Freddie now emerges for the encore of We Will Rock You on the shoulders of a crew member dressed as Darth Vader. After doing the gag every night for a few months, the band were forced to retire it after learning that Star Wars creator George Lucas was planning to threaten legal action against Queen (what a way to respond to free publicity!).

The third set of photos was taken by L.A. Ives, and the fourth by John Guarino.
