These pictures were taken by Pim Nauta, and submitted by Ducksoup.

As evidenced by this early poster, the third night was added due to ticket demand.

The support act, a German band called Craaft, didn't last long because they were booed off the stage. When it was announced that they were going to play their last song, the audience cheered.

Freddie, after Queen's second song: "Hello! We're back again!" Like he did last week, he then asks the audience to sing their football song for him. They happily comply, during which Freddie says, "Nice one."

His potent delivery of the second chorus of Is This The World We Created is the closest he'd ever come to replicating the magic of the studio version.

Brian May is in a creative mood during Bohemian Rhapsody, as the second half of his solo is completely off the charts.

This Dutch article (submitted by Raf Foubert) references this show, and was clearly written by a big fan of the band.

The Dutch promoter who booked these shows later stated how he regretted not doing a stadium concert in 1986, instead of 3 nights at this (comparably small) venue in Leiden.

Side A of the 60-minute cassette runs out after Another One Bites The Dust, and the taper takes quite a while to get it flipped.

There is apparently a slightly longer version that cuts out not too long into Radio Ga Ga.

This alternate source sounds better than the old source, and is nearly complete.

The taper was positioned near the mixing desk. He says Bohemian Rhapsody is cut because the battery needed to be replaced. A security guard showed up, so he chose this moment to make the switch.
