Freddie, early in the show: "That was one of our new songs called Action This Day. This is called..." He doesn't finish his sentence, as he instead decides to play the piano intro to Play The Game as he usually had done on past tours. Later, his vocal solo and piano accompaniment at the peak of Somebody To Love are simply one-of-a-kind.

Get Down Make Love runs straight into Under Pressure. It is the last time Queen would play the full version of the song, as all subsequent performances of it will skip the final chorus with the middle section leading directly into Brian May's guitar solo. Brian doesn't play his solo tonight - a rarity, and the last time this would ever happen.

Before Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Freddie mentions Mott The Hoople, and then introduces Morgan Fisher as the fifth member of the group. The audience get a bit restless not long after Freddie has introduced the song, leading them to sing the first verse on their own before Freddie finally plays the guitar intro.

The last five pictures were submitted by David van Dijk.

There is a lot of tape hiss and the sound is very muffled, although it clears up a bit for the encores. There are some slight speed issues in the first couple songs.
