Freddie sings a gorgeous version of Play The Game. In the last chorus, he nearly replicates his phrasing and overall delivery of the studio version.

The band decide to drop Fat Bottomed Girls for a few shows.

Bits of silent footage from this show, filmed by a single camera from the back of the venue, were shown on Argentinian TV in early 1981 along with some band interviews with Roberto Badia as a preview to the upcoming football stadium shows. There is about three minutes of footage in all, including clips of Jailhouse Rock, We Will Rock You (fast), Let Me Entertain You, Death On Two Legs, Get Down Make Love, Need Your Loving Tonight, Love Of My Life, Keep Yourself Alive, Roger's tympani solo, and Crazy Little Thing Called Love. There are some claims that virtually the entire show was recorded and later discarded.

A review (by someone who openly despises Queen) can be seen at http://www.queencuttings.com.

The second picture (and possibly third) was snapped by Lynn Goldsmith, and the last three were submitted by Valery Oganov, Fabio Minero and Alessio Rizzitelli respectively.

This bootleg from Breakdown is a bit better quality.

For some reason the last few seconds of Need Your Loving Tonight are missing.
