As usual on this tour, the band are on fire. Tonight they jam for a while before finally launching into Keep Yourself Alive.

This is the last time Queen would reverse the encores, as they'd soon revert back to the old faithful for good.

Classic Mercury at the end of the show: "You've been a great audience tonight. Merci beaucoup and all that."

This is a great copy of the second night in Brussels. It takes the taper a couple songs to get his gear set right.

Some copies of this recording have had the encores rearranged to be in the usual order of most other concerts from this era. They most certainly performed the show as written above.

This is many tape generations from the master, and Gypsy Eye have added their crackling sound as usual. The given date of December 12 is incorrect.

This alternate source is much worse quality. Many songs are missing.
