These pictures were taken by bookworm.

Queen try out Sheer Heart Attack as the second number once again, as they did in Cologne.

Freddie has a bit of trouble with Staying Power tonight, as it's such a demanding song to sing. Afterward he says, "Yeah, there's a bitch of a song to sing." He plays a couple chords on the piano to begin Somebody To Love, and adds, "This is another bitch." But he gives a wonderful rendition of the Aretha-inspired classic.

Brian plays the decending half note arpeggios in his guitar solo as he did towards the end of the version heard on Live Killers in 1979, but with a slight added rhythmic twist.
