This video first emerged in 2005 when it was sold on eBay by the filmer (along with footage of a few other bands from the era). He captured some great close-ups of the band from about ten rows back. The audio was recorded by an external mike held by the filmer's brother.

As on most 8mm videos from this time period, only bits and pieces of songs were filmed, as not many people could afford two hours of film. When it was compiled back in the day, some songs ended up out of order, which wasn't uncommon at the time. The footage plays a bit too fast.

Not only is this film valuable because it is the only footage from this tour, but it is also currently the only available footage of the band performing Mustapha. Luckily, it is the one complete song.

Observe in Play The Game how John's head jerks up after Freddie's voice cracks!

Wardour was quick to bootleg the 8mm film. This DVD comes as a bonus with the bootleg of the Milwaukee audience tape called "It's A Killer."
