According to a fan who saw all four nights: "During each show Freddie flipped a deck of cards towards the audience during one of the later songs in the set. He flipped the cards in the air, littering the stage, where they were in short order joined by rose petals and assorted props and forgotten. On the last night, I went down to the front of the stage where I saw the cards up close - there were about 20 or so littering the stage - each card was the Queen of Hearts."

As revealed in this interview with Freddie, two girls nearly strangled him after the show whilst fighting over a scarf around his neck, leaving him with a few bruises.
