Tear It Up sounds very close to the record version tonight.

After the second song, Freddie says, "Hello again, Brussels!" As this flyer indicates, this second night was added due to ticket demand, but they weren't able to book the venue for August 25.

Freddie is experimenting furthermore with falsetto vocals towards the end of the tour, lending some neat sounds to Under Pressure and the improv after Dragon Attack tonight. It's well worth noting that this version of Now I'm Here is a very edgy one!

"C'mon, let's do a jam", suggests Freddie before Stone Cold Crazy. The band seem to have a great bit of fun for a minute before starting the song.

With his voice weakening, Freddie struggles a great deal with the high notes in Radio Ga Ga and I Want To Break Free - although his delivery of the bridge of the latter is soulful and expressive, followed by a great solo from Brian.

The first set of pictures were taken by Helly Lemmy - although some may be from the August show (the photographer unfortunately can't remember which are which). Thanks to Raf Foubert for tracking them down.

The last two pictures were submitted by Alessio Rizzitelli.

The given date on the back cover of this 1985 bootleg is incorrect.

There is some tape hiss, but it is only really a problem in the quieter moments, particularly in the acoustic set.

This is a 1993 re-release, made by a German record dealer who purchased the original acetate used for King's Favourite. The quality is a bit worse. 100 copies were produced.

"Already Infected" is a box set that also includes a cassette.

This is the third re-release. Its cover is a rip-off of a Queen tribute album from Japan (the last scan seen above).

140 copies were produced - half with white vinyl and half with blue.

This is packaged in a cardboard slipcase designed to look like the LPs. It still has the wrong date printed on the back cover.

The same LP source is used, but it seems the bootleg company transferred it with a noise gate, as the tape hiss is essentially eliminated (and ultimately leaving it with a bit less treble), making for a more balanced sound overall.

The volume level doubles for disc 2 (but it doesn't overblow, as disc 1 is too quiet).

This alternate source also sounds great. Aside from a very slight gap in Under Pressure, the recording is complete.

Uxbridge bootleged the second source in February 2011. They filled in the gap in Under Pressure using the King's Favourite bootleg CD - a seamless cross-fade edit.
