Venue: Joe Louis Arena
Date: September 20, 1980

Freddie stopped the show part way through Love Of My Life because the rowdy audience was drowning out Brian's guitar.

Around this time the Detroit Lions football team had adopted Another One Bites The Dust as an anthem. When Queen performed it as an encore with Freddie donning a Lions' cap, the arena exploded.

The picture is from a superb book called "The Ultimate Illustrated History of the Crown Kings of Rock" by Phil Sutcliffe. Go and buy it at
