The band still have that extra edge, as they're riding on the post-Live Aid energy early in the tour. Brian gives much more than usual to Tie Your Mother Down.

Freddie, after Under Pressure: "I think this is the hottest gig we've ever done so far, I tell you. It's so fucking hot!"

Right after the energetic impromptu, culminating with a killer drum solo, Freddie says, "Well done, Rog!" His drum solo at the end of Now I'm Here is a ripping one as well.

Freddie jokingly growls at himself in the second verse of Hello Mary Lou after forgetting the lyrics once again. He'd continue to have fun with this song on the tour.

Freddie sings the intro to Mustapha before Bohemian Rhapsody, which he would do a few times on the tour. He then gives one of his greatest ever vocal deliveries of the iconic song.

Brian May misses the first half of his solo in Hammer To Fall, and probably as a result of this he opts out of the jam in Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Otherwise he has a brilliant night at the office.

Freddie briefly forgets a line in Friends Will Be Friends, and a split second later he speak-sings it to make up for the lost time.

This would be Queen's last show at the Forest National, a venue the band had visited at least twice on every European tour since 1978.

The first picture was submitted by Raf Foubert. Pics 2 through 8, taken by Yvonne Lindenhof, were submitted by Ducksoup. Pics 9 through 19 were taken by Helly Lemmy. Pics 28 through 33 were submitted by Alessio Rizzitelli.

This is average quality, cutting out during We Are The Champions. Some copies of this show have the rest of Champions and God Save The Queen tagged on from a higher gen copy (or perhaps even a different show).

This is a third audience source from Brussels, the best of the three. The quality is excellent throughout, although there are a few slightly distorted spots towards the end of the show.

Only a few seconds are missing for tape flips after I Want To Break Free and Bohemian Rhapsody, and between encores.
