This is another fantastic late 1977 show. Without a doubt this leg of the tour finds Queen at their peak on stage as an artistic entity. Freddie Mercury’s development as a singer is fully evident here as well, as he is dynamic and versatile – the thunder and the whisper, even amidst the heavier songs.

The beginning of Brian May’s solo evokes the doppler effect of a 747 flying overhead. He’s is migrating from pentatonic licks to more textural things in his solo spots on this tour, and it’s resonating with people on this night because there’s not a peep to be heard.

An audience tape of this show exists.
