Late in the tour, the band seem to be going through the motions for the first few songs, particularly Freddie. But he soon loosens up towards the end of Now I'm Here. Never is the last section of the song identical on this tour.

After Love Of My Life, Freddie starts a bit of vocal improv and demands, "Give me a key. Any fucking key!" Brian plays a D chord and they're off to the races. The band spend a couple minutes improvising, during which Freddie does a vocal exchange with the audience using bits he used to do during Now I'm Here on previous tours. He also sings the words 'Keep Yourself Alive' a couple times towards the end.

Before Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Freddie leads the audience through a couple choruses of Teo Torriatte, done a cappella. The second time around, Brian plays the chords in the background on his acoustic guitar. Clearly the band were amidst rehearsing to slot the song back into the set.

Like he did a couple nights ago, Freddie does his Aretha 'Jump to it' reference in Another One Bites The Dust. He'd do it at the last couple shows of the tour too.

This copy is not far from the master tape, although the DAT transfers have brought along some hiss that's noticable in the quieter moments. A Led Zeppelin collector once said it best:

"What is the point of doing DAT transfers over analog cables? That's like making a copy of a DVD movie by pointing a video camera at my TV and recording it."

Wardour's copy uses a slightly better version of the audience tape, although it plays a quarter-tone too fast.

This alternate source doesn't sound particularly great.

A third audience source exists as well, and its quality is reportedly not great either.
