the Keep Yourself Alive drum solo to save space for "songs" since he only had so much tape.
