This is the final show of the European tour, as Freddie points out after It's A Hard Life. "It's nice to do it in Vienna with you guys. You people are very friendly towards Queen and we appreciate it very much." A seemingly honest moment then goes to waste: "What other bullshit will I tell them? Oh, let's do Mustapha, yes."

Brian once again plays Brahms' Lullaby during Love Of My Life.

Freddie's mic dies at some point after the verse of Stone Cold Crazy, and by the time he realizes it the brief bit of Great King Rat has come and almost gone. Brian's solo that follows has some pretty gorgeous moments.

Freddie does some Back Chat adlibs in Another One Bites The Dust, surely the last live reference to the funky Hot Space tune.

Since there are no known complete setlists from the Sun City shows next month, this show in Vienna may perhaps be the last performances of Stone Cold Crazy, Great King Rat, and Spike Edney's keyboard solo, as they would not be heard in 1985.

The picture was taken by Dave Matkin.

The Machines intro at the beginning of the show is missing, as is a bit of tape after Crazy Little Thing Called Love for a tape flip. The first slight bit of I Want To Break Free is missing too. Saving space for tape, the taper (who also recorded last night's show) resumed recording shortly after the keyboard intro was heard.

The quality slightly improves after It's A Hard Life. It plays slightly too slow.

This is a much higher generation copy, but it is more complete. It contains the bookends of the show, and bits of tape after It's A Hard Life and Crazy Little Thing Called Love missing on the copy above. However, it's missing part of Brian's speech before Love Of My Life.
