Freddie, after Play The Game: "Alright my little froggies. Bien. Is everything bien?" He laughs at himself as he seems to have learned how to use one more French word. He then starts to introduce the next song, but gets distracted by an audience member. "Are you Italian? Are you spaghetti?" Hopefully this was nothing more than a bit of innocent fun with the common stereotypes.

By this point in the tour, Freddie's heartfelt vocal exchange with the audience before Save Me, including things like "it's all okay" and "everything's gonna be alright," has become a regular occurrence.

A very unique thing happens before Fat Bottomed Girls - Freddie introduces the song by singing bits of the chorus, leading to a call and response with the audience.

The set of pictures were taken by Gianluca. The last one was submitted by Fabio Di Gianni.

This alternate source sounds very nice, with minimal tape hiss.

Since both tapers used 90-minute tapes, the same songs are cut on both sources, but in different places. Love Of My Life cuts out during the instrumental break, and about half of God Save The Queen is present.

The two tapers were probably very close to one another, as the audience noise is very similar at times but not exact.
