The Crazy Tour was a short tour by Queen during November and December 1979. After the release of the single “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, the band decided to change the concert dynamic they used to do the last years. In this tour Queen would revisit smaller venues, many which held fewer than two thousand seats. Nonetheless, it was the highly awaited UK leg of the successful Jazz Tour.
A few concerts were held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, England for the benefit of the victims of war-torn Cambodia. This series of concerts was called “Concerts for the people of Kampuchea.”
‘The Crazy Tour’ is praised by fans as one of Queen’s best tours. Freddie Mercury’s vocals have recovered from the wear of the previous tour and are possibly the greatest they have ever been on stage.
