This is a great show, with Freddie giving one of his best performances of the year. Overall the band sound very strong, as always in 1984.

Brian breaks a guitar string right at the end of Seven Seas Of Rhye. Since they're in the middle of a medley, Roger keeps going into the Keep Yourself Alive beat while Brian gets a Red Special copy. Meanwhile, Freddie improvises, referencing Back Chat for the first time since 1982. Brian returns about half a minute later and the song goes on as usual.

Before the guitar interlude half way through Love Of My Life, the audience give Freddie and Brian quite the ovation.

The first picture was taken during soundcheck by Wolf Kuntze. The rest of the photos were taken by Thomas Pannenberg and are copyrighted to him.

This is a great, atmospheric recording, although there is a lot of reverb as it's pretty distant. There are slight cuts during Dragon Attack, at the end of Now I'm Here, and at the beginning of Radio Ga Ga. It plays a quarter-tone too fast.

This alternate source is not quite as good quality, and only the second half of the show seems to exist. The only known copy is a horrible mp3 encoding.
